Tips for Care:

Just be sure you provide it with full sun, rich, well-drained soil, and water it well at its base. Hybrid Tea Roses need full sun and good air circulation to do their best! Provide a location with the morning sun to dry their leaves and only water at the root zone. Plant in enriched, highly organic, and fertile soil that is well-drained – never soggy. Water regularly, especially throughout the hot summer months.

Don’t prune this Rose in fall or winter, but instead wait until spring just as the plants start to grow before pruning all of the stems down to 6 inches. For more information on pruning Roses, winterizing your Roses, and un-wintering Roses in spring, head over to our #ProPlantTips Garden Blog!
