Easy Elegance Roses are low maintenance, disease and insect resistant shrub roses that bloom all season long.  They are own root roses, adding to their hardy nature.  An excellent choice for beginning gardeners, these roses are as close to plant it and forget as possible.

 

The Easy Elegance Series of roses are as easy to care for as flowering shrubs.  Follow standard planting practices for shrub roses and feed once a year in very early spring with a slow release fertilizer.  There is no need for a chemical regimen to control pests and disease.  The collection was bred by Bailey Nurseries and is a perfect northern rose with blooms that rival grafted tea roses.
