A rose garden for all senses
What would a garden be without it? For centuries the rose has been the most popular and certainly the most multi-faceted garden flower in the world - and has shaped its own garden style with the rose garden. Filled flowers in fine pastel colors spread nostalgic charm and often an intense fragrance, unfilled rosehip roses cheerful naturalness, brightly colored red roses give the garden something royal, lush rambler roses romantic wildness. Since modern breeds have made the rose robust and enduring, you no longer have to be an expert to design a small or large rose garden yourself. Whether beet, shrub or climbing rose, whether English rose or wild rose, among the old and new rose varieties there is something for everyone.
The garden style
In the rose garden too, planning begins with the most uniform and harmonious design scheme, which is first written down as a sketch. The design style of the new rose garden can be based on classic models, but also very modern or emphasizes nature. An important decision in creative design is whether you want to make the paths and beds angular and geometric or rather organic and natural.
The arrangement of the forms to each other in the geometric garden is subject to a strict system: they are mirrored, symmetrical to each other or run along a central axis. Even ornamental patterns are very popular in this style. The rose garden looks clearly structured and clear through this design form. Known for this garden style are castle gardens from the Renaissance and Baroque periods. In the rose garden, these forms can be implemented well with bed roses or small shrub roses as well as hedging hedges and ground cover.
In contrast, the natural pictorial garden style. But here, too, a well thought-out design is needed. As in painting, a composition of form and color is created in the natural rose garden. Light and shadow areas play just as large a role as well as different heights and growth forms of the roses. The model of this style is the untouched nature, which nevertheless does not appear wild - comparable to the design of English landscape parks. In the near-natural rose garden climbing roses on rose arches, the wildly romantic habit of the Rambler and cascade roses fit.
Cascade roses are climber-grafted climbing roses, which then let their shoots hang like a cascade - here the variety 'Rosarium Uetersen'
Figures with climbing roses
Climbing roses enchant the garden with lush cascades of flowers. No other group of roses is so well suited to growing up on structural elements. In addition, modern climbing roses decorate the garden to its main pile in June with another bloom, which is usually preserved until the first frost. Because of its dense and tall growth and many fragrant varieties, the climbing rose should be planted mainly on seats. In the garden you can create with her a wild-romantic flair. As a screen, the climbing rose can surround such as a pavilion. The variety 'Kir Royal' invites you to take a seat under its full pink sea of flowers.
As a visually beautiful and blossoming demarcation to the neighboring property, the duo of clematis (Clematis) and climbing rose in the natural rose garden is a very good alternative to solid screens made of wood or metal. On the wrought-iron fence element, for example, the robust red-flowered climbing rose 'Flammentanz' paired with the perennial clematis 'Juuli' can grow. The special feature of the planting in combination with the perennial clematis is that it retreats into the ground in winter and only expels again in the spring. The rose, however, also shapes the wintry garden with its long bald shoots.

With their flowers climbing roses can also turn arcades in the rose garden into a colorful fragrance experience. More depth and vision they conjure up in the garden, if you arrange them as a flower color course from strong to tender. Wonderfully suitable for this are the climbing roses 'Falstaff' with dark crimson flowers and 'The Wedgewood Rose' with delicate pink. Both have heavily filled flowers and belong to the English roses. They are also ideal for a representative plantation on the garden fence.
With their long, upright and bushy branches, Rambler should not be missed when designing a natural rose garden. Gracefully they overlay old high walls or climb into the crowns of old trees. With fragrant creamy-white flowers, the Ramblerrose attracts 'Lykkefund' bees. A special eye-catcher in the garden, it is in combination with the pure white flowers of an old cherry tree.
Roses and their planting partners in the bed
Bedding and small shrub roses decorate the borders of classically designed rose gardens. But much more exciting and versatile is a bed design, if you combine the roses with matching flowering shrubs and ornamental grasses.
A composition of perennials and roses skilfully stages the prickly beauty. A plantation of Indian armchairs 'Thundercloud' and Beet-Rose 'Mozart' peppers the bed with rich pink. Fine blasters fit well with the rose 'Mary Rose' with filled pink flowers. An excellent Rosenkavalier is the semi-shrub Blauraute (Perovskia). However, as she prefers leaner soils, she should be set as well as the popular planting partner Lavender with a distance of 50 centimeters to the rose. The bright yellow of the milkweed creates a refreshing contrast to the delicate purple flowers of the small shrub rose 'Lavender Dream'. In this bed of color match the cranesbill 'Rozanne' and the sage 'Blauhügel'.
An altogether different color scheme and design effect has an elegant plantation of white perennials, such as lupines and white-bordered funerals with the bed rose 'Lions Rose' and the imposing cream-white rose 'William and Catherine' from the breeding of David Austin.
