Rosie the Riveter Rose (Rosa ‘WEKzazou’)
Rosie the Riveter Rose
Glowing beauty, strong garden presence! Just like the World War II-era icon herself, the Rosie the Riveter™ Rose Bush (Rosa ‘WEKzazou’) has a ‘Can do’ attitude in the garden! Fill your garden or your vases with resilient blushed beauties! These glorious Rose buds explode into a dramatic bloom of golden yellows, warm glowing oranges, and edges of scarlet pink, creating an incredible color combination!
Strength, perseverance, and femininity – this garden powerhouse features a spicy fruity Rose scent to complete the look! Bushy and compact, the full blooms fill out this gorgeous bush all summer! The dramatically glossy dark green foliage forms a rounded shrub that’s tough as nails.
This hardy Floribunda is a butterfly and bee favorite! Delightfully hardy and easy to grow throughout USDA growing zones 5 to 9 and maintains an easy-to-maintain 3-4 feet in height and 2-3 feet in width.
A modest-sized old-fashioned bloom like Rosie deserves a prominent place in the garden. A standout specimen and focal point, she’ll easily tuck into existing gardens and sunny porch pots with ease! Rosie is a fantastic gift for that strong woman you know, brightening their day for years to come for the cost of a high-end bouquet.
Create rows for low hedges or include this lovely bloomer among your Rose garden, Perennial bed, Cutting garden, or Cottage border for vases of golden orange blooms all growing season! Rosie the Riveter™ has broad red-blushed orange petals that are ruffled and fit into any sized garden!
Soften a corner planting or anchor a garden bed with this rounded shrub, or line the front of your foundation planting with radiant flowers. The dark foliage highlights smaller perennials and off-sets evergreen foliage beautifully! Hardy in containers and planters on sunny porches and patios, and balconies and add juicy color to seating areas and poolside plantings!
Floribunda Roses do their very best in the full sun! Provide a location where they receive morning sunlight and at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day for best results. Plant in fertile, well-drained soil with moderate, yet consistent moisture. Roses dislike soggy soil, so be sure to provide good drainage.
Mulch the surface over the root system well to retain moisture levels and insulate the roots from heat and chill. Fertilize 2-3 times a year and deadhead to keep your blooms returning and your Rose bush healthy!
A strong modern Rose with all the old-fashioned grace and beauty you’d expect from today’s landscaping hybrids!
