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, Floribunda

These are the workhorses of rose gardens, noted for producing large quantities of flowers all summer long. Many have hybrid tea ancestry, evident in the long stems and/or elegant shape of the flowers. Unlike hybrid teas, however, they produce clusters of blossoms rather than a single flower at the end of each stem; this makes them excellent for providing masses of color.

Floribundas are smaller than hybrid teas—both in flower size and in height; use them for informal hedges, for low flower borders, or as container plants. ‘Iceberg’, one of the best-selling roses ever, is a floribunda.
