5 Things To Consider -
When Selecting A Rose For Your California Landscape


Lovely Red Rose
      • 1. Location and Space – The size of the rose you can grow depends on the amount of space you can devote to it. If the space you have is large or would benefit by a rose as a focal point, Grandiflora varieties would be a great choice for you. Smaller areas or areas that are limited by space, Floribunda or Hybrid Teas would be a good fit. Perhaps you have an area that could use a little extra height – 36” Tree Roses are always stunning. Smaller spaces, such as a patio, balcony, container garden, a 24” Patio Tree Rose will make a statement. And finally, if you are looking for a rose that is low growing, consider carpet roses for ground cover, borders, mass plantings, or in containers.
      • 2. Climate – While we only carry plants that will do well in the Bay Area, we do experience micro-climates so a rose that might do well in one area, may not be the best choice for all areas of the South Bay. Talk with our trusted garden advisors to find the rose that will thrive in your garden.
      • 3. Color – While this is more of a personal preference and for aesthetic purposes, selecting a rose based on color is important. We have an incredible selection of roses so finding the rose to match you, should be a breeze.
      • 4. Scent – This may a pleasant perk to narrowing down your rose choice. Some roses have a strong fragrance, while others have little or no scent at all.
      • 5. Care and Maintenance – Roses these days are not like your Grandma’s roses of yester-year, they are disease resistant and with a little fertilizer and pruning, they are easy to care for. However, there are some varieties that are simply carefree and colorful. If this is a quality you prefer, Knock Out® Roses and Carpet Rose Varieties are the selection for you.

Grandiflora vs. Floribunda vs. Hybrid Tea Roses


Grandiflora Roses

Grandiflora

The Grandiflora comes as a result of crossing a Floribunda with a hybrid tea rose. They are on the large side, growing to heights of 4 to 5 feet tall. Grandifloras are often thought of as the most popular variety of rose. The grandiflora rose bush likes to grow tall and will usually exceed all other roses in height other than the climbers, of course.

Floribunda

Just as the name suggests, they produce an "abundant" of blooms. They may have single or semi-double flowers that can be either cup shaped or flat. Plant it in a slightly acidic soil and give it plenty of love and you will enjoy beautiful blooms for years to come. Most Floribundas are smaller than Hybrid Teas

Roses

Hybrid Teas

The hybrid tea rose’s blooms are usually what come to mind when most anyone thinks of roses. These beautiful high centered classic beautiful blooms. Hybrid tea roses grow from 3 to 7 feet tall and 3 to 5 feet wide, depending on the cultivar.


Planting and Care:

Roses

    • Plant in full sun (an area that receives a minimum of 6 hours)
    • Don’t crowd your roses when you plant - they prefer some airflow which will help to prevent diseases
    • Much mulch appreciated. A couple of inches of mulch over the soil and the roots of your soil will help to deter weeds, keep diseases from splashing up on the leaves of your roses and holds moisture.
    • Compost - A healthy layer of organic material such as compost will encourage beneficial microbes and improve and maintain the health of your roses
