Planting and Application:

Weave Lemon Zest® throughout Butterfly or Cut Flower Gardens, and include them near Victory Gardens. There aren't many plants that produce so many nectar-rich blooms over the long growing season! Get a picture-perfect yard with the help of these vibrant Roses. Place them 18 inches apart for a showy flowering hedge that charms everyone who passes by.

Call them the modern version of the white picket fence. At once classic and contemporary, Lemon Zest® Roses can fill a wide, open area with bold color and sweet scent. You'll turn a bland corner into a spectacular garden feature! Simply place them in saturated sunlight and mass them to add eye-catching professional polish.

This upright Rose can be effectively grown in the ground or in containers. 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 juicy free-flowering shrub really shines on the south side of mature evergreen trees! Run a drift of Lemon Zest® in a new mulched bed. Keep the lines straight, or create a flowing, organically inspired free-form planting bed. There is something about bold yellow offset by crisp evergreens - it’s like a match made in Heaven!

Yellow mixes so well with other hues from scarlet to pink. It's an exceptional contrast for purple and blue-toned blooms and is a knockout companion with white flowering perennials and shrubs.

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Plant Oso Easy® Lemon Zest® Landscaping 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 3-4 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. Want more info about pruning Roses, about winterizing Roses, and un-wintering Roses in spring? Check out Nature Hills #ProPlantTips Garden Blog!

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.
