Description

Cultivar: Drop Dead Red
Class: Floribunda

So velvety…soooo intense…just a jaw-droppingly delicious red… especially set against the highly-glossed deep green leaves that mirror all the eye-popping action. This killer color is truly a 'stop 'em dead in their tracks' kinda red that's certain to lure you to linger. And it's THAT red to the very finish of the flower…making this bushy shiny showy plant a natural for the landscape. Best flower size in cooler conditions.

Care

Sun Needs: Roses bloom the best in full sun. Choose a location with at least 6 hours of sun per day. Morning sun is more kind to the plant.
Soil/Water Needs: Rich, sandy loam is the preferred soil for roses. Amend difficult soils with humus, or consider building up the beds to ensure good drainage. Roses will not tolerate soggy, wet roots. Provide a slow, deep soaking with each irrigation. Sandy soils require more watering than clay soils. Hot temperatures should prompt more frequent irrigation. Only wet the foliage in very early morning hours.
