As needed
  • water dropWater

    Hybrid Tea Roses, including the Rosa 'Aphrodite', should be watered deep and infrequently to encourage deep root growth. They require watering once a week with about 1 to 2 gallons of water per plant, increasing to twice a week during extremely hot or dry conditions. In the growing season, ensure the soil is kept moist but not soggy, and avoid overhead watering to prevent leaf diseases. During winter months, reduce watering but do not allow the plant to dry out completely.

  • sunLight

    The Rosa 'Aphrodite' thrives in full sun with at least 6 hours of direct sunlight each day. Plant in a location where it can receive early morning sun, which is ideal for drying dew off the leaves to reduce the risk of fungal infections. Avoid overly shaded areas as this can lead to poor blooming and an increased susceptibility to pests and diseases.

  • thermometerTemperature

    Hybrid Tea Roses like Rosa 'Aphrodite' prefer temperate climates and do best in temperatures ranging between 60°F to 70°F. They can survive minimum temperatures of 20°F, but protection is recommended during frost to prevent damage to the plant. During hot summer days, temperatures much above 90°F may cause the plant to become heat-stressed, which can impede its growth and flowering.

  • scissorsPruning

    Rosa 'Aphrodite' should be pruned to promote healthy growth, remove deadwood, and shape the plant. The best time to prune is early spring, just as the buds begin to swell. Cut back by about one-third to one-half of the plant's height, removing any damaged or diseased stems. Pruning should be done annually, also consider light pruning after each bloom cycle to encourage further flowering.

  • circleLife cycle

    Rosa Aphrodite = 'Tan00847' (PBR) (S), commonly known as Aphrodite rose, begins its life as a seed or more commonly, from a cutting since roses are often propagated vegetatively for consistency. The cutting develops roots and grows into a young plant during the initial vegetative stage before it reaches maturity. Once mature, the plant will produce lush foliage and then flowers typically in late spring to early summer, depending on the climate. After pollination, often involving insects such as bees, the flowers will produce hips (fruit), which contain seeds that can lead to new plants if conditions are right. As a perennial, the Aphrodite rose enters a dormant phase in late fall and winter, conserving energy and resources. With proper care, including annual pruning, feeding, and pest management, this rose can repeat its growth cycle for many years, producing flowers annually.

    • Propogation time

      Spring to Summer

    • Propogation: The Rosa Aphrodite, commonly called Aphrodite Rose, can be propagated through the most popular method of softwood cuttings. This technique typically takes place in late spring to early summer when new growth is still somewhat pliable but not too mature. A cutting of about 6 to 8 inches (15 to 20 centimeters) is taken from a healthy stem that has just finished blooming, ensuring it has a few leaves. The lower leaves are removed and the cut end is dipped in rooting hormone, then placed in moist potting mix or perlite. Consistent moisture and indirect light encourage the cutting to develop roots over several weeks, after which it can be transplanted into the garden.
