I have been looking, looking and looking, so some suggestions would appreciated.
Ok, I'm looking for a light apricot rose, it can be infused with some white. I would like the foliage to be glossy to semi gloss and grow to around 1m-1.2m. Thanks peoples

'French Lace' is a Floribunda. Although, it can vary a little in colour depending on the weather (tending towards pinkish sometimes or pale apricot).
It's one of my best performers. Smile

I and many other exhibitors have found French Lace not as vigoras as we would like. I had four originally but lost three over the years. I am now growing the rose that is left in a big pot and it is getting the "royal treatment" and it is showing promise.

Paul, most places should have Tamora. I saw it at melvilles. It's an oldie so no longer PBR protected. I bet even Bunnies could order it in for you from Jarrahdale.
