Low-growing, compact, bushy, disease-resistant and delightful fruity scent

All-American Rose Selections (AARS) 1983

Bill Warriner, our fabulous rose breeder for so many years here at Jackson & Perkins, crossed Sunsprite, a cold-hardy, disease-resistant Kordes rose, and an unnamed seedling and ended up with this award-winning rose. Sun Flare Floribunda Rose is fragrant, heavy blooming, and vigorous, even in adversity, and Sun Flare Floribunda Rose has stood the test of time magnificently.

Throughout the season and well into fall, this classic floribunda regales with big, fruit-scented clusters of high-centered lemon yellow double blooms, repeating dependably, and maintains its lush glossy dark green foliage.

This 3 foot high and 3 foot wide, low-growing, spreading shrub is so compact you can squeeze Sun Flare Floribunda Rose into small-space accent plantings or your best containers, but Sun Flare Floribunda Rose will still provide armloads of blooms for the vase while leaving plenty on the shrub.

Sun Flare

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I have had Sun Flare yellow rose for over 20 years. It grows taller than the description states and to my joy. A happy accident: I planted it near a baby Blue spruce tree. as the tree grew, the rose grew thru it, and continued to grow thru the spruce for many years. It is aprox. 6 ft tall, and blooms it head off thru the tree branches. I would be happy to send a pictures but do not see a upload here. I highly recommend this rose.

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

This rose is does well in 9b! We have had one of the hottest summers in 2016...she did wonderful leaves didn't burn or defoliate. I have had for less than a year and she is a bloom machine! She bloomed sporadically throughout the summer and now that it is "cooler" here October she is really picking up speed in growth and blooms! I have kept her in a pot, the easier to control/deep water in the desert.

A fantastic performer!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

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.

Choosing Your Roses

Bare root roses are the most common form of roses for spring and early season planting, and come in two types: grafted and own root.

Grafted Bare root Roses
Own root Bare root Roses

Grafted roses, sometimes referred to as budded bare root roses, have roots that belong to a different variety of rose than the shoots. While the shoots will grow into the variety of rose you've selected, the root variety has been specially grown and developed for hardiness, improved resistance to common diseases, and improved resistance to certain weather conditions. The roots on any grafted rose you receive are usually already two years old, so they'll establish in your garden more quickly when planted.

Own root roses are grown from rose shoot cuttings and develop their own root system. Unlike grafted roses, both their roots and shoots come from the same variety of plant.

All Jackson & Perkins bare root roses are maintained in a suspended state of growth in our state-of-the-art wet cooler, so they'll be delivered to you with no foliage or blooms. The wet cooler has a uniform storage temperature set just above freezing and uses a fog system to provide consistent humidity of 100%, ensuring the roses remain fully hydrated and don't exit dormancy before leaving our facility. While you might see some variance in size, even within the same variety of bare root rose, all our roses meet the same rigorous standards of quality.

So, not sure which type of bare root rose you should choose? Don't worry, we've got that covered. We've researched which varieties of bare root roses grow better as grafted or own root, and both types can be planted in the early spring months, so just choose the variety of rose you're most interested in and get planting.

Though you might be surprised or intimidated when you receive a box of bare root roses filled with roots and shoots, rest assured, with the proper care, these little bundles will grow into stunning roses.

Container Roses

Container Roses

Container roses are typically available in 2-quart sizes or larger and come with established foliage that may or may not have blooms. While bare root roses should generally be planted in early spring, container roses allow you quite a bit more flexibility in planting time, from spring all the way through fall in many zones. Fall can be a good season to plant container roses because it allows them enough time to establish themselves before cold or freezing temperatures arrive.
