Beautiful? Yes. High maintenance? Not always. Our editors have put together a list of easy to grow roses.
Rose Care Basics
- Plant in full sun. The more sun your rose gets, the more flowers you'll get.
- Roses prefer fertile, well-drained soil that contains lots of organic matter, such as sphagnum peat moss, garden compost, ground bark, chopped leaves, and composted manure. Organic matter is especially important in sand or clay soils.
- Water roses deeply once a week, thoroughly soaking the soil. Do not wet the foliage.
