Your garden deserves this rose. Everything about it is superior, from its resistance to blackspot, rust, and powdery mildew to its intoxicating spicy-sweet fragrance. Its habit is upright (unusual for a floribunda!) and its blooms huge and beautifully colored. No wonder it's won a bouquet of international awards, including the coveted All-America Rose Selection in 2004!

None of the awards, disease resistance, or interesting shape compares with the simple beauty of the flowers! These fully double blooms are packed with up to 30 petals held in perfectly symmetrical, whorled rows like a fine hybrid tea. Fully open, the flower is easily 4 inches across. And the apricot and golden tones mature to a rich cream over the long life of the flowers, so that a fully blooming 'Honey Perfume' combines all shades from deep peach to nearly white!

The bloomtime of this rose is said to be all summer (it repeats freely), but we have noticed that in all but the most northerly climates it will begin flowering before spring is out and continue into autumn as long as the mild weather holds. It is a floribunda, meaning that the flowers arise in big clusters instead of one per stem. With a single snip, you have created a bouquet that will last for more than a week, so fragrant that it perfumes the entire room. Why can't all roses be like 'Honey Perfume'?

This shrub reaches about 3, sometimes 4, feet high and up to 3 feet wide. That's a good size for the sunny border, and 'Honey Perfume' adores sun, growing and blooming best in full light. It doesn't need to be "spaced" apart from other plants the way that most older roses do, however, because it is free from most of the foliar diseases caused by overcrowding and moisture. Blackspot, the scourge of roses, is absent here, as are powdery mildew (a big problem for roses in very humid or rainy climates) and rust. In other words, you can pop 'Honey Perfume' right into a mixed planting without worrying about all the usual special treatment roses need!

'Honey Perfume' was introduced in 2004, and immediately won an All American Rose Selection. It was Jackson & Perkins' Floribunda of the Year® for 2004 and won the Gold Medal at the rose competition in Barcelona. Gardeners across the U.S. and Europe have sung its praises, and for good reason. Few floribundas offer lower maintenance, better and more frequent repeat blooms, easy-care upright habits, and such color as this beauty!

A Tradition of Distinction

Wayside Difference Since its founding in 1920, Wayside Gardens has brought the rarest and highest-quality plants to the garden market. Wayside was founded in 1920 by two acclaimed growers who came together to pursue their shared vision of marketing all high-end plants for the serious garden enthusiast. Originally located in Mentor, Ohio, Wayside Gardens swiftly grew a reputation for the highest-quality plants and the most sophisticated clientele. In 1975, Wayside was purchased by the Park Seed Company, and moved to Hodges, SC.  The company has flourished since then, growing to become an undisputed leader in rare and unique plant growing.

Unparalleled Selection

Wayside's horticulturists travel the world in search of new and unusual plant cultivars and proudly offer the garden industry’s most sophisticated selection of high quality and rare perennial plants, bulbs, trees, shrubs, roses, vines, and indoor plants. Beginning with ties to the Dutch family bulb business in Holland, our horticulturists have developed close relationships with perennial and bulb growers throughout the United States and Europe, providing access to many rare and unique garden treasures. Throughout our history we have had the pleasure of introducing numerous exotic foreign and domestic plant cultivars to the American garden market.
