Miracle on the Hudson™ Rose Care
Miracle on the Hudson™ Rose grows best in full sun with a well drained, moist soil. An average soil texture and neutral pH is acceptable. Fertilizing needs to be done on an annual schedule. A well balanced, slow release food applied early in the spring as the new foliage appears will help to help this shrub rose to maintain vigorous growth and blooming.
Pruning is only needed once a year. Early in the spring, cutting out any dead, dying, diseased or diagonal branches.Roses are not drought tolerant and require additional irrigation, especially during extended hot and dry spells. Mulching with an organic compost or leaves will help the soil become more moisture retentive over time. Roses develop mildew and fungal diseases when watered from above. Using soaker hoses or a drip irrigation system to keep the leaves dry will greatly cut down on disease infections.
Miracle on the Hudson™ Rose Spacing
Miracle on the Hudson™ has been bred to stay lower and more compact than other shrub roses. The mature height is 3-4 feet and the width is 3-4 feet. Spacing of 40 inches on center will ensure proper air circulation around this lovely addition to your garden.
