A mature Freedom Hedge rose will bear hundreds of sweet smelling, old-fashioned red or pink roses all summer long. Due to its easy care, the Freedom rose is perfect for beginning rose gardeners.
This is a shrub rose with a very dense growth habit. Once planted in your garden, it will grow quickly into a 3-4 foot tall bush.
The inch thick canes are enrobed in an abundance of healthy foliage which resists both insects and diseases.
The 3.5 inch quartered blooms begin arriving in waves in June and don't stop until halted by a hard freeze. The lovely, fragrant flowers occur in nodding clusters. At peak bloom, the shrub will be covered by them.
The Freedom rose is available in 2 colors: the pink depicted above and the red below.
The red is deep, rich and velvety while the pink flowers are flagrantly feminine. If you can't decide between them, plant them both. They will enhance different areas in your landscape.
Expect 4 feet of growth the first year (from a bare root plant). You will have a dense, 6 foot shrub the second year. Even if you cut it back hard in the spring.
To make of hedge of Freedom roses, space the plants 3 feet apart. They will grow together in their first season, forming a solid hedge.
