General Description

The warm amber-yellow flowered rose Taos™ is a compact low-growing shrub rose that is nearly thornless. It was bred by Pernille Olesen of Fredensborg, Denmark and is the product of a cross between Rosa Amber Hit™ and Rosa Sun Cover™.

This hardy rose is a woody deciduous shrub with few thorns. It has a bushy habit, compound leaves that are glossy and dark to medium green and is everblooming. Throughout the season it produces and medium-sized, double (15-20 petals), cup-shaped flowers of pale amber-yellow that have a mild fragrance.

Roses prefer full to partial sun, moderate temperatures and perfectly drained, slightly acid soil with average to good fertility. They grow best in places with slightly dry climates, because such climates disfavor the fungal diseases that plague them. For this reason, it is important to maintain good airflow within and between planted roses through good planting and pruning practices which will dissuade fungal attacks. Roses are rife with pest and disease problems. In fact, there are many common pests and diseases that can harm them. Fortunately, new cultivars like Taos™ are bred to be disease resistant.

Shrub roses are a landscape and garden must because they are easy-to-grow and look great with everything. This selection may also be called Amber Cover™ in the trade.
