A new spray rose cultivar “Sunny Lady” was bred from a cross between pink spray cultivar “Sentyna” and yellow spray cultivar “Yellow Mimi” at the National Horticulture Research Institute. The cross was made in 1999 and the “Sunny Lady” was finally selected in 2003 after investigating characteristics for three years from 2001 to 2003. “Sunny Lady”, a yellow spray cultivar, grows vigorously and emit medium fragrance.
