A rose is a woody perennial flowering plant of the genus Rosa, in the family Rosaceae, or the flower it bears. There are over a hundred species and thousands of cultivars. They form a group of plants that can be erect shrubs, climbing or trailing with stems that are often armed with sharp prickles. Flowers vary in size and shape and are usually large and showy, in colours ranging from white through yellows and reds. Most species are native to Asia, with smaller numbers native to Europe, North America, and northwestern Africa. Species, cultivars and hybrids are all widely grown for their beauty and often are fragrant. Roses have acquired cultural significance in many societies. Rose plants range in size from compact, miniature roses, to climbers that can reach seven meters in height. Different species hybridize easily, and this has been used in the development of the wide range of garden roses.
Tips for How to Buy Rose Bushes
First of all, I highly recommend the beginning rose gardeners NOT buy any of the rose bushes you can buy cheaply that come in plastic bags, some with wax on their canes. Many of these rose bushes have severely cut back or damaged root systems. send roses to kharkov
Choosing Types of Roses for Your Garden
Which types of roses you choose to buy depends on what you are looking to get out of your roses.
- If you like the high centered tight blooms like you see at most florist shops, the Hybrid Tea rose may be what you want. These roses grow tall and usually do not bush out too much.
- Some Grandiflora rose bushes grow tall as well and have those nice blooms; however, they typically are more than one bloom to a stem. In order to get one nice big bloom, you would have to disbud (remove some of the buds) early on to allow the rose bush’s energy to go to the buds left.
- Floribunda rose bushes are usually shorter and bushy and love to load up with bouquets of blooms. flower delivery to kharkov
