Yellow Simplicity® Hedge Rose
Perfect for border or mixed planting as well as hedge, foundation, and mass planting!
Yellow Simplicity® offers a hard-to-find color for shrub roses -- rich golden yellow. Reaching 4 to 5 feet high and 2 to 3 feet wide, it's compact enough for small spaces, yet roomy enough to form part of a large planting, hedge, or ribbon of color in the sunny border.
But the real beauty of this shrub is its blooms. A floribunda, it sets huge clusters of big double flowers, each boasting 18 petals of fade-proof color. Expect heavy and frequent cycles of bloom all summer long!
Named for their ease of care, the Simplicity® series is famously unfussy, needing no spraying or other treatment to keep their healthy foliage and heavy flowering. Zones 5-10. Var: JACyelsh (PP#10,283)

Easy as 1-2-3
Anyone can grow roses - all that's needed is a spot with 6 hours of sun a day. Roses are even well suited to container growing, so you don't have the excuse of no garden space!
Here's all there is to it!
STEP 1 - When your roses arrive, open the box immediately and soak roots in lukewarm water for 12 to 24 hours. If you can't plant them right away, you may leave them in their boxes for up to a week in a cool, dark place. Sprinkle roots with water every few days. (Please note: You can also grow roses in containers that are at least as big as a bucket.)
STEP 2 - Dig a hole about 18" deep and 24" wide. Make sure it's large enough to give the roots plenty of room to develop after planting. Loosen the soil at the bottom and sides. Build a mound in the center of the hole and set rose on top. For vigorous growth, abundant blooms and lush foliage, try adding J&P's Root Boost
STEP 3 - Fill the hole with two thirds of the remaining soil. Add water, let it soak in, then finish filling the hole. Tamp down lightly to remove air pockets and water well. Spread mulch around the plant to suppress weeds and retain moisture. Water 3-4 times a week until leaves begin to grow, weekly thereafter.

What to Expect
Container roses should typically be planted in late spring and fall. They’re easy to plant (all you need is a trowel), and they provide instant gratification, as they aren’t dormant and will have buds within a few short weeks, if they don’t when they arrive. They’re also perfect for transplanting into containers and make an attractive gift.
Container roses are usually nicely leafed out, and may even have flowers on them, which is a great way for you to know when you purchase them what they’re going to look and smell like.
