Marmelade Skies, a floribunda. Good Texas Rose and Early Bloomer. I prefer this to Tropicana because of its prolific blooms and compact and robust dark green leaves, though Tropicana is a Hybrid Tea Rose. The only other rose in the Texas garden that comes close to matching this bloom for bloom is Cinco de Mayo, another floribunda which also has a companion Hybrid Tea, Hot Chocolate. That is The Generous Gardner in pale white in the background, a climber.
Blooms all season in floribunda cluster of 5 to 8 double blooms blooming all season on each strong stem.
It’s leaves are leathery and the shrub is hardy and disease resistant.
