Q. Nearly Wild Floribunda Rose

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

Q. Are All Floribunda Roses Pink

I thought I bought Golden Showers; however, the tag under the bag said Floribunda, which are usually pink. Golden Showers is yellow. I know Golden Showers can be a climber, but is it a Floribunda a bush too?

Golden Showers is a yellow climbing rosebush and a pretty one too. Floribunda rosebushes can be many different colors actually. They are usually more bushy that the hybrid tea and grandiflora rosebushes. Take a look at the article at this link: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/roses/polyantha-floribunda-roses.htm

The rose blooms pictured at the start of that article do happen to be pink and that rosebush is a floribunda. However floribundas can be red, yellow, white, deep apricot and even some blended colors.

A nice pink flowering floribunda that blooms alot in my rosebeds is named Sexy Rexy. Dislike the name but love its constant blooms. Some others would be rosebushes named: Changing Times, Orchid Romance, Passionate Kisses and perhaps one named Tickled Pink.
