Beautiful, Versatile, and “Green” Roses

Roses possess a rare combination of texture, fragrance, form and color that elevates them to royal status among flowers. Known to have been cultivated in gardens throughout history, roses have been grown for medicinal qualities, religious symbolism, fragrance, flavor and beauty. The rose was designated the National Floral Emblem of the United States in 1986.

The U.S. Botanic Garden follows a sustainable approach to growing roses. Healthy roses start with good soil. Nutrients may need be needed to improve the soil, a soil test will determine which ones and in what quantities. We select roses that are naturally resistant to the diseases in our area to reduce or eliminate pesticide use. If the particular rose does not perform well or gets diseased, we remove it and try a different selection. It is possible to have a rose garden that is healthy, beautiful, and friendly to the environment.
