Arctic Blue Floribunda Rose Tree Form

Availability: Out of stock

For a hot summer accent tree, you've got to add the Arctic Blue™ Rose Tree (Rosa 'WEKblufytirar') from Nature Hills! This spectacular Rose produces clusters of large blooms with a very noteworthy color and an impeccably trained tree and flower form. Just like the shrub form of this plant, you'll turn heads with the big, fluffy and fragrant blooms of Arctic Blue™

Lovely as a seasonal plant across every area of the country. These very special plants introduce deliciously cool-colored flowers that are perfectly offset by refreshing mid-toned green foliage. Romantic to the extreme, Arctic Blue™ showcases lilac pink blossoms that are chilled by a unique lavender blue finish. Each bloom is iced with cool cream on the reverse.

The form is sophisticated, but each bloom is quite lavish. With a petal count between 35 - 40, you'll relish the repeat blooms of these clusters of lovely colored flowers. Hand-grafted to a 36" standard by some of the best plantsmen in the industry, this small tree will spark conversation and turn heads.

You'll be charmed every time you look at this prolific bloomer. The blooms won't fade as some old-fashioned varieties can. That soothing color combination remains fresh all the way through from bud to drop.

Spare a few of the noteworthy, slightly ruffled blooms for a gorgeous cut flower arrangement. No need to fret, as they'll be more coming soon all growing season! Hardy throughout USDA growing zones 5-10, Arctic Blue™ tolerates heat and chill with ease! One of our latest offerings, Arctic Blue displays a handsome rounded profile and disease resistance now elevated into a designer tree-form! Reduced pruning and spraying requirements make it much easier to care for.

Planting and Application:

Place this small Rose tree anywhere you want a lot of attention. With blooms from late spring all way through fall, Arctic Blue Rose draws the eye and keeps it there. This is a small tree that can be styled in several ways. It looks fantastic in a modern, slate gray geometric container. Or, add a pair on either side of the entrance to a Victorian-style gazebo.

Use near entrances, or create garden vignettes using this small tree as a focal point. It can be the main feature of a circular or island planting bed. If you'll keep them in containers, try 3 or 5 of them as a matched set along the length of your patio or front walk. Try a pair of them flanking on either side of your front door.

Of course, you can add them with other Rose bushes. The icy tones make a wonderful partner to the deep purple blooms of Ebb Tide Rose, one of its parents. Add in Blue Girl Hybrid Teas as a very special curated collection.

Elevate the look of your vegetable garden with four of these stylized plants. Use one in each corner, and get ready to see butterflies and other pollinators.

Whether you use it as a specimen plant, or repeat it in a mixed border, Arctic Blue™ is a true standout. Don't miss these outstanding Floribundas in your garden this season.

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Plant in full sun for the best blooms. At least 6 hours of direct sunlight is required. Rose trees need rich, but well-drained soil and won't tolerate wet feet. If you need to improve drainage, mound up by adding additional soil 18 inches high by 3 feet wide, then plant in that mound.

Or, keep them in containers filled with a rich organic soil mix in a protected location and winter protection too. Give them a medium amount of water on a regular basis. Apply a good organic, slow-release fertilizer in late winter and again in mid-summer. Roses appreciate a 3-4 inch thick layer of arborist mulch over the roots all growing season to keep them cool and moist.

Prune back heads hard in early spring just as they start to grow. Cut back to a healthy, thick bud that faces outward. Prune crossing branches and branches that head into the center of the canopy.

Rose Bush FAQs

Where Is The Best Place To Plant Roses Bushes?

Rose bushes prefer full sun and favor the drying power of the morning sun and flower best in at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. Choose a location in good, enriched soil that drains well and has good air circulation.

What Is The Best Month to Plant Roses?

You can plant Roses any time if you are able to provide enough consistent moisture and attention. While there is not a specific month that is best, generally because it changes with temperatures, climate and growing zone. However, the easiest times of the year to get Rose bushes established in your landscape are in spring after the last frost date, and in fall about 4-6 weeks before the first frost.

Do Rose Bushes Come Back Every Year?

Rose bushes are deciduous woody perennial shrubs and will return bigger and better each year.
