Maintenance- Design- Planting Tips
The pale-yellow flowers of 'Happenstance' provide a calming contrast to more brightly colored flowers. The arching branches of 'Happenstance' rose form a neat mound.
PADG Notes: This rose is a slow grower in the garden and doesn't need a lot of deadheading or pruning because it is not highly fertilized or watered. In February, some of the longer canes of 'Happenstance' are pruned back to about two feet to keep the rose a three-foot mounding shrub over the summer.
Despite the low maintenance approach, this plant blooms continually in the spring, summer, and fall. It is highly recommended as a medium-sized rose for water-wise perennial gardens.
