There are literally hundreds of types of roses that you can grow in your garden. With such a selection to choose from, it can be extremely difficult to choose the rose that’s right for you. To make this task a bit easier, I’ve added some crucial factors that you should consider, and some of the different types of roses to aid in your search.

    • Color may seem like a trivial matter, but it is usually a factor to those that want to grow roses. Usually it is simply a matter of personal preference.

    • The final growth height of a rose should be considered as it would be unattractive to grow roses that are higher than the area of the garden that it grows in. Some roses can grow to be as high as 20 feet.

    • If you live in an area that is prone to cold winters, you would certainly want a rose that could survive during the off season.

    • If certain fragrances invoke an allergic reaction, you would want to plant roses that have a softer fragrance than the others.

    • You would certainly want to learn what the advantages and disadvantages would be if you were to choose certain roses over others.

    • You will want to consider the size of your garden space, so that you can ensure proper exposure to the air and other elements as well.

    • If you are hoping to make your roses into bouquets, you will want to know if they can be cut. Hybrid teas can. Some roses will fall apart at the petals if they are cut.

    • You should also consider what other types of flowers or plants you intend on adding to the rose’s environment. You want to add plants and flowers that will not create a damaging environment to your rose’s ecosystem.
