any average, well-drained soil will do. Avoid spots that are wet or soggy, even if that only happens occasionally


Roses have average water needs. Though they can tolerate some dry weather after they’ve been growing a few years, they will flower best, and the flowers will last the longest, with regular watering.


One application of granular (not liquid) rose fertilizer in early spring is sufficient, but if you wish, you may fertilize your Reminiscent rose monthly from early spring through late July.


Prune in early spring, just when the new growth starts to emerge. This makes the decision process easy, because you just make your cuts above where a large, healthy bud is emerge. Roses don’t strictly need pruning, but they have a nicer, denser habit and flower much more if they are pruned.


Climbing roses don’t actually climb, like ivy or true vines – they need your help to get growing in the direction you want. To help them, use heavy garden twine or wire to secure them to the structure you are trying to cover. Once the basic framework for covering your desired has been established, do not cut into the thick branches that comprise it. Instead, focus on shortening the branches that come off those main stems to create new growth and lush, full coverage.

Other things to know about growing Rise Up roses: 


Deadheading, the process of removing the old flower heads as they age, is not necessary, but you can cut off the old blooms if you wish. The petals fall off naturally.

Cut Stems:

Cut stems to enjoy indoors if you’d like – the plant will replace them with fresh growth and flowers within a few weeks.

Disease Resistance

To maximize the disease resistance of Reminiscent roses, make sure your plant gets six hours of bright sunlight each day, allow at least 2’ on all sides of the rose from structures and other plants, and avoid wetting the foliage when you water.
