Soil: Not finicky about soil, as long as it is well drained. Doesn't tolerate extremely wet or extremely dry conditions.
Light: Full sun (6+ hrs/day) to part shade/filtered light.
Space: min 2' apart.
Fertilizing: Little needed. Apply a granular rose fertilizer in early spring if desired..
Winterizing: A good 2-3" layer of mulch is recommended.
Maintenance: In early spring, when new growth begins, cut out any dead portions. Plant may be sheared by half or more to encourage new growth. Once mature, remove a few of the oldest stems each year to encourage robust new growth. If the weather gets very hot in summer, plants may take a break from blooming and/or have less intensely colorful blooms, but performance will resume when conditions improve.
