Meet Whoopi, Dolly and Della -- and other "stars" of the rose garden.

The legendary comedian gave his approval for this unique floribunda. According to hybridizer Tom Carruth, the rose was named at the time of Burns' 100th birthday. 'George Burns' carries with it a strong citrus fragrance. The ruffled, double flowers are streaked with yellow, cream and red and complemented by glossy, deep green foliage. In cooler temperatures, the yellow color becomes more pronounced. Perhaps in a tribute to the years when he and his wife performed on television together, the floribunda 'Gracie Allen,' whose bloom has a pink blend with darker center, was sold for several years as a companion plant with 'George Burns.' USDA Zones 3 to 10.
