Species RosesOld Garden Roses • Modern Roses

Modern roses were introduced as a class of roses in 1867, with the introduction of a French rose, La France.  Most roses for sale in garden centers and mail-order companies are modern roses.  These roses have been crossed to develop new colors, increased hardiness, disease resistance, and continuous blooming.  Modern roses include hybrid tea, polyantha, floribunda, grandiflora, miniature, and shrub roses.  Modern hybrid tea roses appear at weddings, commemorative events, and on Valentines' Day.

Then we have climbing roses and rambling roses.  The roses on plants with these growth habits have been developed, by breeding, into hearty and beautiful flowers.  Well-known climbing roses are "America," "Blaze," "New Dawn," and "Joseph's Coat."  Use them on an arbor or a wall.
