ABOUT ROSE TYPES

Hybird Tea - Single-stemmed, large-flowered, and delicately perfumed, hybrid teas are the epitome of the perfect rose.  Hybrid Teas generally bear one flower per stem and are beautiful in bud.  Plants reach about 3 feet in cold climates and 5 feet in warmer ones.  Space 24-30 inches apart in cold climates, 3-4 feet in warmer ones.  Remove faded flowers to ensure continual bloom.

Grandiflora - Tall-growing roses, often reaching 5 feet or more, even in harsh climates.  Sturdy, upright-growing plants bearing clusters of large flowers that are often as attractive as hybrid teas, although not as perfumed.  Grandifloras generally bloom continually over the flowering season rather than in bursts.  Space about 2-3 feet apart in cold climates, and 4 feet apart in warm ones.  Remove faded flowers to ensure continual bloom.

Floribunda - Variable in height ranging from 18” to 3 ½ feet.  They bear clusters of small to relatively large flowers (up to 3”) and come in a full range of colors in single or double blooms.  Constant bloom is their main characteristic.

Climbing - Climbers have long, supple canes and would actually become trailers if not trained to a support.  They can reach 10 feet or more.  They are often separated into two groups, large-flowered climbers, which bloom intermittently throughout the summer on thick canes, and ramblers, which have clusters of small flowers that bloom once in late spring or early summer on thinner canes.  Space about 3-4 ft apart.

Shrub - Shrub roses are the hardiest of all roses.  Easy to grow, disease resistant.  Prune to 2’ in height each spring.

Groundcover - Shrub roses with more spreading habit and good disease resistance. Used for low growing mass plantings.

Miniature - 18-24" height. Reblooms cover plants through season. Compact plant with flowers to match.

Tree - Rose bush is grafted on a 2' or 3' standard. Very colorful formal accent for a small space. Insulate the trunk in winter.
