Know your roses

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Fabulous Flowers -

There are so many roses out there to choose from, so check out this break­down for the most com­mon types.

HY­BRID TEAS are the clas­sic roses with a sin­gle large bloom at the end of each long stem on a fairly up­right bush. They flower from spring to early au­tumn.

FLORIBUNDAS are usu­ally lower growing than hy­brid teas with smaller blooms but pro­duce clus­ters of flow­ers on each stem from spring to au­tumn.

DAVID AUSTIN or English roses have been bred to of­fer old-fash­ioned scented blooms with the added bonus of re­peat flow­er­ing.

CLIMBERS range from enor­mous and vig­or­ously climb­ing plants to more pe­tite, long-limbed stems. Ram­blers are a sub­group of climbers, with smaller flow­ers in large clus­ters, that only flower in spring.
