  Rosa 'Nearly Wild' - Pink Floribunda (1941)
 
Nearly Wild
Rosa 'Nearly Wild' planted in the San Marcos Growers garden.
 
This modern cluster-flowering Floribunda Rose was introduced by Dr. Walter D. Brownell in 1941 by crossing the large flowered wichuraiana climber, 'Dr. W. Van Fleet' (1910) with 'Leuchtstern' a climbing Polyantha (1899). 'Nearly Wild' has reemerged from an obscurity that found the few remaining plants only in old rose gardens. Looking like a compact wild rose that grows to 2 feet and as wide wide with dull dark green foliage with red highlights and small pointed buds that open to mildly fragrant rose-pink single flowers. Unlike a wild rose this plant is disease resistant and repeats flowering from spring into fall. A very nice rose for a natural look or along a border or entry garden. Hardy to zones 4-10. This listing for information only - we no longer grow this plant.
