Drop Dead Red™ Tree Form (Rosa "WEKcharlie') stands out in any landscape. Give it sun, and let it shine for you and your guests.

The showy floribunda blooms are held in clusters of fully double Roses. Each precise, pointed bud is a vision, and opens to an impeccably well-formed bloom.

The tree form Rose is a wonderfully modern way to accent your home or condo. It's compact and dynamic, with a rounded canopy of lush, deep green, ultra lustrous foliage.

Your new garden focal point features velvety Roses for months. You'll be absolutely thrilled with the high level of performance.

As you might imagine from the name, this Rose isn't meek or mild. With 25 - 30 petals per bloom, it lends your landscape a sleek, designer style.

This high-end plant is low effort, as well. Grow it in the ground, or place it in a large container. Keep it watered and fed, and pruned once a year.

With very good disease resistance to those commonplace Rose challenges, you'll have few reasons to spray. This modern Floribunda really has it all. It blooms its head off for you, without asking much in return.

Use the incredible, fiery shade of the blooms in your indoor cut flower arrangements. Don't forget to include the dark green foliage as an amazing contrast.

The blooms won't fade the way some of the old-fashioned varieties do. It remains that astonishing true red all the way through from bud to drop.

Please hurry to place your order. We'll run out of our crop every single year. Order this hot plant today!

How to Use Drop Dead Red™ Tree Form in the Landscape

It would look fantastic on your front porch and be a magnificent addition to your rose or perennial garden. It's even urban-tolerant, so would serve as a beautiful accent on an apartment balcony.

A simple rule of thumb to start. Pop this decorative accent plant in an area where you want heads to turn and eyes to be drawn towards.

Use them near your front door to boost the impact of your entryway. Flank a pair on either side, if you have the space. Or, use a single tree in an offset, mulched garden bed.

Style them as you like. Use a restrained approach with a low-maintenance planting of Red Carpet Sedum planted around your Rose Tree.

Or layer in complementary colors to make a statement. Underplant your tree with Invincibelle Wee White Hydrangea and Blue Mist Bluebeard. Revel in a variety of tones of Cheyenne Winds Coneflower.

Drop Dead Red Rose Tree Form will look amazing, no matter what you pair with it. From contemporary casual to formal, this hard-working accent tree will become a standout.

Create a stunning look in an island garden bed. They'll look best in an odd-number. Place one, three, five or seven in a line.

Curve the jaw droppingly beautiful line, or keep it straight. Measure six feet apart on center, from the center of one to the center of the next.

For a bold look on the patio, try them in charcoal gray resin containers. Line them up to create an easy backdrop for a very stylish summer.

#ProPlantTips for Care

Roses need a planting site in full sun for the best blooms. Provide six hours of direct sunlight.

They'll also need well-drained soil that sheds water quickly. Improve drainage with a raised bed. Simply add additional soil 18 inches high by 3 feet wide and finish with a landscape edge.

You can easily grow them in containers filled with a rich organic soil mix. Water carefully to ensure they receive a medium amount of water on a regular basis.

Prune back the canopy hard in early spring to about 12 inches. The canopy will grow right back and bloom for you on new wood.

Cut back to a healthy, thick bud that faces outward. Prune out crossing branches. Eliminate branches that grow into the center of the canopy.

You'll want to apply an organic, slow release fertilizer in late winter and again in mid-summer. Follow the application rates on the package.

How fun to enjoy the perfect, red blooms up close on this tree form plant. Our experts take such scrupulous care of their creations.

You'll be beyond thrilled with the high quality and sheer visual impact of these beautiful plants all summer long. Drop Dead Red Rose Tree can live up to 30 years in optimal conditions. Order Drop Dead Red Rose tree form from our world-class growers at Nature Hills today!
