Rosa persica is a rose species from Afghanistan, Iran, and Central Asia which used to be listed as a separate species Hulthemia. Its flowers are beautiful and unique but everything else is difficult – thorny foliage, unsightly habit, and unreliable garden performance – they are almost impossible to transplant. Luckily, they respond well to crossing with other, reliable rose species and the first hybrids were made after 2000. Their scientific name is x Hulthemosa but for marketing purposes they are still called just Rosa.

PERSIAN SUN® hybrid Persian rose shines with its semi-double, golden orange flowers. They are usually composed of 10 petals and decorated with slightly blurred, red flecks forming a wide eye in the centre owing to which they resemble hibiscus flowers. The main flowering season is from late May until mid July, then comes a short summer break, and new flowers reappear from late summer till early autumn.

Deciduous leaves are medium green, partly glossy, and usually composed of 5 leaflets. They are often healthy until late summer when rust or mildew may be a slight problem but will not affect plant’s health. It grows moderately into a densely branched, upright shrub with deep red stems reaching about 1m tall and a little less wide. It was bred by Martin Vissers from Belgium around 2015 as a cross between another Hulthemosa hybrid Alissar, Princess of Phoenicia, and a floribunda rose Julia Child™.

Planting instructions: Prepare a hole of size 30x30 cm. Put your rose in the way that the grafting point is 3 cm deep in the soil. Water well and cover new shoots with soil or bark mulch about 15 cm high. Roses tolerate wide range of soils but thrive in deep, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil, in full sun.

Pruning: Cut the branches in halves in autumn and prune hard to 3-5 live buds in spring after danger of frosts. Spent flowers are best removed as they begin to fade. Cut off spent flowering clusters just above the leaf with 5 leaflets or deeper if rejuvenating is desired during vegetation and follow a regular feeding programme.

  • DE LUXE QUALITY - This label guarantees a luxurious quality of manually selected plants that, compared to their height and age, are exceptionally dense and beautiful.
  • EXTRA - These plants are usually mature and bigger specimens with exceptional overall appearance.

  • HOBBY - These plants are of the same quality as our standard-quality plants but younger and therefore cheaper.
  • SHRUB - a woody plant with branches growing bushy from the ground level.
  • HALF-STANDARD or MINI-STANDARD - a small tree with shorter trunk, its size is usually specified.
  • FEATHERED - These are trees with branches growing already from the base of the trunk and up along the stem.
