Plant of the Week: RISE UP™ RINGO® Rose

Ringo® roses are some of our most popular varieties: the original Ringo®, Ringo All-Star™, and new to garden centers in 2023, Ringo® Double Pink and Rise Up™ Ringo®.

All have that flashy red eye in the center of the bloom. As one of the Rise Up™ varieties*, Rise Up™ Ringo® is also a climber – something gardeners have been requesting of Proven Winners® for some time. If you don’t want to train a climbing rose, that’s okay. You can also grow it as a tall shrub rose. It is hardy in USDA 4-8.

Like all roses, it will want full sun. Don’t try to cheat your way out of enough sunlight; roses in shade get spindly and don’t flower well.

Rise Up™ Ringo® will grow 3-5′ tall and 2-3′ wide. It has good disease resistance, and those pretty flowers are also fragrant!

Series Business

It’s a little difficult to categorize RISE UP™ Ringo®. Is it part of the RINGO® series of roses with the deep red flower centers or the new RISE UP™ series* of mini climber roses? Perhaps we should just categorize them as easy-care roses because the entire line of Proven Winners® ColorChoice® roses fits into that category!

If you want more, the Explore Roses page of the Proven Winners® ColorChoice® website has information about every rose we carry, plus a 10-part rose care video series featuring yours truly.

*The RISE UP series will premiere in garden centers in spring 2023.
