Carefree Celebration breaks new ground for vigorous landscape roses. Most, including the Meidiland series and most of the Knock Out series by Bill Radler, have been red, white or pink. Some yellows appear, also. The big dealwith this rose is that Carefree Celebration is a lovely soft orange or salmon color that is destined to go well with just about every rose color in the garden from lavender, purple and pink, to yellow, orange, and red. It was expected to have the same vigor, shrubby development, and resistance to disease and pests that Radler's Knock Out roses do; but some might dispute that it is quite that good. Still, it should make for a very good and carefree garden rose in many parts of the NE US.
