Hybrid tea varieties are available in a
wide range of colors, including pure
w' ". and many shades of ~el. yellow,
pink, and orange. All varieties are
good for '- although some have
short stems.
\Most hybrid teas have some fra-
grance. This characteristic, however,
is variable. \N hen fr ',r.., r: is pres-
ent it is us .i,, most intense in the
early tno. ,-, before the fragrant oil
has ev orated from the base of the

lost hybrid teas are winter hardy
in areas where the winter temperatures
i o not ( en go Ibelow zero, but vari-
eties ,'er in cold resistance. In sec-
tions where winters are severe. practi-
cally all varieties need some protection.

Floribundas


i ~ribiuda roses bear their flowers
in clusters, and the individual blooms
of many of hem closely resemble hy-
brid _teas. They are increase', in
popularity, espec. i. for bed plantings
where large numbers of flowers are
wanted. Floribundaas will tolerate more
r. I. than any other type of rose with
the possible exception of some of the
shrub i. '-.

Grcandfioras

Grandiflora roses resemble hybrid
teas in type of bloom--;igl, on lon,'
stems-and in hardiness. Though the
flowers are somewhat smaller than those
of hybrid teas. grandifloras bloom more
abundantly. The flowers are good for
cutting.

Polyanthas

Flowers of polyantha roses are
smaller than those of the i-, ,,difloras






and are Iorne ii in ratllir large clu'cr

in size of ilividuai l fo111s to l mian\
of the climbing rse, to which the toll-
anthas are closely related. 'Ilie poly
anthas are hard) al mayti!\ e g row mn
in many areas where' h)ybri tleas are
difficult to gr, w. Their chief use is il
bed plan tings or in borders will i pren-
nials. IThe are exellelnt for inma
plantings.

Hybrid Perpetuals

Hybrid perpetuals are the June roses
of grandmother's garden. Their
flowers are large. Generally they lack
the refinement of h hybrid teas: an excep-
tion is the white-flowered variety Frau
Karl Druschki, which many consider
the finest while rose in existence.
Prior to the development of modern
hybrid 'teas. hybrid perpetual roses
were verx popular. As their name in-
dicates. they are consider d as ever-
bloo,,II; typos, although most of them
do not bhear c ontinuiouslv through the
group ing season as do hybrid teas.
They usuiall develop la rge vi-g orous

Climbing Roses

Climl: roses include all varieties
tliat pri uIc long canes and require
se srt of support to hold the plants
ui i I molnd. Tlhey are often
trainedii on (cs or trellises, and sonime
1ar uii-u il )tl, s','t)ort to (cover

plaie. Cl/imitg rses are rather


hardy. They are becoming more pop-
ular with the development of finer
varieties.
Climbing roses, like bush roses, are
grouped into several types. There is
much overlapping among types, and
some varieties could qualify under sev-
eral. \ ost rose catalog list the follow-
ing types: Ramblers, large-flowered
climbers, ever-blooiiin,. climbers,
climbing hybrid teas, climbing poly-
anthas, climbing floribundas, and trail-
ing roses.

Ramblers
Rambler roses are very rapid grow-
ers. They sometimes develop canes as
long as 20 feet in one season. The
flowers are small-less than 2 inches
across-and are borne in dense clus-
ters. The plants flower only once dur-
ing a season and on wood that was
produced the preceding year. The
foliage is glossy and the plants are very
hardy, but, unfortunately, many va-
rieties are very susceptible to mildew.
They are l, I;* replaced by other
climbing types that bear 1.i, ,-r flowers
1I!._.' a long growing season and are
less subject to mildew.

Large-Flowered Climbers
Large-flowered climbers grow slowly
in; .,i larison with ramblers. They are
often trained on posts or some other
type of support, and may require
rather heavy annual pruning to keep
them in bounds. These roses are well
,il ,tted to small gardens w here they
may be trained .-. lii:-t a wall. fence, or
small trellis. When the plants are
grownl iell the flower rs are rather large
and are useful for culling. Many va-
rieties do not bloom as freely when the
caues are trained Xerticatll as they do
when cancs are trained horizontally.

