Roses add colour and fragrance to your garden.
Their range of colours is very extensive: from white to purple, pastel yellow to fire engine red, and every colour in between. The only colour missing is a true blue. Some roses even change colour as they mature. They might have deep orange buds that will turn into pink petals in full bloom. And then there are the multicoloured roses and the ones with striped petals.
Some roses have stronger fragrances than others. Because their essential oils are contained in their petals, double-flowered roses often have a more intense scent. Once you start learning about the fragrances of roses, you’ll enter a world of discovery; the scent of roses varies from sweet as honey to nice and spicy.
