Hot Cocoa™

Patent Floribunda

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 globs 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.
