Hybrid Tea - Long stems, nicely shaped medium to large blooms with many petals. Grafted onto roots of wild roses. Must be covered in winter in our zone.
Floribunda - Bears flowers in clusters with several blooms open at a time. Blooms throughout the summer.
Grandiflora - Large floribunda with nicely shaped hybrid tea like blooms.
Miniature - Leaves and flowers small. Plant will grow to approximately 15" in height.
Shrub - Related to a wild rose. Usually fewer petal counts. More hardy in winter in our zone. Easier upkeep. Repeat bloom.
Climbers and Ramblers - If tied to a support, can be made to climb. Ramblers have long pliable stems with small flowers and a single bloom period. Climbers have stiff stems with larger flowers and repeat flowering.
Site - Roses need plenty of sun. Less than 6 hours of sun a day can cause legginess, fewer flowers and more disease problems. Avoid waterlogged soil and allow for good air circulation. Avoid planting new roses in soils that have grown roses for more than 10 years. Amend your soil with compost, peat moss, or well-rotted manure to obtain a soil high in organic matter.
Mulch - A 2 to 3 inch layer of bulky organic material placed on the soil surface around plants keeps soil moist during hot, dry periods; reduces weeds; improves soil structure as mulch breaks down; and reduces black spot. Keep mulch away from the crown of the rose.
Pruning - Gets rid of old, exhausted wood and promotes development of strong, healthy stems (see Steps 1 and 2 below). Make clean, sloping cuts just above an outward dormant bud.
Step 1. Cut out dead, damaged, or diseased wood. The cut surface should be white. If it is brown, the tissue is dead or dying and the stem should be cut back farther until the cut surface is white.
Step 2. Cut out very thin stems, branches that rub, and suckers. The goal is to have an open-centered plant. This allows for good air circulation and gives the plant an attractive shape. Up to one-thrid of the stems can be removed yearly without damage to the plant.
Watering - During dry weather, too little water will impair growth and result in small blooms and an early end to flowering. Newly planted roses need to be watered often and thoroughly, as well as roses planted against walls or in sandy soil. However, roses do not like a waterlogged area.
Feeding - For the best performance, feed your roses with a good all around rose fertilizer every year, once in early spring as leaves are starting to unfurl, and once in late June or early July. The three major components in fertlilzer are nitrogen (which stimulates leaf and stem growth), phosphate (which stimulates root and flower growth), and potash (which helps produce top quality blooms and improves disease resistance). The remaining minor components such as copper, iron, manganese, and zinc help with disease prevention and overall general plant health.
Problems - Not every problem is caused by bugs or disease. Many problems are caused by weather, lack of nutrients, drift from lawn or weed spraying, and poor management.
Diseases - The three main rose diseases are powdery mildew, black spot and rust. Feeding your roses yearly to maintain vigorous growth is the best disease prevention. However, if serious problems persist, you may want to use a systemic drench in the soil or a foliar spray to help control insects or disease. Use for Systemic soil drench -Rose Rx Systemic Drench by Bonide or All-In-One Rose and Flower Care Systemic By Bayer Advanced and for Foliar spray - Fung-onil by Bonide or Rose Rx by Bonide. These are available at Jolly Lane Greenhouse.
