  • What are the different types of roses?

    Floribunda

    Make any landscape designs stand out with the most colorful of rose types. Developed during the last century, these bushy shrubs have the large, showy blossoms of the hybrid teas, but bloom more freely, setting clusters of three to fifteen blossoms rather than a single bloom on a stem. Floribundas are versatile; an individual shrub will fit easily into almost any sunny border planting. However, they are perhaps most striking in mass plantings.

    Hybrid Tea

    One of the most popular rose types, these are tall, long-stemmed roses ideal for cutting--the roses you usually see at the florist. The flowers are usually borne singly, one to a stem, rather than in clusters. Blooms have a high-center point. In the garden they are often featured as single specimens or in a traditional rose cutting garden. Many varieties reveal a beautiful fragrance.

    Grandiflora

    A grandiflora is a cross between a floribunda and a hybrid tea. Grandifloras are tall elegant plants which bloom repeatedly during the season, and generally feature classic hybrid tea flower clusters with stems which are slightly shorter than those of hybrid teas.

    Shrub & Landscape

    These roses have changed the way many people view roses. Shrub roses, especially when compared with traditional varieties, are impressive for many reasons: their natural disease-resistance, their willingness to grow in a variety of climates with a minimum of attention from the gardener, their compact growth habit (very little pruning required), not to mention the great beauty of their flowers, which are borne consistently over a very long season. Coming in all shapes and sizes, shrub and landscape roses work well in any landscape. Landscape roses grow close to the ground, like ground cover, and have a very spreading habit.

  • Climber

    Climbing roses help dress up any garden. They produce long, arching canes with numerous flowers that can be trained to a trellis, fence, or other supporting structure. Grow them up and over an arching trellis to make a striking entryway; train them up a lattice to adorn a plain wall. 

    Miniature

    Perfection on this scale can't fail to captivate! Miniature roses are the smallest of rose plants, growing anywhere from six inches to two feet tall. This rose type is hardy, flowers continuously and is perfect for container gardening, make lovely borders, and solve the space problem for those with a small yard or balcony. Miniatures are grown on their own root.

    Tree Roses

    Tree roses are made up of a hardy root stock grafted to a long stem that is, in turn, grafted to a rose bush at the top of the stem. They are very elegant lining a walkway or as a feature amongst other plantings. The tree rose is a lovely addition to the garden, but extra care is needed to insure its survival over winter. We have an excellent selection of colors in two different sizes 24” at $34.95 and 36” at $44.95. Many people will leave the tree rose in a container on the patio all summer long.

  • Basic Pruning Most roses can be pruned quite easily. Allow the plant to grow and fill out during its first and second years. At the end of the third season, shear off the top third of the plant, trimming all branches to achieve a uniform shape. To encourage new blooms, trim away old flowers as they fade throughout the blooming season.

    In additon to the steps outlined below for hybrid tea roses, click here for more tips based on other rose class.

    Step 1 Examine the rose for sucker growth (any shoot that grows below the bud union – occurs on grafted roses only). If suckers are present dig down and pull them out from the root. Suckers rob the plant of its strength.

    Step 2 Remove dead wood (distinguishable by its darker color) and broken or diseased canes. Prune 1⁄4" above an outfacing bud, 2"-3" below the damage.

    Step 3 Prune away weak or spindly canes, leaving the stronger ones to grow. If canes are crossed or badly congested, remove the smaller, weaker canes. This will strengthen remaining canes and preserve the health of the plant.

    Step 4 Prune all remaining canes to maintain a rounded form and encourage growth. Cut 1⁄4" above the nearest outfacing bud at the height you desire. For larger blooms, leave 3-5 canes and prune back to 12"-18" high. For more blooms and a larger shrub, leave 5-12 canes and prune to 1⁄2 -2⁄3 of present height.

    Pruning Tools: Use any pruning shears

    designed for roses. A 2" blade works best, or use a long-handled lopping shears for larger, more mature canes.

    When to Prune:

    The best time to prune is late winter, before new growth starts in the spring, sometime after the last hard frost. Do not prune once new growth is 2" -3" long. Fall pruning is necessary only when plants are extremely tall, to prevent wind damage during winter.

    What to Prune:

    Weak, diseased or winter-damaged wood, which looks brown and dry on the outside, should be removed 1 -2 inches below the damage. Also remove any branch crossing or rubbing another — always leave the newest, healthiest cane.

    Pruning for Show-Quality Blooms:

    If you choose to grow your rose plants to produce fewer but larger, show-quality blooms, prune according to the illustrated steps. Always trim away old flowers as they fade to encourage new and larger blooms.

    ocean, riding a fantastic crest of wild raging blooms.

    horticultural traditions. Raised in Laos and educated in Taiwan, Ping got his first American job

    in San Francisco. Now, after years of study and training in every aspect of rose breeding, mar-

    keting and production, he is Rose Research Director for Bailey Nurseries, leading an award

    winning Oregon-based rose breeding program.

