Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by parklnursery Tropicana Rose
When I purchased this famous rose at the Home Depot in March it was vigorous, and starting to form leaf buds. You can imagine my amazement when I noticed this same rose in full bloom at another store a few miles away in early May. The price tag was more than five times higher than at Home Depot. Here is my "scientific" review of 'Tropicana'. Flowers: buds deep orange-red, slow to expand, expanded corolla medium to large, form excellent; red-orange color carries a good distance in landscape; fragrance intense rose. Leaves: deep green. Stems: stout, erect. No real problems with 'Tropicana', just look for harmful insects every other day or so.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sandee The best rose for fragrance and color.
These roses were delivered in perfect condition. They were planted and now have buds and I can't wait for the buds to open. The fragrance of the Tropicana rose is remarkably wonderful and the color is a coral color; absolutely beautiful!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by southerngardener Awesome Color!
I absolutely love the color of this rose! It is a gorgeous salmon-coral color. The blooms are large, lightly fragrant, and, did I mention the color? It is certainly not one you see everyday. The only reason I did not give it 5-stars is because mine seems to be a bit stingy with the number of blooms, but it could be because I've only had it for 2 years. Want something other than the standard red or pink? Then get this one! By the way, I live in NC, zone 7.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by t24782000 Longest lasting & sweetest smelling
I happened upon this rose almost 20 years ago and it is my all time favorite. It lasts at least a week in a vase if cut at the bud stage; color stays true year after year; smells wonderful.

Roses good & green but no buds when arrived. Stalks were green and roses were packed well. Potted roses before planting just yesterday. Roses still doing well. Customer service and shipping was excellent.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tsudi Love the Rose; can't wait for it to bloom.
I planted the rose plant a couple of weeks ago. Already it's sprouting leaves and growing like crazy. It's such a joy to watch it grow. I would have given it a 5 star rating, but it's too early to say how well overall the plant will do. So far, I'm very pleased with it and can't wait for it to bloom.
