The Blue Moon rose is classified as a hybrid tea rose. Hybrid tea roses are a popular group known for their large, high-centred blooms, which grow on long stems. They are typically bred for their vibrant colour, fragrance, and disease resistance, making them a popular choice for home gardens and commercial growers.
The Blue Moon hybrid tea rose is specifically known for its striking blue-lavender blooms, which are relatively uncommon in the world of roses. In addition to its classic rose shape and lilac blooms, the Blue Moon Rose is also prized for its sweet, strong fragrance, which makes the rose plant ideal for cut flower arrangements and special occasions.
Our Blue Moon variety is sold as bare-rooted roses - meaning the rose plants are dormant and sold without pots or potting media. Therefore, planting these roses takes some preparation. Ensure you prepare the soil in a location with well-draining soil rich in organic matter. Dig a hole large enough to support the plant’s roots, as this is ideal for bare-root roses. Water the rose plant thoroughly after planting and apply a layer of mulch around the base of the rose bush to retain moisture in the drained soil.
The blooming season for Blue Moon Roses is typically in late spring to early summer, with some repeat blooming throughout the season. The exact timing of the blooming season can vary depending on climate and growing conditions. In general, Blue Moon Roses will begin to bloom when the weather warms up and daylight hours increase. With proper care, you can expect your Blue Moon Rose to produce several flushes of blooms throughout the growing season, with the largest and most abundant blooms appearing in the early summer.
The best time to prune a Blue Moon rose is in late winter or early spring, just before new growth begins. This allows you to remove any dead, damaged, or diseased wood from the plant and shape it for optimal growth and bloom production during the upcoming growing season. You should also prune back any weak or spindly growth to promote strong, healthy shoots and shape the plant to your desired size and form by cutting back to a bud facing outward from the centre of the plant.
The frequency with which you should water your Blue Moon roses will depend on several factors, such as the climate, soil type, and size of the plant. Like any rose, blue moon varieties prefer moist, well-draining soil and should be watered deeply and regularly during the growing season to encourage healthy growth and blooming.
Blue Moon roses are versatile and beautiful plants valued for their stunning blooms and delicate fragrance. They are used for various purposes, including cut flowers, floral arrangements, and in garden beds. Due to their long slender stems, the Blue Moon climbing rose can cover a bare wall or fence to make your garden look even more appealing.
