Austrian Copper Rose is certainly not new to the world of roses, having been tinkered with as early as 1590! But our customers have always asked for this very hardy rose that begins blooming in late spring long before any of the other roses even think about it. This rose produces a one-time-a-year but abundant single orange flowers with the edges being yellow, and can handle the toughest conditions and still perform. It is often used as an impenetrable hedge, as it does sucker. This is the most common rose found throughout Wyoming gardens.

Throughout this site, the following are used as guidelines for watering established plants:

water_drops_icon  These truly xeric plants can live with our 12 inches of natural annual precipitation and only need a winter watering during a multi-year drought, but they will thrive with a monthly watering. Overwatering will kill some of these.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants are adapted to intermittent deep watering with soil drying to a depth of a few inches between waterings. Watering frequency may be every couple of weeks during the active growing season and maybe only one winter watering for optimal care.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants need regular watering somewhat like a bluegrass lawn so that they never dry to depth in the root system during the active growing season, and need occasional winter watering to prevent root dessication and resultant plant death.

About sizes of our plants:

Sizes indicated with a # are roughly the equivalent in gallonage; so a #2 is about a 2 gallon pot size; b&b stands for balled and burlapped.
