ROSA

The rose is the queen of flowers, the most loved and widely planted shrub in all temperate parts of the world. More than 14,000 varieties are grown. Although mostly deciduous, roses can be evergreen in mild climates. Their stems, sometimes quite prickly, may be erect, arching, trailing, or scrambling. Leaves are divided into three, five, or seven leaflets, usually with toothed margins.

Rosa, Climbing

These are simply rose bushes that produce long, strong canes that will grow upright against a wall or arbor. They do not climb by twining or attachment but must be trained through or tied to their support. There are two types of modern climbing roses: large-flowered climbers (LCLs) and climbing sports of bush roses, such as ‘Cl. Iceberg’ and ‘Cl. Cecile Brunner’. The large-flowered climbers generally produce the most blooms, but the climbing sports have the exquisite flowers of their famous parents. Left to their own devices, many climbers make attractive arching shrubs or even groundcovers.
