Rosa 'White Licorice'

Common Name(s):

Phonetic Spelling
RO-zuh
Description

'White Licorice' is a Floribunda cultivar shrub in the Rosaceae (rose) family that was bred in the US by Christian Bedard in 2009 and introduced as 'White Licorice' in 2011 by Weeks Wholesale Rose Grower.

Its common name comes from the strong lemony, licorice scent.  

Blooming in clusters the solitary, double flowers average 4" in diameter and will bloom throughout the season.  Deadheading, along with at least 6 hours of sunlight daily will encourage new flowers to form.  Morning sun will help dry the leaves of dew, which will in turn allow the foliage to be at its healthiest.  

Pruning to remove dead or dying branches should be accomplished in late winter to early spring.  Also prune to maintain a shapely specimen.  

Filling out right to the ground eliminates the need for plantings in front.  

Insects, Diseases, and Other Plant Problems:  No serious issues.
