Nearly Wild Floribunda Rose

Anonymous added on April 26, 2011 | Answered

I just recently purchased two Nearly Wild Floribunda roses. I was attracted to them because they looked so different than the other roses I have in my yard. Most attractive to me was the way they were shaped; they have a long trunk-like stem coming out of the earth, with a round mass of green leaves and bright pink and white flowers on top that is gorgeous and so fragrant! Since I have been researching these beauties, I haven't seen any photos or descriptions of them in this shape. Is this an unusual or unhealthy shape? Or am I just not finding anything about them?

It sounds like to me that you have purchased what is known as a tree rose. They graft a rose bush of some kind on top of a hardy tree stock and thus you have a rose bush growing and blooming at the top of truly a young tree. Here is a link to some information on the floribunda rosebush part of the tree rose: http://www.helpmefind.com/gardening/l.php?l=2.4449&tab=1

If this link does not take you directly to the Nearly Wild floribunda rose, then just do a search for your rose named Nearly Wild at http://www.helpmefind.com and that will take you to the information on the top rose bush part of your new tree roses. In addition, here is a link about tree roses: http://home.howstuffworks.com/tree-rose.htm
