A Bit About Rose Varieties

There are a few things to consider when selecting roses for cut flowers, including variety, bloom size and stem length. Here's a breakdown of how each type of rose could work for cut flower arrangements:

Hybrid Tea
roses are a popular choice for cut flower gardens because they typically have long, sturdy stems and large, single blooms that are perfect for creating stunning arrangements. They're also known to have long-lasting blooms.

Floribunda
roses produce clusters of small to medium-sized blooms on shorter stems. While the shorter stem might not make them ideal for vases, they make perfect fillers in bouquets due to their clustering bloom pattern.

Grandiflora roses are a hybrid of hybrid tea and floribunda roses, producing large, showy blooms that are great for creating eye-catching arrangements. They typically have long, sturdy stems like hybrid teas, but their blooms are more clustered like floribundas., so you get the best of both roses!

Rose-Cutting Tips

  • Cut roses early in the morning or late in the evening when the temperature is cooler to help retain moisture.
  • Use sharp, clean pruning shears to make a clean cut to reduce the risk of damaging the stem and prevent the introduction of harmful bacteria.
  • Cut roses at a 45-degree angle to increase the surface area for water uptake.
  • Cut the rose stems at an appropriate length depending on your desired arrangement.
  • Remove any leaves that will be below the waterline in the vase to prevent bacterial growth and help the water stay clean.
  • Change the water in the vase every other day and recut the stems at a 45-degree angle to maintain water uptake.
