Roses introduced after 1867 (some authors say 1920) are considered Modern Roses.
Floribunda roses are characterized by a abundant flower production in large clusters. They are generally hardier, more free flowering and displaying better disease resistance than the Hybrid Teas.
Floribundas were first developed by the firm of Poulsen in Denmark, with the idea to produce hardy roses suitable for the Scandinavian climate.
They were first known as Hybrid Polyanthas, until they were renamed Floribundas in 1950.
Some of the best Floribundas:
Europeana (de Ruiter, 1963)
English Miss (Cant, 1977)
Iceberg (Schneewittchen, Fee des Neiges) (Kordes, 1958)
Korresia (Fresia, Friesia, Sunsprite) (Kordes, 1977) , one of the best yellow Floribundas
Lavender Pinocchio (Boerner, 1948), the best among the lavender and mauve Floribundas
Victoriana (LeGrice, 1977), a Floribunda of most unusual coloring
Grandiflora & Climbing Grandiflora
