|i read your response to when roses should be trimmed (early spring 18|
|Landscape roses such as the Carefree series usually don't require pruning. You can certainly prune to keep them shaped and mid-sized, though. The best time to prune them is in February/March - when the forsythia blooms. If your Carefree rose is overgrown though, it's okay to shorten the long canes now.
