The Benefits Of Planting Roses In The Garden

Updated on March 16, 2012

The benefits of planting roses

Roses are beautiful flowers to plant in the garden. Some roses give off lovely fragrances, others don't give off any type of fragrance. Roses bloom in late spring (June). But you can even make the same plant bloom again in late July or early august. If you buy different colors and sizes of roses, you can have a beautiful rose garden with a nice little waterfall or a little pond going through it, with a bench to sit on. This way if you just feel like getting away and relaxing, make yourself some ice tea, put on some relaxing music, and just take in the scented roses and listen to the water and enjoy! This is like having your own paradise without leaving home.

Here are some pictures of roses around a patio and a corner pond between the roses.

.The different kinds of roses

There are a few different kinds of roses you just might want to know before you adventure out to buy some. They are bush roses, shrub roses, miniature roses, tea roses, and climbing roses. These are only a few kinds.

BUSH ROSES - These roses have clusters of flowers on one stem. They form a compact bush and have lots of flowers. These roses are usually grown in beds and borders. They are very hardy roses and they have a strong fragrance. There are two kinds (Hybrids - large flowers and Floribundas - cluster flowers). The difference between the two is the number and shape of the flowers.

SHRUB ROSES - These roses are low maintenance. They grow like a bush and used in flower beds and also used as a hedge. There stems have very prickly hairy looking needles and they have a very mild fragrance. The flowers grow in clusters like the bush rose, but not as many flowers.

MINIATURE ROSES - They can be used in flower beds as a ground covered plant or planted in pots for a balcony, patio, or even inside the home. They have no fragrance.

TEA ROSES - These roses are usually tall and upright and spread out slightly. They have large leaves and one large bloom on top of each stem. They have a strong sweet fragrance and they are a nice cutting rose and are displayed in flower arrangements or put in vases.

CLIMBING ROSES - The fragrance from these roses vary from spicy, and sweet, too slightly and strong or no fragrance at all. These roses are used in climbing on trellises, fences, and walls.

Roses love sun and they also need sand in there soil for drainage and they love to be fertilized and with a fine mist of water on the plant everyday.
