Sun Flare Floribunda Rose
This heat- and cold-tolerant rose has a mild licorice scent and makes a great complement to lavender roses or perennials.
This Gorgeous Floribunda was Given All-American Rose Selections Honors in 1983.
'Sun Flare' embodies all the best qualities of floribunda roses. It offers loads of 3- to 4-inch sunny lemon-yellow blooms continuously from early summer to late summer that open from attractive pointed, ovoid buds. The low-growing, compact, bushy, disease-resistant plant has a spreading habit, reaching a mature size of about 2 to 4 feet high and 3 feet wide.
This heat- and cold-tolerant rose delights with a mild licorice scent and makes a great complement to lavender roses or perennials. Its garden performance and manageable size make it ideal for everything from beds and borders to low hedges and patio containers. And naturally, you will want one in your cut garden, so you can snip a few ready-made bouquets to brighten your home or office! It's no wonder 'Sun Flare' won All-American Rose Selections honors in 1983!
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.

A fantastic performer!
This plant was bought by the previous homeowner at least 10 years ago. It has bloomed almost all year around in our mild coastal climate. Disease-free, even in wet winters when all the other roses have mildew. White fly never bother it either. This is the dream garden rose! Our only minor quibble is that the scent is very faint.
By Far The Best Yellow Rose
Being a native Texan, I love yellow roses. This rose is so hardy that I have planted them all around the pool. The color of the blooms are ever changing as they age and striking against the blue pool and green yard. The blooms last a very long time and it doesn't seem to require any spraying, mulching, vigorous pruning, or more than a weekly watering. It's fragrance is intoxicating and each plant covers itself with blooms. Great rose for first timers!
I first bought this rose 20 years ago then moved and lost it. It forms a bush covered in spectacular bright yellow rose. Little to no care--blooms all summer. Great, fantastic wonderful! I am ordering two.

What to ExpectContainer 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.
