Name: Nicole
KORicole - Kordes, Germany
Parentage: seedling x Bordure Rose

Nicole is a beautiful floribunda rose introduced in 1985 and has the most stunning coloration that everybody seems to notice.  I planted two Nicole on my front yard at my old house and people who passed by the house noticed it right away. They stopped, admired it and touched and smelled the rose to find out if it was real.  Nicole is vigorous, disease resistant and blooms continuously.  The 25-35 petal bloom is white edged in cherry-pink with light fragrance.  The four inch flower come in clusters of three to five blooms on a strong and very thorny stem and makes a lovely bouquet.  It has dark, shiny leathery leaves.  Nicole is a top exhibition rose and a great garden rose too. 

Some rosarians recommend planting Nicole in the back of the border.  I planted two Nicole roses on opposite sides of the walkway in front of my old house where aybody who comes by the house can appreciate its beauty.  The above photo of Nicole was taken at its second season.  I just ordered two Nicole roses and planted one in front of my new townhouse and will plant one across the walkway in front of my neighbor’s townhouse.

Roses are not difficult to grow contrary to popular belief. Why do you think Roses have been around for millions of years?  They thrive in cemeteries with benign neglect.  All they need are food, water and sunlight.  Just like you and me.
