These varied shrub roses are the product of crossing various species roses with modern bush roses during the 20th century. Nearly all have something in common with modern roses in their overall character. They usually form quite large shrubs of 5 ft to 6 ft in height.
Many shrub roses can be relied upon to repeat flower given good conditions and they are therefore very useful garden shrubs, bringing colour when most other shrubs have ceased to flower. Although we can usually detect something of the modern rose in their make-up, their growth is generally graceful, spreading and shrub-like.
The flowers often have no very definite form, gaining much of their beauty from their massed effect.
