Congratulations! You have chosen one of the hardiest floribunda roses available. It's perfect for your gardening region.

Roses need a minimum of 6 hours of sunlight per day and will really thrive in 8 or more hours of sun so plant yours in a sunny garden spot. They also like light, well drained soil. The soil around their roots should be kept loose by cultivating often. This brings necessary oxygen to the roots of the plants. They also like to be fed a good organic fertilizer regularly and mulched around the base of the plant to help keep the roots cool in the heat of summer and warm in winter.

Enjoy your new rose!
