All you have to do is just stick it in the ground, give it a little water, kick back and watch it grow. The foliage is so glossy green and free from black spot that the bush looks great even without flowers. But you wont have much of an opportunity to see just leaves cause it blooms up a storm. Scrumptious flowers of showy apricot orange will both light up your landscape and blend in with other colors. Aint life grand?

Livin' Easy is by far my choice for best rose. I planted it as part of a rose garden for my mother and father in the spring of 1998. I was not disappointed. The luxurious green foliage did not need any spraying for insects or diseases, and the lovely orange color simply radiated from the long, healthy stems! It even kept most of its leaves green and healthy during the winter. Travis L. Salter Macon, GA
This is one of my favorite roses because it is just so darn colorful. Livin' Easy is so bright and always blooms nicely. Robert Woodruff Linden, MI
Livin' Easy is the most wondrous rose ever! Growing roses in south Louisiana can be a lot of hard work, as well as expensive...black spot is a huge problem. Livin' Easy is just that...blooms constantly and profusely with very little care. Livin' Easy is a wonder rose! Judy Trammell Lafayette, LA
