  • David Austin (English Rose) – Combines the form and fragrance of old garden roses with the repeat bloom of modern roses.

  • Rugosa – Group of shrub roses noted for beautiful disease resistant foliage, colorful hips (fruit) and winter hardiness.
  • Shrub – A diverse category of plants including new hybrids and historic roses on multiple stemmed bushes. Can be used singly as specimens or grouped in mass.
