Photo of RoseApricot Nectar Apricot Nectar produces perfect blossoms in pale apricot. They are sweetly fragrant. It's a rare color for floribundas, so a middling rose would have been popular for a while.

This is a very good rose and has been around since 1965; and there are still something like a dozen suppliers who offer it.

It will get fungal diseases and McKeon suggests annual pruning of the top 2/3 of canes to keep it at bay. But evidently disease is not a big problem since ARS members rate it 8.0
