Modern shrub roses


This group of Modern Shrub roses includes a diverse range of shrubs which are at home in mixed borders. The overall effect of Modern Shrub roses is one of less formal growth compared to the more restrained habit of the bush varieties. Strong, robust and often recurrent flowering, there are few shrub roses that produce so much colour throughout the summer. Breeders of Modern Shrub roses have focused on introducing disease resistance together with scent and continuity of flowering, making them ideal for most gardens.


Pruning and care: Adequate feeding and mulching is crucial to maximise flowering potential of the Modern Shrub rose while pruning is generally limited to thinning out weak growth and cutting back the season’s growth by one third. Much depends on the parentage of the Modern Shrub. Some require less pruning if they are more like a species rose and a more natural shape is desired.
