This type of rose was found by accident in 1867. Soon the public was entranced by its high, tight buds and ability to flower over a long season. They remain the most widely grown rose and are the blooms we associate with cut long-stemmed roses. Pros Flowers are pristine in bud, then looser in flower; climbing forms have longer limbs (called canes) for attaching to trellises or arbors. Cons Bushes can be spindly and gawky, so they need pruning; may be prone to disease or fungi depending on…
