Like all plants in the Endless Summer® Collection, Twist-n-Shout produces abundant blooms on both old and new wood all summer long. Lacy deep-pink centers are surrounded by gorgeous blossoms of pink or periwinkle blue, depending on soil type. Sturdy red stems and glossy deep green leaves turn red-burgundy in fall to offer year-round interest in the garden. Easy to care for and hardy to zone 4, Twist-n-Shout is an elegant stand-alone specimen, dramatic in combination with other plants, and compact enough for containers.

Cinco de Mayo™
This Weeks floribunda – in a smoky lavender & rusty red-orange blend is a seedling of Weeks’ Julia Child and puts a whole new spin on ‘flower power’. The clusters of blooms never stop poppin’ open on this powerfully flowerful Floribunda. Mysteriously colored & deliriously novel…it’s an indescribable blending of smoked lavender & rusty red-orange. Yet it’s perfectly blendable with any color in the garden, whether it’s atop a rose tree, planted in mass or nestled amongst your favorite perennials. The super-clean glossy-green foliage mirrors the flowers, adding even more pizazz to this bushy rounded flower factory.

Even with a cast of thousands to compete for attention, 2009 winner “Cinco de Mayo” stands out with the confidence of a woman who knows who she is and isn’t afraid to show-off. This floribunda flaunts its flirty fiesta flowers. The colors of its petals swirl like the clouds of a thunderstorm at sunset. Russet reds, mellow lavenders: they layer and mingle like the colors of sunset on the Mexican Riviera just as brightness succumbs to seductive darkness. This is a rose which is the floral equivalent of Selma Hayak. – Lydia Plunk Garden Writer
