Roses bring style and elegance to any garden, be it large or small. The huge variety includes climbing and rambling roses to cover walls, fences, arches and arbors, roses that grow meters upwards to flower in the canopies of trees, patio roses to grow in containers, ground-cover roses spreading a carpet of low-level flowers and floribunda and hybrid-tea’s for the traditional rose garden. Visually stunning, shrub roses are perfect for a mixed border. Of course, in addition, some of these have rich fragrances, repeat flowering, autumn foliage colour and beautiful winter fruits or hips.
