This week I pruned my Oso Happy® with Oso Easy® Roses with the hedge clippers. My husband was tickled about it. The roses were in his way when he mowed. Now we shall have an English style prim and proper hedge of Oso Happy® with Oso Easy® roses in the fall to show you they are indestructible. Here’s the rotogravure of what the Proven Winner Oso Happy® with Oso Easy® rose bloom has looked like all year.

Today time and investment are factors that affect our decisions in everything we do. Most folks tell me I would have a rose garden if I had the time or roses weren’t so difficult to take care of.  Shannon Downey at Proven Winners had asked me to try something new; plant Proven Winners shrub roses in the fall. So I planted all the Oso Happy® and Oso Easy® roses in the fall of 2013 that same year I had also had the good fortune to meet Dr. David Zlesak at the Twin Cities Rose Club.

He has been doing remarkable work to develop winter hardy, disease resistant roses and roses that are resistant to just about every other hindrance that would keep folks from growing roses. Here’s his apricot climber, ‘Above And Beyond.’ Dr. Zlesak sent it to me to test grow it when I returned home. Many of the ‘Oso Happy’ roses were created by him as well. Winter hardy, disease resistant, they bloom like mad and you can prune them with the hedge clippers, they are real winners in every way.

This rose is spectacular.  I planted it in the fall along with all of these Proven Winner Oso Easy Roses that Shannon Downey sent me. We agreed to conduct our own test. I have never planted roses in the fall. It subsequently was the coldest winter in Illinois recorded weather history the winter of 2013. This is the second season for the Proven winner shrubs. Last winter the temps were were down to zero. I’m happy to report not one Oso Happy® or Oso Easy® rose was lost to the winter cold.
