Which Roses Do Well In Pots

Planting roses in pots offer a simple and elegant way to give gardeners the opportunity to enjoy their blooms in spaces large and small. But it’s important to know which varieties of roses can thrive when planted in containers.

Start by considering the size of your pot, as this will have an effect on what variety is best for you. Climbing shrub roses may need larger vessels than smaller bush varieties. Make sure whatever you choose also has drainage holes at the bottom and slips off with ease from its container for easier cleaning.

Next, consider your climate zone–whether hot or cold–and select rose varieties that are adapted to its appropriate conditions. If opting for a warm-climate hybrid tea rose, look for disease-resistant ones such as ‘Tahitian Sunset’; if choosing a cold-climate species like rugosa roses, try ‘Robbins.’

Also, consider picking plants that withstand periods of drought and need less water due to their well-developed root systems—compact floribundas are good options here—or those with large flowers that form a beautiful bouquet, such as hybrid musk roses. Last but not least, make sure you always find roses with adequate disease resistance like ‘Crossfire.’

Following these simple tips can save time and energy when creating the perfect container garden filled with gorgeous blooms all season long!
