Only species roses can grow true from seed. All hybrid roses are started by cuttings.

Roses can be started from seed. It is a long process and you may or may not know what the results will be. It depends on whether it is a species (which can be the same as the parent, unless it was crossed with anther rose), or if it is a hybrid rose you could have many different roses from one seed pod depending on the genes inherited by each seedling.
Roses do not grow from bulbs, but from roots.
To start a new plant from one you already have you would need to take cuttings and root them.

My personal faves are all the roses with 'Splash' in their names. Some are bush roses and some are carpet roses. The advantage of carpet roses is they have a mounding growth habit and never need pruning (unless they get too big).

I'll add that you can look through our database at all the roses, with information about size and hardiness zones
