"What kinds ends of roses might be easiest to grow for somebody just starting out a rose lover who has been dying to grow some of their own it's funny L. and because we're talking about sensitive plants which is highly different thing later in the program but there's some people who would feel that roses could be called to sensitive plant? Some types types of roses are picky picky picky right Rosa's can be the Prima Donnas of the plant world but they are also one and flower. That pretty much appeals to everyone I for many years was the only person I know who did not like roses and the only reason I like them now is because you can eat. I have no patience. I have no patience for fussy roses that get mildew and leave spot and offense. It's like there are so many other plants and beautiful flowers that you could grow. I'm just not a rose person but I do grow as you know Ruko Cirrhosis. Because because I I love to use their fragrant pedals in their big fat hips in food. But other than that I am. I'm just not a you know I'm not one of those people who want to a Bauer of roses in their garden. I love roses and I like all types of frozen. I don't there are some roses that I choose to grow in some that I don't but let's let's kind kind of break it down. The American rose society uses certain categories of roses. Yeah they are hybrid tea roses grandiflora roses flora abundant Rosa's paulie anthem roses miniature many roses right shrub roses and climbers or rambling rose. And it's confusing. If you're just starting out I remember when I got all of those terms I was like Grand Flora Flora Bundle. What the heck is the difference? Well the most popular class of roses among among people is the hybrid. Tea Rose when most people think of roses. This is what they think of. It's a large bloom. It's got thirty to forty pedals are or more per flower They are often on a slightly longer stem. So they make a good cut flower their new introductions coming along all the time and they come in all kinds of color so many people if they're thinking of a rose this is what they're thinking of is a hybrid. Not Is it the easiest rose on the planet to grow. Oh no no. It is not now a subgroup of hybrid. Teas grandiflora rose. These often grow very tall. Okay and so. They're not suitable for every landscape and and their flowers however appear in clusters rather than individually on the stems again not necessarily the easiest Rosebush to grow floor. Abundant roses are probably the next popular to hybrid teas and the Granda Flora's and it. They also have their flowers. It's in big clusters are And this type of rose. Flora bundler tends to bloom more throughout the season then some hybrid teas grant floors have one period of bloom and then they're done for the year right and they can be glorious when they're they're in that one period of bloom. There's I know it's remarkably impressive when you see that but for people who want bloom throughout the gardening season the floor abundance give you maybe less impact at one moment in time but you do have that continued. Blue and many of them have been bred also to be more disease disease-resistant and more problem free so those people who are kind of gravitating toward the hybrid tea type roses might check into the floor abundance because that might be more satisfying for them in terms of repeat flowering and in terms of ease of growth grow You know the POLLYANNA. Roses are shorter. Those aren't under most people's radar the miniature roses. Those those are the ones that you buy in the supermarket or the garden center with a tiny little flowers and they're kind of cute and most of them are used as gift plants. Listen then they die and people don't usually grow them in their landscape. But you could. You can plant them outside and and oftentimes if they're hardy to your area and that's something you don't always know if you're picking it up in a grocery store but I I have grown many miniature roses that people have given me that. I just couldn't bear to throw away because I'm a big old softy off-duty and they've grown very nicely for me in the garden and because most of them end up about Oh fifteen inches to feet tall at most They make great container their plants. So if you were given one of these miniature roses as a gift planted outside in a pot on your deck or patio and see what happens. Nothing to lose right EXAC- now for the plant new but the variety of roses which are most accessible easy to to grow and disease-resistant are the shrub roses and roses shrub. Roses have taken the country by storm. There are many varieties of shrub. Roses probably right now in this country the most well known is knockout. The knockout series and the knockout is a great rose. But I would urge people not to think that that's the only shrub rose because there are great shrub roses there is the whole. Well you know reducer. Roses are shrub roses. And that's the only rose I grow for for for many reasons fragrant pedals pedals that can be used to infuse cream. Big Rose hips. That can be used in jams and jellies and look hers but also the regatta. Roses are very salt tolerant if you live near a coast or if you plant them near a road that gets salted in wintertime. They are highly disease resistant. Didn't so you're much less likely to get powdery. Mildew or black mold on them and for some reasons. I don't know why But the aphids and the Japanese these beetles D don't seem to at least where I grow them be quite so interested in them. Since I just mentioned where I grow them I want to say that Santa Fe. It's pretty much a rose growers dream as far as climate is concerned because we have excellent air circulation and fairly dry air. We do not on have a lot of high humidity and that that cuts down so so if you're going to grow roses in a dry climate you've got a head start and these shrub roses. This which by the way are also called landscape roses and and I should mention the drift series are great also easy. That's it Oh so easy. Yeah I was trying to think those are great so there are many the flower carpet series from tessler plants wonderful plant dependable bendable productive realize yes continual flowering whether they're dead headed or not although deadheading them does seem to hasten their Repeat flowering just a little bit but if you dead head you get no rose hips. Well that's true but many of the landscape roses don't make rose hips and anyway. Ah that is true and when I am looking for a rose I always ask if the plant makes hips and if by any chance there are forager's out there who are thinking about planting roses houses. That is a question you want to make sure you ask in whatever category. You're looking if you want the rose hips ask I because a lot of these plants either produced these tiny little insignificant hips hips at all. So if you're looking for an easy rose plant gopher the shrubs gopher landscape roses and then you can dabble all in the other varieties as well and do keep in mind that sometimes it's worth it to plant a rose plant and you see what happens and and some of them. Even though they have a reputation of being finicky they can thrive as you say ellen in your climate roses tend to do well so they can sometimes thrive against all odds and as long as you plant them in a place where there is full son and you're attentive to their need for some composter fertilizer. And then you know you'll probably do okay. Hey with them enough to get a lot of pleasure out of these"
