Outdoor Growing zone
The Super Hero Easy Elegance® Rose has those perfect pointed rose blossoms you have been dreaming off. The buds open into large, fully-double flowers of a rich medium-red, with slightly pinker highlights as they mature. The bush is rounded, with many branches and dark green satin leaves. This bush blooms continuously and is perfect in beds, along a path, by a door, edging a driveway or on a lawn. It can also be spread out on a fence or trellis as a lower climbing rose.
Grow the Super Hero Easy Elegance® Rose in full sun for best results. Plant in well-drained soil enriched with organic material. Roses thrive in heavier soils, including clays. Feed generously and remove spent blooms to stimulate continuous flowering. Highly resistant to diseases, this bush doesn’t need spraying with dangerous chemicals. A simple pruning in spring will keep it vigorous and constantly in flower.
Big, bold and beautiful – isn’t that everyone’s idea of the perfect rose? Many people think that growing roses that would take pride of place in a florist shop is for pros, or dedicated people with plenty of time on their hands. It doesn’t have to be that way. You can be a hero in your own home, and everyone will marvel at your success when you show them your amazing rose bush in full bloom. We won’t tell them our little secret – that this rose is so vigorous and easy to grow that you didn’t have to change in the garden shed into ‘Super-Gardener’ to succeed with it. Be your own superhero with the Super Hero Easy Elegance® Rose, and enjoy an endless succession of big, beautiful red roses on a disease-free bush that is as easy to grow as a garden shrub, but that delivers bunch after bunch of fantastic classic roses from summer into fall.
The Super Hero Rose is an upright shrubby rose that begins the season about 3 feet tall and continues to grow throughout it, often reaching 6 feet by the end of fall. It has many stems and forms a wide plant that can be up to 6 feet across by fall. The leaves have a lustrous satiny surface, and they are a rich, dark green color. The leaves are divided into 5 leaflets, each about 1-inch long. The foliage stays lush and green, and the plant stays full and bushy, right through the season, because it is very resistant to the main rose diseases – black spot and powdery mildew – that cause yellowing and leaf-drop. This plant grows on its own roots, not grafted, which means that no suckers are produced, and every branch can only be the correct variety.
Flowering begins in early summer, and continues right into fall, with an endless succession of blooms and an everblooming habit. Each shoot ends in a cluster of 3 to 5 roses, which first show as large, conical deep-pink buds. These open into large blooms of the classic hybrid-tea type found in florists. They are a full 4 inches across when mature, and each one lasts for a least a week on the bush. Packed with about 40 broad petals, these wonderful blooms are a rich medium-red, developing lighter pink highlights as they open. Mature blooms darken to purple-red tones and the whole flower releases the perfect fragrance of rose blossoms. When it finally ends the petals drop neatly, without leaving a mess that demands dead-heading.
Give in to temptation and plant these bushes throughout your garden for summer-long vibrant color. You will be able to cut for vases indoors, and still have a garden full of blooms. Plant as a specimen in beds, by a doorway or along a path. Grow a row, spacing them 3 feet apart, beside a path or driveway, or along a fence. Go full out and plant a bed of this wonderful rose as a stand-out feature on your lawn. The long canes of this bush also allow it to be trained as a climbing rose, tied to a fence or trellis.
Hardy from zone 4 to zone 9, without needing winter protection in zone 4, the Super Hero Rose is reliable and grows vigorously in both cool and warm zones – it has been tested all across the country, with superior results.
The Super Hero Rose will thrive in a position in your garden with full sun all day. Too much shade will reduce blooming. Plant in well-drained richer soils, including heavier clay soils, which roses thrive in. In dry, sandy soils enrich the bed before planting with plenty of organic materials like composts and manures.
Roses respond to fertilizers and rich mulches, so feed in spring and mulch over the root-zone in fall or spring. No spraying for diseases is needed, as this plant is highly resistant to both black spot and powdery mildew. Minor pests like greenfly can be easily controlled with a quick spray of soap as needed – no need for routine spraying. Remove spent flower stems if you wish, but it isn’t essential. Cut them back to just above the first full-sized leaf and new flowering stems will quickly develop. A simple pruning in spring will give the best result. Remove weak and dead branches, and branches more than 3 years old. Shorten back the remaining young, healthy stems by one-third, or you can prune harder for larger blooms. Waiting until the buds are about to sprout is an easy way to see where to prune back to. Prune thinner stems back shorter than thick ones, to stimulate strong growth.
Ping Lim is America’s most prominent breeder of roses this century. Now with his own business, he did break-through work late last century as a breeder with Bailey Nurseries, at their Yamhill, Oregon facility. To create this rose he began in 1996 with a classic hybrid tea rose called ‘Silver Jubilee’, created by Anne Cocker in Scotland in 1974. This pink rose is noted for its disease resistance, but it only grows well in cool, damp climates. Ping Lim took pollen from one of his own seedlings (93A254) and pollinated blooms of ‘Silver Jubilee’. Among the seedlings he grew was a stand-out individual, which became ‘BAIsuhe’ when it was patented in 2009. After testing across the country, in many climate zones, it was released as Super Hero Easy Elegance® by Bailey Nurseries.
