trees or shrubs for an effective composition.

This rose should only be grown in full sunlight. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. Placing the Hope For Humanity Rose in front of a dark back row such as Preston Lilac, Diablo Nine Bark or Schubert Cherry will provide the contrast to bring out the Morden Blush's flowers, fall colour an rose hips.
