How to Use Color Cocktail Rose in the Landscape

Create a unique, multi-colored look that is breathtaking with a mass planting of this hard-working Shrub Rose. Space them 12 inches apart in rows; staggering additional rows behind in a zigzagging pattern for a fast fill.

They'll brighten up sunny areas that need a little "oomph". Take a look around your home to see where you could use a perky low hedge to bring structure and color.

Run a happy edging of Color Cocktail Roses along your front walkway. Give at least two feet of room from the center of the plant to the edge of the sidewalk to avoid snags.

Plant several in a large outdoor container to showcase their charming colorway. Roses can live for many, many years with adequate hydration in a well-drained pot.

Flank either side of your front door with a pair of containers. Or, use one to highlight the entrance to a planned garden path.

This is an easy choice to repeat along your pool deck, out of the way of foot traffic. Gain a fun backdrop for very little work...and enjoy it year after year!

If you're searching for a meaningful gift, why not select Color Cocktail Rose? It makes a thoughtful way to remind someone of your love, season after season.

For the same cost as a long-stemmed can grow your own blooms at home. This extraordinary Rose deserves a high-profile position in your patio plantings!

#ProPlantTips for Care

Disease-resistant Color Cocktail Rose won't need much ongoing care. However, you'll want to spend time giving your Rose the best site to grow.

Plant Color Cocktail Rose in full sun with good air circulation. Morning sun is best, but it needs at least six or more hours of direct sun.

Roses like to have a consistent amount of hydration, but their roots can't tolerate growing in standing water. Make sure you choose a site with well-drained soil.

Add extra soil to create a planting mound or raised bed, if you see puddles a long time after a rain. Or, keep them in containers to improve your drainage.

Use Nature Hills Root Booster when planting. This highly recommended formula contains symbiotic ingredients that support the feeder roots...and it never wears out!

Give a moderate amount of water regularly. You'll want to mulch over the root system, but pull it away from directly touching the stems.

Roses are hungry, and need a good slow-release fertilizer in early spring and mid-summer. Use a formula for flowering plants for best results.

Prune Color Cocktail Rose down to six inches in early spring. The blooms occur each year on new growth from the base of the plant.

Be sure to rake up all the fallen leaf litter in late fall. Bag and dispose Rose leaves for good hygiene.

Get the color you crave without a rigorous spray schedule. Order Color Cocktail Rose today, and we'll ship it when the time is right for planting in your area.

Track your package all the way to your doorstep. Open the box, and give your new plant a nice long drink before you plant it. Enjoy!
