These roses in landscaping private gardens are becoming increasingly popular.How to find European landscape designers, replacing these roses annuals reduces the complexity and maintenance is cheaper than the lawn.what underlies such a bold statement to our fan?Long decorative, abundant colors and aromatic shades, excellent quality of the flower, some modern varieties, unpretentiousness in culture and high winter hardiness - the amount of advantages that can change our traditional fear of roses.

What are floribunda roses for the garden?

Floribunda obtained as a result of cross-breeding hybrid tea roses with polyanthus, and its appearance is connected with the name of a Danish breeder Poulsen.Many years of further

hybridization and selection yielded numerous cultivars, combine the advantages of the "parents".Selecting an independent group called lorbunda (meaning) in the classification of garden roses took place in the middle of the last century.In recent years, in this group there are many cultivars, which features - short stature and small leaves - isolated them in a separate group of Mn-lora (Mini-flora).Some breeding companies do not share your floribunda roses, dwarf in the catalogs of other new items appear as patio roses.Do not confuse these with miniature roses, compared with which the patio roses differ quite large flowers.

Why so popular floribunda roses for the garden?

Landscape designers creating rosaries or use roses in their projects, achieve maximum decorative effect and reduce risks to a minimum, if used floribunda roses.The landscaped gardens, you can achieve a stunning effect by mixed plantings, given the harmonious combination of colors, as well as the size and shape of the bush crown.Some varieties of roses floribunda Quality Flower Carpet groundcover roses superior.At the curb, in the foreground fragrant suit, spreading varieties with neat flower shape.

in large gardens with a regular layout gorgeous arrays, ridges, fences.Fashion trend is a return to the round flower beds, which concentrically strictly in circles, planted different on color and height varieties.

In forming the collection of Floribunda roses (unless the task to collect rarities) need to give preference to young cultivars, come, it should be not only of awards and titles, but also take into account their adaptability to our conditions.I want to warn inexperienced collectors: in maintaining a collection of unreliable varieties too burdensome.Older varieties lose their health and give way to modern for floral and decorative, though there are exceptions to this rule, and the catalog Delbard proof.

In the catalog company Delbard roses are distributed in series, which often does not indicate affiliation of individual varieties to garden groups, well-known Russian fans.For example, in the collection of varieties recommended for creating arrays, along with roses floribunda included and others are called roses with buds.Through the efforts of breeders boundaries between groups are blurred garden roses?Today floribunda rose is not difficult to confuse not only shrabami, but with hybrid tea roses.Among modern floribunda roses are many large and fragrant flowers, and single flowers in Hybrid Tea roses are already a rarity.I will try to identify those varieties in the collection, which in Russia can be considered floribunda roses.

Centenare de Lourdes rose (1958), a descendant of the unforgettable remontant roses rau Karl.Druschk (1901), has already taken its place in history thanks rozovodstva rare endurance and extremely abundant flowering.The Rose fall in love at first sight.Many experts believe that the celebrated one of the great rose roses of the last century.Rarely a public garden or the rose garden of the world do without Centenare de Lourdes rose, in the famous gardens of Claude Monet you can find it in rabatkah and shtambovoy form.

silky, sparkling flowers, cool pure pink color almost do not burn.Slightly wavy petals form a magnificent free-form flower.The flowers are collected in a loose medium-sized (from 5 to 10 flowers) inflorescences, but on the bush with dense branching so much that all together they seem a pink cloud.Fragrance not strong, but noticeable and pleasant.Rose tolerates poor soils and is not afraid of rain.German Heinrich rosarian Shulthays considers that rose today, after half a century since its inception, "the phenomenon of health."

In Russian the name of this sounds like a rose dedication to the city's anniversary ( "Century of Lourdes"), in fact, the cultivar was named in the centenary of the miraculous event.Lourdes - a small town in south-western France, at the foot of the Pyrenees.The city became in the XX century, a place of pilgrimage due to the Catholic Church been circulated the legend of "the miraculous appearance of the Virgin" Bernadette Soubirous, 14-year-old daughter of a miller, and about the alleged miraculous power source located near the place where the "miracle" occurred.

In 1958, the centennial of the "miracle of Lourdes", in the city held celebrations with the participation of the higher clergy, the clerical organizations, public figures in Europe.And still a lot of pilgrims wishing to go to heal the healing spring, open during one of the events.That is why, in 1992, Pope John Paul proclaimed February 11, the day of the first apparition of Lourdes, the World Day of the sick.

symbolic that rose dedicated to this amazing event, surviving his own half-century anniversary, different phenomenal health.

