Nursery Management's Webinar Series
Have you tried one of the most disease resistant, heat tolerant roses on the market?
Sunrosa roses from Suntory Flowers offer a compact, low-maintenance alternative in five gorgeous colors.
Sunrosa has been capturing attention in leading landscape trial evaluations the past few summers. In addition to being hardy to Zone 5 in the North, Sunrosa varieties sizzle in the South year round by offering a compact growth habit, extended flowering period and superb disease resistance.
When the University of Georgia (UGA) conducted an extensive rose trial over the summer of 2012, both Sunrosa Red and Sunrosa Yellow received perfect scores for foliage quality the entire five months, May through October. Sunrosa Red earned UGA’s prestigious Classic City Award for its performance in 2012 and then was named a Plant of Distinction in 2013.
Right after the rose trials, UGA’s Dr. Allan Armitage said, “I was taken with Sunrosa’s retail friendly size and wanted to evaluate leaf health and flower power in the very challenging heat and humidity of Athens, Georgia. Sunrosa Red was glorious, and even though considerably smaller than all the other roses we were grading, plants more than held their own.”
Compact Sunrosa roses are ideal for small to medium landscape spaces and patio containers, as well as planted in masses to create borders or fill slopes and banks. Plants have an upright, bushy habit but only reach a height of 15-30 inches with a spread of 12-18 inches.
Labor-saving Sunrosa roses require less pruning and are easy to care for. Plants are covered with blooms that are 1.5-2 inches in diameter. Colors include Red, Yellow, Soft Pink, Fragrant Pink and Orange Delight.
