Don’t get stuck with the wrong rose!
It’s easy to get stuck in the idea that the common bouquet of a dozen red roses is the only type out there. Lo and behold there are multitudes of roses that vary in size, shape, ease of care, etc. If roses are something you’re thinking about adding to your garden, it’s important that you choose the right type so you don’t get stuck fighting an uphill battle.
Before you get started on planting your rows of roses, it’s important to note that virtually all roses need at least four hours of direct sunlight every day. If you’re landscaping your yard in Denver where we’re located that might not be too much of a problem. However, if that’s not something your property can offer, then it’s probably time to consider other options.
Other questions you might want to ask yourself: What do I want to get out of my roses? Are you looking for something fragrant? Something that will climb? Ground cover? Making a list of specific features you want your roses to have can help narrow down your search.
How much time are you willing to dedicate to your roses? There are lower maintenance rose options if you don’t want to pay a landscaper or gardener to come tend to them regularly. As always if you’re in the Denver area and have any questions regarding your landscape design feel free to give us at B. Gardening a call! We’ll work with your needs and budget to make sure you get the garden you’ve always wanted.
