How to Use Cinco de Mayo Rose in the Landscape

You'll be proud to show off Cinco de Mayo Rose in your space. This is a medium, rounded and bushy plant with glossy green foliage.

The warm tones of Cinco de Mayo Rose blends perfectly with any color in the garden! Keep your guests guessing the color of each bloom.

Freshen up mature plantings with Cinco de Mayo Rose. The pleasing mounded habit works equally well in the border, or as a hedge.

Space them three feet apart, measuring from the center of one to the center of the next. You'll have a zesty low hedge in a season or two.

Add more rows, staggered in zigzagging rows behind the first to create an effective mass planting. The depth and breadth of color tones are extraordinary!

Of course, you can easily nestle several amongst your favorite perennials. No Butterfly Garden would be complete without extended bloomers like Cinco de Mayo!

#ProPlantTips for Care

Supply full sun and plenty of air circulation for your Roses. They also need well-drained soil; as their roots won't tolerate standing water.

If your soil is heavy, or stays soggy after rain...elevate them in raised beds. You can easily grow Roses in outdoor containers to improve drainage, too.

Dig your planting hole twice as wide as the roots, but no deeper. Keep the soil level the same as we have grown in at the nursery.

Be sure to add the symbiotic ingredients of Nature Hills Root Booster to the planting hole. This life-long formula never wears out in it's support of tiny feeder roots.

Give Cinco de Mayo Roses consistent water, especially container-grown plants. Add a three-inch layer of mulch around your plant, and pull it back away from touching the canes.

Don't forget to apply specialty Rose fertilizer according to the label instructions. Reblooming Roses do best with supplemental feeding.

In fall, bag and remove all leaf litter. In colder zones, late November is the right time to mound up mulch over the remaining canes for overwintering.

Wait to prune Roses until early spring. Pull the mulch away and prune each of the Rose canes down to 6 - 8 inches at a 45-degree angle just above a nice, fat bud.

It's no wonder Cinco de Mayo won the coveted All American Rose Selection. Order yours from today...we'll ship it when the time is right for planting in your area!
