I got my hands on this rose bush during the spring sale at my local botanical garden. Colors, while less intense when the heat arrives, is gorgeous.
Ringo All-Star™ Rose Rosa x
The optimum amount of sun or shade each plant needs to thrive: Full Sun (6+ hours), Part Sun (4-6 hours), Full Shade (up to 4 hours).
When you're this colorful, you only need five petals for big impact! The pleasing flowers of Ringo All-Star rose may look simple at first, but this plant packs in a lot of interest. The flowers start out a rich melon-orange with a cherry-red center. As each one ages, it transforms to lavender and pink, creating a look of multiple colors on one plant. A crown of fluffy yellow anthers bedecks the center and attracts pollinators. As with all Proven Winners roses, Ringo All-Star is disease resistant and low maintenance. No need to trim or deadhead to keep those fab flowers coming all season!
Available in better garden centers in spring 2021.

This versatile, floriferous rose can be grown on its own, as a hedge, or in a garden among other perennials, shrubs, or roses for an easy care display of consistent color.Maintenance Notes:
This rose does not need deadheading (i.e., there's no need to remove old flowers) in order to keep blooming. As for pruning, it's a good idea to cut the whole plant back by about half to one-third its total height in early spring - this removes any thinner buds at the top of the plant, ensuring that the growth for the year comes from the thicker buds further down the stems. Don't sweat it too much - just cut back the stems above where a nice, big bud is emerging.
Though this rose has proven itself resistant to powdery mildew and black spot, proper care and siting is important. Plant where it will get at least six - and ideally, eight or more - hours of bright sun each day. Avoid wetting the leaves when you water, or if you have a sprinkler system, adjust the head so that it waters the soil rather than the plant.
Fertilizing is not strictly necessary, but if you wish to, apply a granular rose fertilizer in early spring, once the ground has thawed.Ringo All-Star™ Rosa x 'ChewEyesUp'
