Foolproof Roses: What Are The Easiest Roses To Grow?
The easiest roses are those which do not require much care or attention. They need no fertilizers, pesticides, or other chemicals to keep them healthy and beautiful. These flowers will produce well even if they get wet from rain. Some of these roses may bloom only once every few years but it does not matter because their beauty will last forever! There are many varieties of easy roses available today. Some of them are:
Easy White Roses
These roses have white petals with pink centers. Easy whites are usually grown in small bunches and are very easy to grow. They will flower after just one year. You can easily propagate them by division into smaller plants or by simply cutting off a portion of the top leaf when you plant them out.
Easy Red Roses
Red roses come in two types; reds and purples. The difference between the two is mainly in color. Most red roses are easy to grow. They can be divided into three categories; early, medium and late blooming varieties. Early blooms are the most common type of rose and they generally produce their first flowers within a month of being planted out.
Medium blooms take longer to bloom than late blossoms but still tend to do so within a month or two after planting out. Late blooms can take up to three months after planting out for their first flowers to appear but generally have a longer vase life and produce a bigger display than the other types.
Easy Yellow Roses
These roses are much rarer than the other colors and as a result are much more expensive. Their color is not very bright, tending more towards brownish-yellow. They will bloom about a month after planting.
Easy Multicolored Roses
These roses are very beautiful and can have multiple colors or just two colors on the petals. They take slightly longer to bloom than easy whites and easy yellows, usually about 2 months. But once they start, you will enjoy their lovely display for many weeks.
Easy Orange Roses
These are not common but easy to grow roses. They are a combination of red and yellow roses and as such have a wide range of coloring.