Only the right planting partner puts the queen of flowers in a rose garden perfectly in scene. Larkspur and the rose 'Graham Thomas' form the dream duo in the bed
The filigree, upright-growing leaves and stalks of many grasses form beautiful contrasts with the rose petals. Impressive design of the rose garden with grasses that color their foliage in the fall, such as rodent millet or various varieties of Chinese mint. Even the early grass blossoms set the roses in scene: The Lampuser grass 'Red Head' blooms in June and July with red-green ears and is a stature height of up to sixty centimeters not much larger than flowerbeds. Combined with the iridescent color shade of creamy white and light yellow of the bed rose 'Lady Romantica', the planting looks modern. Nostalgia brings the ADR-certified Beet-Rose 'Pastella' in duet with the straight-stemmed straws of the Mountain Riding Grass (Calamagrostis varia).
Scented roses: the spice of the rose garden
Roses are inseparably linked to their wonderful fragrance. Special scented roses such as 'Colette', 'Kiftsgate' or 'Gertrude Jekyll' bring gardeners and visitors into raptures. Correctly placed under windows, on arbors, passageways or seats, scented roses bring a distinctive flair to the garden with their choice of delicate, sweet, sweet or heavy aroma. When creating a rosary with scented roses, be careful not to mix too many flavors. Put some individual scented roses in scene. The sunnier the location is chosen, the more intense the rose scent is. Many insects and moths are attracted by the scent of the rose and swirl around the fine flowers. Unfortunately, for a long time, the fragrance behind the promotion of plant health and a splendid bloom has been traded on the market for a long time. New varieties now do both: a robust rose with a pleasant scent. Do not let yourself be led by the optics in the selection for the design of a new bed of roses - take a look through the large assortment.
English roses such as Grace are very popular for their intense floral fragrance
Figures with shrub and wild roses
Shrub and wild roses grow 150 to over 250 centimeters high and should therefore be planted in the bedding background. Because of their size, they are also suitable in the garden design for the individual position. If you want a luscious large shrub in the rose garden after only two to three years, you can simply plant three specimens of the same variety at a distance of 80 centimeters. They combine to form a shapely rose bush. The shrub rose 'Mein' forms many strong shoots and becomes 150 centimeters tall. A suitable planting partner is the dwarf privet 'Lodense', which discolors its otherwise dark green leaves in bronze in autumn. The privet can also be planted very well in the rose garden as a hedge and regularly cut into shape.
Small rose gardens
Most roses remain so compact that they can also be used well on small plots - for example as a compact rose hedge. In the natural garden, for example, vinegar roses (Rosa gallica) or potato roses (Rosa rugosa) are suitable. Who wants to save space wonderfully blooming shrub roses in the small garden, can plant them as high-stemmed roses. In combination, low shrubs or ground covering roses, also called small shrub roses are suitable. A dream in white is the combination of shrub rose 'Snow White' and ground cover rose 'Sea Foam'. If you want to bring the color orange in the small rose garden, plant compact shrub roses like 'Maja Oetker' together with the groundcover rose 'Bentheimer Gold'.
In the design of small rose gardens with heady flowering, attention must be paid to the color effect of the plants. Bright colors have a stronger luminosity.They make the garden appear larger and provide a dazzling flair even at dusk. Therefore, the multi-flowered climbing rose 'White Wedding', which grows compactly around a climbing frame, is very popular among rose fans. Dreamlike planting partners are Turkish Poppy 'Royal Wedding' and gray-wool Wool-Ziest (Stachys byzantina).

Not only a small garden but also the terrace and the balcony can be decorated with roses. The queen of flowers also feels comfortable in planters, provided they are deep enough. Cleverly you can combine a variety of flower colors and shapes. Very well fit to various Mediterranean potted plants and evergreen bookballs. For small pots and window boxes are also mini roses or dwarf shrub roses, which are only 30 centimeters high, for example, the variety 'sunflower' with simple white flower and yellow center. Beetroots need larger tubs - often the English rose 'Christopher Marlowe', which makes wonderful in tall narrow terracotta pots.
Decorative accessories for the rose garden
There are some decorative and useful accessories that should not be missing in any rose garden. Above all, romantically entwined objects made of steel or forged iron with a black phosphor surface or noble rust patina - from the rose arch and rosebeam over the pavilion to the Rank Obelisk - are a must. As pergolas and trellises also white glazed wood is used. Covered, neutral colors are important so that the accessories do not compete too much with the colored rose petals. However, small decorative balls in the glass or ceramic bed may well be colorful or at least colorful. A particularly fairytale-like seating area can be created with iron furniture, for example with small bistro tables or hand-forged benches.
Even with a small, half-hidden bust you can set a focal point that attracts the attention
Stone busts with angelic faces made of cast stone or natural stone look good against the delicate flowers of the roses. For example, place them on a wall ledge or next to a bench. These decorative elements can be placed in the rose garden as "eye-catchers" in striking locations, where they attract the attention of the visitors.
