OSO EASY ITALIAN ICE® Rose

Zone: 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 Exposure: Full Sun Height: 1.5-2.5' Width/Spread: 1.5-2.5'

High performance color! We know we’re not supposed to play favorites with our 300+ shrub varieties, but with Oso Easy Italian Ice rose, it’s hard not to. Big, full blooms sport a lush saturated pink on the outer petals, transitioning to a soft yellow inside. It blooms all summer without deadheading, and you’ll find the color becomes even more intense in autumn. Easy care disease-resistant foliage makes it as easy to care for as it is to love.

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 inches. This will help it absorb more water.
