Grandiflora Roses need full sun and good air circulation to do their best, and tree-form Roses need protection from the worst winters chill and summer's extreme heat. Please provide a location with the morning sun to dry their leaves and only water at the root zone, 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.
Site selection is important for Roses, and we always recommend Nature Hills Root Booster when planting to get your Roses off to the best start. Add a 3 to 4-inch layer of mulch over the root system, and plan to reapply in spring. Over time, the mulch will break down to improve your soil!
Early each spring, after the last frost of the year has passed, it's always a good idea to prune back the Rose tree several inches to maintain the nice round form atop its trunk. Keep new blooms returning with occasional deadheading, quickly improving your overall display.
Prune away suckers and branching that forms at the base or on the trunk each year too. Pruning Roses allows for better, bushier growth each year. Pruning Roses allows for better, bushier growth each year and stimulates new growth.

Rose bushes 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.
