Answer: Oklahoma is a popular red flowered hybrid tea rose, and its care follows the standards for hybrid tea roses. In general it needs rich moist yet well drained soil well prepared with ample organic matter, regular fertilization, a good layer of mulch, regular watering, and possibly some occasional measures to deal with mildew. It should be pruned hard annually in late winter or early spring and should be deadheaded throughout the season. For more detailed information including pruning instructions with clear diagrams, you might consider consulting a good book on basic rose care. One I particularly like is Roses for Dummies by Lance Walheim, ISBN 0-7645-5031-4. Good luck with your Oklahoma -- it is a beautiful rose!
