Koko Loko™ Rose (Bare Root)

Size
  • The beloved, Koko Loko, adored by all for the unique lavender brown hues. Her petals form delicious light chocolate buds that open to a mauve cafe color and fade to a beautiful lavender hue as they age. Dark green foliage, easy to grow Floribunda shrub form with many blooms on each stem. Has flushes throughout the season. Grows in zones 6 and warmer.

    Bred by Christian Bedard 

    These roses are shipped as #1 grade bare root. These are NOT shipped in a pot with soil. Roses will arrive with canes pruned and bare roots ready to be planted right away.

    How to plan for your bare root rose arrival...

    We typically plant our bare roots with the grafted node or bud union just below the surface of the soil, about two inches. There are different views on planting bare roots roses, but this way works best for us so that the graft is protected underground from harsh winters, winds and I've read that the grafted rose could potentially grow it's own roots if they are just below ground level.

    To plant a bare root rose first decide on placement in your garden by finding a location that gets at least 4-6 hours a day of sunlight. Afternoon shade might be good in hot climates. Make sure the spot you pick isn't too close to a tree or other large shrub that would be competing.

    When you receive your rose you'll want to unpack it and let the roots sit in a bucket of water for a couple hours. While they are drinking up dig a hole twice as big as the roots (about a foot and a half round and loosen up the soil at the bottom so the roots can easily penetrate as they grow.  Create a mound of soil at the bottom to support the roots and add compost manure if you have any. Back fill the hole with soil and firm down with your boot or back of the shovel. Water in and add more soil if needed.

Ground Frozen

I wrote you a note regarding this. When my roses arrived they were in good shape but our ground was frozen and I could not dig a hole for them. It was 5 days before I could do so. I planted the roses in two exlarge pots but I am afraid that they may not make it. If they do, great! but if they don't I feel like I did all I could.

Hi Lisa,

I appreciated your email reaching out and taking time to leave a review. An extra few days before being planted as long as you kept their roots wet shouldn't be a problem what so ever. :) All of or bare roots are shipped in February when orders are placed, with your local weather in the 50's and 60's they should have been very happy to make it in the ground. You'll want to make sure to plant them in the ground before next winter as you'll lose a hardiness zone if you keep them in a container and that isn't advised for your zone. :) If they don't thrive please reach back out right away at hello@thegreenhousepnw.com and we are happy to help!
