Truly vibrant color is a tough goal in grandiflora hybridization. Making that color hold up well is even harder to achieve. All of that plus good disease resistance is incredibly difficult. So when Burst of Joy™ totally delivered in all of those qualities, the name came really easily. Even in hotter environments, the bright bicolor holds on really well. It eventually turns a pretty coral, still with that yellow reverse. The bloom shape is classic and well–formed. You'll get more stems with just one flower than you would on most floribundas, it's almost like a hybrid tea flower on a compact floribunda habit. In fact, it's compact enough that it can be used in a large patio pot. The disease resistance, though average for modern grandifloras, is pretty remarkable for one with such an exotic bloom color.
