Overview & Details

"Olympiad" Rose Root Stock
Olympiad, a hybrid tea type All-America rose, is a tough competitor. The Portland gold medal winner made a stunning debut as the official flower of the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics. Each strong, long stem sports a large well-formed bloom that maintains its true-red color from the bud through the very long life of the flower.

Planting Instructions
  • Select a well-drained location away from trees and hedges where there is sun at least half a day
  • Prepare the site by digging a hole 12" to 15" deep and about the same depth. If available, add 6-8" of compost, manure or top soil
  • It is best to plant immediately upon arrival. Remove package and soak the bush in water for about an hour. Prune the canes back to about 1" above the bud union. Then spread the roots out evenly into the prepared hole. Plant at a depth whereby the bud union (where the branches come together) will be about 1" above the soil level after back filling the hole
  • Mound soil or mulch over the bud union until the danger of frost has passed, removing it once new growth is observed
  • Soak soil every week when rain fall is deficient
  • Fertilize with a season-long balanced fertilizer once leaves start to emerge

Continuing Care
  • Pruning off an inch or so off the canes will help send a message to the rose that it is time to start growing once again
