Tuscan Sun Floribunda Rose

Bareroot Grafted
Item #31854


Jackson & Perkins Floribunda of the Year 2005 | Golden Rose of Rose Hills 2004

Every petal is suffused with a bronzed apricot tan on this stunning Jackson & Perkins introduction. Exquisitely symmetrical, opening from pointed, ovoid buds, these fully double flowers exude a light spicy aroma as they gradually unfurl in the summer sun, revealing tones of orange and peach that evoke long lazy August afternoons. Treat yourself to the beauty and fragrance of this floribunda this season.

Fully 4 inches wide and boasting 25 petals, these blooms arise in large clusters all over the shrub. The flowering occurs in waves, beginning with the first breath of warm summer weather and continuing, in moderate and warm climates, into fall. This is a bloom to be cut for the vase and appreciated up close, but also a fine garden performer, its unusual color standing out nicely in the perennial or shrub border, its clove-like scent perfuming the warm summer air.

Best of all, this shrub is quite disease resistant, staving off two of the worst rose perils: rust and powdery mildew. This makes it ideal for climates subject to late-afternoon summer rainstorms, for instance, as well as perpetually humid or damp areas. Plant it fearlessly in the crowded garden without worrying that it needs extra space for air circulation. Tuscan Sun can take it.

And it comes by this disease resistance honestly. Its seed parent is Sam McGredy's Singin' in the Rain, bred especially for tolerance of damp and moisture; its pollen parent is a cross of two Bill Warriner classics: Pink Pollyanna (one of our all-time favorites here at Jackson & Perkins) and Impatient, a perpetual-flowering variety that might be responsible for Tuscan Sun's heavy and frequent intervals of bloom.

Tuscan Sun reaches up to 4 feet tall and spreads up to 3 feet wide, with excellent branching. Use it in large containers as well as the garden. We predict that you will become as enamored of these large, perfectly formed apricot-orange blooms as we are.

A Wonderful Rose

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I have had such good luck with Jackson & Perkins roses over the last 40 years that I will not buy any others. Love them. This Tuscan Sun is the prettiest rose. My other Tuscans are 12 years old.

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.

Jackson & Perkins World's Finest Roses

The Jackson & Perkins Difference

Jackson & Perkins is one of the most recognized names in the gardening industry. In fact, for decades rose lovers have considered Jackson & Perkins synonymous with great roses. How has Jackson & Perkins earned this reputation? Simple, for over 100 years we have brought our customers the world's finest selection of roses.

From seed to market a new garden rose can take 8 to 10 years to develop. Every year, thousands of seedlings are grown but only a handful are selected to move into the trial phase. During this time, potential new roses are grown and evaluated in different climatic regions of the country. Our rosarians are looking for rose bushes that have stronger disease resistance, vigorous growth habits, and clean healthy foliage. When it comes to blooms, they are looking for improved flower form, unique colors, and strong fragrance.

Today Jackson & Perkins offers over 200 varieties of roses that includes a broad selection of exclusive roses, historical favorites, and innovative genetics from hybridizers around the world. We have two seasons each year for roses. In the spring, we offer bare root rose bushes, bare root 36” trees, 24” patio trees, and container grown roses. Our fall season is all bush roses, and they are available in 2QT and 1GL containers.
