Abstract

No flower has made such a spectacular impact advance during recent years as the cluster type of rose now classified as Floribunda. Although the earliest kinds were introduced to commerce by the Danish hybridist, S. Poulsen, as Hybrid-polyantha roses as long as 30 years ago, it was not until a few years before World War II that they received much recognition. Then the sterling qualities of roses such as Karen Poulsen and Orange Triumph, for creating massed displays of colour, seemed to be recognised almost overnight and resulted in the planting of many thousands of bushes.
