I know all my rose friends have been waiting for me to put a rose on my blog. Well, it's finally here! In SoCal one of my favorite roses for the landscape is a Floribunda called Trumpeter! It has disease resistant glossy foliage and is almost self cleaning(easy to deadhead). The red orange color is so bright that you could see it from a few houses away. It is compact, only grows to about 3 feet and is almost always in bloom from April to Nov. Enjoy.
