Benefits of Planting Roses
Roses are one of the oldest and most loved plants, with some varieties of the so-called “old garden roses” dating back to the Middle Ages.
There’s numerous types of roses, from the long-stemmed beauties seen the florist shops to the wild roses growing along the seacoast and spilling over backyard fences. When compared to other flowers, roses have some distinct, practical advantages that have contributed to their sustained popularity.
One of the many benefits of planting roses is their sheer variety of types and styles. Unlike flowers with more consistent colors and qualities, roses come in a wide range of varieties.
Climbing roses grow on walls or fences up to 12 feet high. Conversely, hybrid tea roses feature long stems and large, fragrant blossoms. The color of roses range from pure white, reds, pinks and yellows to speckled or marbled patterns. Therefore, roses are versatile for gardeners who want to add specific colors to their gardens.
Ease of Growth
Gardeners can grow roses with relatively little effort. This is because roses can grow in many different types of soil as long as they receive adequate drainage.
In addition, roses don’t require heavy fertilization and can tolerate several hours of direct sunlight each day. While too much sun can affect the flowers, it won’t necessarily kill the plant. Some roses, such as climbers, are repeat bloomers and produce new flowers on their own without the need for new planting or special attention.
Roses have modest water needs. Therefore, this reduces their demands on the environment.
Infrequent, thorough watering is best, as this allows the plant to go without water for multiple days in arid regions.
When is the Best Time to Plant Roses?
This is a common question among gardeners. We recommend planting roses after all danger of a hard frost is past, and when the soil is easy to work with.
The best time to plant roses in Bryan/College Station is typically during early spring. This is usually sometime between late February and early April.
