All About Roses

Growing tips, propagating, pictures, clipart, and lots more! Hundreds of pages of images and information on roses... if we don't have it, then you probably don't need it.

Loveliest of lovely things are they on earth that soonest pass away. The rose that lives its little hour is prized beyond the sculptured flower.
William C. Bryant

Roses come in a variety of shapes and colors. But they are all beautiful in their own way ... or at least I think so! We've got free pictures, wallpaper and clipart that you can download. Plus plenty of hints and expert advice to help you care for the queen of flowers.

Winter is on the way (in the Northern hemisphere), so get ready for pruning your roses. If you are in a harsh climate, then you might want to consider your options with preparing roses for winter.

For those "down under" the blooms are here and you will be busy deadheading. Don't forget to keep those aphids in check! Where ever you are, there's always jobs that needs doing in the rose garden!

I hope you find something on this site that helps you enjoy roses more, whether with pictures, gardening, or advice. We're here to help!

Shrub Roses
This class is a "catch all" for roses that just don't fit other catagories. A bit of a cop out really!

This encompasses varieties such as the Knockout, Drift, and Star roses. Generally very easy care.
Miniatures
A great way to bring your roses indoors or onto the patio. And with a low price, you can have as many as you want!

Wild or species roses. They have a natural simple beauty, with their plain 5 petal flowers and vibrant red hips.
Old Fashioned
This includes varieties such as Alba, Damask, Gallica, Hybrid Perpetual, Bourbons, Moss, and many more.
Rambling Roses
Similar habit to the climbers, but with a few subtle (and important to remember) differences between them.
Floribunda
Well known for their prolific sprays of flowers, the floribundas are a very popular garden choice.
Hybrid Tea
Probably the most popular type in use today. Orignally created by crossing Hybrid Perpetuals and Tea roses.
Climbing Roses
The climbers are not a variety, they can come from different families such as HT's, Floribundas, Antiques etc.
