A disease resistant rose with a sunny glow. To make it through our rose trials, a plant must first show superior disease resistance. Only then do we begin to evaluate it for good looks – and Suñorita® rose passed with flying colors. Gold, yellow, and orange colors, to be exact. A sturdy, vigorous shrub rose, it blooms perpetually on a mass of glossy, dark green foliage.
