Rose Care Checklist
Fertilize roses with a liquid 20-20-20 solution when flower buds are set.Monitor roses for insects and diseases. Check daily for black spot, especially in wet weather. Do not handle rosebushes if foliage is wet and infected. Wait until leaves have dried before removing them and spraying.Monitor roses for rose slugs (small white caterpillars with black heads) and their damage (tissuelike patches on the leaves).Succulent new green growth is particularly susceptible to aphid attack. Monitor newly planted shrubs, small flowering trees, and juicy perennials for signs of aphids — curled, distorted tip growth. Spray a strong stream of water on damaged foliage to remove pests.
One application of fertilizer in the spring is usually sufficient for species roses such as Rosa rugosa and shrub roses. All other roses should be given their second application of a well-balanced fertilizer in mid-June or after their initial bloom period.Monitor roses for black spot and other fungal leaf diseases. Remove infected leaves immediately and begin a preventative spray program with an approved fungicide at labeled intervals. Call Plant Information Service at (847) 835-0972 for effective fungicide recommendations.Deadhead hybrid tea roses as soon as flowers fade. Many shrub roses are self-cleaning and don’t require deadheading. When in doubt, lightly prune old blossoms to keep plant looking attractive
Fertilize roses for the third and final time at the end of the month with a liquid 20-20-20 fertilizer. Do not fertilize after August 1.Continue to deadhead roses by cutting flowers back to the first set of five leaflets.Monitor roses closely for blackspot. Remove any leaves that show darkened circles with fuzzy margins on either the topside or underside of leaves; yellow foliage with dark spots; and any leaves that have already dropped from the plant. Begin a spray program with approved fungicides immediately. Always choose disease-resistant roses in the future.
Roses are generally not fertilized after the first week in August, although growers and rosarians interested in maximizing flower displays do continue to apply a dilute fertilizer.
Winter protection of roses is not necessary until late November, when the ground has frozen.

Types of Roses
There are three main groupings or classes of roses, and within those groupings there are a variety of different types of roses. The groupings refer to the plants history, how they grow, and their breeding.
- Old Roses
- Modern or Hybrid Roses
- Species or Wild Roses
Old roses are also called antique or heritage roses. These types have been around since at least 1867 without being changed. Old roses flower once, in early summer and are known for their strong fragrance. They are incredibly hardy and require very little pruning.

- Baronne Prevost
Modern or hybrid roses were created by taking the best parts of old rose varieties to create new and better roses. These new varieties have been bred for specific color, size and fragrance, as well as to resist disease, and bloom for longer or more frequent periods. This class of rose can be further broken down into Floribunda and Grandiflora.
Floribunda roses present their flowers in clusters or sprays. They feature brightly colored, smaller blooms. Their most desirable characteristic is the ability to flower all season long.
Grandiflora varieties combine the steady blooming quality of floribunda with the beauty of hybrid teas. Their large blooms grow on long stems, either singular or clustered.
HYBRID TEA ROSE
When you think of a rose, this is likely the type that comes to mind. They grow long stems with large, beautiful flowers in a wide range of colors. These are hands down, the most popular roses on the planet. They are the flowers you’ll see in florist’s shops and receive on Valentine’s Day. Most hybrid roses fall into the category of Hybrid Tea.
Wild roses are those that have been growing wild for thousands of years with no help or interference from people. These wildflowers have five petals and usually come in pink, red, and white coloring. Unlike other types, species roses also feature brightly colored hips. Species roses tend to be easy to maintain, very hardy, and bloom once per year.
