Rose Varieties

There are lots of varieties of this beautiful plant as earlier said, but we would only take a look at very few of them.

  • The Hybrid Tea: This is one of the most popular types of rose grown. It blossoms like an upright bush that grows one flower per stem. You probably would have come across them because they are prevalent in all regions.
  • Floribunda: This is the most colourful type of rose variety available. They bloom freely in a bushy shrub-like manner, creating clusters of three to fifteen blooms rather than one flower on a stem.
  • Grandiflora: This variety of the rose plant is a mixture of the floribunda and the hybrid tea. It grows up to six feet tall and creates a classic hybrid flower cluster.
  • Climber roe: This rose adds fragrance to any garden and is typically grown on a fence. They have the potential to cover pillars, walls or just any structure that gives support to them.
  • Tree Roe: This variety of the rose plant is known for its hardy rock stock. The tree rose is visually stunning, and it takes more care for it to survive during the winter.
  • The Miniature Rose: This is the smallest of the rose plant, and they can grow just anywhere from six inches to feet tall. They flower continuously and are a very excellent variety of the rose plant for a container or potted garden.

The uses of the Rose plant cannot be overemphasized. They are best known as ornamental plants cultivated for their fragrance and beautiful flower in gardens.

They are also used commercially for the production of perfume, commercial cut flower crops and as landscape plants. The rose hip is also used in the production of medicines as a secondary source of vitamin C.

The Rose plant would only do well in a location that provides them with good quality sunshine, enough paces to blossom, well-drained soil and proper shelter to protect them from strong winds.

Give your Rose garden the quality rose care it requires and let it marvel you with its beautiful wonders.
