Weave them through Butterfly Gardens, and include them near Victory Gardens. There aren't many plants that produce so many nectar-rich blooms over the long growing season.

Perhaps you need to spice up the look of your foundation or patio plantings. What better choice, either in the ground or growing as "Thrillers" in sleek outdoor containers?

This treatment really shines on the south side of mature evergreen trees. Run a drift of Lemon Zest in a new mulched bed.

#ProPlantTips for Care

Plant Oso Easy Lemon Zest Rose in a place with plenty of full sun and air circulation. They need at least six hours of direct light a day for strong stems and the best flower power.

Provide a moderate amount of water on a regular basis. Maximize the performance with Nature Hills Root Booster during planting, then mulch to a depth of three inches...pulling it back away from the stems.

Container grown plants need well-drained soil and a careful schedule of water. Try drip irrigation systems to make things very easy on yourself.

Rake and bag all fallen foliage in late fall. Prune in early spring down to eight inches, and fertilize at that time per the directions.

Don't be shy about taking blooms for indoor arrangements during the season. They'll make long-lasting blooms in the vase, and are a lovely hostess gift.

Order plenty of Oso Easy Lemon Zest Rose from the expert growers at Nature Hills. You'll cherish these fragrant, fun and flirty blooms for many years!
