rose 'Korresia'


Rosa 'Korresia', commonly known as the floribunda rose, is a lush, ornamental plant admired for its striking flowers and pleasant fragrance. The appearance of the plant is characterized by its vibrant yellow blossoms that create a stunning contrast with the glossy, dark green foliage. The flowers are typically full and cup-shaped, featuring numerous petals that unfold in an elegant, spiraling pattern as they bloom. The leaves of the floribunda rose are typically pinnate with multiple leaflets that are oval-shaped with a pointed tip and serrated edges. The foliage offers a beautiful backdrop to the bright flowers, and in some cases, new growth may exhibit a reddish tinge before maturing to the deep green color. The stems of the plant are sturdy, often with thorns that vary in size and frequency. These thorns serve as a defense mechanism to protect the plant from herbivores. Throughout the blooming season, the floribunda rose can produce clusters of flowers that grow at the tips of the stems, creating a delightful, bountiful display. Overall, the Rosa 'Korresia' exudes an air of classic rose charm with its cheerful coloring, ample blooms, and rich, green leaves—all of which contribute to its popularity in gardens and landscaping.

  • water dropWater

    The Floribunda rose, commonly also referred to by its cultivar name 'Korresia', requires consistent moisture but does not do well sitting in waterlogged soil. Water the plant deeply once a week with about 1 to 2 gallons of water, depending on the weather conditions. In particularly hot or dry weather, increase watering to twice a week, ensuring the top two inches of soil are moist. Be careful to avoid overhead watering as wet leaves can promote disease; instead, water at the base of the plant. Reduce watering in the winter months when the plant is dormant.

  • sunLight

    Floribunda roses thrive in full sun, requiring at least six hours of direct sunlight daily. For optimal health and blooming, position them where they will receive morning sun, which dries dew from the leaves and helps prevent disease. These roses can tolerate some light afternoon shade, especially in hotter climates, but too much shade will reduce flowering and can make the plant more prone to pests and diseases.

  • thermometerTemperature

    Floribunda roses like 'Korresia' perform best in temperate conditions and should be planted in areas where the temperature ranges between 55 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit. These roses can survive temperatures down to about 20 degrees Fahrenheit but need protection from prolonged freezes. During extreme heat, above 90 degrees Fahrenheit, roses may require additional care such as increased watering and some partial shade during the hottest part of the day.

  • scissorsPruning

    Pruning Floribunda roses is important to maintain plant health, encourage blooming, and shape the plant. Prune in early spring as the buds begin to swell, removing dead or diseased wood, and any crossing or rubbing branches to promote good air circulation. Annual moderate pruning, cutting back about a third of the plant, will rejuvenate it and encourage vigorous growth and flowering. Deadheading, or the removal of spent flowers, should be done throughout the blooming season to encourage continuous flowering.

  • bambooSoil

    The best soil mix for growing Floribunda roses like the Rosa 'Korresia' should be rich in organic matter, well-draining, and slightly acidic to neutral with a pH of 6.0 to 7.0. A mixture of one-third compost, one-third garden soil, and one-third sharp sand or perlite would provide the nutrients and drainage needed.

  • plantRepotting

    Rosa 'Korresia', a Floribunda rose, typically doesn't need frequent repotting and is usually grown in the ground. If grown in containers, repot once every 2 to 3 years in early spring before new growth begins.

    Floribunda roses, including Rosa 'Korresia', prefer average humidity levels. It's not necessary to maintain a specific humidity level; natural outdoor conditions suit them well, as long as the soil moisture is appropriate.

  • circleLife cycle

    Rosa 'Korresia', commonly known as Floribunda Rose, begins its life as a dormant bare-root plant or a rooted cutting. It enters a growth phase upon planting, where it develops a root system and foliage. As it matures, it enters the flowering stage, producing clusters of fragrant, yellow blooms repeatedly throughout the growing season, which typically ranges from late spring to fall. After flowering, if the blooms are not deadheaded, it will produce hips (seed pods). As temperatures drop, the plant enters a period of dormancy during the winter months. With proper care, including pruning, feeding, and winter protection, the Floribunda Rose can survive for many years, completing this cycle annually.

      Spring-Early Summer

    • The Rosa 'Korresia', commonly known as the Floribunda Rose, is typically propagated through the method of softwood cuttings during the late spring to early summer. In this process, a healthy, non-flowering shoot is selected and cut at a length of 4 to 6 inches (approximately 10 to 15 centimeters). The lower leaves of the cutting are removed, and the cut end is dipped in rooting hormone to encourage root development. The cutting is then planted in a well-draining soil mix, and a high humidity environment is maintained until roots have established, which usually takes several weeks. This method is favored for its ease and the high success rate in producing a new plant that retains the characteristics of the parent.