    At Bailey Nurseries Ping oversees the cross breeding, testing and evaluation of thousands of

    seedlings per year. Only a few of the strongest survive the rigorous selection process to be intro-

    duced to the commercial market, and the quality of those selections has made them famous. In

    2002 Bailey Nurseries introduced ‘Love and Peace’™, the result of work by Ping and his men-

    tor, Jerry Twomey. The rose was a success, winning the prestigious All America Rose Selections

    award. In 2005, Ping Lim won the same award for ‘DayDream’™. Now, only four years after

    his first introduction, the rose breeder has produced Easy Elegance®, a line of twenty-five new,

    own root roses.

    Producing strong new roses means finding strong parent roses. Like many dedicated plantsmen,

    Ping is always on the lookout for those parents, and he has traveled far and wide in search of

    new rose species to use in his breeding efforts. His Asian heritage and fluency in Asian lan-

    guages and dialects have made it easy for him to work in China and other Asian countries,

    where scores of species roses await discovery. To date, Ping has brought thirty-five previously

    Shurb: Deep pink with lighter reverse

    It’s a party because of the old-fashioned bright

    pink blooms that arrive in showy clusters. It’s har-

    dy because it was bred in Canada & has proven to

    be perfectly adapted to harsh winters. It survives

    shrubby full plant keeps its clean green foliage top

    ‘Floriferous’ falls flat when it comes to describing how

    much this little honey can bloom. This vigorous plant

    sets humongous clusters of flirty flowers, nearly cov-

  • The Knock Out Rose Family: the new generation of disease resistant continu-

    ous blooming shrub roses!

    Without a doubt Bill Radler has revolutionized the concept

    of what great garden roses should be, hardy, disease-free

    and floriferous, with the development of the Knock Out

    rose. Many gardeners concur that he single-handedly

    brought rose genetics from the 20th-century into the 21st-

    century. ‘Knock Out’, Bill Radler's first commercial rose

    breeding success and a 2000 AARS winner, has broken all

    records for sales of a new rose.

    Background of the Knock Out Rose:

    Knock Out rose was developed by long-time Wisconsinrose

    breeder William Radler. William Radler began first working

    on his breeding efforts for the Knock Out rose about 20

    years ago in the 1980's. His focus was on developing a re-

    peat blooming rose that was highly disease resistant and

    cold hardy. In the early stages of his breeding career, he

    raised about 600 seedlings a year under fluorescent lights

    in his basement.

    In 1988, Radler crossed seedlings of Carefree Beauty and

    Razzle Dazzle, both hardy roses with good disease re-

    sistance. In 1992, the Conard-Pyle Company / Star Roses

    began testing the plant. In 2000, it won the prestigious All

    -America Rose award, and the company introduced it that

    same year. Knock Out quickly became the fastest selling

    new rose in history, with 250,000 sold the first year alone.

    William Radler has continued his efforts and work on the Knock Out rose developing new sister varie-

    ties that include: Double Knockout, Double Pink Knock Out, Sunny Knock Out and Rainbow Knockout.

    Appearance of the Knock Out Rose:

    Knock Out (PP 11,836 cut. ‘Radars’) is a shrub rose that grows about 3 feet tall and wide. It produces

    terminal clusters of single, 3-inch diameter cherry red blooms. As long as it continues to grow through

    the summer, it will continue to bloom. Some claim it’s one of the longest

    blooming roses on the market. It’s not well suited for use as a cut flower and

    the blooms only have a light tea rose fragrance. Forget about ever having to

    care for this rose with its bullet-proof foliage that completely repels Blackspot

    and mildew and its compact shape that only requires an annual trim to stay

    neat and clean. Periodic dead-heading of spent blooms will encourage this pro-

    lific bloomer to continue providing you with a colorful show all season long.

    Uses for Knock Out Roses:

    Knock Out Roses really shine when used as flowering hedges, foundation plants in perennial beds and

    borders, in a large patio container or adjacent to an entryway. The compact shape and form of the

    Knock Out rose works well with ornamental grasses, evergreens and other ornamental plants. Our

    nursery is located in a USDA zone 5b gardening zone and we have had Knock Out roses blooming well

    into November!

  • Shrub - Showy flame red

    This flame-red offspring of the famous Knock Out® (cv. RADrazz) kicks the competition up a notch when it comes to disease resistance. Home Run® has a phenomenal fortitude against the dreaded black spot (like its father). But, unlike Dad, it is also completely resistant to powdery mildew & has a much higher level of tolerance to downy as well. Rounded, bushy, fast-to-flower and nearly always in color, it hits a grand slam in the landscape & scores lots of points in a pot, too.

