Introduction to Roses

It's delicate petals and it's rich romantic aroma, nothing quite speaks roses quite like these qualities. I inherited my mother's beautiful roses and these past three years, I started accumulating the knowledge of how to take care of these beautiful flowers. Come with me on this quest and learning experience.

Types of Roses

Shrub Roses
Very hardy, the miniature kind is the hardiest
Hybrid Tea Roses

Tree Roses

in winter weather the roses need to be dug up and stored in a cool garage or basement.

Regions were temperature is below 10F don't plant tea roses and if you do plan to give them winter covering
Rambler Roses

Only need protection under the severest of conditions
