Eustacia Vye Rose Care
This beauty thrives in full sun. An east-facing location with loamy, slightly acidic, well-draining soil is ideal. If your soil lacks nutrients or has a higher pH, you can amend it with peat moss or coco coir. Depending on the root ball’s size, plant Eustacia Vye Rose in a hole that’s about 1.5 feet x 2 feet. Add a 1-to 2-inch layer of mulch to prevent water loss. Give this moisture-loving perennial 1 to 2 inches of water per week. Apply a rose-specific fertilizer to inspire bigger and better blooms throughout the season.
To encourage flowering and discourage disease, trim damaged, diseased, and/or dead canes during late winter/early spring. Then, cut back the healthy stems by a third. Also, remove spent flowers throughout the season to encourage reblooming.
Eustacia Vye Rose Spacing
Eustacia Vye Rose will beautify borders, beds, hedges, and containers. Provide 4 feet of space for specimen planting and 2 feet when planting en masse. If growing in a container, choose one that is at least 2 feet deep and a foot wide, Arrange this cut flower’s gorgeous pink blossoms alone or with alliums, baby’s breath, clematis, Gerber daisies, hydrangea, lilies, and peonies to form lovely bouquets.
