Types Of Roses | Volunteer Gardener



it's the peak of Rose season in the garden of Ron Daniels in Hendersonville Tennessee we're going to take a look at a number of types of roses that will perform really well here in the Middle Tennessee area from climbers to miniatures hybrid teas and several other favorites I can't wait for you to see this garden it is prime Rose season here and some of your most beautiful ones are these climbers that are on the fence tell me a little bit about some of these that that you have that are a little bit more tried-and-true okay the new dome for instance is is the rose has been around since 1930 right one of the first hybridized rose and one that rested and it just does well I enjoy growing it because of you see the flowers right lievable but they produce the big flowers and they do repeat bloom sure so and it tastes like it'll take 30 below zero and they'll I mean it just unbelievers – good tough plant in my experience pretty disease resistant also oh definitely definitely requires very little so we're looking for something that will climb and really take up a good amount of space right be tough right a new dawn is a good one right in a lot of people they don't understand they think they're climbers they're really not clamors their trainers right and vines climb but if you train them on a fence row or trellis or up against a building and time off they'll do well so and then the Don wine it's one of my favorite red ones because it has this beautiful beautiful red velvet alright look to it and it repeats bloom – just unbelievable right throughout the summer and then behind us on the Arbor is a really pretty little Rose kind of a nice pink color and little clusters pretty good sized clusters of little blossoms hmm and this what is the name of this one Jeanie Lajoie Jeanie the Joan yeah it's a course of miniature and it's oh it the writing on it is just unbelievable it's like around nine right now where do you say rating what does that well the McEnroe Society has a rating system where they test these roses all over the countries in in people's own personal gardens and I've tested something here myself they rate them according to disease resistant growth patterns of them a flower how they repeat how they withstand our climate right so just lots of good garden quality when they write them what from zero to ten well there's no zero yeah and there's no ten believe it or not if you get something anywhere from seven to nine you've got your Liberty good shape right especially for our climate right this rose I believe it's called Gemini that's right have you found it to be a really good performer here Oh excellent excellent it's excellent show Rose and the great great cut rose what makes a good show Rose well basically the shape of it the center the buds need to be real tight right and have a good oval shape to it and course the foliage plays a part in it also sure these right now I probably wouldn't I'd already cut these right because they are in different stages but this is probably one of the top ten show roses out there right and we had a lot of Blues all over the country a lot of times we hear people talk about a high centered bud which means that this point is way up high and even on some of these that are a little more open you can see that really well that as these petals open that Center stays right up in the top of the road that's what they look for that's what the judges are looking that's what we look for so I show show on a limited level but I mainly show to learn be around Rose people and learn learn more about growing them that's great but when you show it you see the best of the best right all right now this rose that we're looking at is actually a rose that's not on the market yet tell me just a little bit about this one well every year being a consultant rosarian we are supposed to take a rose and plant it in our garden and do a report on them around the quality of it how it performs how it buds the growth pattern and report it back to the American Rose Society which is roses and review right and that's how they come up with their list of roses to recommend to people sure and so this one right here I call it jailhouse rose and it don't have a name yet but to me I like it already so now we're looking at hybrid tea roses which are I think the classic rose that everybody thinks of when they think of roses and and the ones that everybody you know really wants to grow and this is a variety called Dublin and tell me about the roots of this plant because roots are important in roses right well this is on route type of rose which means that it's not grafted as no sighting is on its own route and so it's a great show Rose Dublin has been around awhile and it's in a top-10 also you don't get much bigger than this it'll stay about the same height right up produce some good flowers and sometimes you produce them if you notice it sometimes it produces in clusters it's actually Harbor tea but right sometimes it looks like a floribunda right which it's not so now while we're talking about rootstocks there's a thing that happens in roses where because of being able to produce them quickly they actually graft the rose that you want which might be this one to a different kind of root stalk and for many many years that was the old doctor Hughie rose and various others but something that's come along in the last few years this this next rose uphill just a little bit is a great example and this is grafted to a different type of root stock than we're used to seeing so tell me a little bit about that it's called Fortuny Anna and there's a bunch of people in our society in the National Road society that's switching over to this right CY the plant that we just showed you the Dublin it's it's about three or four years old this is its this is this particular signature it's just two years old right it's done all this growth so it's double the size double the size and you can see the foliage is better I mean it shows better and it does real good really large leaves shiny and glossy and right petunia anna has real small root systems of words they run way out uh-huh instead of going stuff going instead of going deep so I mean I think it gets more of what it needs for us the fertilizer in the water right and so it's a great root stock they grew a lot of these down south run sippy in Florida and it's great it's graduated up here and we'll have success the first year you have them you have to do a little extra winter protection right my question was going to be you know are they is it as hearty as some of the old videos that's about two years okay so it just needs a little more protection on the front end and then after that is a good show you see what you get lievable proof is in the pudding there that's that's a true here you have a bed of miniature roses and for people that don't have a lot of space this might be a might be a good option that's true and miniature roses is the good rose to start out with as a beginner mm-hmm and you grow them in pots or in small areas like I have here sir and they they produce just as good and you don't have to be as particular about the deadhead and you just kind of trim them trim them off and miles bloom right back right they a lot of them have a tendency to bloom more in clusters so when the cluster is finished then you can just cut the whole thing off and right not quite as much individual deadheading maybe as right as with some of the things miniatures have become more popular in the last four or five years even on the show in showing people they have also meant that they have mini Flores I have some many floors to also autumn splendor up here it's a mini Flores I mean they get a little taller right a little bigger flower and we have these great little shrubby kind of miniature roses like gizmo over here which has been a favorite of mine for a long time and good color and lots and lots of flowers right gizmo was awesome it does remind you of a shrub rose but it's actually a minute actually a miniature the roses that are next to us here are shrub type roses and shrub roses have become very popular over the course of the past few years with the introduction of knockout and its brothers and sisters and but this is one that not everybody might be familiar with right what is this one that's called sunrise sunset and it's made come from Bailey's nursery in California and I got it two three years ago and it's supposed to be as resistant to disease as knockouts and I've had it here these plants here three years old right and I just love the colors the colors are beautiful and great big clusters of blooms I mean the bloom clusters on these are huge and it's a little more full flower than the knockouts are and and maybe a little more classic rose absolutely form and then growing next to it is actually a hybrid of the popular knockout rose right it's called homerun and course it only has a 5 petaled price on it but a little more of an old-fashioned plane it is it is and it's it don't get as big as your regular knockouts but it man they do well I mean it have beautiful flower right big clusters and all summer long like the renkotsu repeats real well great now I know that there's a special reason that you grow roses tell me a little bit about why you got into this and what you do with your rose well I've always always been somewhat of a gardener but about 20 years ago I met a man that I named John Curtis who was a local rose arian here in Hendersonville and he kind of introduced me to roses right and and so he had a ministry with him upwards he every just about all the roses grew he give away uh-huh he took them to his local church or when you'd see him out in public he always had roses and and so I've kind of carried that on he's passed on now but right he passed that on to me and I use it my local church in my community and I do show roses occasionally but my main focus is to share roses but what a great thing to be able to show roses and share roses and I think we picked the perfect day to be here in your garden thank you so much very welcome glad to have you here
