That's what the judges decided.

My Moonlight Romantica impressed me greatly this year. It came as tiny liner this spring, bloomed continually, grew 3', with excellent BS resistance, very good fragrance, with a large, durable yellow bloom. I hope it survives the winter, unprotected. It looks like It wants to be a big bush.

Bliss Parfuma, from Kordes, won best floribunda.

Radler's Coral Knock Out won best overall shrub rose.

    That’s good to know Moses, Moonlight Romantica is one that I’m wanting to try.

    I'm eyeing Bliss Parfuma. Anyone have experience growing it? HMF has good reports on it

    Kate, I do have that one. 2019 was its first year for me. I have it in a pot. It seems very vigorous and disease resistant and produced quite a few blooms. I’ve been impressed so far, although I was a little disappointed with the blooms, I expect them to improve as the bush matures. It has a nice fragrance.
