Cold-hardy, everblooming Tree Rose! The Polar Joy™ Rose Tree (Rosa 'Balore') is a hardy tree Rose variety. This introduction from Bailey Nursery's award-winning Rose breeding program was developed particularly for the northern gardeners! Unlike other Tree Roses which are actually 2 or 3 different Roses grafted or budded together (the root, the stem, and the top), Polar Joy™ is the same hardy Rose from top to bottom, giving it unmatched hardiness!
Your Polar Joy™ is a hardy Shrub Rose variety that has been expertly grafted and trained into a tree form. This combination gives you a spectacularly beautiful rose tree that will not only bloom all summer for you but also survive harsh conditions. You'll adore the beautiful clusters of soft pink blossoms.
Each delicate, 2-inch bloom is lightly kissed by a soft, yellow center and emits a subtle, clean fragrance that will pull you in close to sample its charms. Combined with its light green foliage, your Polar Joy™ gives the impression of spring apple blossoms in your yard, only these fabulous blooms last all summer long. Hardy and disease-resistant throughout USDA chilly zone 4 to 7, these are fantastic ornamental flowering accents that are sure to please!
A wonderful spectacle elevated to high-end décor, Polar Joy™ Rose Trees shine in the sun with their flouncy flowers that ruffle in the breeze! Pot up in large planters and porch containers for a lovely conversation piece that won't take up much room, yet have a huge impact on your landscape, even if you don't have a yard at all! You and your pollinators will be delighted by these blooms that appear all growing season!
Fantastic as front yard and front porch décor and living sculptures, one or a matched pair would add curb appeal and high-end blooms to your entry! Polar Joy™ will look outstanding in your Cottage border, perennial bed, or Rose garden this year. It would be especially attractive as a vertical accent among low-growing roses and/or perennials.
Polar Joy™ Rose Tree has excellent disease resistance and flowers best in full sun - especially morning sun and air circulation. 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. In early spring and mid-summer, apply a slow-release fertilizer for flowering plants.
Some winter protection for Tree Form Roses is suggested for the cooler zones by overwintering your Rose in an unheated garage after it goes dormant, or outside with a straw and burlap wrap. Then in spring, take it back out or unwrap it and trim the head back to about a 1-2 foot sphere just as it begins to grow again in spring.
Early each spring, after the last frost of the year has passed, it's always a good idea to prune back the Rose tree several inches to maintain the nice round form atop its trunk. Keep new blooms returning with occasional deadheading, quickly improving your overall display.
Prune away suckers and branching that forms at the base or on the trunk each year too. Pruning Roses allow for better, bushier growth each year and stimulates new growth.

Roses 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.
