Yes: outdoor shades in summer. Indoor full sun or under grow light
No: outdoor direct sunlight.
Soil topping(small rocks or pebbles) is recommended. Don't let the rose bud touch soil. Water on soil if the leaves turn soft, don't water on the rose, it will cause rotten when it's in dormant.
The rose will consume the outer leaves in dormant, so It's normal for outer layers dry out. We don't' pick off the outer dry leaves before shipping bc they provide water during shipping. If it turns black like rotten spot, just pick it off and make sure the inner leaves are ok.

***PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU BUY***
If your roses look dry, withered or even "dead", they're NOT dead! Most of our mountain roses sold are in dormant or just came out of dormancy, and once the roses are planted in moisturized soil and given couple of days, the roses WILL open up and start growing and new roots will grow out soon as well.
Dried leaves from the out layer of the plant are consumed by the plant itself to provide nutrition and it's NOT a sign of an unhealthy plant.
The mountain roses are just like other succulents, do not over water them, especially you have to avoid water directly into the center of leaves, if the water were left in the center, it may cause the plant to rotten.
I use organic potting soil, but you can use any other garden soil you like. I normally add some sand (not sea sand, they contain salt and that's deadly to the plants) or light stones to help the roots to breathe better (Sand helps the rooting, and light stones increase spaces between soils so the air flow is better)
During the hot summer time (above 85 F), the mountain roses WILL go dormant, during the dormancy, the plants should be kept in a bright place WITHOUT direct sunlight, and DO NOT water it when it's in dormant. Also, keep the soil dry if the temp is below 38 to 40 F, too much water in the soil may hurt the roots during night time.
Some plants will be cut and some soil will be removed for the safety of the plant during the shipment. The images on the listings are for REFERENCE purpose only. The pictures may be of different seasons/stages of growth and/or mass planted mature plants for landscaping vision. Please expect to plant your plants ASAP.
