Uses Notes: 

Groundcover, border, mixed in a perennial garden or small residential landscapes. If grown as a patio plant it should be planted in the ground in fall.

Maintenance Notes: 

Best in well drained, moist soil but tolerant of most soil conditions. Moderate to fast growth habit. This rose does not need to be sprayed or pruned like many other rose varieties. May be pruned to shape in spring.

Fertilization will help increase blooming. Apply a controlled release fertilizer in spring.

Do you expect roses to be fussy and difficult to grow?  Not this rebel!  Disease resistant Strawberry Crush needs no spraying, and blooms all season.  This lovely low mounded rose delivers clouds of blooms that emerge strawberry pink and transform to a creamy-pink. The large, double flowers are self cleaning and contrast wonderfully against the glossy dark green foliage.

Oso Easy roses are highly disease resistant and do not need spraying. The glossy green foliage is beautiful, and contrasts nicely with the soft peach flowers.

  • I bought 3 of these roses specifically for their hardiness and ease of care. All three have performed well and bloomed throughout the summer. They are all showing new growth this fall. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a rose that can withstand a cold, snowy winter.

    Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.

  • I was so excited about trying this new plant in my garden. I followed the directions to the letter, and no blooms. The follage is great though. I was expecting blooms from spring to fall. Not just the ones that was on it when I bought it.

    Unsatisfied Did not survive, inferior performance or did not bloom well - won't grow again.
