Roses love Texas. These are a mini rose called Happy Chappy. They are prolific blossomers. I don't fertilize them much, though I do spread new mulch around every couple of years (as it breaks down). I also give them a biweekly Epsom spray and dead prune them through the growing season. If they need a harder cutting back, I usually wait until late winter. Grasshoppers have eaten my roses to bits, so I'm experimenting with neem oil this year to see if that helps.
