Planting and Application:

There are many different ways to include these versatile little cuties in your landscape!

Try Sunsprite massed in a gentle curve around a special statue to draw your eye. Plant them in a sweet little row along your front walk. These would look "spic and span" as a straight hedge along a white picket fence. Dress them up or down, this Rose easily creates a bridge between elegance and charm! Modern urban courtyards or formal garden beds or flouncy and free-form cottage gardens, all easily make this Floribunda feel right at home!

Make that hot color pop against smaller pink, purple, and blue flowers and blue-toned foliage plants. Yellow Roses make a fantastic display against houses painted white, gray, taupe, brown or clad in stone facing.

Tall enough to be a formidable barrier, line your property edges with thorned shrubs that will make intruders think twice before crossing. But with such lovely green foliage and vivid blooms, everyone will enjoy the view! Back of the border hedges to highlight other plants and shrubs, or brighten an existing Rose garden with these bright sunspots!

Greet your guests with a pair planted on either side of your front entry or a pair astride the entrance to your backyard pathways. Use them as "thrillers" in sleek, tall resin Containers. Place potted Sunsprites along a sunny patio or line your driveway with these vivid blossoms.

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Roses bloom their very best in the full sun, favoring the morning sunlight to dry the leaves of dew. Preferring at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. For the healthiest shrub possible, plant your Sunsprite into well-drained soil that’s highly enriched. Be sure to provide consistent, but moderate soil moisture throughout the entire growing season. These Floribunda Roses have natural disease resistance but do even better when planted in an area with good air circulation.

A generous layer of mulch helps retain soil moisture as well as insulate the root system from heat and chill. Add Nature Hills Root Booster while planting for a life-long symbiotic relationship with the tiny feeder roots.

Low maintenance and easy care, this bright gem only needs annual pruning in the very early spring before your Rose gets growing. Prune back to about 6-8 inches for a full flush of renewed growth, or just remove old canes to maintain the shrub’s vigorous growth.

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.
