This type of roses produce long, erect branches with large flowers at the ends, which can usually be severed.
Plants of this type tend to produce few branches from the bottom and if they are not carefully pruned, they tend to form straight, long bushes, filled with wood at the base, with small and poor quality flowers only on top of the vegetation.
These roses, due to their ability to bloom several times throughout the season, must be bravely pruned to allow the plant to stay young, to form new vigorous stems that bring beautiful, abundant flowers. It is recommended to eliminate even more than 60% of the plant’s branches:
- eliminate dry, weak, too old and unproductive branches
- shorten the branches by more than 2 years, preferably keeping the branches of the previous year
- lower the plant to about 1/3 of its total height
