Shrub Roses - Rose Bushes

see also climbing roses and garden roses

Shrub roses normally do best in full sun all day long, but will bloom nicely if exposed to about 6 hours of sun if it includes mid-day (noon) and early afternoon hours when the sun is at its strongest.  Most shrub roses are easy to grow and require little care, other than regular watering and occasional fertilizing. While they don't require much pruning, you'll still want to remove the faded flowers to keep them blooming over the entire season. A light shearing in late winter or early spring will keep them compact. As they mature you may want to prune back more severely to keep shrub roses in bounds.

Some roses are much less hardy than others and could require extreme winter protection methods while others might be left in place without much worry. There will usually be specific varieties that are more disease resistant, more shade tolerant, more dependable or more hardy or better performing than others. Roses that are well sited, cared for regularly and of carefully chosen varieties will be healthier and live longer.

I have a couple of rose bushes in my backyard and they have survived several years of heavy snow falls in the winter, and severe hail storms in the summer.  I tie them in the fall so the snow won't be so heavy as to push them to the ground or break weaker branches.  They are still gorgeous and produce fragrant rose flowers that turn the whole yard into a scented oasis!  If you put bouquets of roses in a few rooms in your home, they will provide a fresh and delicate smell throughout the house and rainy days are, all of a sudden, not as gloomy.  Fragrant flowers in a house give you a "silent pep talk"!
