If you liked grandma's roses, you'll love modern hybrid tea roses that blend nostalgia and performance. These rose bushes have improved disease resistance, growth habit, bloom time, color, flower size and more. When adding rose bushes to your garden, consider growth habit, hardiness zone, bloom times, disease resistance, stem length and your personal style. These kinds of flowers perform well in the ground and in containers, making for landscape design flexibility. Their blossoms come in many different sizes and colors, which makes it easy to find the ideal variety to complement other plants in your garden. You may wish to plant a mass of one color of rose bushes, blend different colors through your spaces, or incorporate them in mixed perennial beds.
