Roses for Carefree Beauty
by Ron King
Shrub roses are an easy, colorful choice to use anywhere you would
plant a shrub.
Sturdy and Plant-Friendly
Unlike many roses, Shrub Roses are perfect for planting anywhere.
They're "plant-friendly" and are good neighbors in any
collection of flowers. Shrub Roses are also very winter-hardy, and
they are highly disease-resistant.
These round, easily-maintained bushes are not small, either. Many
older Shrub Roses can grow up to 6 feet in height. If desired, Shrub
Roses can be trained to grow like tall hedges.
Privacy Screen or Hedge
Shrub roses are great as a screen or hedge plant for privacy, as a
border, or a background. Although the flowers from Shrub Roses have
little fragrance, they come in a wide assortment of vivid colors.
Vibrant pinks, reds, whites, and yellows are all common for a shrub
rose's abundant flowers.
