      The plant commonly known as rose generally has a low level of toxicity to humans. Roses are not considered poisonous and are sometimes used in culinary applications, like rose water or rose hips which are high in vitamin C.

  • water dropWater

    Roses, including 'For Your Eyes Only', prefer deep watering rather than light sprinkles. It's important to water them deeply so the moisture reaches the roots, which promotes strong growth. Water this rose about once a week with around 1 to 2 gallons of water, adjusting frequency based on weather conditions—a hot, dry spell would require more frequent watering, perhaps every three to four days. During the winter or in rainy periods, you can reduce the amount of water since the plant's needs decrease. Always water at the base of the plant to avoid wetting the foliage, which can promote disease.

  • sunLight

    'For Your Eyes Only' rose thrives in full sun conditions, meaning it needs at least six hours of direct sun each day to perform best. The ideal spot for this plant is in an area that receives morning sun and is protected from the intense heat of the late afternoon sun, although it can tolerate full day exposure if necessary. Avoid planting in heavy shade, as this can hinder bloom production and lead to an unhealthy plant.

  • thermometerTemperature

    The 'For Your Eyes Only' rose prefers temperate conditions and can generally survive in temperatures ranging from 20°F to 90°F, but it flourishes best when daytime temperatures are between 65°F and 75°F. It's hardy enough to withstand a few degrees of frost once established, but prolonged exposure to temperatures below 20°F may damage the plant. As with most roses, ensuring good air circulation can help prevent disease, especially in warmer, more humid climates.

  • scissorsPruning

    Pruning 'For Your Eyes Only' rose is essential for its health and vigor. Prune in late winter or early spring before new growth emerges, removing dead or diseased wood and shaping the plant. Thin out crowded areas to improve air circulation, which reduces the risk of disease. Pruning prompts blooming since roses bloom on new wood, so aim to do this annually, cutting back stems to an outward-facing bud to encourage an open, vase-shaped growth habit.

  • circleLife cycle

    The life cycle of the 'For Your Eyes Only' rose starts with seed germination, where the seeds sprout in suitable conditions of soil, temperature, and light. The seedlings then develop into young plants with leaves, a process known as the vegetative stage. As the plant matures, it enters the budding stage, where flower buds form and prepare to bloom. The blooming stage follows, showcasing the plant’s distinctive flowers with a range of colors and fragrances attracting pollinators. After pollination, the plant produces fruits, called hips, containing seeds for the next generation. Finally, in the dormant stage, the rose may lose its leaves and appear inactive during colder months but will resume growth with the return of favorable conditions.

      Early spring

    • Rosa For Your Eyes Only, also known as 'Cheweyesup', is typically propagated through the method of grafting, which is the most popular for many rose cultivars. This process generally begins during the dormant season, late winter to early spring, when the plants are not actively growing. In grafting, a piece of stem from the 'Cheweyesup' rose, called a scion, which has the buds of the desired variety, is inserted into the stem of a rootstock plant that provides the root system. The junction where the scion meets the rootstock is carefully bound and sealed to encourage the tissues to fuse as they heal and grow. Over time, this union allows the grafted bud to benefit from the rootstock's vigor and resilience, resulting in a new rose plant that reflects the qualities of Rosa For Your Eyes Only.
