Plant Patent #17,083. Cultivar name: 'JACthain'. Redolent of sweet spices such as cloves and allspice, 'Tuscan Sun' matches the warm hues of its magnificent blooms with heady fragrance and healthy, glossy dark green foliage. A splendid sight in the border, containers, as a hedge, or in the foundation, this is a floribunda to enjoy all summer long.

Introduced in 2007 by American breeder Keith Zary, 'Tuscan Sun' sets masses of pointed buds in large clusters all over well-branched shrubs. The buds burst into high-centered blooms boasting the classic hybrid tea form and stunning color that combines burnt umber, orange, apricot, and rosy tones. Reaching an astonishing 4 inches wide, the flowers have a petal count of 25, and are splendid for cutting.

As impressive as the blooms is the foliage of this shrub. Resistant to powdery mildew and rust, it remains full and lush even in the heat and humidity of summer. Hardy through zone 9b, it is a great choice for gardens where other Roses may have struggled. Plant it fearlessly -- it will drink up the warm weather without dropping a leaf!

'Tuscan Sun' reaches 3 to 4 feet high and 2 1/2 to 3 feet wide. It is compact enough for large containers, yet impressive enough for perimeter plantings, low hedges, and the foundation. We highly recommend this superior landscape rose. Zones 6-10.
