Plant of the Week: OSO EASY LEMON ZEST® Rose

Who doesn’t love yellow flowers? I know I do. Yellow flowers are a must-have in my garden! I love to see the vibrant, cheery blooms lighting up my yard. Not only do they shine in your garden, but they’re also a symbol of joy and hope, something I’m sure we could all use after this past winter. A yellow rose would be an excellent way to bring some cheery yellow blooms to your garden. 

I know caring for roses can feel pretty intimidating for many people. But what if I told you it could be easy?

It’s Oso Easy®

Oso Easy Lemon Zest® Rosa is a fabulous landscape rose with sunny canary-yellow flowers that retain their color through their entire life cycle. Other yellow roses will fade to white before shattering, but Oso Easy Lemon Zest® is sunshiney all the way to the end.

It is hardy in USDA Zones 4-9 and grows 2-3′ tall and wide. It has excellent disease resistance and doesn’t need spraying.

Is yellow not your color? It’s okay I won’t hold it against you. Lucky for you, Lemon Zest® is part of the Oso Easy® series of roses, which includes a wide range of colors. Natalie has written posts about Oso Easy® Mango Salsa, Peasy®, Double Pink, Urban Legend®, Italian Ice®, and Double Red®. 

All Oso Easy® roses boast surprising hardiness and are strong rebloomers with dark green, glossy foliage. They boast exceptional resistance to diseases like black spot and powdery mildew – plus, their tidy habits make them ideally suited to a wide variety of gardening and landscaping needs. 

Low maintenance is the hallmark of Oso Easy® roses – they are self-cleaning, meaning their petals fall off when the flowers fade instead of turning brown and withering on the plant. That means no deadheading! Just give these roses at least 6 hours of sun a day and regular watering, and they’ll provide year after year of natural, easy-care beauty all season long.
