Welcome to the World of Rose Gardening or Rose Gardening World.  Take time and smell the roses.  Roses have been around for millions of years which just prove that roses are not difficult to grow. The Rose is also our National Floral Emblem and the state flower of several states.  Here at Rose Gardening World, you’ll find rose articles that will educate you about roses – its history, rose culture, rose profiles and even rose verses all in one place.  So visit Rose Gardening World often.

Easy Going is a sport of Livin’ Easy and has the same characteristics as its parent except for the color which is golden peachy yellow with a hint of pink instead of orange and yellow.  This floribunda has a rating of 8.0 at 2012 American Rose Society Handbook for Selecting Roses.  Bloom size is 3 to 4 inches across.  Easy Going blooms profusely and the blooms come in clusters of 3 to 7 blooms and have 26-30 thick, wavy petals complemented by healthy dark green, shiny foliage.  Easy going has a sweet, honey scent.  Usually its habit is short, about two feet tall and rounded.  However, in my garden, it reaches almost four feet tall.  Easy Going is one of the healthiest plants in my garden.  Easy Going is amazing that it gets so healthy in its location where previous roses planted in the same spot always die.  It has won an All-American Rose Selections Award in 1996 and Royal National Rose Society Gold Medal in 1990.  Plant Easy Going in group of 3 or 5 for great impact.  Blue flower plants are good companion plants.
