This rosebush

with a strange name - shrab

Sometimes higher, sometimes lower,

But it is always beautiful and not weak.

slightly inclined downwards,

On each shoot a bunch,

He whispers: "I - Pure caprice."

And in this there is no doubt.

Roses shrab

Roses shrab (Shrub) - the most complex and heterogeneous systematic unity in the international classification of modern garden roses.We are talking about the roses, which Russia was called polupletistymi, although this term as a bad translation of «Shrub» today only remember the fans rose with years of experience, in contemporary literature and magazines on gardening topics, these roses are called shrabami.

shrabov preceded appearance of the need for them.Landscape architects and landscapers need more volume, natural forms and making demands permanent decoration, disease resistance and high winter hardiness.Today shraby are fertile material for landscape designers and represent a serious alternative to other ornamental shrubs, many of which did

not meet our expectations.Decorative shrabov high and constant care is minimized, and the range of possibilities in the design of the garden is huge.They are suitable for creating colorful dense hedges, decorate unattractive walls of buildings, they are planted in mixed borders, groups and arrays, and attractive habit some varieties can be used in their soliternyh landings.Shraby provide excellent material for home and flowers, especially when their flavor is not inferior to perfection flowers.

Collection shrabov

decades shrabov group formed of the novelties, which by its characteristics could not be attributed with certainty to other known classes of garden roses.Gradually, the group filled with bulky shrubs, groundcover roses shape and varieties of English breeder David Austin.Recent today are called "English rose", although formally remain "attributed" to this class.Without a coherent ordering of garden roses in some sense can not do without it is impossible to judge the merits of a particular cultivar, its use cases in the garden and farming practices.International classification of garden roses adopted in 1976, and rosarian many countries in varying degrees, hold her, in our country it has been repeatedly published.

Some plants even at different volatility and a tendency to give more or less stable form, it is almost always the case for young (recently formed) species.Noticeably this is different from others and the genus Rosa, not by chance that botanists called Rose.

Discussion classification of imperfection - the theme for professionals and place for such discussions - in the literature.For the average amateur roses is important to know which of the famous garden groups (classes) they belong to the selected variety, because it is - the key to pruning.Karl Line, the Swedish naturalist, creator of the system of flora and fauna noted: «Nomna s nescs, pert et cognto rerum» (if you do not know the name, shall die, and the knowledge of things).

Suppose we have oriented in a variety of roses and tie a colorful appearance of your garden with a group of shrabov, and since Russia - not the manufacturer rose seedlings, and their consumer, the choice of varieties of roses begins with an introduction to the catalog of foreign companies.And not always find sections or series under the title «Shrub».Due to certain traditions, or for some other reasons, perhaps, of a commercial nature, some companies do not adhere to the international classification to fully and call Roses otherwise.To affect this, we can not yet, but would like to see every fan could easily find a hybrid tea rose, floribunda rose shrab or in the catalog of any company present on the market.To catalog companies, already familiar to Russian consumers rose seedlings, fans have found their approach.In the catalogs of the German company W KordesSohne volume shraby to be found in section shrub roses, and the French company directories Melland Star Rose - amidst landscaped (landscape) roses.Such skills are not enough to find in the catalog companies shraby Delbard.I confess that the first time it's me too, failed, although a newcomer himself no longer believe.

Company Delbard directory is collections of roses (series), which may include different varieties of garden groups (classes).For example, a fine collection of artists roses (Les Roses des Pentres) combines hybrid tea roses and floribunda.still practiced a different approach to the pruning of roses, although the difference is insignificant in Russia.Shrabov a bit, but they are "scattered" in various collections, sometimes combined with roses floribunda on the principle of the use of the landscape, and it is very uncomfortable, because in this case the difference in pruning is already significant.Sometimes the collection is a tempting title as Les Sauvageons (in translation - "wildings") that immediately recollect species roses.Of course, this is not the wild roses and cultural copra, some signs to remind originagoram natural species.

What shrabov varieties suitable for the garden?

