Roses in Containers

Don’t forget that roses do well in containers. They make a great impact on patios and decks. Tree roses can be underplanted with blooming annuals for continuous color. Planted in an urn type planter, this would be a very elegant look.
 

Roses in Borders

Roses don’t have to be in a formal bed. They mix well with shrubs and fit nicely in perennial borders
 
Remember to remove the tag from your roses. It will cause the branch it is on to eventually die.

Rosa 'Home and Family'

Hybrid Teas

Perfect for the cutting garden! Hybrid tea roses have classic, shapely blooms that sit atop long single stems, looking beautiful in arrangements and in the garden. They are known for their highly fragrant blooms in a variety of scents.
 
Rosa 'Sparkle and Shine'

Floribundas

Excellent for landscaping, as background shrubs, planted in masses, as hedges and in borders. They are more compact than hybrid teas and produce profuse clusters of blooms throughout the summer months. 

 
Rosa 'Dick Clark'

Grandifloras

These produce large blooms of clusters and single blooms. The blooms are usually double and without a striking fragrance. Bushes normally grow to a height of 3 to 6 feet, making it ideal as a background border planting. 

 
Rosa 'Purple Splash'

Climbing Roses

Climbers and ramblers can range in size from miniature climbers (6 feet) to larger ones that can grow 10-12 feet up a tree. Climbers add grace and interest to every garden wherever you plant them. 

 
Rosa 'Bull's Eye'

Shrub Roses

Free-blooming with different flower sizes and forms, broadly varying in mature size but have a full bushy habit. They have good disease resistance and hardiness. A great way to add color to your landscape!

 

Miniature Roses

Miniature roses produce bursts of color and hide the bare canes of the larger hybrid tea roses. They also make great landscape plantings and can be used for lovely low hedges and borders.
