These Roses are adaptable and stand up to the heat and full sun as well as humidity. Scentimental™ also tolerates a touch of the afternoon sun, especially in hotter climates to give it some reprieve from the summer sun. These Floribunda Roses have natural disease resistance but do even better when planted in an area with good air circulation, so you’ll spray less! Provide fertile, well-drained soil with moderate consistent moisture throughout the growing season. Add Nature Hills Root Booster while planting for a life-long symbiotic relationship with the tiny feeder roots.
A generous layer of mulch is fantastic for keeping moisture in the soil level, so you water less! As well as insulating the root ball from heat and chill. Fertilize your Rose 2 – 3 times a year with Rose food and deadhead to keep the blooms popping! Otherwise, this is a low-maintenance and easy-to-grow Rose bush that only needs an early spring pruning to start the flush of new growth for the year off right.
