Enjoy the rich, classic fragrance of Roses on a carefree, disease- and pest-resistant plant. This Shrub Rose has a tough constitution and improved resistance to black spot and powdery mildew. It offers up plenty of double blossoms in a vibrant shade of purple-red (Purple Prince) or Pink (First Lady). The blooms come in flushes over a long season, no deadheading required. The plants have a bushy, upright and sometimes semi-weeping habit. They reach 3-4’ at maturity, making them ideal for low hedges, spots at the edge of a mixed border, and containers.
The world of Roses has been changing, and there are colors, perfumes, forms, and habits for every garden situation. Dedicated Rose breeders have continued the mysterious process and long-term commitment it takes to combine the best attributes of different varieties into new forms that simply did not exist 25 years ago. The basic needs of Roses, however, have not changed. Give them 6 hours or more of direct sun per day and fertile, reasonably moist soil.
