Mildly scented floribunda rose, repeat-flowering throughout the season with striped flowers. Glossy dark green foliage. Showy double flowers with about 25 petals, 10 cm across, burgundy red with white stripes and splashes, or white splashed with burgundy red.
Registered name: Rosa 'WEKplapep'. Bred by Tom Carruth in the USA from a cross between Rosa 'Playboy' and Rosa 'Peppermint Twist'.
Plant in full sun for best flower display. Any soil-type is suitable as long as it is well-draining and contains a generous amount of organic matter. Remove spent flowers to encourage subsequent flower production. Heat and humidity tolerant. Prune as required in winter to early spring. Susceptible to blackspot, but otherwise disease resistant.
Spectacular, free-flowering rose with a lovely mild scent, a very long flowering season, and good disease resistance. Looks great in groups or just by itself in beds or borders. Could also be grown as a loose, informal hedge. Excellent in pots. Flowers last well on water. Good for potpourris.
