Rose Care for 'Wild Blue Yonder'

Rosa Grandiflora Wild Blue Yonder thrives in full sun, so provide it with at least 6 hours of sunlight daily. Plant it in well-draining soil enriched with organic matter. Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Apply a balanced rose fertilizer in early spring as new growth begins. Prune in late winter or early spring to remove dead or weak wood and shape the plant. Regular deadheading (removing spent blooms) encourages continuous flowering.
