Light: Full sun (6+ hrs of bright sun each day)
Soil: Well-drained soil is essential
Water: Average water needs, but blooms best with regular moisture
Fertilizing: Fertilize in spring with a granular (not liquid) rose fertilizer; may be fertilized monthly through late July if desired
Pruning: Cut back by about half its total height in late winter or early spring, and remove any very old or dead wood at that time as well. This will ensure a robust, flower-covered look.
