Stunning prolific bloomer that will make you smile!Review by TheSpoiledGardner
Rating
I have several great roses in my collection but 'Rio Samba' never fails to stop me in my tracks, enticing me to get closer to take in the sweet scent of the blossoms and admire the daily transitioning colors of blooms. The blooms start off in a vibrant pale yellow which deepens in intensity by the day, revealing it's beautiful pink petal edges that eventually become a beautiful bold red. A sight to behold for sure! It always makes me smile and I'm sure it will do the same for you! Nice rounded and upright growth habit. It can be susceptible to black-spot, like most roses though. However, I only spray my roses "as needed" so for me, that means only about twice a month and I live in southwestern Florida. A lovely rose for any home or garden! (Posted on 7/15/2017)
Crazy BloomerReview by Great Performer

I have 23 different rose bushes and Rio Samba is amazing. It's huge and always demands attention when in bloom. The more sunshine there is, the more vivid the blooms. Very thorny, medium fragrance. It grows near Mr. Lincoln, Fame, and Scentimental which is a beautiful contrast. (Posted on 4/23/2017)

Brightens any gardenReview by Allison

You can almost hear the salsa music! Rio Samba changes color as it matures and grows on a hardy full bush of dark green. The bright yellow, orange, red, peach and pink colors stand out in contrast. Beautiful to watch day by day. (Posted on 3/31/2015)
Carnival on a bushReview by Grammy

Black spot resistant and dependable. The bush is always full of flowers that change colors as they mature. It reminds me of being in the Islands for Carnival. Handles the cold winters well. Love this bush! (Posted on 9/18/2013)
