Roses


Roses are a perennial flower shrub/climber.  With over 100 species of roses, variety of colors and smells, roses are a wonderful addition to any garden.
Roses are generally categorized into 3 groups of roses:

WILD ROSES

Wild Roses, also known as “prickly roses”, they have erect or arching branches covered with dark green, smooth to slightly hairy leaves set in leaflets of 5 to 7.  The flowers are single blooms that emerge in mid- to late spring.  The most common of the wild roses are the ‘Austrian Coppers’ (Yellow & orange blooms) and ‘Lady Banks’ (yellow) and ‘Woods Rose’ (pale pink to white).  These roses can be 4’-5’ tall and wide; they have an unusual scent. 
Wild roses typically set more “rose hips” than other types of roses—rose hips are the reddish-orange fruit of a rose. They are harvested and used in herbal teas, jams, jellies, soups, bread, wine, beverages.  Rose hips are very high in Vitamin C.

Old Garden Roses

Old Garden Roses are called as such if their classification existed before the first modern rose was introduced in late 1800’s France.  They tend to be woody shrubs that bloom on 2 year old canes in shades of whites, pinks and reds.  The introduction of China and Tea roses led to a newer form of ‘Old Garden Rose’ that bloom, repeatedly on new growth.  While harder to get a hold of, they are coveted for their high disease resistance.
Some classifications of these roses are:  Alba, China, Tea, Damask, Provence, Moss, Portland, Bourbon, Hybrid Perpetual, Hybrid Musk and Hybrid Rugosa.

The classifications tend to be by growth and flowering characteristics, such as "large-flowered shrub", "recurrent, large-flowered shrub", "cluster-flowered", "rambler recurrent", or "ground-cover non-recurrent".

Modern Roses

The following includes popular classifications of Modern Garden Roses:

Hybrid Tea
The favorite rose for much of the history of modern roses, hybrid teas were initially created by hybridizing Hybrid Perpetuals with Tea roses in the late 1800s. ‘La France’ created in 1867, is universally acknowledged as the first indication of a new class of roses. Hybrid teas exhibit traits midway between both parents.  The blooms are well-formed with large, high-centered buds, and each flowering stem typically terminates in a single shapely bloom. The shrubs tend to be stiffly upright and sparsely foliaged, which today is frowned upon in the landscape. Hybrid teas have become the single most popular class of garden rose of the 20th century; today, their reputation as being more high maintenance than many other rose classes has led to a decline in hybrid tea popularity among gardeners and landscapers in
favor of lower-maintenance "landscape" roses. The hybrid tea remains the standard rose of the floral industry, and is popular in home gardens and formal gardens.

Pernetiana

Roses'Soleil d'Or.'
While somewhat obscure, I mention these because they are important to the modern color palette.   Joseph Pernet-Ducher created the first class of roses to include genes from Rosa foetida--the old Austrian briar rose. This class introduced a completely new and various range of colors in roses; such as, shades of deep yellow, apricot, copper, orange, true scarlet, yellow bi-colors, lavender, gray, and brown. Although once in their own class, the
Pernetianas or Hybrid Foetidas were officially absorbed into the Hybrid Teas in 1930. The new colors created unbelievable interest and popularity into the Hybrid Teas, unfortunately, it also
created some problems such as scentless blooms and disease-susceptibility tendencies.
Polyantha
Literally "many-flowered" roses, from the Greek "poly" (many) and "anthos" (flower). Originally derived from crosses between two East Asian species (Rosa chinensis and R. multiflora),    Some Polyanthas grow compact, others have spreading in habit — with tiny blooms (1" in diameter on average) in large sprays, They have typical rose colors of white, pink and red. Their main claim to fame is their prolific bloom: they bloom from spring to fall.  Polyantha roses are still regarded as low-maintenance, disease-resistant garden roses today, and remain popular for that reason. Examples: ‘Cecile Brunner’, ‘The Fairy’, ‘Red Fairy’, ‘Pink Fairy.’

