Rose chianti

Rose chianti

Description:

The is tolerant of part shade.  It is susceptible to mildew.  Spring Pruning: Remove old canes and dead or diseased wood and cut back canes that cross. In warmer climates, cut back the remaining canes by about one-third. In colder areas, you’ll probably find you’ll have to prune a little more than that.  Prune lightly until this rose gets established (about two years), then prune it back by about a third.

Background:
