A seedling of Double Knock Out® rose, this cold-hardy variety has excellent disease resistance. It is a floriferous, easy to grow rose that maintains a nice rounded habit. It produces abundant bright red, doubled blooms with orange undertones.
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.
Other: It can be used as a cut flower! For its longest vase life, cut vertically up the stem about 2?. This will help it absorb more water.
