Effortlessly floriferous!

Oso Easy Peasy® is one of our newest roses, but it has already been decorated with a prestigious Award of Excellence in the No Spray division from the American Rose Society. It's just that good! Its apple-green foliage resists powdery mildew and black spot, and its abundant magenta flowers appear in endless profusion from early summer through frost. The size and scale of this rose and its blooms is perfect for incorporating into flower gardens - not just because it's so beautiful, but because it's so easy to care for that it frees you up to work on other tasks (or, better yet, just relax and enjoy the show!).

 Top reasons to grow Oso Easy Peasy® rose:

  • Awarded by America's top rose organization for its disease resistance
  • Deep pink flowers appear in clusters for months each year.
  • No deadheading needed to keep flowers coming all summer.

Uses Notes:

This versatile, floriferous rose can be grown on its own, as a hedge, or in a garden among other perennials, shrubs, or roses for an easy care display of consistent color.

Maintenance Notes:

This rose does not need deadheading (i.e., there's no need to remove old flowers) in order to keep blooming. As for pruning, it's a good idea to cut the whole plant back by about half to one-third its total height in early spring - this removes any thinner buds at the top of the plant, ensuring that the growth for the year comes from the thicker buds further down the stems. Don't sweat it too much - just cut back the stems above where a nice, big bud is emerging.

Though this rose has proven itself resistant to powdery mildew and black spot, proper care and siting is important. Plant where it will get at least six - and ideally, eight or more - hours of bright sun each day. Avoid wetting the leaves when you water, or if you have a sprinkler system, adjust the head so that it waters the soil rather than the plant.
