Continuation of the description of some groups of roses. In this article, special attention will be paid to the description of such a group as ground cover roses.
Ground-cover roses. The opinion of breeders on the allocation of them in a separate group does not coincide. Some believe that they should be identified as a separate group, since their common species data coincide in many indicators. Others believe that this is not enough. Therefore, there should also be biological species coincidence: the height of the plant should in no case exceed the width (30-45 cm height 1.5 m wide or at least 1 m high at 1.5 m wide). Some breeders refer them to the superintendents because certain characteristics coincide. Ground-cover roses can have such parameters: from 20 cm to 2 m in height and width, which is much higher than the height. They are divided into:
- small creeping roses, reaching a height of 30-45 cm and not more than 1.5 m wide.
- large creeping roses with a height of more than 45 cm and a width of more than 1.5 m.
- small drooping roses up to 95 cm tall and not more than 1.5 m wide.
- large wilting roses are higher than 1 m, and a width of 1.5 m.
The builders grow horizontally and sometimes they can take root in the nodes, while the drooping ones form a sprawling bush with arcuate drooping branches. Uncomplicated. They have a continuous continuous flowering, resistance against diseases and increased winter hardiness. Properties of all ground-covering roses. Usually blossom once, but there are also re-flowering.
