Why The Beauty Of Roses Is Hard To Resist

Aug 17, 2007
Who can resist the beauty of a rose? Its soft delicate petals call to those who see it, begging people to touch them. One of the most prized flowers in a garden, rose varieties exist in abundance. A gardener could plant acres and acres of them, and each rosebush could bear a different color and variety of flower. Royalty and peasants alike have celebrated the scent and delicate beauty of this flower for centuries. No matter their station in life, individuals appreciate the unique and delicate beauty of this coveted flower. Roses still hold importance in flower gardening today.

When a gardener considers whether or not to plant, cultivate, and prune this cherished flower, he has dozens of choices ahead of him. First, he must consider the climate of where he will grow his roses. Roses prefer temperate climates and soil with good drainage. Thirsty plants, these bushes prefer long rainy seasons. If your climate leans towards the hot and dry, search for the rose breed that can withstand your extreme temperatures and lack of moisture. Thanks to scientific technology, rose growers and breeders are constantly working to develop hardier roses that can withstand the extremes of both hot and cold climates.

After finding the best plant for his climate, a gardener must consider the different colors, scents, and sizes available. Breeders grow some roses with their focus only as beauty, and thus the rose might not have a strong scent. And other types of roses emit such a strong scent that their fragrance can fill your yard. In the end, the type of rose depends on the gardener, but the majority of rose gardeners try to find something that has both a pleasant but not overpower scent and a beautiful color.

Colors abound in these plants. From deep magentas to even black, a skilled gardener can coax just about any color of rose to grow. Gardeners will have a variety of hues to choose from when shopping for your rose bushes, so they must pick carefully the one that they think will best complement their garden overall. The right rose has the potential to accentuate both their yard and home in a beautiful way. They may consider a rose that will contrast with their house color and thus stand out in the long run, or maybe they want to stick with a monochromatic theme and shoot for a rose that matches their home perfectly.

Regardless of the color or type, roses will always be a popular flower. Women dream of them, and men fork over a bundle of cash for them. Their finicky climate requirements make them rare, and because of this, the gardeners who grow them appreciate their delicate scent and beauty that makes them so unique.