    When you got something as good as Home Run, it’s a

    great surprise to discover a match. Identical in every

    way except for the flower color…& that color is soooo

    sweet. Like ‘Dad’, she KO’s the competition when it

    comes to complete black spot AND complete powdery

    mildew resistant. Good from coast to coast.

    Oso Happy®

    Roses Sometimes a plant name

    is about more than just

    the plant itself. We think

    Oso Happy® is a good

    example of this, for if there

    was ever someone who

    was truly happy about his

    work, it would be rose

    breeder David Zlesak.

    David’s run for the roses was inspired by a

    newspaper article about Knock Out® breeder Will

    Radler. Mr. Radler introduced young David (13 at

    the time) to a local rosarian, Elton Strack, who

    encouraged him to look beyond the showy hybrid

    teas in garden catalogs and consider hardier

    species. And when we say hardy, we mean it:

    David grew up in Wisconsin and has done much

    of his plant breeding in Minnesota. It was in

    Rhinelander, Wisconsin that he selected the

    R. polyantha lines that eventually found their way

    into the Oso Happy® series.

    “I continue to love and work with polyantha roses

    because I love their habit and abundant blooming".

    David is quick to credit those who helped him

    realize his dreams of breeding a better rose:

    experienced plant breeders, generous nursery

    supervisors and kind landlords have all helped

    him along the way.

    “Breeding roses and all the wonderful people I’ve

    met and things I’ve learned kept me inspired to

    pursue horticulture for my profession.”

    Now he inspires the next generation of

    horticulturists as a teacher at UW-River Falls.

  • IT'S THORNLESS! Panicles of single, hot pink flow-

    ers are long-blooming, flowering from June to

    frost. This disease-resistant rose holds up to black

    spot very well, and is an excellent plant for integrating

    into mixed borders. Bred by David Zlesak of Minne-

    sota, it is very winter hardy.

  • This variety rebels against the idea that roses are hard to

    grow! No spraying, no deadheading, just lots of flowers

    all season long!

    Similar to 'Peace' in its coloration, Italian Ice's orange

    buds open to soft yellow flowers melting into pink

    blushed margins. The soft flower color is set off nicely

    by its dark green, glossy foliage. Flowers are semi-

    doubled, with 24-30 petals per bloom. This self-cleaning

    rose has excellent disease-resistance, abundant flowers,

    and a nice habit, making it an excellent plant for home

    gardens.

    ty Rock & Roll as its ‘father’! Coincidence or destiny? It is

    a true ‘diamond’ bloomer producing numerous sizeable

    We love this pretty Floribunda type which

    throws cluster after cluster of large, bright yel-

    low blooms (up to 4 inches in diameter) for a

    long season of color. Softly spiraled buds open

    to fully double, ruffled flowers with 20 to 30

    petals. Plants are rounded and bushy growing

    2- to 4-feet tall with rich glossy green foliage

    accented by dark red new growth that compli-

    ments the flower color. A truly great rose

    whose enthusiasm for blooming reflects its

    parentage, which includes the All-America

    Rose Selections winner 'Julia Child'.

    Schroeder’s Flowers would like to thank Weeks’ Roses, Star Roses, Proven Winners, and Bailey’s Nursery for the information & pictures used.

    'Oh My!' is right. You just can't miss this floribunda in a classic,

    awarded not with single blooms, but large clusters of long-lasting,

    red, ruffled blooms that really 'pop' against the glossy, reddish-green

    foliage with good disease resistance. The upright, bushy plants are

    grand enough to stand alone but are also perfect for bold, flowering

    hedges or showy mass plantings. Cooler temperatures bring out the

    best flower form, but who needs form when you have that fantastic

    color?

  • Certain to become a condimental favorite…slap a

    layer of the brightest red onto a backside of darkest

    yellow & set it atop the greeniest glossiest leaves.

    The combo makes your eyes blink in disbelief. Bet-

    ter yet, the flowers hold on to their attention-getting

    tones to the very end…dropping from the well-

    behaved rounded plant just in time to welcome the

    next round of abundant bloom. Tidy enough to tuck

    into a landscape, lend an accent to a container or top

    green leaves. Tuck this little gem into any land-

    scape or use her in a patio planting where her

    beauty and fragrance can be admired up close.

  • Miniature - Orange-pink & glowing yellow

    Miniatures usually have a certain quota of

    ‘cutesy’ but Tiddly Winks may go a little over-

    board. Yet it’s more than just a cute little ball of

    clean green fluff. It’s a flowerful garden work

    horse pumping out clusters of shapely double

    blooms. Very pointed buds of deep gold unfurl to

    show a glowing orange-pink interior with a sur-

    prising yellow ‘eye’. The long-lived blossoms

    are set against very bright green leaves. Tidy,

    round & compact – it’s easy to tuck into a con-

    tainer or let loose in the landscape.

