Suntory Texas Summer Double

Oso Happy Candy Oh! is a sweet landscape rose with loads of perpetual blooms. Large sprays of single, candy apple red flowers bloom from summer until frost. Oso Happy Candy Oh! is a polyantha hybrid with a dense, mounding habit. It is great for mass plantings. Space the bushes 4-5 feet apart to make a dense border of red and green. It blazes in containers, too.

It is not a finicky rose. All you need to do is a quick shape-up in spring and then add some controlled release fertilizer. This rose does not need deadheading, summer pruning, or winter protection. ItŐs also disease resistant, so no need to spray it. And since it was bred by David Zlesak up in Minnesota, you know it's cold hardy. Plant it in USDA Zones 4-9.
