Easy Going is a sport of Livin’ Easy and has the same characteristics as its parent except for the color which is golden peachy yellow with a hint of pink instead of orange and yellow. This floribunda has a rating of 8.0 at 2018 American Rose Society Handbook for Selecting Roses. Bloom size is 3 to 4 inches across. Easy Going blooms profusely and the blooms come in clusters of 3 to 7 blooms and have 26-30 thick, wavy petals complemented by healthy dark green, shiny foliage. Easy going has a sweet, honey scent. Usually its habit is short, about two feet tall and rounded. However, it can reach almost four feet tall.
Easy Going was one of the healthiest roses in my old garden. Easy Going was amazing that it got so healthy in its location where previous roses planted in the same spot always died. It has won an All-American Rose Selections Award in 1996 and Royal National Rose Society Gold Medal in 1990. If possible, plant Easy Going in group of 3 or 5 for great impact. Blue flower plants are good companion plants.
Tip #40 – Drink eight glasses of water every day to flush out the toxins in your body.
Until Next time. Stop and Smell the Roses.