  • English Roses:

    These roses have a stronger survival rate than the previously mentioned roses. Good results have been reported with a minimal amount of protection such as following steps 1 - 4. Some

    people have had a high survival rate just raking a good amount of leaves around the plants.

    Climbing Roses: Follow steps 1 - 3 then lay all the canes to the ground and hold with wire pins or notched

    stakes. Cover the entire plant (canes and all) with several inches of soil, bark mulch or cocoa bean mulch. After the soil or mulch has frozen cover the soil with marsh hay or straw. Remove the mulch on a gradual basis in the Spring after danger of frost. NOTE: Schroeder’s Plant Doc-tors recommend winter hardy shrub/climber roses do not need winter protection: Henry Kelsey,

    William Baffin, John Cabot, from the Explorer Series.

    Tree Roses: Option #1: You planted the tree in the ground:

    After three 28 degree frosts, dig carefully under the roots on one side of the plant until the plant can be completely laid on the ground. This must be done very carefully to prevent breaking all root connections with the soil. Cover the entire plant with several inches of soil or bark mulch.

    After the soil or mulch freezes, cover with marsh hay or straw. In the Spring after danger of frost, gradually remove the mulch and set the plant upright.

    Option #2: You left the tree in it’s pot:

    After three 28 degree frosts dig a trench in an empty space in the garden 8 inches deep and long enough to fit the height of the rose and pot. Lay the rose in the tench and cover with an old

    sheet, then cover with the soil removed from the trench. After the ground has frozen rake over with leaves or cover with straw or marsh hay. Dig up in the Spring after danger of hard frost is past. NOTE: Make sure to mark where the rose is so as not to accidentally cut it in half in the

    Spring!

    Option #3: You left the tree in it’s pot: After three 28 degree frosts, bring the pot into an attached unheated garage. Wrap the entire plant, pot and all, with old sheets or burlap and set up on blocks so it’s not sitting on the cold

    floor. Make sure to water well before storing and check monthly if it needs to be watered. Re-move from the garage after danger of hard frost in Spring. NOTE: This is the least effective of

    the three options. Rose survival rate is not 100%.

    Shrub Roses:

    Hybrid Rugosa roses do not need winter protection. Other shrub roses could benefit from a mound of bark mulch placed around the base of the plant 4-6 inches deep after three 28 degree frosts. Be sure to remove the extra mulch in the spring after danger of a hard freeze has passed.

  • Winter Care of Roses

    Winter protection is important to make sure your plants are healthy going into winter. Healthy plants have a better survival rate during our severe winters. In the fall, leave the last blooms on the plant so hips will form (decorative seed pods). When the rose has hips, growth will slow

    and dormancy will prevail.

    WINTER PROTECTION FOR:

    Hybrid Teas, Floribundas, Grandifloras and Miniatures : 1. After 3 frosts of 28 degrees, tie all the canes together to protect them from wind damage.

    NOTE: Do not prune rose bushes in the fall.

    2. Sanitation practices play a big part in raising roses. Remove all diseased leaves from the plant and ground area during the growing season and before winter dormancy to prevent re-

    infestations of pest and fungal organisms. If recycling rose collars, be sure to disinfect them before use so diseases harbored from the previous year, do not reinfect the plants.

    3. Apply systemic insecticide and fungicide to the rose canes and soil surface until the first frost. This will provide the plant with some protection against fungal growth over the winter. You can also use a dormant oil spray. Which will act as a protective coating on the plant, to

    also help prevent fugal growth.

    4. Cover the crown of each plant with a soil, bark mulch, or cocoa bean mulch mound approxi-mately 10 inches high to protect against frequent temperature changes and extreme cold, which

    will injure your roses. Schroeder’s Plant Doctors recommend using a rose collar, which is 9 inches high and 12 inches wide to prevent the mound from spreading out and not giving the proper insulation for the roses. Or you can construct your own collar. If you are using rose

    cones, you can prune just enough to get the roses under the cone. The soil or mulch should be mounded as mentioned in step #4 - make sure there are holes in the top and side of the cone to

    provide air movement. NOTE: There are limited results with using rose cones.

    5. After the mound has frozen in the late fall, generally around Thanksgiving, pile marsh hay, straw or leaves over the mounded canes and between the rose bushes. Hold the material in

    place by covering with some soil. These materials help keep the soil temperature constant pre-venting premature thawing and re-freezing resulting in heaving of the soil which snaps the

    roots. NOTE: Remove the mulch in the Spring, on a gradual basis, after danger of severe frost is past to prevent damage caused by poor air circulation.
