#ProPlantTips for Care:

Easy to care for Shrub Roses need plenty of air circulation and lots of daily sunshine. Select a planting site where they'll get morning sun if possible, and ensure they receive at least six or more hours of full sun a day. Consistent water is key to keeping your Roses happy. Spread out a three-inch layer of mulch to keep the root ball cool and moist, but don't let it rest directly against the stems.

No soggy soils for Roses, please. Well-drained soil sheds water quickly to keep its root systems healthy. Bring in more soil for a raised bed or planting mound, if you need to improve drainage. Container-grown Roses also need adequate drainage holes and avoid the use of saucers outside. Use a good slow-release fertilizer in early spring and mid-summer. Choose a formula for flowering plants and follow the directions on the label.

Each fall, rake up and bag fallen leaf litter to place in your yard waste. In early spring, trim the canes down to six inches at a 45-degree angle just above a fat bud. Prune in early spring before you see new growth to 6 - 8 inches above the crown and mulch the site well for insulation and moisture retention.

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.
