    Betty Boop's unusual coloration earned accolades for the hybridizer, Tom Carruth.

WHAT: Betty Boop is a semi-double floribunda rose that is ivory with red edges and a hint of yellow at its center. It has a long bloom season, from spring to fall and is disease resistant.
Its fragrance is best described as moderate, but its unusual coloration earned its hybridizer the American Rose Society's All American Rose Selection for 1999.
Betty Boop was hybridized Tom Carruth, who created more all-American roses than any other living hybridizer at the time of the award.
SUN OR SHADE: Requires full sun but can tolerate some shade.
SIZE: 4- to 5-feet tall and just as wide.
SEE IT: At the WSU Master Gardener Demonstration Garden at Jennings Memorial Park, 915 Armar Road, Marysville.
