Potted Floribunda Roses

Floribunda roses are bush roses and thus ideal for borders and large patio pots, and can be planted straight away

For more information on the different types of roses we offer and therefore what may be most suitable for your garden, see our handy guide.

How will my potted rose arrive?

Our roses are cut back for the Winter to promote root growth, thus will arrive with short but healthy stems between October and March. Roses in April and May would be expected to have new growth and leaves, and then between May and September buds and blooms. *Please note: These are estimates and can vary due to weather conditions and exact variety of rose.

Your rose will be in a large 5.5L container, which is recyclable and thus can be disposed of accordingly in your home recycling bin.

We take care to be as sustainable as possible here at English Roses, and so avoid single use plastics at all costs. Our packaging is therefore fully recyclable, even down to the strapping on our cardboard boxes. Our gift wrapping also contains natural materials, many of which can be repurposed and reused.

A fantastic 80th birthday rose gift, from a small independent UK business.

    I’ve orderd this rose for a friend’s birthday! And can’t believe how beautiful it is. The rose came packed amazingly it was double the size I expected! Hight and width was surprisingly large with over 30 buds some slightly open . I’m so happy as the price comparison to a garden centre is definitely better value for money orderd from English roses. Only orderd online as I wanted a special 80th rose but I’m never buying a rose from a garden centre again! The plant its self is over 2ft high and over a 1ft wide I’m so happy and definitely will be ordering again!!!!! Orderd in July so was the best time to order but still presently surprised how amazing the plant was . I would highly recommend this company and this stunning rose .
