Growing Tips

Best in well drained, moist soil but tolerant of most soil conditions. Moderate to fast growth habit. This rose does not need to be sprayed or pruned like many other rose varieties. May be pruned to shape in spring. Heavy fertilization will help increase blooming. Apply a controlled release fertilizer in spring.
