#ProPlantTips for Care:

Austrian Copper Rose has low water needs once established and tolerates full sun in a wide range of USDA growing zones. Plant in a site that has excellent drainage in about any kind of soil. Roses prefer ample moisture throughout the growing season, but Austrian Copper is a low water usage shrub once it has become established.

Flowers are produced in late spring or early summer on last year's growth so don't prune them in spring or you will remove the flowers. Instead, prune after flowers fade for a clean appearance and renewed growth. Renewal prune out the thickest, oldest stems leaving the thinner stems in place for best bloom and keeping the more natural form. Can be kept narrower by not allowing the plant to spread out.

Rose Bush FAQs

Where Is The Best Place To Plant Rose Bushes?

Roses need a protected location and 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 Roses Come Back Every Year?

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