Favorite or New Plant
If you have room for only one bush and can't decide upon color, consider this floribunda. Named in honor of renowned glass artist Dale Chihuly, blooms provide a changing blend of colors, from apricot/yellow to vivid orange/red against deep glossy green foliage. Medium-sized blooms have 25 to 30 petals with a mild tea fragrance.
Clever Gardening Technique
Deadhead Roses Effectively
When removing spent rose blooms, clip as small a length of stem as possible, leaving as much foliage as possible. Extra foliage both shades the canes from sunburn and helps the plant photosynthesize to provide nutrients to the bush.
