Wayside Gardens Black Cherry Floribunda Rose

It may get its name from the large, nearly black buds that begin its marvelous blooms, but Black Cherry? undoubtedly gets its fine reputation from the exquisite deep red flowers and rich, old-fashioned damask scent with which it fills the g...arden all summer. An old-fashioned fragrance that may remind you of your grandmothers garden, it is evocative and irresistible. Its no wonder it was named our Floribunda of the YearŽ in 2006! The blooms, which open from attractive pointed, ovoid buds, are fully double, 3 to 4 inches wide, and very long-lasting after cutting. This floribunda begins flowering in early summer and continues in waves all season, especially if deadheaded promptly. Vigorous and easy, it is heat tolerant and resistant to such diseases as powdery mildew and rust, which makes it easier to grow in warmer climates. Black Cherry? reaches 3 to 4 feet high and wide, suitable as a low hedge or container subject as well as a border standout. Its flowers are fade-proof and exquisitely formed. Make this reblooming delight an integral part of your sunny garden for many years to come! Plant in well-drained soil in full sun. Remove spent flowers to encourage rebloom. Spring pruning is recommended. Old and dead wood should be removed and canes that cross need to be cut back. Gardeners in warmer climates should cut back the remaining canes by about one-third, while those in colder areas will probably want to prune a little more than that. read more
