Absolutely Fabulous is a brilliant butter yellow floribunda with the blooms having an old fashioned rose appearance. Delightfully fragrant too with a scent described as ‘strong liquorice candy and spice’. Excellent in the garden, the compact bush habit makes this an idea rose for mass planting or on its own with other roses. It also makes a great standard to bring the colour and fragrance closer to eye level. Exceptionally healthy, like some many of the newer roses released today.
Bred by Tom Carruth in the US who described it as ‘one of the finest roses of my career in rose breeding’, Absolutely Fabulous has won awards around the world including the Gold Star of the South Pacific here in New Zealand last year. It also features on the cover of the 2012 Rose Review -your guide to the new roses being sold in New Zealand.
