The double flowers open from very pointed buds into a classic Hybrid Tea shape that features around 25 rounded petals and a white mid-rib stripe on the outer petals. Each of these showy Tea Roses can reach up to five inches across! Can you picture the glamorous high impact it makes on your landscape? Not to mention all the happy butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds!

In The Mood™ is an upright, rounded bushy landscape plant with excellent genetics and disease resistance, hybridized by the famous Tom Carruth. Tolerating heat and humidity throughout USDA hardiness zones 5 through 10, there is very little these tough Hybrid Teas won't be able to withstand in your growing zone!

Planting and Application:

The bold red Roses are perfectly contrasted by matte green foliage with a touch of gray, or highlighting a hedge or foundation row of evergreens!

Even container gardens can accommodate this modest-sized shrub! Keep In The Mood™ Rose in patio pots along your sun-drenched deck or balcony railing. These luxurious bushes help hide unsightly views as a pretty privacy screen!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Plant your Rose in full sun where they will receive at least six hours of sunlight a day, favoring morning sun to dry the leaves of dew. Roses also need well-drained soil and good air circulation to stay happy and healthy for years. Easy to grow, simply plant in organically enriched soil. Dig your planting hole twice as wide as the roots, but no deeper. Keep the soil level the same as we have them grown in at the nursery. Don't forget to add a 3-4 inch thick layer of arborist mulch.

Hybrid Tea Roses deserve the life-long support of symbiotic Nature Hills Root Booster at the time of planting. If the weather is dry, plan to give them a regular schedule of supplemental water. Feed your blooms a high-quality fertilizer according to the label directions.

Always wait to prune Roses until early spring when you pull the mulch away. At that time, prune each of the Rose canes down to 6 - 8 inches at a 45-degree angle just 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.