Roses _,.i best where they have sunshine all day, but will grow satisfactorily where they have
at least 6 hours of sunshine daily.


Planting Sites

Roses .r'.., best where they have
full sunshine all day. They will grow
satisfactorily, however, if they have at
least 6 hours of sun a day.
If you must plant roses where they
are shaded part of the day and have
a choice as to morning sun or after-
noon sun, plant them where they have
moi ir sun. If plants are shaded in
the morning, their leaves remain wet
with dew a few hours lo.. '-i than if
they were in morning sun. moisturee on
the leaves is favorable for the develop-
ment of several leaf diseases.

*" If witter tr .'. -es do not go

If winter temperatures do not go
below 10, plant in fall or spring.
If winter temperatures regularly
go below 10- plant in spring only.
Some nurseries and garden centers
sell roses that are planted in containers.
These container-grown roses can be
transplanted at any time.



Spacing Plants

Space hybrid teas, grandifloras,
polyanthas. and floribundas about 2 feet
apart in areas where winter tempera-
tures are very cold ( -100 or below),
about 21 feet apart where winter tem-
peratures are moderate (10 to 100),
and at least 3 feet apart where winter
temperatures are mild (above 100).
In all areas. space hybrid perpetuals 3
to 5 feet iprit and climbers from 8 to
10 feet apart.

Cultivating and Mulching

Ci: ate roses carefully: their roots
nmav grow close to the surface and may
be injured b deep cultivation. The
main purpose of cultivation is to re-
move weeds. This can be done by
hand pulling the weeds or cutting them
at the soil surface.
Use a nmulch to aid in controlling
weeds, oniservl ing moisture, and add-
ing fertility Peat. ground corncobs,
groun11d tobacco stems, buckwheat and
colttoseed 111 l. spent Imushroom
mianlre(. and \ ell-rotIted strawy manure
all are effective as inulching materials.

roses, disbud the plants wlhe the buds
are very small. Remove all but the
terminal bud on each stem. Ti r-
terminal bud then develops into a
much larger flower.

cages or bags to protect them from
injury.

Rose Chafer
Yellowish-brown beetles, known as
rose chafers, are often abundant in the
North dl,,,,.- June and early July,
especially in areas of light, sandy soil.
They are about 1,-inch long and have
long spiny legs. I 1 appear suddenly
on rose i. '.i 1 where they feed. They
may destroy the entire flower. For
control use combination spray or 5-
percent DD 'T dust.

;<; ;; i }'(rS or (O Jst


Insecticides are poisonous. Store
them in closed, well-labeled containers
in a dry place where they cannot con-
taminate foodstuff, and where children
or pets cannot reach them. Heed all
precautions on the container label.
Use insecticides only when needed
and handle them *with care. Avoid
repeated or prolonged contact with
skin or inhalation of spray mists; after
using insecticides, wash hands and face
before eating or smoking.
DDT, Kelthane, malathion, and tet-
radifon can be used safely without spe-
cial protective clothing or devices,
provided they are in water-spray form.
Most concentrates, however, require
special precautions. When handling or
mixing concentrates, avoid spilling
them on the skin and keep them out of
the eyes, nose, and mouth. If any is
spilled, wash it off the skin and change
any contaminated clothing immedi-
ately.


Rose Leafhopper
The rose leafhopper, a tiny greenish-
yellow jumping insect, is frequently
found on the underside of rose leaves.
It sucks out the contents of the leaf cells
causi a stippling of the leaves that
resembles injury by spider mites. For
control. use combination spray or ap-
ply 5-percent DDT dust to the under
side of the foliage.

Typical damage caused by the rose midge.


Spider Mites
The two-spotted spider mite and re-
lated species suck the juices from rose
leaves, which soon become stippled. As
the injury progresses the leaves turn
brown, curl, and drop off. When the
mites are abundant they spin a web
over the leaf surface. Infested plants
are unthrifty.
These spider mites usually are
ii I- ~ d with two brown spots, al-
though some are dark red. They are
almost too, small to 1e seen with out a