Rosa for many years was called without additions, indicating the color of the flower (rose), while the breeders are not published a sister of the class Centenare de Lourdes rouge (1992) with red velvety flowers.Kinship and even the similarity is not found, it will look closely to the varieties and more.

Another survivor in Delbard collection, Mlrose Class (1965), which is still reliable and popular.Tireless in flowering rose with beautiful foliage ideal for curbs along the tracks.Low (60-80 cm), the bushes are well branched and have a uniform crown.Pink semi-double flowers fade with time, but remain attractive.

Celne Delbard (1983) - a variety of dedicated granddaughter of Georges Delbara, stands of rare originality: a combination of colors (silver and hot pink) and the beautiful form of the flower.Perhaps it is these features subdued experts in international competitions, variety has four awards.Another advantage, essential in our environment: Class always bloom earlier than others.You can admire the flowers for a long time, but the smell is useless, rose almost no smell.

Floribunda Tobago (1981) in the collection is the champion in the number (eight!) Awards.Indeed, this rose a lot of advantages: bright yellow-orange color, classic buds, inflorescences large, conspicuous and powerful aroma mnogostebelnye bushes.Leaves elongated shape stand and serrated edge.Rose creates a bright color spots in any crop and because of the thick bushes and abundant flowering for ornamental fences.

Courtose des Relas et Chateaux (1984) too is not deprived of awards, seven.Both varieties are similar, but they can be distinguished not only by the flowers, but also on the leaves.The flowers are orange from a distance seem to be, but on closer inspection at the base of the petals visible shades of pink.Unlike the previous grade flowers do not scatter and retain excellent form before the end of flowering.Bushes are very powerful, with many shoots, leaves a lot and they are large.

Rose Telethon (2004) of the charity series "Heart Roses" in Russian is offered under the name of Ange.Brands synonyms for various reasons, may be a few, always in such cases, compare the letter codes (this is the original name of the variety), in this case, both names have the same code Delchacre.1 Gerwen three letters indicate the company that released this sort (in our example - Delbard), followed by a set of characters that uniquely identifies the grade.If you purchased the variety does not exist in the original company catalog, try to find a possible new trade name for alphabetic sort kodu.-It was established that the name is synonymous with Ange Telethon, it proved more difficult to identify the garden group, to which the variety.In Delbard directories in this respect, there is no definition, originators believe this is not particularly significant in Russia, knowledge of garden Group is traditionally important, because we have practiced a different approach to pruning plants.I think that if cutting is based on the conditions that Ange grade refers to roses floribunda.Lovely double flowers, cream with apricot center, pleasant smell of flowers and fruit.

One of the novelties, Domane de Sant Jean de Beauregard (2005), happy novelty shaped double flowers, the color saturation and striking bloom resistance.Rosette flowers, numerous petals are laid in rows, between which visible gaps.

By floribunda roses are also popular in Europe include a series of curb roses, though, judging only by the growth of some of them can be attributed to the patio roses.The popularity of these roses is provided exclusively abundant flowering and unpretentiousness in culture.We have an incomplete collection of this series, there are no varieties Bordure rose (1993) and Bordure vermlon (1990), but the rest can be assumed that their popularity in Russia does not lag behind the European level.In our conditions the fore hardiness and Roses enough to hill and podgresti snow.

Bordure magenta (2004).The rich and long-lasting color, purple flame, which, unfortunately, is distorted in the image and is often transmitted as red.You will have time to admire the flowers, they bloom gradually and keep their beautiful cupped without losing the depth of color, only in the final phase of flowering petals fade slightly.Rose can not be overlooked, it attracts the eye.Compact bushes with a domed crown and shiny leaves are good even without flowers.Highly recommend.

few tips on pruning roses

Combined cropping for floribunda roses is the best solution (although there are other options).Part of the shoots to stimulate early flowering, and another - pa growth basal shoots and flowering later wave.In the spring, despite the annual pruning floribunda roses usually look more overgrown and branched.After the sanitary pruning and removal of old shoots (for most modern floribunda roses old shoots may be considered after two years of age) must be removed or cut in the outer bud sprouts growing in the direction of the center of the bush.Then, one of the main remaining shoots cut severely, the other - in moderation.The side shoots on the main stems are shortened to 2-3 buds.
