Day Breaker Rose

This is one of those roses that when it’s good, it’s gorgeous!  But when it’s bad, it’s pretty bad.  It has a small problem with black spot in my garden.  If I can stay ahead of it, it’s better, but it will still get it no matter it seems.  But I think this rose, unlike some of the others, may be worth the extra effort.  In its defense, it does have to deal with a lot of shade where it is currently at.  That may make a difference.

The Day Breaker rose is a floribunda rose and AARS Winner for 2004.  This is a fairly new rose that was hybridized in the UK in 2004 and introduced to the US in 2004.  The large buds are offset by dark green glossy foliage and are good for cutting. The blending colors of white, apricot, and peach will almost glow in the cooler fall weather.  It also seems to change color in different lighting.

Day Breaker roses are an upright, bushy floribunda with bright, multi-shade blooms. The blooms are nestled among dark, glossy green foliage on a plant that reaches a medium height. Day Breaker has a wonderful moderate tea fragrance and continuous bloom.
