Differences in Roses


Hybrid Tea Roses

These are the most popular class of roses. They carry their flowers on long stems suitable for cutting. Use these as featured plants in a mixed bed of fragrant roses. You will need to cover these roses as their graft point is above ground. The graft point is the knob near the bottom of the rose. Some cover roses with cones, and others cover them with leafs or other organic matter. The graft just needs to be protected.

Floribunda and Grandiflora Roses

These roses are primarily landscape roses. They are shorter than hybrid teas and bloom more freely setting in clusters. You will need to cover these roses as their graft point is above ground. The graft point is the knob near the bottom of the rose. Some cover roses with cones, and others cover them with leafs or other organic matter. The graft just needs to be protected.

Climbing Roses

 The growth habit lends itself to a variety of uses, such as covering fences, climbing poles, pillars, a trellis, arches, or the side of a house. Some varieties are shrub rose varieties which mean they do not need to be covered during the winter. The other varieties you will need to cover as their graft point is above ground. The graft point is the knob near the bottom of the rose. Some cover roses with cones, and others cover them with leafs or other organic matter. The graft just needs to be protected.

Hardy Shrub Roses

Hardy shrub rose varieties have earned their name by being extremely tough. They can withstand hard freezes, drought, and wind without a care. Most have recurrent blooms through the season and are great trouble-free landscape shrubs. There is no need to even cover these varieties during winter months. They are low maintenance plants that are more pest resistant and disease tolerant than a hybrid rose is which makes them easy to grow. The roses are not for cutting but for enjoying on the bush. They could be used as a hedge or as a center piece in the flower garden. There are even varieties that are considered a ground cover.

Easy Elegance Shrub Roses

Hardy shrub roses that you do not need to cover for the winter. Most are low to medium height which means 2' to 5' when full grown. You should trim yearly in spring to promote bottom growth and compactness. Leave 8" to 12" when trimming. They might need an occasional spraying if bugs are a problem. All roses need fertilizer on a regular basis.

Tree Roses

These are roses that are grafted into the cane of another rose creating a tree like effect. In this climate we must make sure that the crown or graft part is well covered for the winter. The best way to do this is by digging a trench in the ground. The length of the trench should be the height of the rose. Then put the tree rose in a garbage bag and lay it in the trench. Then cover the hole and mark where you buried it. Next spring dig the tree up and trim it. It is a lot of work but well worth the beauty of it the next year.
