This is the cupid rose for everyone’s landscape. Because of its easy-keeper disposition, luscious gently rounded and full cherub shrub shape, its almost-as-wide-as-long shiny deep green flirty foliage, and its bowing fragrant clustered gentle pink buds and blossoms, it's hard not to think “You’re so sweet, I wish you were mine”.
Bonica is not likely to be found in your florist shop because it produces its roses in clusters on shorter willowy steams. This will make your bouquets look all the more unique with just a few of its plentiful blooms in your vase.
Ask your local nursery how you should prune your Bonica, considering your
and soil. Depending on where you live and where you plant Bonica, it may benefit from a gentle or more aggressive level of pruning. It can make an excellent rounded hedge when shaped properly.
