    Maintenance Notes: 

    Blooms early summer to frost. Likes well drained, moist soil but is tolerant of most soil conditions. Moderate to fast growth habit. This rose does not need to be sprayed like many other rose varieties. This variety is not suitable for small gardens. It is a landscaping rose for covering large areas. Fertilization will help increase blooming. Apply a controlled release fertilizer in early spring. Pruning is usually not needed, but may be trimmed in spring.

    Looking for a rose that's a bit of a rebel?  Check out Oso Easy Fragrant Spreader: no spraying, no deadheading, and tons of fragrant pink flowers all season long. 

    The plant will spread out to almost five feet across, making it ideal for covering large areas such as banks and slopes. This rose does not need to be sprayed like many other rose varieties, and does not need pruning.

    This river of fragrance will impress you for weeks! Fragrant Spreader's soft pink, single flowers are abundant and highly fragrant. The plant will spread out to almost five feet across, making it ideal for covering large areas. It's perfect for banks and slopes. This rose does not need to be sprayed like many other rose varieties, and does not need pruning.

    The glossy green foliage remains free of disease, and complements the bright flower color.

    • Does well for me in 2 Vermont locations. I've had for 3 years, and it keeps getting bigger & better. Keeps blooms through most of the summer. Love it!

      Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.
    • I purchased this because I needed something for erosion control on a slope. I've had it about 9 months with very little growth. I keep waiting for that described heighth and width. I know it is a new plant but very, very few blooms.

    • This plant grew like crazy the first year. When March came and the snows melted this plant was green with leaves and buds. This is a great ground cover.