Floribunda


RosesRosa 'Borussia', a modern Floribunda rose
Rose breeders quickly saw the value in crossing polyanthas with hybrid teas, to create roses that bloomed with the polyantha profusion, but with hybrid tea floral beauty and color range. As the larger, more shapely flowers and hybrid-tea like growth habit separated these new roses from polyanthas and hybrid teas alike, a new class was created and named Floribunda, "many-flowering." Typical floribundas feature stiff shrubs, smaller and bushier than the average hybrid tea but less dense and sprawling than the average polyantha. The flowers are often smaller than hybrid teas but are carried in large sprays, giving a better floral effect in the garden. Floribundas are found in all hybrid tea colors and with the classic hybrid tea-shaped blossom, sometimes differing from hybrid teas only in their cluster-flowering habit. Examples:  'Tuscan Sun,’ ‘Bonica 82,’ ‘Shockwave,’ ‘Iceberg’ and ‘Sunsprite’

Grandiflora
Grandifloras (Latin for "large-flowered") were the class of roses created in the mid 1900s to designate back-crosses between hybrid teas and floribundas that fit neither category — specifically, the 'Queen Elizabeth' rose, which was introduced in 1954. Grandiflora shrubs are typically larger than either hybrid teas or floribundas, and feature hybrid tea-style flowers borne in small clusters of three to five, similar to a floribunda. Grandifloras maintained some popularity from about the 1950s to the 1980s but today they are much less popular than either the hybrid teas or the floribundas.

Miniature
All of the classes of Old Garden Roses—gallicas, centifolias, etc.—have corresponding miniature forms, although these were once-flowering just as their larger forms were. Like the standard-sized varieties, miniature Old Garden roses were crossed with repeat-blooming Asian species to produce ever-blooming miniature roses. Today, miniature roses are represented by twiggy, repeat-flowering shrubs ranging from 6" to 36" in height, with most falling in the 12"–24" height range. Blooms come in all the hybrid tea colors; many varieties also emulate the classic high centered hybrid tea flower shape. Miniature roses are often marketed and sold by the floral industry as houseplants, but it is important to remember that these plants are largely descended from outdoor shrubs native to temperate regions; thus, most miniature rose varieties require an annual period of cold dormancy to survive. (Examples: Petite de Hollande (Miniature Centifolia, once-blooming), Cupcake (Modern Miniature, repeat-blooming). Miniature garden roses only grow in the summer.

Climbing and rambling

Just like Miniatures, all the previously mentioned classes of roses have "climbing" forms.  Canes of shrubs grow much longer and more flexible than the normal "bush” forms. In Old Garden Roses, this is often the natural growth habit of many cultivars and varieties; however, in many Modern roses, climbing roses are the results of spontaneous mutations. For example, 'Climbing Peace' is designated as a "Climbing Hybrid Tea," because it’s genetically identical to the normal "shrub" form of the 'Peace' hybrid tea rose, except that its canes are long and flexible, i.e. "climbing." Most Climbing roses grow anywhere from 8'–20' in height and have a repeat-blooming cycle.

Rambling Roses are a separate class but often get lumped together with climbing roses. They also present with long, flexible canes, but are differentiated from true climbers in two ways: One, they have a larger overall size (20'–30' tall is normal), and always a once-blooming habit.

Climbing roses and Rambling roses are not true vines like trumpet vine, clematis or wisteria—as they lack the ability to “grasp” to supports on their own, and must be manually trained and tied over structures such as arbors and Examples: 'Blaze' (a repeat-blooming climber), ‘Dorothy Perkins' (a once-blooming rambler).

English / David Austin
Although not officially recognized as a separate class of roses by any established rose authority, English (aka David Austin) roses are often set aside as such by consumers and retailers alike. Development started in the 1960s by David Austin, who wanted to rekindle interest in Old Garden Roses by hybridizing them with modern hybrid teas and floribundas. The idea was to create a new group of roses that featured blooms with old-fashioned shapes and fragrances, but with modern repeat-blooming characteristics and the larger modern color range. Austin’s group of "English" roses, now numbers in the hundreds of varieties, and has been greeted with enthusiasm by gardeners worldwide. Many English roses are susceptible to the same disease problems that are a problem for hybrid teas and floribundas, and many are not hardy north of USDA Zone 5.

