Francesca, because of its yellow color, is one of Joseph Pembertons showiest Hybrid Musk roses. It produces large sprays of semidouble flowers on dark-stemmed, glossy-foliaged branches. It is small enough to grow in a whiskey barrel or large pot while it gracefully cascades. Francesca gets her buff apricot color from ‘Sunburst’ and its spreading habit from ‘Danae’. Flower production is excellent in spring, afterwards blooming continuously from summer to fall. It remains evergreen in winter.
