Rose: Is there a more ubiquitous flower for sensory overload than the rose? Beauties include superb looks, a wonderful perfume, wonderful cutting qualities, ease of growth (as long as you mulch well each winter, as these are hungry plants), and, depending on the variety, a lengthy and spectacular flowering season. There aren’t many perennials that can stop you cold, like a fully blooming adult rose meandering over an old outbuilding or scaling the walls of a rural house (or any other house, for that matter). Roses fulfill almost every requirement.

Despite all of their advantages, roses may often be difficult plants to comprehend. To begin with, there are over a hundred species of roses, with hundreds of variants available in almost as many colors. Each species appears to have slightly different needs and behaviors, so when choosing roses, it comes down to choosing the appropriate plant for the right location.

How should I begin? The majority of roses grow as shrubs, ramblers, or climbers; to further complicate matters, certain shrub rose varieties can also be trained to grow in a climbing manner. Woody perennial roses have stems that do not wither away in the winter. As a rose ages, these stems take on a gnarly appearance and become heavier than soft stems, necessitating strong support if the rose is a climber.

Ways to Make Your Roses Last Longer

  • Always use a sharp, non-serrated knife to cut your stems at an angle while submerged in water. This increases the rose’s surface area for absorbing water.
  • Toss the stems in slightly warm water—about 94 degrees F.
  • Never submerge leaves or thorns in water, since this encourages the growth of bacteria.
  • Every day, the water is changed.
  • Every other day, trim the flowers again.
