23 exhibitions of roses in the world took place in 2017. The results of each of them give us, rosewoods, the opportunity to choose the best varieties for planting at home. The criteria for assessing roses are important to us because the technical data of plants are often the main characteristic for buying a variety. Of course, many gardeners choose plants for their beauty, and only then assess the possibilities, and this is also a choice too.
