General Information

  • Instruction By Proven Winners
    Notes Starting out as a beautiful orange and fading to coral with a golden sun in the center, OSO EASY PAPRIKA will make you happy from summer to frost. This beauty has the habit, flower color and disease resistance that any rose lover is looking for. This rose does not need to be sprayed like many other rose varieties. Only reaching about 12 to 24 inches, it is ideal for the residential landscape. Oso Easy™ roses are extremely disease resistant. They are a favorite of our head grower because they have green glossy foliage free of disease. The foliage complements the bright flower color.

    1. Prune

    Pruning is usually not needed, but may be trimmed in spring.
    April
    1. Buy

    Purchase shrubs after the threat of frost has passed. If you buy sooner, be sure to provide protection to the tender new top growth at night. When choosing plants, don't be shy about popping the plant out of its pot to inspect the roots. The root mass should be free of black, mushy sections and amply fill the container. Remember, the more roots the better!
    2. Plant

    For those of you in Zone 6, plant as soon as the threat of frost has passed and the soil is workable. If the threat of frost persists, be sure to provide protection to tender new growth of the plant by covering at night. OSO EASY PAPRIKA thrives in full sun and prefers moist, well drained, loose soils. Apply a granular slow release fertilizer and water in well. It is recommended to apply 1 inch of water per week during the first growing season and be extra mindful during periods of heat and drought. Once established, PAPRIKA has average moisture requirements.
    3. Fertilize

    A top dressing of a granular slow release fertilizer in early spring is all this hardy shrub will need.
    4. Water

    As a rule of thumb, apply 1 inch of water per week during the first growing season. Be mindful of hot days and periods of drought. Even though OSO EASY PAPRIKA is highly disease resistant, it is still good practice to water roses in the morning, so leaf surface has ample time to dry.
    5. Prune

    Pruning is usually not needed, but may be trimmed in spring.
    6. Mulch

    Applying mulch around your flowering shrubs in the spring is a great idea. Not only does it look attractive, it keeps roots cool, conserves soil moisture, reduces water requirements, and acts as an effective weed barrier. Spread mulch evenly to a depth of 2 to 3 inches (if replenishing, don't allow build up to exceed 4" in depth). If your shrub is in lawn, mulch a ring between 3 to 6 feet in diameter around the trunk. Be careful to keep mulch an inch away from the shrub's trunk.

    1. Buy

    Visit your independent garden center now because fall is the best time to purchase shrubs! Here's why: In the spring, a new plant would have to divide it's energy between settling into a new home and growing immediately. In the fall however, the short days are causing the top to go dormant. All the while, the warm soil, that will persist for the coming weeks or months, provides the perfect environment for roots to acclimate. Once spring arrives, the happily established plant can focus on growing and flowering. When choosing plants, don't be shy about popping the plant out of its pot to inspect the roots. The root mass should be free of black, mushy sections and amply fill the container. Remember, the more roots the better!
    2. Plant

    Planting flowering shrubs now is a great time to get a jump on next year's garden! OSO EASY PAPRIKA thrives in full sun and prefers moist, well drained, loose soils. It's best too save the application of a granular slow-release fertilizer for spring to avoid the initiation of tender new growth. It is recommended to apply 1 inch of water per week during the first growing season and be extra mindful during periods of heat and drought. Once established, PAPRIKA has average moisture requirements.

    4. Prune

    Do not prune.
    5. Mulch

    Applying a winter top-dressing of mulch will provide protection to the roots from severe winter temperatures and frost heaving. Spread mulch evenly to a depth of 2 to 3 inches (if replenishing, don't allow build up to exceed 4" in depth). If your shrub is in lawn, mulch a ring between 3 to 6 feet in diameter around the trunk. Be careful to keep mulch an inch away from the shrub's trunk.

    Does this plant need to be mulched? Are there specific types of Mulch which are better for this plant? How much?

    Spread mulch evenly to a depth of 2 to 3 inches (if replenishing, don't allow build up to exceed 4" in depth). If your shrub is in lawn, mulch a ring between 3 to 6 feet in diameter around the trunk. Be careful to keep mulch an inch away from the shrub's trunk.
