Great Rose: Cinco De Mayo

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.

  • Height / Habit: Medium / Rounded & bushy
  • Bloom / Size: Large, ruffled, double
  • Petal count: About 25
  • Parentage: Topsy Turvy x Julia Child
  • Fragrance: Moderate sweet apple
  • Hybridizer: Carruth – 2009
  • Comments: Smokier when it’s cool outside.

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
