How do I dead head your roses? We just planted 3 of them. Thank you.


Thank you for adding our roses to your garden! The Easy Elegance rose planting and care guide has a helpful section on pruning. Easy Elegance roses have a smaller maturing size and require very little pruning. With their first year, it will probably be limited to deadheading, snipping off the spent flowers. To deadhead, trim off the stem of the flower you are removing at the flower cluster and be careful not to remove the buds that are coming on. Once that whole cluster of flowers is finished, trim the stem off just above the next set of leaves. I find that floral scissors are helpful with deadheading roses.
