Miniature Roses do their very best in full sun, and Hot & Sassy™ thrives in it! Growing in USDA growing zones 5-10, Roses prefer good air circulation and morning sun to dry the leaves.
Favoring morning sun, easy-care modern Rose bushes do their very best in the full sun, so provide an area with good air circulation in at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day for the strongest stems and the most blossoms. Plant in enriched, highly organic soil that drains very well and has a 3-4 inch thick layer of mulch over the surface. Provide regular moisture and deep watering right up until the ground freezes.
Prune in early spring, just as the new buds start to emerge on the stems. You'll trim at least one-third of its total height each early spring. Cut at a 45-degree angle just above a nice new bud.

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.
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.
