Distant Drums

Wow…certainly THE MOST unusually colored rose from the late Dr. Griffith Buck…and it’s fragrant, too. Very hardy, this rose survives winter under Iowa test conditions…so you can count on it to be present every spring with a show of flowers. Vigorous and beautifully balanced with lots of clusters…more like a Floribunda.
