Rosa – Oso Easy® Paprika
Dead-Heading Not Necessary
Oso Easy® roses are highly disease resistant. For best results, plant only in full sun (at least 6 hours daily) and ensure good air circulation by spacing plants properly. Landscape roses like the Oso Easy® series don't need any special kind of pruning: simply cut them back by about one-half their total height each early spring. This ensures that the new growth for the year comes from the bigger, healthier buds lower on the plant.
If desired, apply a granular fertilizer formulated for woody plants (like a rose fertilizer) in early spring, just as the ground has thawed. Deadheading is not recommended or required.
Perfect for mixed borders and beds. It is small enough to plant near walkways and other tight spots. If grown as a container plant, plant in the ground in fall.
