Color: purple
Bloom time: June to September
Height: 0.50 to 0.75 feet
Difficulty level: easy to grow

Planting & Care
Have a hose or bucket of water and all your planting tools nearby. Keep your bare-root rose in water until you are ready to place it in the ground.Plants can be cut back and moved in either spring or fall, but not in midsummer, as they might suffer and die in the heat.

Sunlight: Full sun to part shade

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: Medium to wet

Temprature: 60 degrees

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:
  • Every leaf has a growth bud, so removing old flower blossoms encourages the plant to make more flowers instead of using the energy to make seeds.
  • Clean away from around the base of the rosebushes any trimmed debris that can harbor disease and insects.
  • Late in the season, stop deadheading rugosas so that hips will form on the plants.


Special Feature:
Excellent annual flowering plant for areas where it is not winter hardy (MBG Plant of Merit). For USDA Zones 8-10, it may be effectively grown in bog gardens, as a pond marginal, and in beds and borders, but can be significantly invasive in areas such as the State of Florida where it is has been declared to be a Category 1 invasive species.
Use
Ornamental use:
  • The plant is used for ornamental purpose.


Note:
No serious insect or disease problems. Once established in the wild, plants are very difficult to eradicate. Plants may spread invasively by self-seeding and by rhizomes.
