#ProPlantTips for Care:

Add black-tie formal blooms to any part of your garden without the formal care and fuss. Hybrid Tea Roses need full sun, where they will bask in at least six hours of sunlight a day for best flowering, and have good air circulation! Provide a location with the morning sun to dry their leaves and only water at the root zone. Plant in deep, organically enriched, fertile soil that is well-drained - never soggy. Water regularly, especially throughout the hot summer months. Prune Roses in early spring just as you begin to see buds swell. Learn more about winterizing, and un-wintering your Roses in our Garden Blog, plus all the tips and tricks you need when pruning your new prized Rose bush!

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.
