Spring Pruning: Remove old canes and dead or diseased wood and cut back canes that cross. In warmer climates, cut back the remaining canes by about one-third.

The blooms can range from bright scarlet to deep burgundy with stripes of white and/or pink, depending upon the climate and growing conditions. The low growing bush makes loads of brilliantly striped blooms with an old garden look. The colorful flowers last for many days on the bush and in cut bouquets. The healthy bush is perfect for brightening up the garden or in a container for a sunny location. This will be one of the first roses to bloom each year and make a nearly continuous display throughout the blooming season.
