Soil: Any average, well-drained soil will do.
Water: Roses perform best with a steady supply of moisture. They are drought tolerant once they are established, however, flowering may slow or stop in extreme conditions, and flowers that do form will not last as long.
Pruning: In cold climates, prune in spring, just as the new growth begins to emerge. Cut the plant back by half to two-thirds, so that growth comes from the thicker buds lower on the plant. Every 3-5 years, remove the oldest stems to keep the center clear. In warm climates, prune in early winter.
Fertilizing: An application of a rose fertilizer in early spring is sufficient. However, you may fertilize monthly from early spring through late July if you wish.
