Rosa Bonica® (Floribunda Rose) is an irresistible variety of shrub roses that produces generous sprays of semi-double, shell-pink flowers nicely complimented by the dark, glossy foliage. Bushy and sturdy, this spreading small shrub is a repeat bloomer that is highly reliable and almost disease free. Very light fragrance.

  • Its noteworthy qualities have earned it many awards, including the Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society and the All-America Rose Award. Named World’s Favorite Rose in 1997!
  • Blooming in flushes from late spring until frost, it remains attractive throughout, with its flowers replaced by a wonderful display of bright red hips which will last long into the winter.
  • Growing up to 3-4 ft. tall (90-120 cm) and spreading 4-5 ft wide (120-150 cm), it makes a good flowering hedge. It may reach up to 13 ft. height (400 cm) as a climber. Spectacular when combined with the cool blue colors of salvia, nepeta, or lavender.
  • Best grown in full sun or partial shade, in rich, fertile with adequate moisture, well-drained soils. Tolerates some shade.
