  • water dropWater

    Hybrid Tea roses like the Rosa 'Bride's Farewell' (common name) should be watered deeply and infrequently to encourage a strong root system; about 1-2 times per week is ideal during active growth, depending on the climate and soil moisture levels. A good practice is to provide the rose with approximately 1-2 gallons of water each time, ensuring it reaches the roots without flooding the plant. During hot weather or dry spells, watering frequency should increase. It's essential not to water the foliage directly to prevent fungal diseases; instead, apply water at the base of the plant. Ensure proper drainage to avoid waterlogging, which can lead to root rot.

  • sunLight

    The ideal lighting condition for the Rosa 'Bride's Farewell' is full sun, meaning the plant should receive at least 6 hours of direct sunlight daily. It thrives in a spot that provides morning sunlight and some protection from the intense afternoon sun, if possible. Avoid overly shaded areas as they can lead to poor blooming and increased susceptibility to diseases.

  • thermometerTemperature

    Rosa 'Bride's Farewell' performs best in temperate climates, where the temperature range is between 70°F and 85°F during the growing season. These roses can typically withstand winter temperatures as low as 20°F but may require protective mulching in colder zones. Generally, they will flourish within a temperature range of 55°F to 90°F.

  • scissorsPruning

    Pruning the Rosa 'Bride's Farewell' is vital for maintaining plant health, encouraging new growth, and fostering abundant blooms. Prune early in the spring when buds begin to swell, removing dead or damaged canes and opening up the center to improve air circulation. Prune again lightly after each bloom cycle to remove spent blooms and encourage continuous flowering. The best time for major pruning is late winter or early spring, just before new growth starts.

  • circleLife cycle

    The Rosa 'Bride' typically starts its life cycle from a dormant, bare-root plant or a potted specimen. After planting, it enters a vegetative stage where leaves, stems, and roots develop, with the rose bush using this time to establish itself in the soil. As temperatures increase in spring, it begins rapid growth and soon produces buds that will become its characteristic flowers. The blooming phase occurs repeatedly throughout the growing season, showcasing the plant's large, fragrant flowers that range in color from cream to white. Once pollinated, some flowers may develop into hips (seed pods), containing seeds that could give rise to new plants if conditions are favorable. During fall and winter, the plant enters a period of dormancy, conserving energy for the next growing cycle.

      Spring-Early Summer

    • The Rosa Bride, also known as 'Fryyearn' (PBR), is effectively propagated using a method known as softwood cuttings, a technique typically performed during late spring to early summer. To propagate the Rosa Bride, a grower selects a healthy, non-flowering shoot and cuts a 4 to 6-inch (10 to 15 cm) piece just below a leaf node. The lower leaves are removed, and the cut end is often dipped in a rooting hormone powder or gel to enhance root development. Next, the cutting is placed in a pot filled with a well-draining soil mix, such as half peat and half perlite. The cutting should be kept under high humidity, which can be achieved by covering it with a plastic bag or placing it in a propagator, and it should be placed in indirect light. The soil must be kept moist but not waterlogged. Roots usually develop within a few weeks, after which the new plant can eventually be transplanted outdoors.
