The low-growing bed roses are particularly popular in smaller gardens. We are introducing you to the 20 most popular and most beautiful varieties of bed roses.
If you are looking for beautiful roses ( pink ) for your garden bed, you have come to the right place with bed roses. This large group includes many different varieties in all imaginable colors and shapes. What they all have in common, however, is their rather low, compact growth, which also makes them the ideal plant for smaller gardens. For the floribunda to get along well outdoors, plant breeding has placed great emphasis on heat tolerance, rain resistance, and winter hardiness in recent decades. However, some varieties are also characterized by their ability to flower or their good leaf health. Thus, a suitable rose is guaranteed to be found for every location.
What exactly distinguishes bed roses from other groups of roses and the characteristics of the individual varieties is explained below. We will also introduce you to our floribunda favorites for the garden.
Bouquet roses: characteristics and growth habit
The term “bed roses” summarizes various roses that can be planted in groups or over a large area. They are characterized by their bushy growth and their low height. On average, they reach heights of around 70 to 120 cm. However, to keep your floribunda in good shape, you should prune them regularly. If this does not happen or only to a small extent, the bed roses hardly differ from small shrub roses. Almost all modern floribunda rose varieties bloom more often and inspire us all summer long with their abundant flowers.
In the broadest sense, hybrid tea roses with their beautiful, large flowers also count as bed roses – you can find a comprehensive overview of beautiful hybrid tea roses here. Polyantha and Floribunda roses, on the other hand, bloom in clusters, and this group of roses generally offers a wide variety of different flower colors and shapes.
Some floribunda roses are also particularly heat-tolerant, partial shade tolerant, or rainproof. Depending on the variety, they also smell very good or have a long flowering time. If you only have a little space in the garden, it is best to fall back on dwarf roses, which only reach a height of 30 to 50 cm. Or, in this case, you can buy a hybrid tea rose that has been grafted onto a stem, a so-called stem rose.
