The flower’s pointed red buds & well-formed flowers turn up in colorful clusters making the Mardi Gras rose a complete show off. This rose is a consistent performer and is parade of its own. Since its introduction this rose has become a favorite amongst many gardeners and is excellent either as a specimen, for beds and borders, cut flower, garden or hedge. Mardi Gras rose is very heat resistant and is USDA zone 6b through 9b. It is susceptible to blackspot, mildew resistant and rust resistant. Protect tender new spring growth from hard freezes that may cause canker, die-back and death of the plant. To encourage re-bloom, remove spent blooms. For spring pruning, remove old canes and dead or diseased wood and cut back cranes that cross. Cut back remaining cranes by about one-third in warmer climates and in colder climates you may have to prune a little more than that.
