This versatile, floriferous rose can be grown on its own, as a hedge, or in a garden among other perennials, shrubs, or roses for an easy care display of consistent color.
This rose does not need deadheading (i.e., there's no need to remove old flowers) in order to keep blooming. As for pruning, it's a good idea to cut the whole plant back by about half to one-third its total height in early spring - this removes any thinner buds at the top of the plant, ensuring that the growth for the year comes from the thicker buds further down the stems. Don't sweat it too much - just cut back the stems above where a nice, big bud is emerging.
Though this rose has proven itself resistant to powdery mildew and black spot, proper care and siting is important. Plant where it will get at least six - and ideally, eight or more - hours of bright sun each day. Avoid wetting the leaves when you water, or if you have a sprinkler system, adjust the head so that it waters the soil rather than the plant.
