Description

Cultivar: Hot Cocoa
Class: Floribunda

The colorful hues vary with different climates. Maybe it’s chocolate, maybe it’s smoky or brick or russet. You’ll be amazed by the beauty and interest that this Floribunda will create in your garden. Easy to grow.

Mysterious, indescribable, elusive…whatever! There's just no other rose color quite like this. Pointed buds of deep rust unfurl to reveal a chocolate haze of velvety smoked tones that can even take on a purply cast. Set against gobs of glossy foliage, the ruffled fragrant flowers are mirrored by super-green leaves. Easy vigor and natural disease-resistance make it a must for every garden. Keeps on smokin' even when the weather turns warm. Only available budded.

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.
