Playboy rose bush, one of the best multi colored roses. A beautiful orange rose with yellow and red shadings. If you like red and orange roses, or yellow roses with orange and red tips, and beautiful orange roses, 'Playboy' is the rose you should consider planting in your garden.
It's most popular, and best planted, in warmer climates where the bright yellow and orange flowers with red shades grow larger in size, and the intensity of the color is best attained.
The beautiful orange rose blooms are almost single, and open from clusters of pretty pointed buds to display
their dazzling multi colored blooms and attractive stamens.
The petals hold their orange yellow color surprisingly well, and shed their petals cleanly when the blossoms
are faded. The clustered flowers have only a light, sort of sweet scent, but they are produced in abundance
in late spring or early summer with quick repeat throughout the rest of the summer into fall.
The well foilaged slightly thorny canes have very shiny, dark green leaves that makes the bush look great even when it's not flowering.
Playboy rose has an upright bushy habit, growing a little below average height and width. This rose is not
for color cautious people. The showy rose is a stunning sight in flower beds and borders that feature other
hot-colored plants such as Cannas, Dahlias, yellow and orange Cosmos and Salvias.
Keep in mind that an orange rose in a white background looks smashing. How about growing some tall white Delphiniums as companion plants with these roses. I just adore orange and white planting combinations in a garden.
For a dramatic landscape accent, try it as a hedge in a mass planting, or use it to highlight and bring brightness to you foundation plantings.
'Playboy' is rarely bothered by disease. The rose was introduced by Cocker, UK, in 1976, and received the Portland Gold Medal in 1989. Zones 5-9, height 3-4 feet.
