Firestar – A floribunda rose with a kaleidoscope of colours including mandarin-orange, raspberry pink and scarlet with medium sized blooms continually.
This extraordinarily disease-resistant floribunda rose was awarded “Best Rose” in the Australian National Rose Trial Gardens in Adelaide in 2011 and will be seen in the coming years growing in road-side and park plantings throughout Australia because it is so readily adaptable to all climates and growing conditions – this is a very tough, free-flowering rose!
Firestar is a symbol used in some form by most volunteer Fire Brigades in Australia. The points were said to represent the Knightly virtues of tact, loyalty, dexterity, observation, sympathy, gallantry, perseverance and explicitness … all the virtues needed to be a firefighter.” Quoted from Knight’s Roses, 2013
When Firestar blooms first open, they are very warm orange on shortish stems but then the colours start to change, the petals frill and the bush literally smothers itself in a profusion of fascinating colours. Firestar does not stop flowering throughout the entire season and the mid-green foliage adds a delightful foil for the range of colours in the flowers. A very highly recommended rose for garden borders.
