5 Gorgeous Types of Roses
List of Types of Roses
The Hybrid Tea Roses
This is probably the most well-known type of rose. It’s essentially the rose that comes to mind whenever someone speaks of this flower. When you purchase a dozen roses for Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day, this is probably the flower you will be purchasing.
This flower is a cross between a perpetual hybrid rose, and a tea rose. It has been bred for both its beauty and its scent, and has come to essentially symbolize the entire category of roses. They come in many different colors to include red, white, pink, and yellow.
The Floribunda Rose
These are also known as the hybrid polyantha rose as it is a hybrid of the hybrid tea rose and polyantha rose. Like the hybrid tea rose, this flower can come in many different colors to include orange, pink, and of course, red. This flower is heartier than the hybrid tea rose, and tends to produce many more flowers.
The bush for this rose also tends to be quite large, but the flowers are shorter when compared to the hybrid tea. These roses aren’t particularly fragrant, but their appearance and heartiness makes them ideal for landscaping.
The Rogusa Rose
This is another very hearty rosebush, and can be grown in hard landscapes like those that are often exposed to heavy winds. This bush can grow to be very tall, though, through consistent pruning, can maintain a short and stocky shape. The petals of this flower are often orange with brilliant red tips. They can also be grown in other colors like red and purple. The flowers of this bush are large and they produce a sweet smell.
The Miniature Rose
Unlike the above roses, which fall into the “New Garden Rose” category, these flowers fall into the “Old Garden Rose” group. They produce, as you might imagine, smaller blooms. The plants tend to be very hearty, and the bush’s branches are stout with the plant growing to a maximum of 24 inches. The roses bloom in the summer and can be grown in a wide variety of colors.
The Shrub Rose
This is a generic designation given to the heartiest of rose bushes that are ideal for landscaping. They can come in any color you can imagine, and the flowers tend to grow in perfectly rounded. They are particularly good at surviving harsh winters, they have excellent disease resistance, and grow in a multitude of soil conditions.
These roses bloom in the summer, and generally grow to an average of 6 feet, though they can be pruned to any desired height.
