Biological features

The demand for roses and their recognition depends on the biological characteristics, which are characterized by certain indicators, such as the height of the bush, the size and color of the buds, the flowering period, the aroma, as well as the resistance of the variety to diseases and temperature extremes.

Bush height

Such a variety can be called universal, it is excellent for planting in a small garden, as well as for creating large-scale compositions in landscape design. Bushes are branched, but compact enough, reach a height of 60 to 80 cm, have strong shoots and luxurious light green, glossy foliage. The width of the bush is about 80 cm.

The buds are quite large, reaching 8 cm in diameter. At the beginning of flowering, the middle of the white bud has a pinkish tint, it becomes especially saturated in cool time. Gradually blooming, the buds become pure radiant white color. On one brush can concentrate from 10 to 15 buds, so the whole bush soon after the start of flowering, is covered with delicate white flowers.

Flowering "Aspirin Rose" is quite abundant and simultaneous, fallen buds are continuously replaced by new spectacular flowers. Variety refers to the re-flowering plants, the duration of flowering is about 5 months - from the beginning of summer, until the first frost in October.

Despite the beauty of the Aspirin Rose variety of buds, their smell is subtle, fairly light and unobtrusive, but at the same time pleasant.

Winter hardiness and disease resistance

The rose of this variety belongs to the fifth zone of winter hardiness, that is, it can withstand temperatures up to -29 ° C, but, despite such characteristics, it is recommended to cover bushes for the winter for reinsurance. The variety has a high resistance to diseases that most often affect roses. Among them are black spot and powdery mildew. The rose can be affected by these diseases only in rare cases, if the growing conditions were not met, or the whole period of growth of the rose was accompanied by unfavorable natural conditions.

Use in landscape design

"Aspirin Rose" is well suited for the design of every corner of the garden. Often the plants are planted in groups, so in the period of development of the bushes, they create a dense luxurious green carpet, which eventually becomes covered with abundant white flowering. This rose is considered indispensable for the design of the landscape of garden plots, while the plant can be used in any preferred style of decoration.

Growing conditions

"Aspirin Rose" refers to the most unpretentious varieties, which makes it very popular for use in landscape design in all corners of the planet. There are only a few recommendations to grow the most healthy and abundantly flowering plant. For planting rose bushes of the considered variety, it is recommended to choose sufficiently sunny areas. However, it is best if direct sunlight hits the bushes only in the morning and evening.

If the rose is under the open burning sun all day, its petals may be covered with ugly brown burn spots. The area should be well ventilated, it is not recommended to plant bushes in the lowlands, where there is stagnation of cold air. In this case, roses will often hurt, which will affect their normal growth and development. The preferred soil for planting this variety is black soil, but no worse than a rose will grow on loam. It is recommended that groundwater does not come close to the surface, they should be below one meter. The acidity of the soil is also important, the plant prefers slightly acidic soils with a pH of 6.0-6, 5. If the acidity of the soil is reduced, this can be corrected by adding manure or peat to the soil. Excessive acidity is also undesirable, so it is recommended to liming the soil or powder it with ashes.

How to plant a rose on the plot

Land for planting roses "Aspirin Rose" is recommended to choose in accordance with the recommendations for lighting and windiness in the area and pick up the soil with the necessary characteristics. Favorable place for disembarking is the south-eastern or south-western side of the site. It is also better to choose a place on a hill, so that in the spring period thawed snow would move away from the bush faster. The landing time in regions characterized by warm winters is autumn, and in regions with frosty winters spring.

Considering the fact that ground cover roses have quite flexible shoots that reach the ground, intertwine and create a dense carpet, it is rather difficult to care for the plants, especially with regard to the removal of weeds. In this case, it is recommended to completely clean the area from large weeds and weed the soil well. The ideal option would be to treat the site with a Roundup and loosen the soil.

This is necessary in order to get rid of the stems and roots of weeds in an immediate order. So that over time the weeds do not appear again, the soil between the planted bushes is mulched using bark, sawdust, decorative chips, black film. Mulch must be filled with a thickness of not less than 4 cm to prevent the germination of weeds and complicate their existence.

The phased planting process looks like this:

1. To begin planting bushes, you must first dig holes 50 cm deep and 50 cm in diameter. If you plan a mass landing, you can dig one solid trench of the same depth as the pit.

4. Before planting roses for 15 minutes, lower the roots of the plant in a solution of clay soil. To do this, use 10 liters of water and 2 liters of soil.

