Planting and Application:

There are many different ways to include these versatile little cuties in your landscape!

Try Sunsprite massed in a gentle curve around a special statue to draw your eye. Plant them in a sweet little row along your front walk. These would look “spic and span” as a straight hedge along a white picket fence. Dress them up or down, this Rose easily creates a bridge between elegance and charm! Modern urban courtyards or formal garden beds or flouncy and free-form cottage gardens, all easily make this Floribunda feel right at home!

Make that hot color pop against smaller pink, purple, and blue flowers and blue-toned foliage plants. Yellow Roses make a fantastic display against houses painted white, gray, taupe, brown or clad in stone facing.

Tall enough to be a formidable barrier, line your property edges with thorned shrubs that will make intruders think twice before crossing. But with such lovely green foliage and vivid blooms, everyone will enjoy the view! Back of the border hedges to highlight other plants and shrubs, or brighten an existing Rose garden with these bright sunspots!

Greet your guests with a pair planted on either side of your front entry or a pair astride the entrance to your backyard pathways. Use them as “thrillers” in sleek, tall resin Containers. Place potted Sunsprites along a sunny patio or line your driveway with these vivid blossoms.

Tips for Care:

Roses bloom their very best in the full sun, favoring the morning sunlight to dry the leaves of dew. Preferring at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. For the healthiest shrub possible, plant your Sunsprite into well-drained soil that’s highly enriched. Be sure to provide consistent, but moderate soil moisture throughout the entire growing season. These Floribunda Roses have natural disease resistance but do even better when planted in an area with good air circulation.

A generous layer of mulch helps retain soil moisture as well as insulate the root system from heat and chill. Add Nature Hills Root Booster while planting for a life-long symbiotic relationship with the tiny feeder roots.

Low maintenance and easy care, this bright gem only needs annual pruning in the very early spring before your Rose gets growing. Prune back to about 6-8 inches for a full flush of renewed growth, or just remove old canes to maintain the shrub’s vigorous growth.
