Shrub Roses

The Shrub Rose group consists of Rugosa Roses, Hybrid Musks, the so-called Modern Roses and Ground Cover Roses. They generally form large, tough shrubs and many varieties are repeat-flowering. With their graceful, natural growth they are particularly suited to combining with other plants and shrubs in mixed cottage garden style borders. Our English Roses also sit in the Shrub Rose class and we encourage you to consider these too before making your final selection.
