The most popular flowering shrubs so far are roses. With over 300 species of woody flowering perennials belonging to the Rosa genus and thousands of varieties, it is not a wonder it is crowned as king of flowers. Different types of roses are spread all over the world and are found on nearly all continents. Many of these types of roses grow in landscapes, and their original species ancestors can’t be traced since they are multi-generational hybrid cultivars. Most modern rose varieties are sold not by their species names but their unique cultivar names.
Being popular type of flowers that are always sent as gifts, roses also make beautiful garden plants because they are classic and timeless. With so many varieties to choose from, it is rather difficult choosing the right types of roses to send to your loved ones or grow in your home garden. Each rose variety has its own features and characteristics that are quite peculiar from other ones. Some roses bloom throughout the year, making the garden look vibrant from spring to autumn. Others offer bloom twice a year, offering cane-like rambling stems.
If you are thinking of sending roses as gifts, continue reading this post to learn more about 15 types of roses that can be sent or offered as floral gifts:
1. Hybrid Tea Rose
Featuring large ornate blooms consisting of 30 to 50 petals, the hybrid tea rose is the most popular class of roses. Thousands of hybrid tea roses have been bred, the latest replacing the old ones. They are popularly sold at florist shops. They grow upright, reaching up to 91 cm. to 1.5 m. They are available in most colors except blue and black. Some of them include:
- Peace Double
- Mr. Lincoln
2. English Roses
These are the best types of roses for those who are looking for a scented, disease-resistant, and hardy rose flower for their garden. These varieties have been carefully selected and grown for reliability. They are perfect for any home garden due to their shrubby nature. You can plant them on hedges, in containers, and in other casual and formal settings.
3. Grandiflora Roses
This beautiful rose flower variety was bred in the last century and is regarded as a subgroup class of hybrid tea roses. You will notice it from its floribunda and hybrid tea features: the constant growth circle of floribunda and elegant showy blooms of hybrid tea rose. Each cluster of Grandiflora roses has 3 to 5 blooms. However, their shrubs stand taller and larger than hybrid teas. These types of roses may not be as popular as their counterparts, but they make great garden flowers since they are vigorous and hardy.

4. Bourbon Roses
Bourbon types of rose bushes were introduced first in France in 1817, on the Île Bourbon. They are hybrid roses that come from crossing Damask roses and China roses. These rose types consist of vibrant full blooms of different colors, including red, pink, and white. Although bourbon roses have a strong fragrance, it is not as strong as the drink.

5. David Austin Roses
Named after a British rose breeder called David Austin, this variety of roses come in various colors that run into hundreds. Many rose flower lovers, and retailers love these types of roses that are shaped like rosettes with a scent of an Old Rose variety.

The reason being that they are less hardy and are easily affected by diseases. This means that they require a lot of maintenance and attention.
6. Gallica Roses

They have a lovely scent that is often used to make perfumes. They also have unique petals that are used to make astringent, antibacterial, and tonic medicines. Moreover, they also come in many different hues, such as reds, pinks, purples, and a two-tone white stripe. It is unfortunate that these lovely hues can only be enjoyed once in summer.
