Description

Cultivar: Neptune
Class: Hybrid Tea

Can an aquatic divinity enjoy fragrance? If so, Neptune would surely be spirited away after one sniff of his very own rose. You'll idolize the big blossoms of luscious lavender tinged with just a touch of purple. Certain to garner awards, the abundant blooms arrive on a praise-worthy plant with large glossy green leaves, good vigor and strong vitality. It's no myth, just take a whiff! Best bloom size in cooler temps.

Care

Sun Needs: Roses bloom the best in full sun. Choose a location with at least 6 hours of sun per day. Morning sun is more kind to the plant.
Soil/Water Needs: Rich, sandy loam is the preferred soil for roses. Amend difficult soils with humus, or consider building up the beds to ensure good drainage. Roses will not tolerate soggy, wet roots. Provide a slow, deep soaking with each irrigation. Sandy soils require more watering than clay soils. Hot temperatures should prompt more frequent irrigation. Only wet the foliage in very early morning hours.
