Rosa 'Lady Elsie May' NOAelsie/ANGelsie

Description

An All American rose selection 'Lady Elsie May' was bred in Germany in 2002 by Richard Noack.  It was also introduced in 2002 as 'Lady Elsie May' by Angelica Nurseries.

Classified as a modern shrub rose, which tend to be more rugged, they bloom repeatedly and heavily throughout the growing season.  Shrub roses may tolerate colder climates.  They can produce more hips than other varieties.  Shrub roses can be used in containers, for beds and borders, in a cutting garden and in other gardens and landscapes.  

It is very resistant to diseases, including blackspot.  

Removing spent flowers will encourage your plant to re-bloom.  This continuous bloomer will flower through the season.  

As this rose blooms on new wood, spring is the ideal season for pruning.  The removal of dead, diseased wood and old canes can be done at that time as well as cutting back canes that cross.  Where the climate is warmer, the canes can be cut back by 1/3.  In colder climates, take more than 1/3 off.
