Rose Variety Confusion - Knowledgebase Question

Hackensack, NJ
Question by arditab

I have just purchased a new construction home and plan to plant roses this year. I grew up with roses in my parents' garden and thought I was familiar with the different rose types but...what is the difference between: climbing, rambling, and shrub roses. I would have thought that rambling and shrub were really one thing. My other confusion is: which are the "long-stemmed" varieties? Hybrid Teas, Floribunda or Grandiflora. My understanding is that Floribunda bloom all season and are more disease resistant than Grandiflora. So where does this put Hybrid Tea??? Help!
Also, is it true that of the climbers there are two types. Ones that you prune back to the ground and the other whose canes you lay on the ground and cover for the winter.

light and lack of air circulation.

If you are planning on getting into roses in a big way, you might want to read up on them a bit. There are also consulting rosarians available through the American Rose Society and your local County Extension should also be able to help suggest roses that do well in your area from which you might select. Have fun with your new garden!