Among the variety of modern shrabov can select varieties for gardens of various styles, but now fashion brings us to the natural gardens where harmonious mostly species (wild) roses with spreading shrubs and simple flowers.Although natural species have undeniable advantages, but poor color gamut, a short (often single) flowering abundance of sharp spikes will suit not every lover of roses.Shraby Delbard companies provide an excellent opportunity to implement the ideas of natural garden, they say originators, created "on the nature of the sample."Not to be biased, but even a small collection shrabov can see the special charm and tradition of originality inherent in all roses companies Delbard.

Which rose collection Delbard shrabami should be considered?It is, first of all, all sorts of series devoted to the great chefs (Les Crands Ches), and a series of hardy roses (Sans Souc), which is a closer look on.Of the different series to shrabam possible about gnost the following varieties: Bouquet Vanlle (1993), Carmagnole (1989), Ctron-rese (1998), Coeur arouche (1993), rondeuse (1994), Pars 2000 (2001), Pmpren-eUe (1997), Sorbet rambose (1994), Sorbet Peche Abrcot (2004), Pur Caprce (1997), Vanlle-Groselle (2000).Company Directories change every year, perhaps in the future we will see not only new products, but also the variety of the range of previous years.

First, select from those varieties of roses, which represent volumetric shoots bushes rigid with height of 1.2 to 1.7 m, - they are not in our climate annual avoid excessive pruning.Before winter shelter need to trim all neodrevesnevshie (grassy) part of the shoot, and the rest of the hive should be slightly hide until spring.The plant budeg have an optimal (for. This group of roses) form, if, after the spring pruning will keep two-thirds of what it was at the end of last summer.Thus, the trimming is such roses shortening all branches approximately one third length.Stimulate bush regeneration (cut completely one or two old shoots) should start with the third and second to fourth year after planting.This method of pruning is applicable to the following classes: Carmagnole, Clos leur blanc, Clos leur jaune, Guy Savoy, Perre Gagnare.The rest of the varieties can be cut at ground cover type, ie,gentle trimming and since 3 ^ 1 year - removal of old shoots.

Carmagnole.Flowers original disclosure on all stages, from tender buds to flower almost flat.The special charm of the flowers gives a light wave petals cream with carmine edge.Petals gently cupped shape that hides intrigue flower, and it is difficult to predict how it will be in full dissolution.It is dangerous to argue with such a spectacular flowering, so it is best planted next to "background" varieties which do not come into competition.Unfortunately, this beauty can be affected by the rains.Bush, powerful and slightly spreading, reaching a height of 1.5 m.

Delicate flowers Perre Gagnare compete in the natural elegance of form and beauty of stamens.The high (1.5 m) shrubs with numerous branching stems and thick, shiny olive-green leaves form a wonderful habit.Leaves a lot, and they cover the plant to the foundation that makes this variety ideal for hedges, not only in the gardens of the natural style.The curbs and groups perfectly with other shrabami especially great alliance with Mchel Bras.

Beautiful flowers Guy Savoy we have discussed here only mention the dignity of the bush as a whole.Flowers with saturated color need dense foliage of the bush, against this background, they look the best way.Breeders have succeeded, densely leafy bush with large flowers look not only spectacular, but also healthy.

Grades shrabov whose growth does not exceed 1.2 m, in our conditions, it is usually easier to grow - their shoots are much more plastic and rigorous approach to pruning no.Some varieties (and not only Delbard collection) can be viewed with the same right and shrabov group, and a group of SMOs-vopokrovnyh roses.Today, not all of the so-called soil-covering roses shoots travel along the ground, and among low shrabov many widely sprawling bushes (where the width is greater than height).Perhaps for this reason they are is not officially divided.

remaining varieties of the same original and ready to surprise you with astonishing soft pink nuances (Pars 2000);huge, but elegant simple flowers (Pmprenelle), translucent petals (Sorbet Peche Abrcot), colorful flowers (Ctron-rese), bezship-governmental shoots (Sorbet rombose), pleasant fragrances (Bouquet Vanlle) and even striking an appropriate name (Pur Caprce).
