Bedner's Farm & Greenhouse

Plant Spotlight: Roses

Growing shrub roses isn’t just for the seasoned gardener anymore. Newer varieties have been bred to be less susceptible to pest and disease issues, as well as to extend the bloom periods.

Roses can fit into any landscape in most climates. Plant them individually as a focal point, among other shrubs, or in large groups to create a colorful hedge.  Incorporate perennials and annuals to create a season of color, texture and interest.
