Beautiful? Yes. High maintenance? Not always. Our editors have put together a list of easy to grow roses.
Noisette roses bloom in the spring and fall, and sporadically throughout the summer with no spraying and minimal pruning. Deadheading (removing spent flowers) after spring bloom will promote somewhat heavier fall blooming, but almost all Noisettes will bloom very nicely in the fall with no deadheading.
They need at least six hours of direct sun in well-drained soil. Water once a week during growing season, soaking the root zone with about 1 inch of water. It's a good idea to apply a slow-release fertilizer (such as Mills Magic Rose Mix) at pruning times (usually February and August). You can also apply a liquid fertilizer (such as alfalfa tea or fish emulsion) every two weeks when rose is blooming heavily, but do not feed the plants after October.
