Rosa 'Joseph's Coat' planted in the San Marcos Growers garden.
This repeat-flowering rose is considered a small climber or a tall floribunda. It has large multicolored yellow and red blend double flowers that open nearly flat to expose the stamens in the middle. . Joseph. s Coat. was introduced by Armstrong and Swim in 1964 and is a cross between Rosa 'Buccaneer (Yellow grandiflora -1952) and R. 'Circus' (Yellow blend floribunda -1956). It received the National Rose Society Trial Ground Certificate in 1963 and the Bagatelle Gold Medal in 1964. This is a fantastic rose, greeting spring with a riot of color and repeating well throughout the summer. Hardy to zones 4-10. One of our all time favorites which we grew from 1998 until 2016.
