3 Easy Care Roses

White and Yellow Lady Banks Rose

Now if you have a place with room to grow, lets say an eyesore you'd like to obscure, or an old fence you'd like to cover, the Lady Banks Rose may be a good fit. A vigorouse grower, the Lady Banks Rose, whether its the yellow or white will over you some help. They can cover a sunny corner with lovely miniature double blooms in Spring. Need a perfect climber for an arbor and don't want to wait a long time, then this rose is awesome for that as well. The best feature of a Lady Banks Rose? Disease and pest resistance. The most important thing to do in caring for this rose is to make sure it gets a lot of water in hot weather. Other than that, this one thrives with little assistance.

KnockOut Rose

The Knock Out rose has been around for a while now, and it is a good starter rose for those looking to try their hand at rose growing. While this rose variety is disease resistant and pest resistant, that doesn't mean it can't get diseases or pests. To really get these roses to live up to their name you should water regularly, prune well during the winter, mulch, and feed. Because they can be heavy bloomers they need a good dose of feeding.


Wild and Carpet Roses

One of the best choices for a rose is a wild rose. Now if you're lucky enough to live close to the country where wild roses tend to grow on road sides and abandoned homesteads, then you need not do anything but grab a shovel and dig one up. Wild roses are strong, resilient and can take drought, disease and pests on the chin and comeback fighting. However, if you don't live anywhere like that there are awesome varieties that are just like the beautiful pink wild roses that we've talked about, the Carpet Rose. Carpet roses offer all the vigor and rampant blooming that wild roses offer and are virtually carefree. If you have a fence that needs personality, or a boring spot in your yard the lovely Carpet rose will not let you down. Perfect for those who don't want to have to do a lot of work with roses.
