Floribunda roses appear in clusters on each branch and are usually a smaller flower. They offer long periods of flowering. They are usually more compact in growth habit.Floribunda roses are more suited to pots than the hybrid tea. They can be used to create uniform rows as they can all be pruned to the same height each year and look good in large groupings.Varieties to look out for are: Friesia, Burgundy Iceberg, Courage, Scentimental and Lemon n Lime, amongst many others!
Standard roses are roses that have been standardised, meaning that they are grafted onto a single stem. This stem can come in various sizes from the ground. These roses are good to create features in the garden, they can be put into large pots and also look good planted in a row, down a path or driveway.Iceberg is one of the stand-out standards to look for!
Hybrid tea roses offer a single rose at the end of a long stem, meaning that they are absolutely perfect to cut and have them displayed in a vase in flower arrangements. They are normally a larger rose and quite showy, some may be perfumed.The structure of the hybrid tea rose is tall and upright and they grow better in the ground than in containers. Some hybrid tea favourites are Blackberry Nip, Diamond Jubilee, Loving Memory and Starlight.
Well the name pretty much says it on this one, but yes they are a rose that climbs. They can be trained up any structure such as a fence or pergola. They put on a magnificent show and can look quite effective when entertaining guests. Some of the most popular climbing roses are Azubis, Bantry Bay, Dublin Bay and Sir Edmund Hilary.
