The non-stop blooms of Home Run® Shrub Rose (Rosa 'Wekcisbako') are flame-red and covered in bright color all growing season! This rounded, bushy, fast-to-flower Shrub Rose hits a "Grand Slam" in the landscape! These single blooms more than makeup for having fewer petals by pumping out volumes of incredible color! Fully open blooms are highlighted by a golden eye and white ring that acts as a bullseye for bees and butterflies!

Growing only 2-3 feet in height and width and filling out in lush green foliage, these wonderfully rounded shrubs that are lightly fragrant compact Rose can fit into almost any sized garden! The dark-green foliage provides a great contrast background to the vibrant flowers that zest up your bouquets and floral arrangements!

Home Run® is an offspring of the famous Knock Out® Rose and produces a richer-red bloom. It also has a phenomenal fortitude against the dreaded Rose disease black spot, and it is also completely resistant to powdery mildew and much higher level of tolerance to downy mildew. It is nearly always in bloom and one of the most disease-free shrub Roses available.

Planting and Application:

Fantastic Landscape Shrub Roses are perfect in pollinator gardens and perfect for adding pops of color to foundation plantings and as facer plants in front of leggier shrubs and trees. Low enough growing to be almost groundcover and edging plants and brighten beds and borders!

Perfect space-saving container Roses, these bright and cheerful blooms create rounded thrillers and fillers in pots and planters! Any sunny porch and patio, balcony, and terrace become beacons of vivid color! Brighten a cut flower garden, set your driveway apart from the rest with a mailbox planting, or line pathways and your driveway with these bright blooms! Imagine a sea of red Roses as a mass planting that turns heads and turns a bland stretch of land into some major curb appeal!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Home Run® needs little care. It can be trimmed to shape in the spring. This Rose does not need deadheading or winter protection throughout USDA growing zones 5 to 9! Shrub Roses need full sun and good air circulation to do their best. Provide moderate moisture regularly throughout the heat of summer. Plant in enriched, highly organic, and fertile soil that is well-drained and well-mulched to hold in moisture. Water regularly, especially throughout the hot summer months! Prune Roses back in early spring, just as they barely emerge from dormancy. Prune your Champlain Rose in early spring, and you will want to deadhead spent blossoms for better flower production.

Rose Bush FAQs

Where Is The Best Place To Plant Rose Bushes?

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.

What Is The Best Month to Plant Roses?

You can plant Roses any time if you can 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.
