shrubrose-bonica.jpg (21816 bytes) The Meidiland Rose 'Bonica' is an easy to grow Landscape rose.  Don't let its dainty appearance fool you - this is one tough rose! Bonica is extremely vigorous and disease resistant.  The pink blossoms appear in huge numbers from early summer right up through fall.  Bonica was voted the World's Favorite Rose in 1997 by the World Federation of Rose Societies and an All American Winner in 1987.   This rose is one of the most popular roses selected by gardeners who love roses but do not want to spend every gardening moment combating rose enemies such as bugs and disease.  Bonica was introduced by Meilland, the world famous family owned rose business in France.  The Meilland family has been hybridizing roses for decades. This is the same family that introduced the legendary 'Peace' rose after World War II. You can not go wrong with this amazing Landscape Rose - easy to grow with constant color.

Height: 30 - 48 inches
Habit: mounding (also makes a good ground cover)
Fragrance: mild
Disease Resistance: Very good
Zones: 4 -10  (coldest areas of 4 may require protection)

Culture Notes: Plant in area that receives full sun, a minimum of 5 hours of direct sun is recommended.  Landscape Roses are not as fussy about soils as many other types of roses, but will do their best in a soil that has been amended with plenty of organic materials. (see improving your soil for more info) While these roses are considered very heat tolerant they do require a moderate level of moisture to really flower heavily. Water during extended dry spells and frequently during the first 3 -4 weeks after planting.  To help conserve soil moisture it is always a good idea to apply a layer of organic mulch such as pine bark around the base of the plant to a depth of 3 - 4 inches.  Light pruning may be required to maintain a tidier plant and deadheading faded blooms will encourage heavier flowering.   Feed at least twice during the growing season with a combination of blood and bone meals.
