Shrub roses are easy to grow.  Choose a location with a minimum of 6 hours of direct sunlight and a well drained soil.  When watering, avoid getting the foliage wet, which can cause blighting of the leaves or black spot (both are leaf diseases).  If the roses are planted where they will be hit by a sprinkler system, water early in the morning (between 4 a.m. and 7 a.m.), so the foliage will not stay wet for a long period of time, which only increases the chance of getting blight on the leaves.  Prune roses aggressively in early spring to remove any dead stems and to shape the plant.  After the rose blooms fade, the dead flowers can be trimmed, which will help to produce more flowers on subsequent blooms. Everblooming indicates a plant which will produce a continual period of flowering.  Recurrent bloom roses flower for 2-3 weeks, then take a 2-3 week rest without flowers, then repeat the bloom cycle again.  Through the growing season, you can expect about 3 bloom cycles.
