Day Breaker roseDay Breaker is an upright, bushy floribunda with bright, multi-shade blooms in yellow, blending to pink and apricot. From pointed and shapely buds, its spiraled blooms grow to 4 to 4½ inches in diameter, with 30 to 35 pedals per flower, each nestled among dark, glossy green foliage on a plant that reaches a medium height.

Day Breaker is an awakening of the senses, not only for its exquisite beauty, but also for its sharp moderate tea fragrance. Day Breaker truly earns its floribunda classification with its brilliantly colorful, long-lasting clusters of flowers in a hardy, continuous bloom.

Hybridized by Gareth Fryer, Day Breaker is being introduced by Edmunds’ Roses of Wilsonville, Ore.

Honey Perfume™

Honey Perfume roseHoney Perfume is an upright and well-branched floribunda with apricot yellow blooms. Pointed, shapely buds open to reveal beautiful, four-inch blooms with petal counts of 25 to 30 nestled amongst dark green, glossy foliage that accentuates its color.

Growing to about 3 1/2 feet high and 2 1/2 feet wide Honey Perfume exhibits a great spicy scent and very good resistance to disease, including rust and powdery mildew.

Hybridized by Keith Zary, Honey Perfume is being introduced by Jackson & Perkins Wholesale, Inc. of Medford, Ore.

Memorial Day™

Memorial Day roseLike the holiday of the same name, Memorial Day is truly worth celebrating. Expertly representing the most popular class of modern roses — hybrid tea — this medium-tall, upright and bushy variety features very large, full, spiraled blooms with more than 50 petals per flower. Evolving from pointed and ovoid buds, Memorial Day’s clear pink flowers are accented with a lavender wash and grow to up to 5 inches in diameter. Its long cutting stems are beautifully clothed with rich green foliage to accent the large blossoms.

With its classic, strong damask rose fragrance, a single Memorial Day rose can fill an entire room with sweet rose perfume. A vigorous and productive performer, Memorial Day is highly disease resistant and especially loves hot weather, particularly for unfurling its commemorative rose petals. It makes a great, easy-to-grow addition to any garden.

Memorial Day’s hybridizer is Tom Carruth. It’s being introduced by Weeks Wholesale Rose Grower of Upland, Calif.
