Botanical Name: rosa x hybrid; Family: Rosaceae (Rose Family)
Height: 3 - 4 feet.
Spacing: 2 - 3 feet.
Depth: Soak the bareroot in water for about an hour. As a rule of thumb, dig the hole about 1 1/2 times as deep and 1 1/2 times as wide as the root system is long. Mound a small pile of soil in the center of the hole as a support for the rose's root crown.
Spread: 2 - 3 feet.
Sun/Shade: Full sun to partial shade.
Color: Creamy-white, strawberry-red bi-color blossoms.
Foliage: Glossy green foliage.
Form: Tea rose.
Flower Form: 12 - 18 inch stem . Fruity fragrance.
Soil Requirements: Well-drained, sandy loam soil.
Growth Rate: Moderate growth rate.
Pruning: Since rose bushes like to send out a strong lateral cane at the node just below a pruning cut, try to make pruning cuts about 1/4 inch above an "outward" facing leaf bud. By doing this and removing plant material from the center of the bush you will create a more open vase-shaped plant less susceptible to disease. Remove spent flowers to encourage rebloom.
Size: 5 1/2 inch blossoms. 35 - 45 petals.
Comments: Mix peat moss, compost, or well-rotted manure into the soil. Mound the soil in the center of the hole, spread roots over mound; add half the soil and compact it down; complete the filling, compact soil and water well. Feed monthly with rose food until late Summer. Water once weekly when rainfall is scarce. Remove spent blossoms, weak growth and suckers. Spray or dust bi-weekly for insects and disease. Mulch heavily around the base and cover rest of plant with straw or shredded leaves. Hold in place with burlap or chicken wire. Restricted States: AE, AK, GU, HI, PR.
