The Rose Comparison Chart is a list of common shrub roses grown at Johnson’s Nursery. Roses are versatile, smaller, ornamental shrubs used in landscapes, and vary in flower colors and shapes such as rugosa, shrub, low/mounding, and groundcover. Rose blooms vary between recurrent and everblooming. Everblooming indicates a plant that will produce a continual period of flowering. Recurrent bloom roses flower for 2-3 weeks, then take a 2-3 week rest without flowers, then repeat the bloom cycle. Through the growing season, you can expect about 3 bloom cycles.
Shrub roses are easy to grow. Choose a location with a minimum of 6 hours of direct sunlight and well-drained soil. When watering, avoid getting the foliage wet, which can cause blighting of the leaves or black spots (both are leaf diseases).
