How is the Manyo rose
To tell the truth, there is not much information about the cultivar of the Manyo rose. However, we can tell you that it was created in 1988, relatively modern. The author of this was the rosalista Seizo Suzuki, in Keisei. And yes, you guessed it, we moved in this case to Japan.
It is also known about this rose that it is a hybrid of several Floribunda roses (it is not known exactly which ones, but in that year it received the name it currently has.
And how is the Manyo rose? Well, it is a shrub-type rose bush that can grow up to 90 centimeters in height. It does not usually expand in width, but rather in height. Its leaves, as well as the stem, are very dark green and bright in color. But what attracts the most attention, and what stands out the most, are its medium-sized roses, made up of between 17 and 25 petals. They grow in groups of two or three flowers at the same time.
Y if you are wondering about its color, know that this is apricot, although it is possible that you will find roses of orange and white tones and they are Manyo.
Throughout the season (we’re talking about spring and summer) it may bloom several times.
Manyo rose care
Now that you know a little more about the Manyo rose, wouldn’t you like to enjoy the color of these flowers in your garden? If you like pastel tones and also orange, it can be a great success to have it. But, as with any plant, you need to know how to care for it. In this regard we want to help you and give you some advice that can come in handy to enjoy it. Shall we start?
location and temperature
like any rose bush, the ideal location of the Manyo rose is outdoors. Now, you can think of putting it in a pot, but also on the ground in the garden. In both places it will be fine as long as it gets several hours of direct sun. Of course, depending on where you live, and the sun that shines, you may need to place it in a semi-shade site (to prevent the sun from burning the petals) or in direct sun.
If you have it in a pot, It is best to put it in a place with a lot of sun, but you will need to watch it more often, especially in terms of watering.
Regarding the temperature, this rose bush is not too demanding, although It is a bit delicate with low temperatures (If it is the first year that you have it, you should protect it to prevent it from getting sick and dying). That is why it is recommended that at least until it fully adapts to the climate and location, much more control is done.
One of the keys for rose bushes to get ahead and grow properly is in the type of soil you use on them. That’s why, try a mix of universal soil with some worm castings (or similar, that can withstand humidity) and also adequate drainage (it will depend on the size of the plant). In this way you will oxygenate the roots while nourishing and holding moisture, which is always necessary.
Over time you will have to replace the soil (or transplant it if you have it in a pot). Take advantage at that time to add new substrate and thus replenish the nutrients.
Irrigation is important, but not too much. In spring you will only have to keep the soil moist, but in summer it will be even more important, especially since leaving it dry for a long time can end the flowering of that year.
For this reason, and depending on where you live and what your climate is, you will have to water it more or less. In winter, for example, once a week is enough; but in spring it will need at least two waterings. And, in summer, from 3 to 5 weekly irrigations.
Try not to water the leaves (this can cause the sun to burn them), let alone the flowers. All that will also cause the appearance of pests and diseases.
Fertilizing is recommended as long as you have not just transplanted it or added new soil. If not, try to throw it once a month, either organic or liquid with irrigation water. Of course, choose one that goes according to the roses.
Pruning is carried out either in autumn or at the end of winter. Consists in trim those branches that are dead, diseased, or that hinder other. In addition, the rest you will have to cut a third of their size so that they sprout and a new bloom comes out that year.
Plagues and diseases
Rose bushes in general are not plants that are affected by pests and diseases. But they are not invincible either. Among the pests that you can find are aphids and spiders, that will affect the health of the plant. If that happens, the best thing you can do is use potassium soap or neem oil and wash the entire plant so that you don’t miss a single one.
In the case of diseases, the most common has to do with root rot. But also You can face powdery mildew, rust, mildew or, a very common one, black spot.
Do you remember what we told you about pruning? Well, from those branches that you cut you could make some cuttings. It is convenient that you leave them 24-48 hours in the air so that they heal and then plant them in the ground. Of course, make sure they have knots because that’s where a new plant can come from.
As you can see, the Manyo rose can be a magnificent specimen for your garden, whether you want to have it in the garden or in a pot. Would you dare to get one of these plants?
