Shrubby Roses

Shrubby Roses

Shrub roses have a variable habit, but usually reach a height and a diameter of about 1.5 m and are quite suitable for forming hedges, while the varieties with arched stems are usually used for mixed borders. The stems are covered with thorns or bristles, have light green glossy leaves, formed by 5-7 ovate leaflets and serrated at the edges, while the flowers are 5 to 10 cm wide and bloom from May to September, and then bloom again. The pruning of these shrubs is rather light: remove in particular the old and weak wood by pruning it at the base.
