However, the plant is incredibly diverse and includes varieties such as groundcover roses, climbing roses, heirloom roses etc. Caring for a few varieties of rose plants are labour-intensive, nevertheless there is no doubt that they enhance the beauty of your garden with the colourful blooms.
Here Are 7 Roses For Your Garden:
The English-style roses have dense petals similar to antique roses. They also have a strong fragrance. They are a good option for cutting gardens. Also, their intensely perfumed blooms make sumptuous bouquets.
This variety develops long canes, which are well adapted to train on gazebos, arbors, fences and pillars. Most of climbing roses are variations or mutations of bush-types. They bloom continually or once in a season depending on the variety. They develop single, large blooms or clustered blooms.
The small flowers of this plant look similar to the graceful hybrid tea blossoms, but are in clusters rather than a single flower per stem. The size of these roses varies from low growing and compact to an open habit and 5 to 6 feet tall, which is ideal for high hedges.
This is a perfect blend of floribundas and hybrid teas. They produce elegantly shaped blooms similar to hybrid teas, but in long-stemmed bunches, which repeats continuously like floribundas. They are best suited for flower-borders and hedging.
Shrub roses are a beautiful way to fill the borders. They cover bare earth quickly and hence a great choice for mass planting under the tree, along the borders, lining a path, for hanging baskets, to fill a slope or window boxes.
Hybrid Tea Rose
This variety produces the showiest blossoms. This rose is upright and tall with sparse foliage at the base. The single blossom develops on long stems. The bud is as pretty as the open roses.
This is a great option for those with limited space for gardening. The miniature roses can be cultivated in containers. Also, they adapt well along low hedges and flowerbed edging.
