Russet Floribunda.
Registration name: Silver Cloud
Exhibition name: Silver Cloud
Bred by Ralph S. Moore (United States, 1990).
Coffee, cream blending.  None to mild fragrance.  Medium to large, double (17-25 petals), cluster-flowered, in small clusters, high-centered to flat bloom form.  Prolific, blooms in flushes throughout the season.  
Medium, rounded, upright, well-branched.  
Height of 42" to 4' (105 to 120 cm).  Width of 3' to 4' (90 to 120 cm).
USDA zone 6b and warmer.  Can be used for beds and borders, container rose, cut flower or garden.  Vigorous.  Remove spent blooms to encourage re-bloom.  Spring Pruning: Remove old canes and dead or diseased wood and cut back canes that cross. In warmer climates, cut back the remaining canes by about one-third. In colder areas, you'll probably find you'll have to prune a little more than that.  Can be pruned to maintain a shorter habit.
