Plant Common Name

Oso Happy™ Petit Pink Shrub Rose, Shrub Rose

General Description

Bred by Minnesota rosarian David Zlesak, this compact, disease-resistant, exceptionally hardy rose produces an abundance of dainty double blooms from spring to frost.

Compound leaves with glossy deep-green leaflets cover the thorny branches of this low mounding shrub rose. Clusters of small, double, medium-pink roses open in flushes throughout the growing season.

Oso Happy® roses do best in full to partial sun and fertile, moist, well-drained soil. Plants require little pruning and no deadheading. 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 Petit Pink in flower and in health. Oso Happy® roses make ideal subjects for containers, mixed borders, informal hedges, and groundcover plantings.
