Genus Description Rose is a genus of about 150 species of semi¬-evergreen or deciduous shrubs and perennial climbers, some of which have been in cultivation for many centuries. They are found in a wide variety of habitats in Asia, Europe, N. Africa, and North America. Roses have erect, arching, scrambling, or sometimes trailing, often prickly stems. They are grown for their attractive and often very fragrant flowers, borne mainly in early summer and autumn, and sometimes also for their fruits, known as hips. Roses are suitable for a range of garden situations: as specimen plants or standards, for a shrub or mixed border, as hedges, or as climbers to clothe walls, trees, pillars, pergolas, and arbors.
Care Tips
Cultivation Roses tolerate a wide range of conditions, but usually prefer an open site in full sun. They thrive on moderately fertile, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil. The best time for planting is late autumn or early spring, when the ground is not frozen. For best flowering, apply a balanced fertilizer and mulch in late winter or early spring. In spring and summer, apply a balanced liquid. For pruning instructions, see our rose information page.
Pests and Diseases Susceptible to aphids, leafhoppers, spider mites, scale insects, caterpillars, sawfly larvae, cane borers, Japanese beetles, rose stem girdlers, thrips, rose chafers, rose midges, rose slugs, and leaf-cutting bees; rabbits and deer may cause damage. Prone to black spot, rust, powdery mildew, dieback, canker, crown gall, viruses, and downy mildew.
