#ProPlantTips for Care:

Grandiflora Roses perform best in full sun where they receive at least six hours of sunlight. Provide good air circulation and well-drained soil, as well. A consistent schedule of supplemental water during flowering will keep your Rose stress-free. Roses appreciate a 3-4 inch layer of arborist mulch year-round. Apply high-quality Rose fertilizer as directed on the label.

Don't forget the Nature Hills Root Booster, to give this fragrant Rose life-long support when used during planting. In early spring, start fresh by pruning all the canes down to six inches in early spring, cutting at a 45-degree angle above a nice, fat bud.

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.
