Georgia Peach™ Shrub Rose
Rosa 'Georgia Peach™'

Special Attributes

The Georgia Peach™ Shrub Rose was discovered by local gardener Beth Steele in McDonough, Georgia in 2010, and introduced by yours truly in 2012. It is an exceptionally low-maintenance shrub rose that produces an abundance of gorgeous, peachy-pink double blossoms starting in early- to mid-spring and repeating throughout the season. The blossoms have a light fruity fragrance and measure 3 to 4 inches across when fully open. They are excellent for cutting to use in fresh floral arrangements. Since we planted the first Georgia Peach™ in our gardens in 2011, we have yet to see any disease on the attractive bluish-green foliage. Insect resistance has been remarkable good as well. 

The Georgia Peach™ Shrub Rose is a must have low-maintenance flowering beauty for every Georgia garden...and in gardens throughout USDA Zones 5a-9a  Find Your Zone

Landscape & Garden Uses

With an upright, rounded habit to about 3 to 4 feet in height with a 3 foot spread, the Georgia Peach Shrub Rose is perfect for garden beds or pots, planters and other containers of 14 inches or more in rim diameter. This beauty is ideal for use as an accent in smaller garden spaces and flowering shrub borders. In larger landscape spaces plant it in groupings or as a low-maintenance, colorful hedge or a boundary between landscaped areas. As with the Knock Out Roses, Georgia Peach™ is so disease-free it is one of  the few roses we recommend for use in home foundation plantings, where they serve nicely as accents or hedges. 

Suggested Spacing:  2.5 to 3' for solid hedges;  5' or more for space between plants

Cultural Preferences

The Georgia Peach™ Shrub Rose is exceptionally easy to grow in most any moist but well-drained soil with average fertility and full sun to part shade. Keep in mind, to avoid powdery mildew forming on the leaves, all roses require morning sun to dry the morning dew from their leaves, but will tolerate afternoon shade or filtered sun. 

The Georgia Peach Rose does not require pruning, however can benefit from it. To keep your Georgia Peach™ Shrub Rose full and bushy from year to year prune the branches back to about 15-18 inches above the ground before new growth begins to emerge in late winter or early spring. After this hard pruning, you Georgia Peach™ Shrub Rose will quickly flush out and start blooming with the arrival of warmer spring temperatures. Deadheading spent flowers through the season is not necessary, however will encourage new buds and more flowers.
