The Q&A Archives: Pruning Floribunda Rose

Question: How and when do I prune a floribunda rose?

Answer: The best time to prune your rose is in early spring, before the warm weather arrives. Floribundas grow more vigorously than hybrid teas and produce many new canes and stems each year. They have a tendency to be dense growers and some people use them as hedges. Cut back the previous season's growth by about one-fourth and leave as many of the strong canes and stems as possible. You'll be rewarded with many small blossoms over a long season.
