Frida Kahlo™

Frida Kahlo is a floribunda rose named in honor of the famous Mexican artist known for using bold colors in her paintings of flowers.  When asked, she said that she painted flowers so that they would never die.  The rose was introduced by Weeks Roses in 2018.

The Frida Kahlo rose has deep glossy green foliage with 3 – 4 inch blooms in small clusters on medium length stems.  The blooms have a petal count of 25 – 40, are ovoid shaped and red striped gold with a red blush.  It is very disease resistant.  It grows from 30 to 36 inches tall.

Peninsula Park Rose Garden has it on display in bed number 22.
