Dwarf roses are native to China and have a white, yellow or pink flower, which usually stands together with several on a stalk. The leaves of the plant are evergreen. Dwarf roses are particularly suitable for permanent planting in conjunction with low-growing conifers:
- Dwarf pine,
- clam cypress
- or sugarloaf spruce
Care of the dwarf roses
Zwergrosen prefer a sunny, particularly free location and are generally wind-friendly. Due to the wind, the morning dew dries on the leaves and thus prevents mildew. Since dwarf roses also prefer cooler temperatures, the plant can already stand outside from May. As a substrate, it is best to use a loamy, sandy garden soil.
Miniature roses require moderate irrigation and should be fertilized weekly from May to June. The blooms must always be removed so that the flowering time can be extended. In the balcony box, dwarf roses survive the cold season best when the box is at least 20 centimeters wide and just as deep. In addition, the plants must be watered again very well in the fall. By inserted fir branches, the dwarf rose can be protected from frost in winter. If the dwarf rose is wintering indoors, the location should be bright and frost-free, at a temperature of 5 to 15 degrees Celsius.
The propagation takes place from mid-August to mid-September by cuttings. Zwergrosen are kleinblütig and grow like bushes. They bloom repeatedly and look best in pots, as bedding borders and in all kinds of rock gardens. The costs for the cuttings are around 6 euros.
Unfortunately, the dwarf roses usually do not smell or at least only very weak and some varieties are very sensitive, while other varieties are again very robust. The most robust varieties include:
- Dwarf King 78,
- Sun Child,
- Pink Symphony
- and orange jewel
How dwarf roses are cut back depends on where they grow. Individual specimens as colorful viewpoints in a rock garden, of course, should bloom as much and as long as possible, and that means in the mostly blooming shrubs that withered flowers should be removed. When planting, it is advisable to make sure that you get close to the small shrubs in order to remove the wilted flowers in between. Otherwise you will have to renounce afterwards only because the removal of the withered heads requires such dislocations, that subsequently hurts her back.
Equally beneficial is a cut for the dwarf rose, which decorates your terrace in the bucket, they should also be freed from withered flowers in order to drive out again. It can develop to its maximum extent because it has no competitors in the bucket.
The situation is different with the groundcover roses, which populate a larger closed area rather close together. Also, they would add more flowers if you cut away old blooms, but if you do not have a mini-helicopter that flies you on the waist belt over such a bed, that's really a nasty job.
But you can also simply leave the old flowers on the plant - they will mature to attractive fruit stands, which also look decorative on the surface. Or you can remove the whole withered inflorescence from tufted roses after flowering, then the bush rose can once again completely drift through and bloom again.
If you have such a robust wild rose as the potato rose on a really large area, you could even cut it with a lawn mower, this wild rose will cast out again.
Likewise, when cutting back you should consider how the roses were pulled:
- If it is a stand-alone, refined ground cover roses, which have been refined on a base, these roses are pruned like normal (noble) bed roses in the spring. However, they are rather lighted and a little less cut back.
- In these grafted dwarf roses can grow out of the padding wild shoots, which should be removed immediately, so that your rose retains its cultivated character.
- If you have planted rootless roses square meters on a surface, you can cut them back time-consuming and quite rigorously, with the hedge trimmer or in extreme cases with the lawn mower.
- These roses are usually pruned to a height of about 30 cm, which is of course not with the lawnmower, which you could use at most to radically "set your little shrub rose every few years on the stick," so they to new budding to stimulate.
