Floribunda is a modern group of garden roses. Think of it as a double-crossed rose. The idea behind this multi-layered breeding was to create roses which bloom with polyantha profusion but have the floral beauty and color range of a hybrid tea. The 'Betty Boop'  is probably the most well known of this classification.
Lineage 1: Rosa chinensis x Rosa multiflora = polyantha rose
Lineage 2: polyantha x hybrid tea = floribunda rose
