Sun Sprinkles Miniature Rose

Description

Award-winning form, color, and garden performance

One of the rare few Miniature Roses to win AARS honors 2001.

AARS Award 2001

Miniature roses that have won an All-America Rose Selections are scarce, yet Sun Sprinkles Miniature Rose was given this honor the year it was introduced. This lightly fragrant, exquisitely formed miniature rose sets color-drenched yellow blooms in waves all summer long on petite shrubs that are hardy through Zone 6 in the North and quite prepared to withstand the heat of summer.

These blooms, borne on stems 8 to 10 inches long, arise from classic pointed ovoid buds and spiral open with a high center and tightly packed whorls of fragrant yellow petals. Expect up to 35 petals on each bloom, which reach about 2 inches wide when fully extended.

Sun Sprinkles Miniature Rose is compact enough for a container but is showy enough to make quite an impact in the garden as well. The long-stemmed blooms are suitable for cutting, and the habit of this shrub is well-branched and healthy, with glossy dark green foliage that keeps Sun Sprinkles Miniature Rose looking good right through fall. Reaching about 2 feet high and wide, Sun Sprinkles Miniature Rose packs a lot of color and texture into a small frame.

And this mini comes by its good looks and garden strength honestly. Sun Sprinkles Miniature Rose seed parent is Yellow Jacket and one of its pollen parents is Ferris Wheel, both renowned for their exquisite color and form. Sun Sprinkles Miniature Rose was bred in 1992 but not released until 2001, when Sun Sprinkles Miniature Rose immediately won an AARS award.
