As you are looking at a tree rose, you might want to plant it in your garden. A tree rose is a glamorous sight. A tree rose is a great monument on the lawn, near the house, or in any corner garden, open for everyone’s observation.
A tree rose is a plant that is artificially created by the gardener’s hands, a method of growing invented in royal gardens. Tree roses take over a year to create, which is why the saplings of a tree rose are more expensive than those of shrub roses.
Different species of tree rose
1. Diminutive tree roses with the stem height of 16 18 inches (40-45cm). This rose is created from the diminutive stem with engrafted diminutive roses or groundcover roses on it.
2. Semi-tree rose. This is a rose with the stem height of 28 inches (70 cm). These roses are created from the Floribunda kind as they are very picturesque with their plentiful blossoming.
3. Tree rose. This is a rose with the stem height at least 3 3.5ft (90-105cm). Hybrids of tea roses are engrafted on the stem.
4. Tree roses of a weeping kind. The height of the stem is 4 5ft 8 inches (1.2 1.7m). Climbing or groundcover roses are engrafted on the stem. Roses of Rambler species with their tender drooping and plentifully blossoming sprouts adorn the stem.
How do you plant a tree rose?
A tree rose is planted in the spring.
1. A tree rose is chosen with a container with a height of at least 10 inches (25сm). The stem must have no traumas or excrescences. The crown of a tree rose must have at least 2 engraftings on the opposite sides of the stem. This can be determined when you examine the branches, which spread from 2 spots on the stem. Without these, it is hard to shape a good bush on the stem. A tree rose with a soil lump is easilytaken out of the container. The soil lump is slightly damp with rootlets running through it.
2. A hole that is two times wider and deeper than the soil lump with the roots of a tree rose is dug out. The top part of the fertile soil is put to one side, the bottom soil to the other. Compost or rotten manure is mixed with the top soil 1:1. The fertile mixture is poured to the bottom of the hole so that when planting, the taproot of the tree rose is at the level of the soil (2-3 inches). Support, which is a little lower than the tree rose, is set firmly.
3. A pot or a container is separated carefully from the soil lump of a tree rose. The soil in the hole is moisturized, and the lump of soil with roots is set at the distance of 4 inches (10 cm) away from the support. The mixture of soil is poured in levels and consolidated.
4. The rose’s stem is tied to the support in 3 areas with loops: at the stem’s base, in the middle, and in the crown’s base.
5. The pruning of a tree rose is done in the same way as the rose shrubs of the corresponding engrafted ones.
Tips on growing the tree rose
It’s better to add an additional support to the turnstile shape for a drooping crown of a tree rose. You may distribute the branches of the rose on this support.
The pruning of a tree rose is done in the spring, depending on the desirable shape of the crown. If sprouts appear on the stem of a tree rose, they should be removed.
A tree rose can survive warm winters in zones USDA above 7.
If the climate is improper, a tree rose should be planted in a container. During the winter, a container with a tree rose can be moved indoors. If a tree rose is planted into the open soil, it is necessary to cover of the tree with warm material to provide isolation from moisture.
There is another kind of heat insulation.
To use it, while planting, you need to bend the stem slightly to the side opposite to the little curve at the stem’s base. As the Fall approaches, when the temperature reaches 39.2F (4C), you need to free the stem from the support. Dig out a hole in the soil, up to 8 inches (20 cm), according to the plant’s length. Tie the branches of the tree rose together with a synthetic cord. Loosen the soil with a pitchfork near the root system to free the roots, and bend the stem to the soil. A tree rose is put on dry oak leaves, poured over with dry leaves, sawdust, and then with soil. The soil above the roots is also covered with oak leaves and a hillock of soil. An isolating material is put on top. Oak leaves prevent rotting.
In this case, the stem needs to be bent very carefully to make sure you don’t break it in the place of engrafting.
A tree rose is a wonderful decoration in a garden, which is why any difficulties in its care can be overcome.
