For a cool and fun pastel feel in the garden this summer, you need to plant Oso Easy® Italian Ice® Rose (Rosa OSO EASY 'ChewNiceBell'). This gorgeous and flirty bi-color Rose blooms in a soft buttery yellow that melts into blushing pink margins! If you are a rosarian you'll notice how much it looks like the classic Peace Rose - a Rose garden staple for many years!
Italian Ice® not only blooms from late spring through until fall without stopping, but it is also self-cleaning, so it never needs dead-heading to maintain its crisp, clean look! Combine that with strong disease resistance, an abundance of flowers all season long and a nice, bushy habit and you have a stellar shrub for your home garden!
As soft and luscious as this Rose looks, it is tough and carefree! Requiring very little of the fuss and fluff that many Roses need! Cold and heat-tolerant throughout USDA growing zones 4 through 9, Oso Easy® Roses are aptly named for their ease of care for sure!
These pretty Shrub Roses will suit traditional, rustic, contemporary, and ultra-modern homes with ease. They make beautiful hedges to greet your guests. You'll appreciate the elegance of a tightly controlled, formal rectangular planting. And of course, with this modern selection, you won't have much work to do! Take this idea and run with it to create a streamlined series of long, narrow planting boxes throughout your landscape. You'll instantly gain a memorable focal point.
For a continuous low hedge, plant them between two to three feet apart on center. Try planting these in large drifts along a fence or as a hedge by a walkway. You'll measure from the center of one to the center of the next. Want faster results? Place them closer together!
Renting? No Problem! They are excellent performers in large containers on a sunny patio or on pool decks, patios, balconies, and porches that bake in full sun all day. If you have a tough spot, try these durable, easy-care landscape Roses.
Of course, you'll be tempted to add them to your shrub borders. Place them on the south side of mature evergreens. Or, repeat them as a lovely backdrop to smaller perennials. Get ready to see butterflies! They'll flock to the nectar, and come back for more again and again. Why not add their fun to your Butterfly Garden or include their fun two-tone blooms in a Cut Flower border?
Just make sure they are someplace where you can admire their beauty up close! Keep these flirty little shrubs by your favorite chair and reading nook where Italian Ice® is sure to brighten your morning cuppa or help you relax in your Meditation nook!
Give Oso Easy® new modern Rose bushes good air circulation and plenty of sunshine, at least 6 hours of direct sun per day. This shrub rose grows best in slightly acidic, well-drained soil. Roses appreciate plenty of Rose food to keep them blooming. Give them a slow-release fertilizer in early spring and mid-summer to support all those pretty blooms.
Apply a medium amount of even moisture to keep the soil moist, but not wet. Use a three-inch layer of mulch over the root system to keep it nice and cool. This is especially true of container-grown plants or those in raised beds. Cut down on your maintenance by installing an automatic drip irrigation system. It's easy, and the results are well worth it!
Rarely in need of pruning, wait until early spring to prune back last year's growth down to 12 inches. Remove any broken, crossing, or winter-damaged branches.

These are destined to be a new garden classic, but don't wait until then. Be on the crest of the trend and order your own Oso Easy® Italian Ice® Rose today from NatureHills.com!
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.
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.
