Include the beauty of this sumptuous Rose bush to your garden this season. Grow in the ground, or keep in a sophisticated outdoor container. Elevate the planter on pot feet to allow water to drain away. Please don’t use saucers underneath outdoor containers, these shrubs despise sitting in water.
Decorate a tiny balcony or porch with bold cherry-pink blooms. Consider using a resin planter for a light-weight decoration. Why not add a matched trio along the length of your balcony railing? Attain instant chic and incredible eye candy to enjoy all growing season-long. Fiji™ is happy anywhere sunny!
If you have the space, go big and bold with this incredible Rose! Space them three feet apart, measuring from the center of one to the center of the next. Roses need air circulation, but this spacing will give you a lush “ribbon” of saturated color.
Rethink how you use modern Roses, as they certainly aren’t fussy hothouse flowers. Weave them into Butterfly Gardens to take advantage of their extended bloom seasons. That dark pink color makes Fiji™ Eleganza® Rose a great mixer. Whether in the garden or in a vase, because we’re sure you’ll not be able to resist snipping a few of these gorgeous clusters for your indoor bouquets! The more you snip, the more this variety reblooms!
Enjoy pushing the design envelope with these charming Roses. Amp up their drama with dark purple or near-black leaved shrubs or anywhere in the Rose garden as a focal point!
Hybrid Tea Roses need full sun, with at least six hours of sunlight a day and good air circulation is important. The morning sun is best if you have it! Ensure the soil is enriched and well-drained to enjoy the best performance. Raise the planting bed, if needed to improve the drainage. Use mulch to help keep the roots moist, and avoid splashing water onto the foliage.
Water new plants well, and add a layer of mulch to cover the root system. Please pull it back away from touching the stems. Keep the ground near your Roses hydrated on a regular schedule. Use a soaker hose when possible to avoid splashing the foliage. They also appreciate a schedule of Rose fertilizer, following the instructions on the label. Roses are heavy feeders, and need support for those lavish blooms!
Prune Hybrid Tea Roses in early spring, removing any broken branches. Trim it down by shortening up the canes to 6-8 inches, cutting at a 45-degree angle just above a larger bud. Thin out the thickest canes down to ground level. This will leave younger, thinner canes to flourish and produce the healthiest blooms.
Enjoy this magnificent labor of love (and love only because this Rose is so low-maintenance!).
