    Sun-drenched color on an easy care rose!

    In our 5+ years of trialing it, no one could walk by Suñorita rose without saying, "What IS that?!" So once it met our standards for disease resistance and non-stop blooming, making it available for your garden was a no brainer. The elegant, classically shaped buds are red orange and open to reveal a soft orange bloom made up of several dozen petals, perfectly shaped to form a classic rose "bowl."  As the blooms age, they develop a golden tone. Deep green foliage covers the sturdy, medium-sized plant and easily resists common rose diseases like black spot or powdery mildew. Blooms from spring through frost without deadheading. 

    As seen in the Chica Bonita ad.

    Top reasons to grow Suñorita rose:

    - Delightful orange flowers with classic form in bud and bloom.

    - Highly disease resistant.

    - Flowers all season without having to remove old blooms.

    Continuous Bloom or Rebloomer

    Uses Notes: 

    Plant Suñorita rose as a striking specimen, flowering hedge, or as a backdrop for other plants. It also works well in perennial gardens to provide non-stop blooms.

    Maintenance Notes: 

    Prune Suñorita rose in early spring, just as the new growth begins, to ensure that the growth for the season comes from the thicker, more vigorous buds farther down on the plant. The plant can be pruned in fall as well, though fall pruning of roses is generally recommended more in warm climates. 

    Like all Proven Winners roses, Suñorita is highly disease resistant, but should be planted in full sun (min. 6 hours a day; 8+ hours preferred) and with good air circulation to ensure the very best performance. Deadheading is not required for continuous blooming.

    • I bought two of these because I fell in love with them on Laura’s channel. I bought them in preparation of a big move to a new home-that was delayed by over two months! These two workhorses lived in an apartment window in very unsuitable conditions, including remaining in their shipping pots, until we moved. Other plants I had bought of course perished (through no fault of their own). We’ve been moved less than a month and they’re both blooming their heads off! They’re a bit small, but they NEVER lost their dark, glossy leaf color, wonderful tidy habit, and the color of these blooms makes me giddy with excitement every morning when a new one pops up! To say I’m impressed is an absolute understatement and I’m debating on just putting these all over the flower bed-their blooms are so wonderfully multicolored that I think it would give a great effect in mass! Thanks PW!

    • I planted Sunorita in June. I also planted another non-Proven Winners rose bush at the same time. They were the same size at planting. They were planted 3 to 3 1/2 feet apart. The non-Proven Winners bush put on a lot of growth and bloomed nicely throughout the season. Sunorita gave me two blooms on a plant that remained the same size as when I bought it. I accidently stepped on part of it while putting up Halloween decorations. Yes, it was so small I could step on it. When I reached down to examine it, I realized it had not rooted in. The plant was easy to move in the soil. Nearly 4 months and the root ball was still the size of the container it came in. I was able to pull it out with my hand. Unbelievable! It's in the compost now. The other rose is well rooted and getting pretty established. I've bought many other plants from Proven Winners, and its been hit or miss. I actually don't think anything but Limelight hydrangeas have done well for me. Anyhow, that's a wrap. I'm done with Proven Winners.

    • California 9B redwood coastal mountain garden (hot dry summers and cold wet windy winters). I bought (3) of these spring 2022. They all arrived in nice condition and equal in size. I planted them next to each other in the same bed - and got a Papa Bear, Mama Bear & Baby Bear. LOL... It was fun and funny to watch. The bed is slightly sloped and uneven so I attribute that to the different growth rates. Regardless, all three struggled at first with black spot once I planted them. I removed the mulch with intention to replace and make sure water was even, but got behind on my project and the bed got left no mulch and drip water to each plant base. I treated a few times during the summer with 3-in-1 for Roses, fertilized a few times, and kept the foliage trimmed up to be away from the ground. I also regularly pruned Papa and Mama to similar forms and let Baby catch up. All three bloomed! Lovely colors which changed throughout the life of the flower. This made the plant look like it had 4 or five different colored flowers at any given time. Papa grew thick stems; Baby is petite but healthy. They kept most leaves during winter and have handled extreme wet, windy, and sometimes freezing, west facing winter exposure. They are a neighborhood favorite - I can't wait until they all get bigger and grow together.
