Enormous round petals always translate to BIG blossoms with lovely flower form. In the case of Sunstruck, each large petal is an artistic masterpiece of deep yellow gold blushed & bordered with apricot orange. A surprising bright yellow 'peacock' fan pattern on the reverse of each petal gives this rose its name. Long stems with deep green leaves carry each regal flower.

Note:   Kathy Dodson recently planted this new rose and has been reading that it is a beautiful rose with exhibition potential.
