'Europeana' Roses

Introduced - 1963

If you have a preference for red roses, especially true reds, then 'Europeana' is the right flower for you. 'Europeana' bears large flowers, each of which measure up to 3 inches (7.6 cm) across, they are full and have a clear crimson hue.

These flowers are simply the best roses that need to be cut and presented to someone special. The best part about these flowers is that they are borne in natural bouquets - which are large clusters decorated with bronze-green, glossy foliage.

In fact, 'Europeana' rose is possibly the closest to really ever-blooming that one may find in any rose. If you plant this floribunda variety en masse in any formal bed, which is often done, this shrub may prove to be overwhelming when it is in full bloom.

You can achieve a more stylish effect if you plant this rose in the form of fountain planting, as a container plant or an accent in a flower border. If your style happens to be making bold statements, you may plant 'Europeana' rose as an informal hedge.

However, this rose is vulnerable to fungal infections and, hence, you need to ensure that you plant this rose in an airy, sunny site and allow enough room around it for proper air circulation, which will help in blowing away the spores of the diseases.
