Brilliant clusters of deep pink flowers are the most outstanding feature of the My Girl shrub rose. The ruffled blooms appear throughout the summer in groups of 5 to 30.  This shrub rose also has low maintenance needs, with a compact, upright habit that is easy to manage and offers excellent disease resistance. The showy flowers, which each last for a week, attract bees and have a gentle fragrance, making them ideal for cut flower arrangements.

The My Girl is an excellent performer in both cool and warmer areas, needing no winter protection as far north as zone 4. The medium green foliage is nearly evergreen and highly resistant to spot diseases. This reblooming rose makes an excellent specimen plant surrounded by annuals or low shrubs. It also has long flexible stems that can be tied to a trellis to perform as a low climber or several can be planted in a row to  form a flowering hedge.

My Girl Shrub Rose Care

This shrub rose will perform best in a site with full sun. It prefers well-drained, fertile soils within a moderate pH range. In sandy areas, enrich the soil with ample organic matter. Unlike with many roses, the superb disease resistance of the My Girl means routine spraying for diseases is not required. The My Girl has some ability to withstand drought, but regular watering to maintain soil moisture ensures maximum blooms. Fertilize the bush in spring and early summer and mulch around it each fall to achieve the best possible results.

Prune the My Girl in late winter or early spring before new growth emerges. Remove any dead, damaged, or rubbing branches and lightly cut back any out of place stems to maintain the plant’s shape.

My Girl Shrub Rose Spacing

The My Girl shrub rose grows 3 to 5 feet tall and wide. To create the look of a continuous, dense hedge, plant these roses 2 feet apart. If utilizing the My Girl as a single specimen plant or combining it with other types of plants, space it 4 to 5 feet away from other perennials or shrubs.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
