Product Overview

Rosa 'Fun in the Sun'
This new Grandiflora from renounced hybridizer Christian Bedard maintains its color to the end and provides a delightfully fruity scent, inviting butterflies and other pollinators to the garden. It's a true English-style rose that contains 60-85 petals in each of its 3-4" flower heads, appearing in clusters of 5 or 6 blooms per stem. True to its name, Fun in the Sun thrives in full sun with thorough watering early in the day.

Fun in the Sun Rose is a multi-stemmed deciduous shrub with an upright spreading habit of growth. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition.

This shrub will require occasional maintenance and upkeep, and is best pruned in late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed. It is a good choice for attracting bees to your yard. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Fun in the Sun Rose is recommended for the following landscape applications:

  • Accent
  • Mass Planting
  • Hedges/Screening
  • General Garden Use

Features

Fun in the Sun Rose features showy yellow and pink flowers at the ends of the branches from late spring to mid fall. The flowers are excellent for cutting. It has dark green foliage throughout the season. The glossy oval compound leaves do not develop any appreciable fall color. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.

 

Planting & Growing

Fun in the Sun Rose will grow to be about 4 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 4 feet. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front. It grows at a fast rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 30 years.

This shrub should only be grown in full sunlight. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This particular variety is an interspecific hybrid.
