Shrub (pink) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Shrub , shrub or rose park is a group of modern rose garden cultivars. All kinds of roses, both ancient and modern, have shrub forms (See the difference with the group of cultivars Climber (pink), which despite the name are semitrepadoras or supportive forms.)

Shrub forms cover a few unique and repeated flowering cultivars, as well as modern roses that do not fit into other categories.

Many cultivars located in other groups of cultivars are placed simultaneously in this group.

Rose bushes classified as shrubs tend to be robust and of informal developmental habit, so they are recommended for use in a border of mixed shrubs or as a cover.


The shrub roses are a very peculiar group within the Modern Rosales, since they are more similar to the Rosales Antiguos.

They are presented as large forests. Their height usually varies between 1.5 and 2.5 m, reaching almost the same width.

They present simple flowers to full double, arranged in solitary or in clusters. Most of them are reminiscent, that is to say they return to flower in the year.

Roses are developed in summer and autumn.

They are usually used as isolated specimens on the lawn, or associated with shrubs other than rose bushes. Also as free flowering hedges that produce a visual impact.

They are also grown in deep pots or flower beds to decorate terraces. Roses will grow very well almost anywhere outside the tropics.

In hot, dry climates they thrive and flourish so much that they tend to have a shorter life, especially if they are not allowed a break in summer. If they are deprived of water they will enter into a state of rest and they will lose the leaves in summer, but they will flower again in autumn.

The annual pruning should be light and should consist of trimming to 3 or 5 buds what has grown in the year, and suppress by the base all outbreaks that are weak or poorly formed. If they have aged the main branches (they give few flowers already) they renew themselves replacing them progressively by young stems.
