Playboy

I love big, overblown roses, but I also love the simple few-petaled roses and 'Playboy' floribunda is one of the latter. It has that orange-y pink-y coloring that I am crazy about and each bloom has five outer petals and four inner petals surrounding a yellow center. Why is it called Playboy? My guess is that it is his rather flirty nature!

peradoWhat a beautiful rose! It reminds me of Betty Boop for some reason. I love roses that show off like that! Totally lovely!

It's a beautiful rose, Sheila, but you might get a lot of visitors to your blog who expect a different type of a post!