Care features

In order for the plant to grow well and bloom abundantly, it is necessary not only to choose the right place for planting, but also to take care of it regularly, so consider the main nuances of caring for Aspirin Rose. First of all, it is necessary to understand the frequency and abundance of watering, since this factor is an integral part of the normal existence of rose bushes.

Watering roses is better early in the morning or late in the evening, when direct sunlight does not fall on the bushes. The frequency of watering should be regulated independently; watering is necessary when the top layer of soil under the bushes has dried up by 4 cm. Roses bloom profusely only if they are regularly fed. During the growing season, fertilizing is recommended to be carried out at least 4 times:

  • The 1st feeding is carried out in early spring when the first leaves are formed on the bush. To do this, use "Tsitovit", "Agricola" or any other means for flowering plants,

  • 2nd feeding is carried out a month after the first. The same dressings are used as in the first case,
  • The 3rd dressing is recommended during the period when the first wave of flowering ends. Thus, there is a stimulation of repeated flowering. It is necessary to use the same remedy as in the 1st and 2nd case,
  • The 4th dressing is recommended in the autumn, when the plant has completely faded and is preparing for a rest period. In this case, you must use any potash fertilizer for better aging of the shoots.
Cut the ground cover roses should be 2 times a year - in spring and autumn. In the spring, pruning of the shoots is made, which in the winter period were broken or frozen, they are cut to the root. There are several types of spring pruning:

  • short It is used for weak or old bushes, in this case, the shoots are cut so that they are left from 2 to 4 buds,
  • moderate. Used to stimulate early flowering and ensure maximum decoration. In this case, the shoots are pruned to the 5-7th buds.
Autumn pruning is to remove the fungus-affected shoots and shorten heavily overgrown bushes. The end of each shoot is shortened by 10-20 cm. In regions with frosty winters, care must be taken to shelter the rose. There is no need to hurry with the construction of the shelter, the roses absolutely perfectly tolerate frost down to -10 degrees, moreover, this temperature helps the plant to prepare for wintering. When frosts will be daily, without sudden drops in positive and negative temperatures, it is necessary to start sheltering roses. First of all, this procedure involves hilling bushes with earth.

    The nuances of agricultural engineering

    "Aspirin" planted in open areas without signs of stagnation of water and air. During the growing season, the bush is regularly watered and fed.

    Expert advice: “After a difficult wintering, roses need help in every way. Nutrients from the soil they absorb in a dissolved form, so you need to make sure that the earth around the bush does not dry out deeper than 3-4 cm. It must be borne in mind that in windy weather the earth dries out much faster. Approximate recommendations for the frequency of irrigation:t+24°Cone time every 7 days is enough, at + 25 °Cand above - twice a week. The volume of water should be sufficient for the moisture to reach the root zone. This is about 1 bucket per bush. ”

    Elena Ivaschenko- Head of the Nizhny Novgorod nursery of roses, the author of articles about roses in the magazine "Garden World".

    Tip # 1: Water the roses should be heated in the sun, rain or settled water.

    For the season, starting in spring, roses feed at least 4 rah (Read the same article? Feeding garden roses in spring: types of fertilizers and methods of application):

    Council number 2: Manure and chicken manure can be replaced by fermented infusion of nettle, dandelion or any green grass, including weeds from the garden.

    Annual specialized pruning rose "Aspirin" is not required. In the spring, only damaged and diseased shoots are cut out. Once every 3-5 years, the bush is rejuvenated by removing the oldest, dying stems.

    Gardeners reviews about the grade "Aspirin"

    Helena: Aspirin has been growing for 3 years. Already in the second year the bush stretched up to a meter wide. Blossoms without interruption from the beginning of June to the most frost. Rose is elegant and does not cause trouble. It winters (zone 4) under the spruce branches, not freezing. Does not get sick, does not require special care. Flowers are not afraid of either heat or heavy rain. True, in cool weather, the buds acquire a pinkish hue, however, it does not harm them at all. The bush always looks neat due to the ability to self-purification. The faded buds do not have time to fade - first the petals are showered, then the dried pedicle falls off. I recommend novice rozovam as the most trouble-free variety.

    Svetlana: Aspirin is a very beautiful rose. Terry flowers are collected in elegant inflorescences up to 15 pieces. Due to the constant flowering planting along the tracks look spectacular. It upsets that at the end of flowering the middle of the bud darkens, which somewhat spoils the overall impression. I would like to try other similar varieties of white roses. The main criterion - disease resistance, neat shape of the bush and long-term flowering.

