ips for Care:

These easy-to-grow Rose bushes thrive in the full sun! Tolerating just a touch of afternoon shade in the hottest of its climate range. Plant in a consistently moist environment with highly enriched, well-draining soil. Provide a thick layer of mulch over the root system to chase away the chill and keep the roots cool in the summer heat, plus regulate soil moisture! Roses do best with regular applications of quality, slow-release Rose fertilizer, and a site enriched with composted manure.

Growing 3-4 feet in height and width, these are fast-growing flowering ornamentals! Roses do well with early spring pruning to cut back all the canes to 6-8 inches above the crown, giving you a full shrub of lush new growth each year. Pruning Roses allows for better, bushier growth each year and stimulates new growth.
