Cinco de Mayo
Cinco de Mayo brings fiesta of flowers to every garden. Mysteriously colored and deliriously novel…it’s an indescribable blending of smoked lavender and rusty red-orange. This festive rose may be impossible to describe but you’ll love the endless bounty of multi-colored clusters sitting amongst clean, glossy green foliage and dark red new growth. The flowers, which hold well and are fast to repeat, radiate the smell of fresh-cut golden apples. As an AARS Winner, this floribunda has fantastic disease resistance and has performed exceptionally well across the country with little-to-no care. As the offspring of the 2006 AARS award-winning Julia Child rose, Cinco de Mayo enlivens any garden, and it’s clean, round habit is ideal for use as a hedge or in a border with mixed perennials.
Cinco de Mayo was hybridized by Tom Carruth and is introduced by Weeks Roses of Rancho Cucamonga, Calif.
