Generosa shrub rose: Rosa Sonia Rykiel

Generosa shrub rose: R A very stylish rose, 'Sonia Rykiel' is named for the French designer. This shrub has much of the charm of an old-fashioned tea rose?quartered, coral-pink blossoms so large that they tend to nod, bowing the long, straight stems?with the added benefit of disease resistance. The perfume is the strongest of any of the Generosa roses.

Common pests include aphids, spider mites, and Japanese beetles. 5 10 Sonia Rykiel 48 48 a range of perennials. At Turkey Hill, Martha integrates roses into many of the flower beds, mixing them with peonies phlox, monkshood Japanese anemones euphorbias, and meadow rues Monitor soil moisture all season; use soaker hose to give roses an inch of water weekly during dry weather. Once newly planted bare-root roses break dormancy, feed with an all-purpose fertilizer at half rate, following package directions. After the first season, feed with balanced organic fertilizer in early spring and again in early summer at first bloom, and spray bushes with kelp extract in early fall. 0 To discourage fungal diseases, avoid wetting foliage, and remove and dispose of fallen leaves. Spray a mixture of 4 teaspoons baking soda and 1 tablespoon horticultural oil per gallon of water; repeat weekly. In Zone 10, strip remaining leaves from shrubs at spring pruning. For aphids and spider mites, use horticultural oil, following package directions. Handpick Japanese beetles and destroy. very strong Fertilizing roses late in the season (less than 6 weeks before first frost) actually decreases their winter hardiness—belated feedings promote tender new growth and the production of new canes that won’t mature fully and harden off before winter’s onset. The Guillot family nursery, Roseraie Guillot, which developed the Generosa shrub roses, has been in the business of rose hybridizing for more than 160 years. In 1867, the nursery introduced 'La France,' the first hybrid tea rose. Choose a sunny site with fertile, well-drained soil, and amend with well-rotted manure or compost. Plant container-grown roses in spring or fall (at least a month before frost) at the same level they were in the pot. Plant bare-root roses in early spring; before planting, soak entire plant in water for 12?24 hours to replace lost moisture. Dig a 2-by-2-foot hole. Return some soil to hole, forming a 1-foot mound. Place plant on the mound, fanning out roots. In Zones 6 and warmer, set bud union just above soil level; in Zones 5 and colder, set bud union 2?4 inches below soil level. Cover roots with soil, and water thoroughly, but do not fertilize at this time. 0 In late winter, shorten canes by half. When leaf buds open in spring, remove dead and diseased branches and crossing and weak canes. Deadhead spent blooms to promote flowering. In areas where frost occurs, discontinue deadheading and fertilization in early fall to prepare for dormancy. fertile, well drained 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 1 1 1 0 1 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 1 1 0 1 > 0 1 0 0 shrub rose
