Tips Index

There are many types and varieties of roses. The most commonly used are:

  • Hybrid Tea - These most widely used roses are usually fragrant and can grow to 4'-5' tall

  • Floribunda - This rose flowers in clusters throughout the growing season. Grow to 3' tall

  • Grandiflora - This rose resembles a hybrid tea rose but grows to 6' and usually has 5-7 blooms to a stem

  • Climbers - These roses include many classes of roses and grow very quickly. They grow between 7' and 20' depending on how they are pruned

  • Shrub Roses - These roses are somewhat smaller in size but are generally easier to care for and they grow generally 2-4' tall depending on the variety

  • Flower Carpet™ Roses are an unusually durable rose that can act as a small flowering shrub or groundcover that will usually bloom continuously from May to Frost. They are extremely disease resistant and require only slight pruning to keep their shape.This plant is a must in every landscape.These roses will also bloom in partial shade

For newly planted rose bushes, add fertilizer after the first blooming cycle and thereafter once a month. Remove spent blooms down to the first five-leaflet leaves, retaining as much foliage as possible.(One exception for required pruning is Flower Carpet™ Rose.)

Bare Root Roses
Be sure to soak the roots of a bare root rose in a root stimulator solution for at least 10-60minutes before planting and prune out any dead canes. If the rose is grafted, consult your HOME & GARDEN SHOWPLACE expert on the correct planting depth in your climate zone.
