Sun Flare Yellow Floribunda Rose
This heat- and cold-tolerant rose has a mild licorice scent and makes a great complement to lavender roses or perennials.
Spring pruning is recommended. Old and dead wood should be removed and canes that cross need to be cut back. Gardeners in warmer climates should cut back the remaining canes by about one-third, while those in colder areas will probably want to prune a little more than that. This rose will require winter protection if the wind chill factor drops below 20 F/ - 7 C. 'Sun Flare' makes a lovely addition to both gardens and containers, but container plantings will need winter protection. Zones 5-10. Var: 'JACjem' (PP#5,001). Own-root rose.

What to Expect
Container roses should typically be planted in late spring and fall. They’re easy to plant (all you need is a trowel), and they provide instant gratification, as they aren’t dormant and will have buds within a few short weeks, if they don’t when they arrive. They’re also perfect for transplanting into containers and make an attractive gift.
Container roses are usually nicely leafed out, and may even have flowers on them, which is a great way for you to know when you purchase them what they’re going to look and smell like.
