Plant near a walkway. Stop for a moment, take in the intoxicating fragrance! Snip a few blooms for a small bouquet to bring inside or adorn a patio table.
Roses can be used in many ways, including mixed perennial beds. Given it's more rounded form, they contrast well with upright forms, such as Shasta Daisies, Perovskia, or Coneflowers. Consider combining with silver foliage plants such as Artemisia Powis Castle or Silver Mound or combine with a blue foliage narrow leaf Festuca groundcover.
Consider planting in drifts of 5, 7 or more or use as a low growing hedge. Consider planting near the base of a climbing rose or another climbing vine, such as Clematis. Combine with other shrubs such as blue flowering Caryopteris or a Knock Out Rose. Add a vertical lift with Calamagrostis Karl Foerster.

Soil: Prefers medium moisture, slightly acidic, well-drained garden loam. Roses benefit from the addition of compost, aged manure, or leafmold to the planting soil.
Light: At least 5 - 6 hours of direct sun per day is preferred.
Water: One inch of water per week throughout their first growing season. A generous layer of organic mulch (compost or composted manure) helps keep the soil evenly moist. If weather is dry in the fall, be sure to water roses well. Never allow the foliage to remain wet into the evening; water early in the day.
Spacing: 18 - 36 Inches
Fertilizing: To keep the flowers coming, feed your roses with a fertilizer blended especially for roses. This should be done after each bloom cycle.
Winterizing: If you live near a rose's cold limit, and you garden on an exposed site or in an area where rapid temperature fluctuations are common, you should mound two shovelfuls of composted manure, garden soil, compost, or shredded leaves over the base of the plant in late fall after the ground freezes. Covering these mounds and the lower parts of the bushes with evergreen boughs will add protection. Pull the mounding material away from the stem as new growth emerges in spring. Prune branches injured over winter when new buds emerge in spring.
Maintenance & Pruning: Cleaning up old foliage is important for disease control. Prune to remove deadwood, to control or direct growth, and to promote flowering. Wait until growth breaks from the canes in early spring before pruning. Deadwood can be removed at any time. There is no need to remove faded flowers because these roses are self cleaning.
