Loving Touch Rosa 'Loving Touch'

Phonetic Spelling
RO-zuh
Description

Rosa 'Loving Touch'  is a shrub rose that performs best in mild climates.  Growing to only 3' tall, it is considered a miniature rose.  The deep apricot double blooms are fragrant and make great cut flowers.  It is best grown in a sandy/loam soil, however, will tolerate clay soil to some degree.  

It is recommended that you prune this rose on a regular basis.  Removing old canes, damaged or dead wood in addition to canes that cross, will increase air flow through the plant, therefore, inviting fewer diseases.  New growth after pruning will increase flower production.

Insects, Diseases, and Other Plant Problems:  Protect container grown plants from frost.
