This tough, tidy Shrub Rose blooms abundantly from June until the first real frost. Its clusters of small, single flowers change subtly from cherry to bright red as the mercury dips, while the leaves change from green to purplish green. Disease and drought resistant, it has delicately scented blooms that measure up to 3in across. Winner of the coveted All-America Rose Selections award. Own-root. 'Radrazz' PP 11,836
The virtues of rugged and heavy blooming Shrub Roses are so pronounced they have been given the name “Landscape Roses.” What is meant, of course, is that each is of such indomitable character it will thrive virtually unattended. Use multiples of the same variety to create superb hedges, ground covers, or foundation plantings, or give individual plants the prominent place they deserve in a mixed border. Provide six hours or more of direct sun per day and a fertile, reasonably moist soil.
Tip: We use Organic Gem® as a foliar feed on Rose bushes in our trial garden and find plants are healthier and perform better throughout the season.
