Showy Rose trees look incredible near evergreens! If you want to jazz up your existing foundation plantings or mature trees, create a mass planting in a mulched bed or raised berm.

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Floribunda Rose bushes need proper air circulation and site selection is very important too. They need full sun, well-drained soil, and regular fertilizer and water to develop the richest purple coloration possible! Roses require well-drained soil, so improve drainage by mounding up extra soil for planting in.

Use symbiotic Nature Hills Root Booster during planting to create life-long support for the tiny feeder roots. Modern Roses can live up to 30 years...and this formula never "wears out". Rose trees need some extra winter protection, so provide shelter from the worst of the cold weather or move them to a more sheltered location if possible. Add a 3-4 inch thick layer of mulch over the root zone for many benefits and to make your garden look picture-perfect!

Rose Tree Pruning

Early each spring, after the last frost has passed, it's always a good idea to prune back the Rose tree several inches to maintain the nice round form atop its trunk. Keep new blooms returning with occasional deadheading, quickly improving your overall display.

Prune away suckers and branching that forms at the base or on the trunk each year too. Pruning Roses allows for better, bushier growth each year. Pruning Roses allows for better, bushier growth each year and stimulates new growth.

Rose Bush FAQs

Where Is The Best Place To Plant Rose 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.
