Finally, a fragrant, disease-resistant rose! Everyone loves disease-resistant roses, but misses the classic rose fragrance they’ve never been able to provide. At Last® rose changes all that by offering lush, full flowers with a true rose scent. Its romantic apricot-peach blooms are self-cleaning! So, they’ll appear continuously throughout the summer without deadheading. After the petals drop, star-shaped sepals are left behind. Not detracting from the show at all. Glossy, deep green foliage stays free of black spot and powdery mildew thanks to its reliable disease resistance.

Why grow At Last® Rose?

  • Interesting peachy apricot coloring
  • Self cleaning blooms, no need to deadhead
  • Resistant to common problems


Light: Thrives in full sun. When planted in an area that gets less than six hours of direct sun each day, it will not flower as prolifically.

Soil: Prefers moist soil that drains easily. Any period of extended sogginess will not be tolerated. In terms of pH, it prefers either neutral or acidic soils over basic soils.

Water: Average water needs. Be sure to water from below when possible.

Fertilizing: Apply a granular rose fertilizer in late winter/early spring when the soil is workable and again in late spring to give the plant a boost for rebloom.

Pruning: Pruning is recommended in early spring. Remove weak branches in the middle and about 1/3 of the height and width. Make cuts just about 1/4 of an inch above a bud. Dead or damaged wood can be removed at any time, just cut back to a set of leaves.
