Rosa 'Sunsprite' (Floribunda Rose)

Rose 'Sunsprite', Rosa 'KORresia', Shrub Roses, Floribunda Roses


Rosa 'Sunsprite' is a compact variety of floribunda rose boasting strongly-scented, full, high-centered, bright golden-yellow flowers, 3 in. across (8 cm). Packed with 30 elegantly ruffled petals, the glowing flowers are borne mostly solitary and bloom in continuous flushes from late spring into fall. They keep their deep golden color, do not fade, and stand out against the healthy foliage of semi-glossy, light green leaves. Compact and bushy, this small shrub of upright, rounded habit is terrific for beds and borders, containers and makes a lovely flowering hedge. Excellent disease resistance.

  • Grows up 3-4 ft. tall and wide (90-120 cm).
  • Best grown in full sun in rich, fertile with adequate moisture, well-drained soils. For best flowering apply a balanced fertilizer and mulch in late winter or early spring and a balanced fertilizer again in early summer.
  • Propagate by hardwood cuttings in autumn or by chip budding in summer
  • Spring Pruning: Remove old canes and dead or diseased wood and cut back canes that cross. In warmer climates, cut back the remaining canes by about one-third. In colder areas, you'll probably find you'll have to prune a little more than that.
  • Bred by Reimer Kordes (1922-1997) (Germany, 1973).
