Roses offer colors, perfumes, forms, and habits to suit every garden situation. The tenacious efforts of breeders have yielded Roses with the best attributes of different varieties in new forms. Hybrid Teas, lovely as ever, now combine long bloom periods with the vigor to shrug off pests. Shrub Roses bloom for months, rather than weeks, in addition to their ever-appealing hardiness and longevity. A new group is so exceptionally long-blooming and carefree that they are simply called “Landscape Roses.” In short, these are not your grandmother’s, or even your mother’s, finicky Roses. Simply choose according to your circumstances. Roses require six or more hours of direct sun per day and a fertile, reasonably moist soil.
