Normally when I grow roses, I look for the traditional full flowers that have a beautiful scent. And this plant has neither of those.
So why is it on my best new shrubs list for 2020?
To encourage a bushier rose bush, cut the plant back by about half in the early spring.
I just couldn’t resist those flower colors. They start out yellow with a red center. Then fade to white with a pink center.
Add in the fact that this plant is disease resistant, blooms continuously all summer and doesn’t require deadheading, and it’s a pretty perfect rose plant. (Yes, you read that right, you don’t have to cut off the spent flowers for it to keep blooming!)
