Tips for Care:

Grandiflora Roses are easy to grow in full sun with at least six hours of sunlight. They do need well-drained soil, so create a raised bed or planting mound if your soil stays soggy after rainfall. Ensuring the soil is enriched and well-drained to enjoy the best performance and good air circulation is important. If you have heavy, wet soil, simply add additional soil to create an elevated planting mound.

Provide consistent supplemental water during flowering, and mulch around the plant without letting it touch the stems. Feed them high-quality Rose fertilizer as directed on the label. In autumn, rake, and bag up fallen leaf litter as yard waste. Roses appreciate a 3-4 inch layer of arborist mulch year-round.

Don’t forget the Nature Hills Root Booster, to give this fragrant Rose life-long support when used during planting. In early spring, start fresh by pruning all the canes down to six inches in early spring, cutting at a 45-degree angle above a nice, fat bud.

  • Great in Full Sun
  • Well-Drained Enriched Soil
  • Provide Moderate Regular Moisture & Mulch
  • Prune Early Spring
