Take time and smell the rosesRoses have been around for millions of years which just prove that roses are not difficult to grow. The Rose is also our National Floral Emblem and the state flower of several states.  

This eye catching floribunda has pointed, maroon buds that open into a 3-4 inches double (25-30 petals) or semi-double (9-16 petals) dark red blooms with bright yellow stamens.  Europeana is a heavy bloomer, blooming freely from spring to late fall.  It blooms in clusters and make for a lovely bouquet with mild fragrance.  Foliage is dark green but new growth is reddish and stay that way until the rose blooms, growing to a height of 2 to 3 ft.  I had two Europeana in Zone 7 and they were slow to start but a fabulous rose nonetheless.  It is heat tolerant but susceptible to mildew.
