#ProPlantTips for Care:

Hot Cocoa™ Rose Tree is a deciduous tree that appreciates being planted in well-drained soil. Containers work extremely well for this specimen. It also loves soaking up as much sun as it can so planting somewhere in full sun is a good idea. Site selection is actually the most important aspect. Making sure the soil is well draining is important as well! Growing Roses in outdoor containers or in the ground requires a consistent schedule of supplemental moisture. Don't forget to add a thick layer of Mulch.

Rose Trees are easy to maintain and extremely disease resistant! No need to worry about common Rose ailments anymore! Fertilize each spring with a slow-release or controlled-release fertilizer should do the trick and leave your shrub happier and healthier than ever.

Rose Tree Care & Pruning

Some winter protection for Tree Form Roses is suggested for the colder zones 5 and 6 and some of zone 7 too by overwintering in an unheated garage after it goes dormant, or outside with straw and burlap wrap. Then in spring, take it back out or unwrap it and trim the head back to about a 12" sphere just as it begins to grow again in spring.

Early each spring, after the last frost of the year has passed, it's always a good idea to prune back your Rose by trimming the head back to about a 12" sphere to maintain the nice round form atop its trunk. Keep new blooms returning with occasional deadheading, quickly improving your overall display.

Prune away suckers and branching that forms at the base or on the trunk each year too. Pruning Roses allows for better, bushier growth each year and stimulates new growth.

Rose Bush FAQs

Where Is The Best Place To Plant Rose Bushes?

Rose bushes 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.

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