So you have a yard. Now what?
It’s effortless to use Easy Elegance roses for a fresh eye catching display. A low front border in front of evergreens or a taller hedge planting behind a perennial garden will draw anyone’s attention. How about making it really simple and plant your favorite roses in your favorite containers, and then setting them around for a single focal point? Personally I want life to be a "bed of roses," so that is what I did...my favorite colors are mixed and planted in a very visible location that I can see, smell, touch and enjoy daily.
Old Man Winter's arrival is late for most of the United States, but it's inevitable. So now what do we do with our roses? Since you're so smart and planted Easy Elegance® Roses, the answer is pretty simple. It's not like the old days when you had to tip the roses or cover them with cones, thank goodness! These rose shrubs were bred specifically to withstand Zone 4 winters with little to no protection. In fact, the Better Homes & Gardens Test Garden - in Zone 5 - doesn't use ANY protection to give a real hardiness test, and Easy Elegance® Roses are consistently at the top of the list. All that you've got to do is give a layer of mulch, leaves or straw around the base of the shrub to give some protection in case you get a cold snap with no snow cover to provide insulation. That's it! There are a few more tips and tricks on the Planting & Care section of our site. Click here to get the extra details and help your roses come back beautiful and blooming next year!
IF YOU PLANTED THIS YEAR: If you just planted your Easy Elegance® Rose this year, give it a little extra winter protection since it's probably not fully established in the ground. Pile those leaves or mulch up a few extra inches to be extra safe.
