Comments Bred from two of Warriner's best floribunda roses, Bill Warriner's flowers are a lovely shell pink, with a perfect, swirling high centered form. Sometimes they display some apricot or gold tones deep within the petals. Under perfect conditions, the well-branched plant can just about cover itself with blossoms - reminiscent of Sexy Rexy. The great commercial problem for Bill Warriner, perhaps, was that it arrived just as the rose world was turning their attention to roses that smell good. Where one is willing to forgo fragrance, Bill Warriner might be a good rose.
