I love this rose... it blooms non-stop, in great sprays, and is thornless (yay!!). I have it in a bed of pink roses and perennials, and it just looks great. I'm about to buy some for a client whose garden I'm designing.
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).
Look Ma, no thorns!

Mixed borders. Since it is thornless, Oso Happy Smoothie rose may be planted in areas where typical roses with thorns would not work so well. Try it along walkways and driveways!Maintenance Notes:
Like all landscape roses, Oso Happy Smoothie needs little special care. In spring, when you see the leaf buds begin to swell, cut it back by about one-third or more - to just above a large, healthy bud. That's it! This plant benefits from mulch and will perform best in full sun (minimum 6 hours daily).Oso Happy® Smoothie Rosa x 'ZLECharlie' USPP 23,456
