Of course every flower has it's attributes, but OSO Pink Cup Cake really stands out. What she lacks in fragrance, she makes up in so many ways. The large coral pink blossoms cover the plant almost continually until hard frost and contrast nicely with the burgundy & dark green leaves. Of the two dozen rose bushes/vines I grow, this one has been the most disease and bug resistance of them all! We live in Zone 5B Michigan, where she is in full sun.
The optimum amount of sun or shade each plant needs to thrive: Full Sun (6+ hours), Part Sun (4-6 hours), Full Shade (up to 4 hours).
This plant is hardy in zones 4 - 9
Zones are based on the lowest average temperature an area is expected to receive during the winter. They are used to determine whether a plant is likely to be perennial in your area. If your zone is equal to or higher than the zone listed for the plant, it will be hardy for you and thrive in your climate.

Landscapes, containersMaintenance Notes:
Prefers moist, well-drained soils. Pruning is generally not needed, but may be shaped in spring. Spraying is not needed.
Like other Oso Easy roses, Pink Cupcake rebels against the idea of roses being difficult to grow. No spraying is needed on this disease resistant variety, and it blooms all season without deadheading.
It's a delicious shade of pink, with a touch of coral to keep it from being too sweet. Large flowers pop against the glossy green leaves. The clean, disease-resisant foliage has reddish new growth. Look for up to 20 petals on each flower of this floriferous, disease-resistant rose.Oso Easy® Pink Cupcake Rosa x 'Chewallbell' USPP 26,817, Can 5,129

This little rose bush is amazing! It blooms and then reblooms and reblooms again and again! It’s a hard worker for sure and the color of little blooms are beautiful! I have 2 of these and just when I think they are done for the season....they bloom again!anita sauer, North Carolina, United States, 1 year ago
