Rose encyclopaedia

In our Rose Encyclopaedia you will find a description of all ADR and Excellence certified varieties (not all of these are planted in our garden) and a number of varieties without these distinctions that are or were planted in the garden. The data originate from the breeders.

The specified height and width are indicative. They depend, among other things, on the soil, fertilization, climate and method of pruning. Therefore no rights can therefore be derived from it.

Flower filling, fragrance, attractiveness to insects, health and winter hardiness are indicated with stars.

Flower filling:
Single: 1-8 petals;
Semi-filled: 9-16 petals;
Filled: 17-25 petals;
Full: 26-41 petals;
Very full: more than 41 petals.

From (no or hardly any odor) to (overwhelming odor).
Keep in mind that fragrance depends in part on the time, temperature and development stage of the flower. Scent perception can also vary from person to person.

Attractiveness to insects:
From (not or hardly attractive) to (very attractive).

From (highly susceptible to fungal diseases) to (resistant to fungal diseases).
Varieties with one and two stars are not suitable for organic gardening, with 3 stars a biological agent may be necessary, with 4 stars a slight infection is possible but the shrub will recover on its own.
This, of course, requires ensuring good growing conditions.

Winter hardiness:
Most roses are sufficiently winter hardy.Indications: is hardy to about -15, to -20 and to -30 degrees Celsius. Note that they are sensitive to night frost when they sprout in springtime.

Good luck in the search for your ideal rose!
