  • circleLife cycle

    The life cycle of the Rosa 'Marry Me' (Dicwonder) (PBR) (Patio) begins with seed germination, where the seeds need to be stratified and then sown in well-draining soil to facilitate the growth of a young plant. Upon sprouting, the seedling will develop true leaves and gradually form a bushy structure through its vegetative growth stage, requiring sunlight, water, and nutrients to thrive. Following this, the plant enters the flowering stage as it matures, typically in its second year, displaying clusters of repeat-blooming, aromatic flowers that range from cream to pink hues. After pollination, which can involve insects or human intervention for cultivated roses, the flower forms rose hips (fruit) containing seeds, ready for dispersal and potential generation of new plants. The Rosa 'Marry Me' is a perennial, and after its blooming season, it will enter a period of dormancy during colder months, only to rejuvenate and repeat the cycle in the following growing season. It's essential to prune the rose during its dormant stage to ensure vigorous growth and abundant flowering in the subsequent cycle.

      Spring-Early Summer

    • Propogation: Rosa Marry Me 'Dicwonder', a patio rose, is best propagated through softwood cuttings, a method often used during late spring or early summer when new growth is soft and flexible. To propagate by this method, a healthy, non-flowering shoot is selected and a cutting of approximately 4 to 6 inches (about 10 to 15 cm) is made. The lower leaves are removed, and the cut end is often dipped in a rooting hormone to encourage root development. The cutting is then placed in a pot filled with a mix of peat and perlite or sand to provide good drainage and aeration. The pot is kept in a warm, humid environment, covered with a plastic bag or placed in a propagator to maintain high humidity, and within a few weeks, roots should begin to form.
