Rainbow Sorbet is as cool and delicious as it sounds. This multicolor floribunda harkens back to the popular variety Playboy from which it is a descendant.
More rugged and winter hardy, Rainbow Sorbet shows a resistance to black spot similar to many shrub roses on the market. With a symphony of bright color uninterrupted throughout the season, Rainbow Sorbet can be used either as a powerful accent or as a bold border for those who like to make a statement in their garden.
Rainbow Sorbet was developed by Ping Lim of Bailey Nurseries and is being introduced by The Conard Pyle Co. of West Grove, Penn.
