2 left in stock
Cinco de Mayo Rose features showy fragrant coral-pink flowers with lavender overtones, yellow eyes and a creamy white ring at the ends of the branches from late spring to early fall. The flowers are excellent for cutting. It has green foliage which emerges dark red in spring. The oval compound leaves do not develop any appreciable fall colour. Cinco de Mayo Rose is a multi-stemmed deciduous shrub with an upright spreading habit of growth. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition. This shrub will require occasional maintenance and upkeep, and is best pruned in late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed. It is a good choice for attracting bees to your yard. Cinco de Mayo Rose will grow to be about 4 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 3 feet. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front. It grows at a fast rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 30 years. This shrub should only be grown in full sunlight. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This particular variety is an inter specific hybrid.
