A note from Lady Lee – this post is a guest post. This year was the first year I planted some flowers in my garden. At home, in town, I have a very small growing space, so I always prefer to use it for vegetables. This year, since I planted on our farm I had more than enough room to play. I am hooked! Flowers are definitely in my garden plan from now on, but I have a lot to learn. My plan is to add a flower gardening section to Lady Lee’s Home where I can record and share with you my research and experience. I hope you’ll enjoy this post, and please share with us your experience with fragrant roses.
Roses are considered some of the most beautiful flowers in the world. They can certainly give every garden a unique look with their bright colors and interesting shapes.
Add nice fragrance, and you will have the best garden in the entire neighborhood.
Nowadays, there is a big variety of roses from which you can choose. You will have to make your choice carefully though because not every kind of rose will provide your place with a pleasant aroma.
You will be surprised how much your garden will change, once you decide to plant a couple of beautiful roses in it. Except color, they will also add a very nice fragrant.
The good thing about planting such flowers on your property is that you won’t have to spend every free minute of your time taking care of them. Roses don’t need that much care and some types can even bloom repeatedly.
Every person has a specific taste, so it’s also important to pick a rose with a fragrance that you find pleasant. You can choose from musk, honey, licorice, citrus and more.
We can help you make a choice faster by providing you with some specific information regarding the different types of roses.
Here are four different varieties of roses that have an amazing fragrance…
Double Delight – This is a popular kind of rose, which is considered to have one of the most amazing fragrances. If you are a fan of the sweet scents, then you will certainly enjoy having the Double Delight in your garden.
This hybrid tea rose is preferred not only because of its special aroma but also because of its long blooming season. The Double Delight also combines in a very interesting way two colors, usually white and red.
Honey Perfume – This is a floribunda rose that can offer you great spicy scent. Except beautiful, the Honey Perfume is also very resistant when it comes to rust and various unpleasant diseases. You can expect it to grow 3 or 4 feet tall. Yellow is the main color, but there are other variations like orange and creamy white.
4th of July – Another rose with great fragrance is the 4th of July. This is without a doubt an exceptional type, which will make your garden more colorful than ever. Red and white are the predominant colors for this verity.
There is another advantage of planting 4th of July in your garden, and that’s the repeat blooming.
Elle – This is yet another beautiful rose that you should include in your in your garden. Just like the Double Delight, Elle is also a hybrid tea rose.
It has a nice citrus scent, and it’s very resistant when it comes to diseases like mildew, black spot and others.
The blossoms are very interesting, as the centre is usually in light yellow while the edges are pink. This beautiful combination, along with the great scent, will certainly enchant you.
Roses can add both color and fragrance to your garden. However, all hard work and care won’t mean anything unless you maintain your garden clean and organised. Clean the weeds and use organic and natural pest control methods when necessary. Performing a regular cleaning is a good strategy that will save you time and will help your roses grow faster.
