#ProPlantTips for Care:

Disease resistant and overall hardy, Como Park Rose is a low-maintenance shrub that won't ask much of you in return for its glorious display. Como Park Roses need good air circulation and lots of sunshine. Look for a planting site that gets morning sun if possible, with at least six or more hours of full sun a day.

Well-drained soil drains quickly after rain, and keeps its root systems healthy. Create a raised bed, or planting mound if you need to improve drainage. Apply a moderate amount of water to keep the soil around your Roses moist. Add a three-inch layer of mulch to cut down on surface evaporation, but pull it back away from directly touching the stems.

Feed them in early spring and mid-summer with a slow-release fertilizer for flowering plants. Read the label for correct application rates. Rake up the fallen leaves in late fall, and bag them up and remove them from the area. Prune all of the stems down to six inches each year in spring, just after the plants start to wake up. Read all you need about Rose pruning Roses Here, and about winterizing your Roses Here, and un-wintering Roses in Spring in our #ProPlantTips Garden Blog!

Rose Bush FAQs

Where Is The Best Place To Plant Rose Bushes?

Rose Trees 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.
