This plant may not thrive in your area
The Tropicana is an award-winning rose whose honors include 15 international prizes and the prestigious All-America Gold Certificate. Basically, it's a one-of-a-kind pick because it's the winner of more awards than any other variety in history.
Known as the Super Star Rose, it's got a perfectly compact silhouette that reaches only 3 feet high, so it's ideal for most spaces. But despite its smaller size, it still delivers a profusion of fluorescent salmon-red flowers, even in the hottest summer temperatures.
Imagine rare orange blooms that reach 6 inches across, have an intoxicatingly fruity scent to welcome guests to your garden and keep on thriving through the unpleasant summer heat. Even better is the fact that the Tropicana is one of the best cut flowers ever because the blooms last more than a week after cutting.
So, the Tropicana delivers unmatched color from summer to early fall. You get full, robust petals of vibrant orange like you've never seen before.
But roses from Brighter Blooms arrive with a well-developed root system, housed in nutrient-rich soil and the pot they're grown in from day one.
When you order your Tropicana from our nursery, you get a rose worthy of a professional garden. Now, you won't have to compromise and buy bare-root plants with canes dipped in wax from big-box retailers...instead, you'll get huge 3-gallon roses that give you color as soon as the first season!
The rich color of the Tropicana Rose is years in the making, developed to perfection by experts. Don't wait - order your Tropicana Rose today!
1. Planting: Select a spot with well-drained soil and full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day).
Plant your rose in a hole twice as wide but just as deep as the root ball. Water immediately to establish roots. Add a 3-inch layer of mulch around the surrounding soil.
If you're planting in a container, select a pot that's about twice the size of your plant's shipped container and use organic soil. Place your rose, water to settle its roots, and find a sunny spot on your porch or patio to place your container.
2. Watering: Water weekly, or check the surrounding soil. When the soil is dry about 3 inches down, it's time to water your rose.
If your rose is container-planted, water until you see it flowing from the drainage holes at the bottom.
3. Fertilizing: Feed with a liquid rose fertilizer, once in the spring and once in the summer. Follow the instructions on the package.
4. Pruning: Other than for shaping purposes, no pruning is required for your Tropicana.
