Rose shrubs are the epitome of beauty, with a graceful and ageless aesthetic that adds class to any garden. Available in a wide variety of colors and variations, these flowering shrubs are appropriate for any setting, from a formal public landscape to a private oasis. The best part is that they’re quite easy to grow for beginning gardeners.
Garden Goods Direct offers a wide selection of rose shrubs for new gardeners, with plenty of low-maintenance options to choose from in our online selection. We’ll help you learn more about our selection, as well as proper rose shrub care and maintenance.
What Types of Rose Shrubs Are There?
While most people tend to think of roses as delicate symbols of beauty, the reality is that they’re surprisingly hardy plants. Resistant to many diseases and inclement weather, roses can be used as centerpieces or borders for the rest of your garden, with lush foliage and vividly colored blooms to give you the burst of color you need.
At Garden Goods Direct, we offer several varieties of roses to serve different purposes in your garden. For groundcover, we offer the Drift Roses, a disease-resistant variety with consistently compact growing patterns. If a low-growing shrub is more what you’re looking for, Knock Out Roses and Oso Easy Roses are excellent options for low hedges and edging. If you need a taller rose bush, the Rugosa Rose is our final option, creating an impenetrable yet beautiful hedge for any landscape.
Why Should You Plant a Rose Shrub on Your Property?
Rose shrubs are lovely blooming additions to all types of properties, both commercial and residential. With thick foliage and colorful blooms, rose shrubs add the pop of color needed to increase a home’s curb appeal. Even better, they can serve a dual purpose as a privacy hedge, garden border or coverup for eyesores in your landscape.
Rose shrubs also serve functional purposes outside of your home. As bright flowers, roses attract pollinators like bees and butterflies, supporting your local ecosystem with nectar. They also tend to function well as barriers to wind erosion, while groundcover varieties are excellent at deterring weeds from taking hold.
How Can You Find the Right Rose Shrub for Your Home?
When choosing a rose shrub for your home, first consider what its purpose will be. Do you want a groundcover type plant to deter weed growth? Are you looking for a low hedge to border your existing garden or cover up eyesores? What about a privacy hedge to deter intruders? Your answer to these questions will help determine the best rose shrub for your needs.
The colors of the blooms are also important to consider, especially if you already have other plants in your garden. If you’re trying to blend the roses in with the rest of your landscape, choose a color close to your existing scheme. Otherwise choosing a unique or contrasting color can make your rose bushes stand out from the crowd.

How Do You Care for Your Rose Shrub?
Plant your rose shrub in the spring in soil that’s enhanced with a rose shrub fertilizer. Be sure to space them far enough apart to allow for growth, and regularly check that they’re properly growing within the first few weeks. Generally, roses need about two inches of water a week to keep their soil moisture at a good level, but you can help keep soil moist by adding mulch to your garden.
To avoid common rose shrub care problems like overcrowding, rose shrub trimming and pruning is necessary. This process mostly involves deadheading flowers, removing dead wood and destroying any old or diseased plant materials throughout the season. Always watch your rose shrub for growth problems or signs of disease or infestation — while roses are hardy plants, they can still get diseases when improperly maintained.
