Sold Out

Var: 'JACplenty'. As effortless as blowing bubbles, this free-flowering shrub fills the garden with bright, cheery color three seasons a year. Its mounding habit is really exceptional for a shrub rose, creating a much fuller, better-branched shape that means extra gorgeous creamy-pink-and-white eye candy blooms.

So easy, it is an ideal "starter" rose for new gardeners, yet even seasoned garden experts will be charmed and delighted by its bold single blooms in spring, summer, and even fall. Disease-resistant, very glossy dark green foliage complements the flowers and keeps 'Bubblicious' handsome right down to the ground. Great for a low hedge, container, or the border. Zones 4-10.

  • Butterflies like a lot of sunlight, so locate your garden in a sunny area.
  • If you live in a windy location, plant your butterfly-attracting plants near a building, fence, or hedge to protect them.
  • Plant a variety of nectar-rich plants, as well as shrubs and evergreens for shelter.
  • Since many butterflies and native flowering plants have co-evolved, try to put in some that are native to your area. The Lady Bird Johnson Wildlife Center provides lists of plants native to states and regions.
  • Certain colors are particularly attracting to butterflies – red, yellow, pink, purple, or orange blooms that are clustered or flat-topped, with a short flower tubes are especially attractive to adult butterflies.
  • Avoid using pesticides, especially around nectar-producing plants.
  • Provide a shallow source of water – try a birdbath with pebbles lining the bowl.
  • Place a rock in a sunny spot for butterfly basking and resting.
  • Create a "puddling area" by digging a shallow hole filled with compost or manure where rainwater will collect and release essential salts and minerals.
  • If you want butterflies to breed in your garden, put in some caterpillar food plants, such as parsley, milkweeds, asters, thistles, violets, clover, grasses, and Queen Anne’s Lace.
  • Since butterflies need nectar throughout the entire adult phase of their lives, try to create a design that will allow for a continuous bloom – when one stops blooming, another starts.
