Plant Roses in full sun for the most blooms, but these also bloom wonderfully in partial shade. This Groundcover Rose is very low maintenance and disease-resistant! It will tolerate a wide range of soils and climates. Provide moderate and consistent moisture throughout the growing season and regular fertilizer. They are drought-tolerant when established but can also withstand moist soils, as long as the drainage is good.
Deadheading encourages re-blooming. Fertilize with Dr. Earth's Life Organic and Natural All-Purpose Fertilizer in the spring. Wait until early spring to prune back last year's growth down to 12 inches. Remove any broken, crossing, or winter-damaged branches.

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.
