The Rare Orange Rose That Stands Up to Heat
Why Tropicana Roses?
An award-winning rose whose honors include 15 international prizes and the prestigious All-America Gold Certificate, the Tropicana Rose is a one-of-a-kind pick.
Also known as the Super Star Rose, it's the winner of more awards than any other variety in history. And it's no wonder why: With a perfectly compact silhouette that reaches only 3 feet high, it's ideal for most spaces. But despite its smaller size, it explodes with fluorescent salmon-red flowers that hold their unmatched color, even in the hottest summer temperatures.
These rare orange blooms, reaching 6 inches across, have an intoxicatingly fruity scent to welcome guests to your garden. Plus, Tropicana is one of the best cut flowers since the blooms last more than a week after cutting.
Tropicana delivers unmatched color from summer to early fall, with full, robust petals of vibrant orange like you've never seen before. Color and unbelievable fragrance? It seems too good to be true, but with the Tropicana, you'll truly have it all.
Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better
Not only are orange rose varieties nearly impossible to find, but orange roses with healthy, better-developed roots are almost unheard-of. In fact, most of the bare-root varieties at big-box retailers don't have fragrance or full orange blooms because they've been bred for lower-maintenance needs.
Roses from Fast Growing Trees arrive with a well-developed root system, housed in nutrient-rich soil and the pot they're grown in from day one.
When you order your Tropicana from Fast Growing Trees, you get a rose worthy of the most discerning rose connoisseur. Now, you won't have to compromise and buy bare-root plants with canes dipped in wax from big-box retailers...instead, you'll get huge 3-gallon roses that give you color as soon as the first season!
The rich color of the Tropicana Rose is years in the making, developed to perfection by experts. Don't wait - order your Tropicana Rose today!

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Select a spot with well-drained soil and full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day).
Plant your rose in a hole twice as wide but just as deep as the root ball. Water immediately to establish roots. Add a 3-inch layer of mulch around the surrounding soil.
If you're planting in a container, select a pot that's about twice the size of your plant's shipped container and use organic soil. Place your rose, water to settle its roots, and find a sunny spot on your porch or patio to place your container.
2. Watering: Water weekly, or check the surrounding soil. When the soil is dry about 3 inches down, it's time to water your rose.
If your rose is container-planted, water until you see it flowing from the drainage holes at the bottom.
3. Fertilizing: Feed with a liquid rose fertilizer, once in the spring and once in the summer. Follow the instructions on the package.
4. Pruning: Other than for shaping purposes, no pruning is required for your Tropicana.
