Behold the Floribunda Rose - Hot Cocoa

There is such a lure to roses. It's like they have this urgent banner over them, "Come here at once." And, of course, we don't have any resistance and immediately walk over to them. This "Hot Cocoa" is one such rose. It's a keeper. The color is a red-brown, and every stalk has a huge bouquet on it thanks to it's floribunda heritage. It's quite hardy... another huge bonus.

Hot Cocoa has an old rose fragrance and it's foliage is green and glossy. Yes, it's attributes are amazing. They reach a height of 3- 6 feet all laden with rich color and fragrance.

Hi CandyLei- the roses are just beautiful! My wife and I used to have a small garden in the city and she was able to grow beautiful roses. We have since moved to the country and they are being very finicky for her. But she'll keep trying. Love your blog and Sir Salty is adorable. Will visit often. Take care and enjoy your holiday weekend!!
