Photo of Rose Caribbean Who can remain unaffected by the pleasing, warm, and interesting flower of Caribbean. Its petals range from yellow to coral, with flushes of peach, apricot, and strawberry cream. It must be among the more delectable of rose blossoms.

When blossoms are this interesting, we are used to them coming on roses with notable health problems. Caribbean's grandparent New Dawn has evidently passed along some of its resistance to disease and some of its vigor. It won an AARS award in 1994, and is rated 7.5 by ARS members.

As a grandiflora, it will not produce flowers as large as those of most hybrid teas, but it will probably produce many more in a season.
