First Prize Rose flowers best in full sun with at least six hours of sun a day, especially favoring morning sun to dry the leaves of dew. Give these Hybrid Teas well-drained soil, as their roots won't tolerate standing water. Consistent watering is best during the long season of flowering. Feed as directed with a high-quality Rose fertilizer. Topdress with a 3-4 inch layer of arborist mulch to hold in moisture and insulate the roots. Provide good air circulation and a location with the morning sun to dry their leaves.

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.
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.
Rose bushes are deciduous woody perennial shrubs and will return bigger and better each year.
