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 (Grandiflora)

Grandifloras bear large flowers in large clusters. They are taller than hybrid teas, sometimes reaching 8–10 ft. tall, so place them at the back of a flower bed; they also make useful barrier plants.
