Hello! You probably know that roses have been cultivated for a very long time. If you look in the Heirloom Roses store, you will see that there are currently hundreds of types of roses. When I wanted to order roses for my garden, I was told in Heirloom Roses customer service that all roses can be conditionally divided into three groups: Old garden roses, which have a strong aroma and bloom once a season; wild roses, which are almost always pink; and modern hybrid roses, which are robust and continuously blooming but often have a lighter fragrance.
