Rosa 'Michelangelo'

Floribunda rose with mid green foliage, flowering in flushes throughout the season. Flowers are semi-double with about 25 petals. Coral orange with cream and orange stripes. Mild fragrance.

The illustration and description in this entry relate to the rose registered as Rosa 'MACtemaik', bred by Sam McGredy (New Zealand). Synonym: Rosa 'The Painter'. The yellow hybrid tea rose with the registration name Rosa 'MEItelov', bred by Meilland (France) is also sold as Rosa 'Michelangelo'.

Prefers a sunny position in any well-draining soil with a generous amount of organic matter. Fertilise in early spring and again in early summer. Dead-head during the flowering season and prune in winter.

A little bit different....this gorgeous rose with unusually striped and flecked flowers in vibrant oranges and cream. Great for flower display in beds or borders, as a single specimen or in groups. Suitable for picking.
