At SummerWinds, we have a fabulous selection of roses, grown to thrive in the Metropolitan Phoenix Area and available seasonally.

Roses can be added to your landscape to address a variety of needs—all while adding texture, color and fragrance to your garden.

Types of Roses

Hybrid Tea Roses

Hybrid Tea Roses

Hybrid Tea Roses are the oldest classification of a modern garden rose. It is the most popular type of rose and was created by cross-breeding hybrid perpetual roses with tea roses. They make wonderful, colorful cut flowers and have fast-growing upright stems with few leaves and ususally a beautiful, well-formed large, high-centered single bud on each stem.

Grandiflora Roses

Grandiflora Roses

Grandiflora roses blend the best traits of hybrid teas and floribundas. They produce the same elegantly shaped blooms as hybrid teas, but in long-stemmed clusters that continually repeat, like floribundas. The plants tend to be tall (up to 7 feet), hardy, and disease-resistant. Because of their size, grandifloras are suited to hedging and flower-border backgrounds. This rose category was created to accommodate the unique 'Queen Elizabeth' rose introduced in 1955.

Floribunda Roses

Floribunda Roses

Floribunda roses offer a bouquet on every branch. The small flowers look like elegant hybrid tea blooms but appear in clusters instead of one flower per stem. Floribundas are a cross between polyantha species roses and hybrid teas, combining hardiness, free flowering, and showy, usually fragrant blooms. Sizes of these hardy roses vary from compact and low-growing to a more open habit and heights of 5-6 feet, ideal for tall hedges. The foliage on floribunda roses tends to shrug off diseases, making for a low-maintenance plant that delivers maximum impact with its continuous bloom cycles. Most floribundas require very little spring pruning -- just removal of dead or damaged wood.

Climbing Roses

Climbing Roses

Most Climbing roses grow anywhere from 8'–20' in height and exhibit repeat-blooms. They lack the ability to cling to supports on their own, and must be manually trained and tied over structures such as arbors. Climbing roses are great for arbors and entry ways. They flower on green canes that get direct sun light and only require pruning every other to every third year to remove gray wood.
