Frankly Scarlet Floribunda Rose

Rosa 'JACrepin' PP#19,510

With bold red blooms and an enticing spicy fragrance, you'll never want to show this beauty the road! 'Frankly Scarlet' was selected for its quick rebloom, compact size, and incomparable beauty, making it an instant classic upon its introduction. The large, clear red, 4-inch blooms of this prolific floribunda practically beg to be cut for bouquets. Borne in abundant clusters on 12- to 16-inch stems, they open from long, pointed, ovoid buds, displaying 20 to 25 petals and holding their color beautifully as they mature and exude an irresistibly spicy, peppery scent. They arise continuously throughout their early summer to late summer season.

'Frankly Scarlet' grows to just 3 feet tall and wide, with a neat, compact habit that's ideal for containers and low hedges. Its attractive large, glossy, dark green, leathery foliage is disease resistant, keeping it lovely even when not in bloom. Create stunning vignettes by pairing purple and yellow with its bright red blooms, or plant it in mass for wave after wave of glorious summer color.

Plant in well-drained soil in full sun. Spring pruning is recommended. Old and dead wood should be removed and canes that cross need to be cut back. Gardeners in warmer climates should cut back the remaining canes by about one-third, while those in colder areas will probably want to prune a little more than that.
