This small shrub has one of the longest bloom times of any plant in our area. Unlike old-fashioned roses, it is bushy, full, and hardy. It will bloom bright pink starting in mid-spring and re-bloom heavily till frost, especially if old flowers are removed.
It works very well for small gardens, foundation plantings, and mass plantings. Pruning this shrub in late winter will control the size and lead to a more compact plant. This shrub blooms best in full sun and will adapt to a wide variety of soils.
