Julia Child

Patent Floribunda

Just before our wonderful American icon left us, she selected this exceptional rose to bear her name. Julia loved the even butter gold color & the licorice candy fragrance. Yet it wasn't just the old-fashioned blooms that inspired the recipe. The perfectly rounded habit, super glossy leaves & great disease resistance finish off the dish. An awesome AARS award winner – a right & proper honor for a dear friend.   Cultivar: WEKvossutono Patent #: 18,473 Class: Floribunda Flower Color: Warm golden yellow Fragrance: Strong sweet licorice & spice Bud Form: Pointed & full Flower Form: Old-fashioned, very full Flower Size: Medium, up to 3½" diameter Petal Count: Over 35 Stem Length: Medium Plant Habit: Medium-low Growth Habit: Very rounded & bushy Foliage Color: Bright super-glossy green Disease Resistance: Excellent Hybridizer: Tom Carruth—2006 Parentage: [(Voodoo x Rosa soulieana derivative) x Summerwine] x Top Notch Introduced By: Weeks Roses AARS Winner: 2006   *Info and photo courtesy of Weeks Roses.
