Garden Roses: The Epitome of Natural Beauty

There are very few flowers as beautiful and fragrant as garden roses. They come in a vast range of colors and types, and each one is unique in its own way. Whether you’re in the market to surprise a loved one with an over-the-top bouquet, or need a bouquet for the centerpiece of your summer party, timeless garden roses will undoubtedly be a treat. In this guide on garden roses, we’ll discuss everything you need to know about this delicate flower and how to choose the perfect bouquet.

Quick Facts about Garden Roses

  • They’re also known as Cabbage Roses
  • Garden roses come in a wide variety of types, including hybrid teas, floribundas, and grandifloras.
  • Having been bred for over 1,000 years in China, the Chinese rosa chinensis has evolved into today’s modern garden roses
  • They are known for being larger and having more petals than a standard rose, providing a beautifully fluffy, old-world look.

Uses of Garden Roses

Garden roses are immensely popular for their frothy petals and delicate appearance, making them highly sought after for bouquets at weddings and table centerpieces at special gatherings. However, there are numerous creative ways to use garden roses. For example, you can add them to a summer wreath adorning your door, or wear one as a boutonniere for a dressy event. As they are particularly fragrant, you can dry the petals of garden roses and use them as potpourri around the house, or sprinkle them into your bath for a luxurious, relaxing experience.

Choosing Your Bouquet

Garden roses have extra full blooms and long stems that create larger-than-life bouquets. They work really well when mixed with other flowers, but have plenty of presence on their own. If you’re looking to give a gift of garden roses, we’d recommend our Spellbound bouquet, which is a mix of sunset peach, pink, and deep red roses. We have several rare colors of pink garden roses, like Dazzler and Ballerina, which make perfect table centerpieces, but can also just be a treat when you need a pick-me-up.

Care Considerations

As they have thick stems that carry nutrients efficiently, cut garden roses can last a long time when properly cared for. After choosing your bouquet, take a look at our flower care guide, which outlines the steps to keep your roses as fresh as possible. Fortunately, the unique growing conditions on our farm set your garden roses up for an even longer vase life.

Garden roses have been adored for centuries and it’s not hard to see why. They’re harder to find in shops than standard roses, but this rarity is part of why they are so popular. While there are many different varieties to choose from, one thing remains constant: they’re all beautiful in their own right.
