Caring for Your Shrub Roses
You're not completely off the hook: these are low-maintenance blooms—not no-maintenance blooms! They'll thrive with routine watering (twice a week), some fertilizing (once a month), and a bit of pruning. Larger varieties may require additional training and pruning, depending on how much space you have in your garden and your landscape design. Make time for pruning wilted flowers to ensure ongoing blooms throughout the season.
