Although many people think of one particular variety when they think of roses, the plant is actually incredibly diverse. There are heirloom roses, climbing roses, groundcover roses, English tea roses, and more. And while caring for some roses can be labor-intensive, others are much more forgiving of a gardener's time and effort. To help you sort through the differences, the Rose section of the Better Homes and Gardens Plant Encyclopedia includes many types of roses, sortable by both scientific and common name and distinguished by USDA Hardiness Zone. The Plant Encyclopedia also contains common growing conditions and limitations such as moisture, sun, and shade. You'll also find rose-care tips such as ideal pruning and garden locations, growing habits and rose types, as well as ideas for using roses in the landscape.
