Ruby Tuesday - Betty Boop Rose

Betty Boop is a Florabunda rose that blooms quickly and continuously.  It is named for a 1930s cartoon character.

The bush has dark, glossy, and healthy leaves and the grows in a rounded natural shape.

It flowers with profusion and sets new blooms so quickly that  'Betty Boop' is never without blooms.

We enjoyed this specimen when we visited Sue's brother Alan in Virginia earlier this month. 
Betty Boop was an animated cartoon character 
introduced by Max Fleischer from 1930 to 1939. 
She sang, "Boop-oop-A-Doop ".

The name is just right for the flower. I like the red shade on the roses reminds me of Betty Boop lipstick hehe!

Bloom on, Betty Boop!


A splash of red or a dash of blue—
Which is the color that’s just for you?

A hint of blue or a tint of red—
Which of these colors goes to your head?

Of all the colors under the sun,
Red is simply my favorite one!
