Sabellico’s carries Weeks Roses which are renowned for their hardiness and quality . We have the old tried and true varieties as well as the new ‘All American Selections’. We select the roses that perform best in our local Zone 5 conditions.
There are many ways to use roses in the garden since they grow in a wide variety of forms: climbers, long-stemmed hybrid tea roses, landscape ground cover and tree roses. Newer varieties have greater disease resistance, making growing roses easier than ever. All roses need full sun for 6 to 8 hours a day as well as rich, organic soil, good air circulation and pruning.
HYBRID TEAS – The most popular of all roses. Hybrid teas are large, elegantly shaped roses with a high center and many petals, opening from long pointed buds that that re-bloom throughout the season. They come in a wide range of colors and have an upright, formal, open habit. Fragrance varies from variety to variety.
FLORIBUNDA – Open cup-shaped roses that are borne in profuse clusters or sprays and are rarely out of bloom from spring though first frost. Florbunda roses are come in single to double blooms depending on the variety and come in all colors. Hardy, vigorous, disease resistant and easy to grow, they are an excellent choice for a low hedge or border.
GRANDIFLORAS – Elegant long-stemmed, abundant blooms are presented in clusters on upright canes from early summer through fall. Grandifloras are a cross of hybrid tea and floribunda roses. Vigorous, large bushes can grow as tall as 8 to 10 feet.
DAVID AUSTIN AND ENGLISH ROSES – A cross of old English and modern roses resulst in hybrids that are very fragrant, with repeat flowering, improved hardiness, disease resistance and a more natural shrubby growth habit. Some varieties can be used as climbers.
CLIMBING ROSES – Long flexible structured canes bear flowering shoots. Support with a sturdy arbor, trellis or along a fence. Flowers come in all colors, forms and fragrances, depending on the variety.
GROUND COVER ROSES – Continuously blooming from spring to early frost with attractive dark glossy foliage. These roses are easy to grow, disease resistant and vigorous with a low spreading habit. Great as a ground cover in the landscape or grow in containers. Prune back to 4-inces in late winter for best repeat performance year after year.
LANDSCAPE SHRUB ROSES – Provides a wide range of growth habits that can fit into many different garden situations. They are disease resistant, bloom continuously and come in a wide range of colors.
