Shrub roses to be most available in 2012

If you are starting to plan your spring or summer garden, it is more than likely that roses are on the "to-be-planted" list. The Lompo Record reports that there are 15 new roses that are destined for popularity in 2012, and they are not the traditional long-stemmed beauties.

In fact, most are shrub roses, which are designed to be planted throughout the landscape and garden because of the way they seamlessly blend with other perennials and flowers. Flower enthusiasts who lean more toward a lacy, flowing cluster of roses will be delighted with 2012's top blooms.

The news source reports that instead of formal, elegant stems, 2012 will see low-to-the ground bushes featuring blooms that sometimes barely resemble their better-known relatives. The new floribundas that are hybrids of a plant in Afghanistan and Iran are two varieties that may be popular, as they bear clusters of roses above lush, verdant leaves. The roses bear a distinctive red eye at the base of each petal.

Many of the trendiest roses will look fabulous in the garden, but if you would still love some traditional stems, choose a rose bouquet like Teleflora's Rose Rapture or the Delicate Dozen to decorate your home.
