Plant Common Name

Groundcover Rose

General Description

This compact, low-growing rose bears an abundance of spicy-colored, lightly fragrant blooms on arching, mounding stems. It resulted from a 1991 cross by Christopher Hugh Warner of Newport, England.

Compound leaves with glossy deep-green leaflets cover the thorny stems of this blackspot- and mildew-resistant rose. Few-flowered clusters of single to semi-double, soft-orange, yellow-eyed blooms are produced in flushes from late spring to fall. The blooms fade to coral-pink. Deadheading is not required. This cultivar forms a dense hummock 16 to 24 inches (40 to 60 cm) high and 18 to 36 inches (45 to 90 cm) wide.

Oso Easy® roses do best in full to partial sun and fertile, moist, well-drained soil. Plants need little or no pruning. Watch for insect pests such as Japanese beetles and rose slugs. Fungal diseases are usually not a problem. Intermittent fertilizing and regular water will help keep these roses in flower and in health. This Oso Easy® rose makes an ideal subject for containers, low hedges, and mixed borders.
