Rose,genus of some 100 species of perennial shrubs in the rose family.Roses are native primarily to the temperature regions of the Northern Hemisphere.Many roses ๐ŸŒน are cultivated for their beautiful ๐Ÿ˜ flowers ๐ŸŒผ,which range in colour from white through various tons of yellow ๐ŸŸก and pink to dark ๐ŸŒ‘ crimson and maroon,and most have a delightful ๐Ÿ™‚ fragrance,which varies according to the variety and to climatic conditions.

  • Most rose species are native to Asia ๐ŸŒ,with smaller numbers being native to Northern America and a few to Europe and northwest โ†–๏ธ Africa.Roses from different regions of the world ๐ŸŒ hybridize readily, giving rise to types that overlap the parental forms,and makin it difficult to determine basic species.Fewer than 10 species, mostly native to Asia,were involved in the crossbreeding that ultimately produced today's many types of garden roses ๐ŸŒน.

  • Physical description:-

Roses ๐ŸŒน are erect, climbing,or trailing shrubs,the stems of which are usually copiously armed with prickles of various shapes and sizes, commonly called thorns.The leaves are alternate and pinnately compound usually with oval leaflets that are sharply toothed.The flowers ๐ŸŒบ of wild roses ๐ŸŒน usually have five petals,whereas the flowers ๐ŸŒบ of cultivated roses ๐ŸŒน are often double.Rose flowers size ranges from tinny mimiatures 1.25cm in diameter to hybrid flowers ๐ŸŒบ measuring more than 17.5cm across.The rose plants fleshy, sometimes edible,berry like "fruit ๐Ÿ‘" is Known as a hip and usually ranges from red to orange in colour.

Roses ๐Ÿต๏ธ can become infected by a number of diseases,most of them caused by fungi.Powdery mildew appears are grayish white moldlike growth on the surface of young leaves and stems.Black spot fungus appears as conspicuous black spots on leaves and causes them to fall off.Rust is also a common disease of roses ๐Ÿต๏ธ.Aphids are common insect ๐Ÿ pest on leaves and young stems.

The flowers ๐ŸŒธ of the damask rose and several other species are the source of attar of roses ๐ŸŒน used in perfumes.Many species, particularly the rugosa rose , produce edible rose hips,which are a rich source of Vitamin C and are sometimes used in preserves.

  • There are several major classes of garden ๐Ÿก roses ๐ŸŒน.The best known and most popular class of rose is that of the hybrid tea roses,which accounts for the majority of roses grown in greenhouse and gardens and sold in florist shops.Hybrid tea come in the complete range of of rose colours and have large symmetrical blossoms.Hybrid teas resulted from the crossbreeding of frequently blooming but fragile tea roses with vigorous hybrid perpetual roses ๐ŸŒน.The hybrid perpetuals achieved great popularity until they were supplanted by the hybrid teas in the early 20th century.Polyantha roses ๐ŸŒน are a class of very hardy roses that produce dense bunches of tiny blossoms.

  • Floribunda roses ๐ŸŒน are hardy hybrids that resulted from crossing hybrid teas with polyanthas.Grandiflora roses ๐ŸŒน are relatively new hybrids resulting from the cross breeding of hybrid teas and floribunda roses ๐ŸŒน.

  • Grandifloras produce full blossomed Flowers ๐ŸŒธ growing ๐Ÿ’— on tall hardy bushes.Among the other classes of modern roses are climbing roses,whose slender stems can be trained to ascend trellises,shrub roses,which develope into large bushes;and miniature roses which are pegmy sized plants bearing tinny blossoms.Altogether there are thousands of identifiable varieties of roses in those and other classes.
