The Sundance rose bears golden yellow blooms edged in pink. These Grandiflora Roses are classic Hybrid tea form flowers worthy of exhibition.
They are sometimes classified as Hybrid Teas.
They have a moderate sweet scent that adds to their charm. They will give you small clusters of these high centered bloom form flowers continually all season.
They open from pointed, ovoid buds to become 4" flowers that have 17-25 petals, and a ruffly edge. The contrast of the colors is stunning, both in the vase, and on the bush.
The Sundance rose does well in warm climates. It seems to love the sun and is very heat tolerant, producing blooms when others will not.
The bright, golden yellow flowers really display well on the dark green glossy foliage.
The name suits it well;being heat/sun tolerant, and having the brilliant golden yellow color of the sun.
This is a vigorous growing rose bush. A mature Sundance can grow 5 - 5 1/2' tall by around 4' wide. It grows tall and upright, with lots of foliage, and lots of flower producing canes for more flowers!
