How To Care

You can plant any time of the year, just take care to avoid the most extreme temperatures in winter and summer. 

The South Africa Sunbelt rose tree can grow in full or part sun, but you will get the best color and blooms in full sun.

Rose trees are adaptable to any well drained soil. Choose a good quality potting mix like our Special Planting Mix when amending a sandy, clay, or nutrient poor soil. Use at least 50% of the original soil to be sure your rose tree will ultimately adapt to the environment.

Water your rose tree in well when planting. Keep the soil moist for the first month. Watering deeply 1 to 2 times per week versus a little bit everyday is ideal for helping you plant's roots establish quickly and grow well. Once established, allow the soil to dry before watering.

Use our slow-release fertilizer when planting and in spring. 

Prune lightly anytime to maintain shape. If a heavy pruning is required do this in late winter or early spring.

Growing a Rose Tree in Containers

Choose a pot a size larger than the pot your rose tree comes in. A 5 gallon pot is a good option that offers plenty of space without going too big and causing problems for your tree.  A standard 5 gallon pot is about 12 inches in diameter and 11 inches tall. Be sure the pot drains well.

Use a good quality potting mix like our Special Planting Mix when planting in containers. 

You will need to check on your rose tree more often when it is planted in a pot as the soil will dry out faster. Test the soil by sticking your finger in about 2 inches to test the moisture. When the planting medium feels dry to the touch go ahead and water your rose tree deeply with a hose right on the soil.

Fertilize at least twice a year with our slow release fertilizer. Early spring and mid to late summer are ideal times to boost your rose trees.

For South Africa tree roses grown in pots in zones 6 to 7a protect them in winter by moving them into an unheated garage or shed.

The entire experience has been excellent, from the initial order on line through the delivery of a tree ready to break into many blooms. This is our second purchase of this rose tree because we are so pleased with the first tree. This is our third purchase from Planting trees and we are very happy with the result.

So far so good

Good, they came quickly and tree was packaged well. The tree was cut back but should fill in nicely after some time.

The tree was well packaged and apparently undamaged. It has already produced blossoms. My only concern is that the root ball was very loose and fell apart as we transferred the tree to a larger pot. I am watching closely to determine if this harmed the tree. Otherwise very pleased with the plant.
