Plant them 18 inches apart for a lovely low hedge. They’ll add structure and help you reimage your space with their incredible color and showy style.
People across the country are grooming their mature foundation plantings. Trim back overgrown evergreens and pop in a happy row of Calypso Roses on the sunny side.
You can also create a narrow planting bed on the other side of your front walk for a delightful entrance. Just plant them three feet from the edge of your sidewalk to avoid snagging clothing.
Include them along the edge of formal Rose garden beds. They’ll also be a wonderfully low-maintenance alternative to annual bedding plants when massed in the center of Boxwood-lined squares and rectangles.
Keep them as “Thrillers” in a series of containers for a lovely display. You’ll have your own Cutting Garden, even at rental properties.
Mix Calypso Roses as an accent in Butterfly Gardens, too. Their glowing hues partner so well with a myriad of other colors…spanning the color wheel from cool-toned Bluebeards to spicy Coneflower and Rudbeckia.
And of course, you won’t be the only one who would appreciate their charming color and easy-breezy care requirements. Why not gift these beauties for Mother’s Day…or simply to show appreciation for a light-hearted loved one.
Provide Shrub Roses full sun and well-drained soil. Morning sun is best, and they’ll need at least six hours of light per day to produce those beautiful blooms.
Give them good air circulation, pulling containers out a little way from walls. Add Nature Hills Root Booster during planting to create symbiotic support for the tiny feeder roots as they take up micronutrients from the soil.
Provide an even, consistent schedule of water. This is especially important during the flushes of flower production throughout the growing season.
Apply a three-inch layer of mulch, and pull it back away from directly touching the stems. You’ll keep your Roses nice and clean…and their root systems cool and moist with mulch.
In late fall, rake and remove all the fallen foliage from underneath your Calypso. The next year in early spring as they start to wake up, trim the stems to eight inches.
