Prune annually in late winter to promote vigorous new growth.
HISTORY
Lore Long before they were appreciated as beautiful flowers, roses were treasured for their scent. Oils in this plant were long considered medicinal and were used in cosmetics. Romans gathered roses from the western world for cultivation in Europe which later contributed to the monasteries where the first herbals of medicinal rose use were translated from Greek and Arabic.
