Pretty Lady Rose (Rosa ‘WEKdadoda’)
Pretty Lady Rose
Spectacular Downton Abbey selection, the Pretty Lady™ Rose will wow fans of the wildly popular Downton Abbey series! You will notice a resemblance to the independent young Lady Rose MacClare. For a deep, clear, strong and feminine Rose that’s pretty without fuss then let us introduce you to the Pretty Lady™ Rose (Rosa ‘WEKdadoda’)!
A refined enchantress, this decidedly modern Rose is an improved Hybrid Tea that’s been blessed by good looks and a unique, delicious English-style Rose fragrance! The petals are a strong, fuchsia pink without hesitation, streaks, or uneven breaks. Every ruffled bloom is 4 – 5 inches across with 45 to 65 petals each! You’ll have both single blooms and small clusters, held aloft on strong stems that give you plenty of varied lengths to use in a bud vase.
This Hybrid Tea Rose is hardy throughout USDA growing zones 6 through 9 and the non-fading, evenly-hued, deep-green foliage creates a perfect backdrop for the gorgeous blooms. Disease resistant and seldom damaged by deer or rabbits, you’ll enjoy an easy-care, brilliant, free-flowering Rose that will provide enjoyment for years to come!
Use Pretty Lady™ near the front of the garden bed with taller shrubs or evergreens behind it to help it stand out. The glossy, dark green foliage is a sight to be seen on its own, and adds to the dramatic effect of the saturated blossoms! The pollinators will gratefully seek out your yard to sip the nectar and you will have armloads of blooms for vase arrangements!
Fantastically sized to tuck into any existing or established landscape, you’ll certainly have room for a Pretty Lady™ or two! Even container, balcony, and rooftop gardeners can enjoy a few in large planters! The space-saving 2-3 foot height and width add gorgeous facer plants, edging along walkways and in courtyards regardless of size!
Or, place a collection in pots for your patio or front walk, lending a carefree and formal look to paths and your front entry. The overall impression of this bush is compact and healthy and the blooms are highly saturated drifts of color!
Need a real spectacle for a front yard garden? Plant the Pretty Lady™ Rose bush alternately with its counterpart Pretty Lady™ Tree-Form Rose! You can also use these Rose bushes as fantastic living groundcover and facer plants with the punctuation of Rose Trees in the middle!
Roses bloom best in full sun and need to be planted in generously mulched, enriched, well-drained soil and provide moderate, yet consistent moisture throughout the growing season. Ensuring the soil is enriched and well-drained to enjoy the best performance and good air circulation is important.
Water new plants regularly so they do not dry out between waterings. Use 3-4 inches of arborist mulch to help keep the roots moist and keep the ground near your Roses hydrated on a regular schedule once established to support the blooms, avoiding splashing the foliage. Apply 3-4 inches of arborist mulch and apply Rose fertilizer 2-3 times a year for best results.
Prune canes to 6 – 8 inches above the crown in early spring.
Make a bold statement with a charming dark-pink Pretty Lady Rose™ Bush!
