Dramatic Blooms that Dance with Color
The Dancing the Dark™ Rose Tree earns its name from its dramatic, true-red blooms that fade to nearly black as they mature. Often, the petals’ edges even turn a darker color than the center, adding a romantic and velvety look to your garden or home.
With its ruffled petals, vibrant red hue and green foliage, the Dancing in the Dark Rose Tree is the vision of a classic rose - and it has a pleasant fragrance to match. An added bonus? Dancing in the Dark Roses are perfect for cut flowers - you can decorate your own home or share a bouquet with a friend.
Gardeners love the Dancing the Dark Rose Tree for its vigorous, three-season blooms - you'll get bold color and added drama from spring through late autumn. And it's perfect for pollinator gardens and tolerant of urban pollution, so you can plant it along your driveway or even along the street without worrying about fading blooms.
Some roses are difficult to maintain, but not the Dancing in the Dark. All it requires to thrive are sunlight and a little water. Prepare your rose tree for a long life by pruning in the spring after the last winter freeze, mulching to retain the rose’s soil moisture, and fertilizing it once a month.
Plant your Dancing in the Dark Rose Tree in a garden bed, along a walkway or in pots around your patio - wherever you place it, you're guaranteed to get unbeatable color and strong growth. And when you get your Dancing in the Dark Rose Tree from BrighterBlooms.com, you get a happy, healthy plant that's been nurtured with care, so it's ready to thrive in your landscape on day one.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Choose a location with well-drained soil and full sun to partial sun (an area that receives at least 4 to 8 hours of sunlight per day). Areas with good air circulation also promote vigorous, healthy growth.
After you’ve selected your location, dig a hole twice as wide and as deep as your shrub's root ball. Once you’ve placed it, backfill the soil, tamp down to avoid air pockets and water to help establish its roots. Mulch around your Rose Tree to help retain moisture and keep weeds at bay.
2. Watering: Water around the roots rather than overhead, and water about once or twice weekly. Once your Rose Tree is established, water when the soil is dry 2-3 inches down. Mulching will greatly assist with soil moisture retention.
3. Pruning: Sterilize sharp pruning shears with hot water or rubbing alcohol, and always prune at an angle. Start by pruning back a little in the spring after the last hard freeze, and remove dead or old canes.
