Floribunda gets its namesake from the literal Latin meaning, “many flowering”. They are a cross-breed between a frail yet majestic Hybrid Tea Roses and the virile and erratic-blooming polyantha rose native to Chine, Japan and Korea. They inherit the best qualities of two parents. What the polyantha rose lacked in beauty and fragrance are being compensated by the genes of a Hybrid Tea rose. What the Hybrid Tea Rose lacks in biological imperviousness, the polyantha rose bequeaths such quality.
Here then, are some fine examples of Red Floribunda Roses and their respective growers.