Landscape Rose/Shrub Roses
This is relatively new category of rose developed mainly for mass planting in unattended landscapes. With home owners, business and municipalities wanting to increase the value and appearance of their landscape with minimal upkeep, traditional hybrid tea, grandiflora and floribunda roses have became less popular due to their upkeep (pruning), and their susceptibility to pests and diseases. Landscape/Shrub roses have been developed to fulfill the consumer need for a garden rose that offers color, form and fragrance, but is also low maintenance and easy to care for. Most landscape roses having the following characteristics:

  • Lower growing habit, usually 18”-30” inches
  • Repeated flowering
  • Disease and pest resistance
  • They don’t sucker because they grow on their own roots!

 

Annuals & Perennials

DaisiesCoreopisAnnuals are plants/flowers that complete their life cycle in one growing season. Whether you grow from seed or purchase plant starts at your local nursery their lifecycle is: germination, growth, flowering thus producing seed(s) and then death.

Annuals are great for the garden because they offer a vibrant punch of color to accent throughout the yard.  You can either harvest the seed and replant in the spring or you can allow them to fall to the ground and allow them to rebloom in the spring—naturally.  The second option does not work as well if you have a very formal and organized garden.

Annuals can be planted throughout the growing season to re-invigorate or re-energize the look of a flower bed.

CoralBells CaramelPerennials live for more than one growing season. The two types of perennials are Herbaceous and Woody perennials.

Herbaceous perennials usually die to the ground at the end of the growing season and send up new shoots the following spring (such as Dinner Plate Hibiscus, Canna and Calla Lilies, Salvias and Coreopsis—even butterfly bushes can be.)

Woody perennials, such as trees and shrubs, do not die back but rather develop a hardened woody stem/trunk system and get larger each year. 

Perennials are the “anchor” of the landscape.  Some bloom multiple times and some only once.  While the blooms are nice often times perennials are planted for their stem structure or leaf interest.

Lawn

  • Did you know scientists say that turf will reduce surface heat by 30-40 degrees compared to bare ground?

  • Did you know that many of our activities create poisonous gases?  Did you know that grass needs carbon dioxide to live?  --A 50’x50’ patch of grass can convert enough carbon dioxide into oxygen to sustain a family of 4!

  • Did you know in a thick lawn, there are six turfgrass plants per square inch?  850 plants per square feet?  About 8 million plants in a 10,000 square foot lawn?

  • Did you know when grass clippings decay naturally in the lawn, they release important nutrients back into the soil—improving the soil?

  • Did you know that the leaves and thatch layer of lawns around the world trap some 12 million TONS of dust each year? 

  • Did you know when grass roots capture pollutants from rain water and trap it in the thatch and root systems where soil microbes begin to break them down—therefore protecting our drinking water systems.

  • Did you know that a single grass plant can have up to 387 miles of roots? (OK, maybe not in the Nevada desert.)  That means below the surface of most average lawns, there are over 3 billion miles of roots!  Hey, that’s a great soil erosion preventer!

At J & K LLamas Landscape and Nursery we want to help you create a fabulous and lush lawn.  That’s why we have several options!

If you want to start from seed we have several varieties to choose from and it’s bulk.  That means, you can buy as much or as little as you want or need.  Whether you are looking for a carpet-like lawn (Bluegrass), a durable lawn—lots of traffic, pets or activity (Fescue) or the best of both worlds (RTF) we can get seed for you!  If you want, we can even blend the seed for you!

If you have need of a more obscure grass seed, let us know, we have several suppliers and can usually find what you’re looking for!

If you want instant gratification and instant green, then our sod is for YOU!  We think our sod farm provides Northern Nevada the best sod available.  They take a thick cut which means more roots, beneficial microbes, even earthworms—thus a healthier lawn.  They grow 3 varieties—bluegrass, fescue and Xerilawn. For your ease and convenience, we keep sod in stock at the nursery but we can also have it delivered directly to your home or business.

If you do not want to install your own lawn, our license and bonded landscapers can do it for you!  Call for more inforomation.
