The Sunset Happy Trails™ Rose is a Groundcover Rose that spreads and fills fast for a fun, bushy, and colorful garden bed.

These flower clusters shine against forest green foliage! While you can expect some color change, these Roses resist spotting and fading no matter how much sun they're planted in! The open blooms resemble landing pads for pollinators that will adore these nectar and pollen-rich blossoms as much as you will! While its bountiful blooms will brighten your days, the Sunset Happy Trails™ Rose's fruity fragrance will also boost your mood.

It grows in a trailing, spreading habit and holds cup-shaped, decorative double blooms. How fun to see these colorful flowers from late spring through to fall! Hardy in USDA growing zones 6 to 9, these modern Rose bushes are so easy to grow and completely fuss-free! As a cultivar developed in 2016 by Christian Bedard, this modern yellow Rose offers superior disease and pest resistance!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Groundcover Roses do prefer full sun and quick-draining, but rich, moist soil. Provide a site with good air circulation for best results with a 3-4 inch thick layer of mulch as top-dressing year-round. Water regularly, but once established, these Roses can be a bit drought tolerant. Prune in the very early spring, before you see new growth. This gives your shrub a fresh flush of new growth each spring while maintaining a neat, tidy shape.

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 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.
