Beautifully full flowers, stunning color, and fruity to taste – that’s right, we said taste! The Flavorette™ Honey-Apricot Rose is an edible rose. This 3-4 foot tall and wide rose bush has been bred to stun in the garden as well as on your plate. The Flavorette™ Honey-Apricot Rose (Rosa 'Boznatafra') has silky smooth apricot petals whorled tightly into a compact rosette, perched atop shiny green leaves. Add the petals to your favorite salad for a pop of color and flavor, or grow it as a standard rose bush, attracting pollinators and livening up your garden. Either way, someone is getting a snack!

The fragrant Flavorette™ Honey-Apricot Rose is a smallish mounding rose bush, allowing it to be grown in gardens of any size. This adaptable rose is disease resistant and reblooming, creating a show for weeks in the summer. The Flavorette™ Honey-Apricot Rose can be grown as a standalone stunner or planted together to create a beautiful, and edible, flowering hedge. As with most rose bushes, the Flavorette™ Honey-Apricot Rose is deciduous and will lose its leaves in the winter. 

Flavorette™ Honey-Apricot Rose Care

The Flavorette™ Honey-Apricot Rose will grow best in moist, well-draining, slightly acidic soil, planted in full sun. To plant, dig a hole that is at least twice as wide and of the same depth as the root ball. In hotter, drier climates, mulch the root zone with a 2-3 inch layer of compost to help the soil retain water. In the spring, add a rose-specific, slow-release fertilizer, and follow up in a few weeks after the first bloom with a liquid rose fertilizer to encourage additional blooms. 

The Flavorette™ Honey-Apricot Rose will benefit from regular maintenance and pruning. It is important to remove any dead or damaged branches to improve air flow. In the late winter or early spring, cut back the branches to maintain the bush’s shape and size, removing up to one-third of the plant’s mass. Old blooms can also be removed once they begin to fade to encourage continuous flowering.

Flavorette™ Honey-Apricot Rose Spacing

Plant the Flavorette™ Honey-Apricot Rose 3-4 feet away from other plants to allow it room to grow. When creating a hedge or mass planting, bushes can be planted slightly closer together, though it is important to ensure that there is still air flow in and around the plants to prevent the spread of disease.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