    Olga: Under the listed parameters fits continuously blossoming landscape rose Kent. Spreading bush, low. Very good at mass landing. Blooms profusely before the first frost with small tassels along the entire length of the shoots. Rosettes are semi-double, radiant, pure white. Practically not ill, winters in the Rostov region without shelter. I can recommend two more similar varieties marked with the ADR sign. This is Lions Rose and Kosmos.

    Mistakes gardeners in the care of the rose "Aspirin"

    The main mistake in the cultivation of roses "Aspirin" - surface watering. The stems of a ground cover rose are spread across the ground. Watering such a bush under the root is inconvenient, so inexperienced gardeners usually use a sprinkler method (watering from the top with a hose or a watering can over the entire bush). First, with this method of watering on a sunny day, the leaves can get burned. Secondly, the conditions for the development of a fungal infection are created in the wet foliage. Thirdly, with visually abundant irrigation, the radical layer of the soil remains dry.

    For proper irrigation, it is recommended to make a groove with a depth of 10-15 cm along the perimeter of a single bush or along a group planting into which to pour water. After the moisture is absorbed, the hole should be sprinkled with earth, and even better - mulch.

    In early autumn, gardeners usually reduce the intensity of watering roses. The variety "Aspirin" is an exception to this generally accepted rule, as it continues to actively bloom. If the weather is dry, watering should continue as usual.

    Answers to questions from gardeners

    A skeleton built above the bushes provides an air gap when the roses are covered with lutrasil or spanbond.

    Question number 1: Do I need to cover "Aspirin" for the winter?

    In areas classified as USDA 5, Aspirin does not require thorough winter shelter due to the inherent high frost resistance of the variety.

It is best to use spruce branches or lutrasil (Read the same article? How to cover roses with spruce branches for the winter).

    Question number 1: How to prepare a seat for a rose seedling "Aspirin"?

    For full growth and flowering rose "Aspirin" need light fertile soil. As a drainage, pebbles, gravel, expanded clay, and coarse sand are laid on the bottom of the landing pit. A soil mix is ​​prepared to fill the hole:

  • fertile garden soil - 2 parts,
  • turf ground - part 1,
  • sand - 1 part,
  • humus - 1 part,
  • weathered clay - 1 part,

    • The Gold Standard (2006) is awarded by the Association of English Rose Breeders to the most attractive and disease resistant varieties.

    "Aspirin" according to the classification refers to floribunds for inflorescences of a variety of flowers, called "bouquet". But for the shape of the bush it is ranked as a ground cover, and polupletistymi, and low scrub - bushes can reach a height of only 80 cm.

    Small glossy dark green leaves are visible only at the beginning of flowering, then they are almost hidden behind the snow-white clouds of flowers.

    Adherents of roses with rich aromas will be disappointed: "Aspirinka" exudes a faint, weightless fragrance that does not suppress the fragrance of other colors.

    Planting in open ground

    Aspirin Rose planting time depends on the climate: in areas with a warm winter, it can be planted in the fall, in the central and northern regions - in the spring.

    When spring planting, pruning of shoots is necessary, in which it should be left on the branches: for weak bushes - no more than 2, for strong ones - no more than 3 buds. Autumn planting provides for only shortening the branches by 10-15 cm and the final pruning in the spring.

    Before planting, the roots of roses should preferably be kept for a long time in a container with water - for quick and painless rooting.

    The rose reveals all the nuances of beauty in sunny areas, but can also grow in light penumbra, then the flowers will not be snow white, but with a pearl-pink shade.

    The place chosen for the rose must be thoroughly weeded: although the spreading branches prevent the weeds from spreading, even a small presence is undesirable.

    In the excavated pit, 50x50 cm in size, layers of 10 cm thick are poured:

    • drainage, rubble or gravel can be used for it (to prevent water stagnation),
    • various mineral fertilizers,
    • garden land.

    After that, the soil is desirable to shed. When the ground absorbs water, pour a small hill of garden soil on which to evenly distribute the roots of the seedling.

    Carefully fill the roots with soil, making sure that the root neck of the rose is 3 cm below ground level - this guarantees the rapid formation of new stems.

    After the planting is over, it is necessary to water the bush again - so that there are no voids left between the roots. When the soil settles, pour on the ground, level the ground.
