Design IdeasIdeal to integrate into shrub or mixed borders for solid long-season color without additional care. Makes a fine addition to south and east facing foundation beds. Great plant to cover up discolored fence bottoms. Use in the back of perennial borders to intensify season-long color. Plant in masses or quantities in irregular groups for a large scale groundcover that blocks weeds. Use in pairs to flank an entry, steps or gate. Excellent semiformal frame for garden art or upstanding fountains. Linear applications make a low, semiformal hedge or to clean up unattractive paving edges around porches and patios.
Care Information
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Feed regularly during the growing season with a general purpose fertilizer. Prune annually in late winter to promote vigorous new growth.

History:
This superior new hybrid is of course a member of the Rosaceae family. The signature genus Rosa was classified by Linnaeus in the 18th century and today contains over one hundred species, all originating in the Northern Hemisphere. From the wild species there have evolved thousands of hybrids and forms with many branches in the ancestral tree. Today's repeat blooming roses derive their remondant characteristics from the China tea roses and hybrid perpetuals. This contemporary hybrid was bred in the United States by William J. Radler, and introduced by Conard-Pyle Co., offered by Monrovia in 2005.
Lore:
Roses were so coveted in ancient Rome that species were brought there from all over the Empire to cultivate for fragrance and beauty.
