This floribunda rose bush has it all - novel coloring, loads of blooms, and great disease resistance. When we saw Frido Kahlo roses in the test gardens, we loved how the clusters of striped flowers in warm hues of yellow, orange, and red stood out against the dark green, full foliage. Adding to its charm is its slight tea fragrance. A vigorous, upright perennial rose shrub, it has 5-6 flowers per cluster. Rosa cv. 'WEKcifrabaun' PPAF

Frida Kahlo is a larger-than-life rose bush! In addition to its large flowers, Frida Kahlo rose grows to a nice size of 30 to 36 inches in height and a spread of up to 36 inches. The similar height and spread of this rose give it a beautiful, mounded effect. Floribundas are known for their lovely shape, and Frida Kahlo is no exception.Do floribunda roses spread?
Floribunda roses grow taller and more expansive year after year until they reach their full height. However, they do not propagate underground like tubers or bulbs. So, while this rose has a nice, wide stance, it does not spread underground or invade, and you won't be able to dig up and divide it. However, with a bit of skill, roses can be propagated by cutting.How long do floribunda roses live?
Floribunda roses come back year after year, and a well-cared-for rose can live over 50 years. With good pruning, your roses will stay lively for many years to come.Do floribunda roses come back every year?
Floribunda roses are perennials and come back every year. With the right care, Floribunda roses can live for decades. Roses don't tolerate being transplanted well, so be sure to choose a site where you want to enjoy your Frida Kahlo rose for years to come.Can Frida Kahlo roses get too much sun?
Floribundas like Frida Kahlo do best with at least six hours of sunlight each day, and fewer sunny hours will result in fewer blooms. However, intense afternoon sun can damage the blooms, especially in very hot climates. For best results in hot climates, roses should be planted in a spot where they receive sun in the morning and a bit of shade at the height of the day, such as a foundation planting on the eastern side of a building or fence.How often do you water roses?
Roses are fairly thirsty plants, and need regular watering, especially as they become established. After planting, water your roses every two to three days. Once your roses have become established, usually after their first two months, water twice weekly through the growing season. Be sure to water the base of your plants, and water them in the morning. Too much moisture on the petals can lead to scorch or fungus.What is the best month to plant roses?
The best month to plant roses varies by location, so know your gardening zone and your final frost date. The last frost date falls in February for far-southern states. In Zones 6 or 7, including Kansas, Tennessee, and Nevada, the last frost date will occur in April. In Zone 5, including Ohio, most of Illinois, and much of the Midwest, late April is the right time to plant roses. For northern and New England gardeners, roses shouldn't be planted until late May.
