and purples. The colour here represents the rose's colour if grown in
sandy Norfolk soil in East Anglian weather conditions. If you garden
in a different situation then the colour tones may vary.

|Container roses are available in spring and summer and ready pruned in late summer autumn.|
|Standard Tree roses are budded in 'Standard' form at varying heights.
2'6" for half standards,

|Roses belong to many families such as the Portlands, Damasks, the modern
families and many more. Different families have different charactaristics; the
Damasks tend to be very double flowers with heavy scents, and the species
tend to be single flowers with mostly little scent that attract varied wildlife.
Roses fall into many groups which more or less define their function in the
garden. Groups include shrubs which tend to be full, waist height plants,
climbers which climb up structures, ramblers with grow quickly up to 15m (40ft)
or more although they tend not to repeat flower, and procumbent ground covering roses
which are useful for sprawling closer to the ground
Search by the estimated eventual height of the plant.
Plant mesurements are given as height by width. All heights quoted on the website
are guide heights based on mature plants grown in Norfolk sandy soil conditions under
East Anglian sun and so your eventual plant size may vary.
|Rose scent is so subjective that there was intense debate here at Peter Beales Roses
on whether it should even be included on our website. But as it is such an important
factor for many rose growers we have tried to provided scent strengths. These scent ratings
have been compiled soley by Peter Beales himself to try and give total consistancy through out
this very subjective topic. For example some roses smell intensely of citrus or myrh but
there are some people who can simply not detect either fragrance!
|Roses vary in thornyness from totally thornless roses like Zephrine Drouhin and Kathleen Haropp
through to very thorny roses like Kiftsgate and Mermaid, which are so big and thorny
they are useful for using as security barriers where intruders may otherwise stray! Most roses have some thorns and some are extremely interesting and beautiful.
|Where possible we have provided the date of introduction for each variety.

that the rose community can only guess at the age so we have provided an estimate.

|Small bloom sizes are appx 2.5cm (1") across, while medium tend to be 5cm (2") to 75cm (3") across and large bloom sizes can be over 7.5cm (3")|
|Some roses, especially some of the hybrid teas and species roses can bear very interesting
hips if not dead headed in the summer. These come in a variety of colours and can help bring
birds and other wildlife into the garden, as well as add a dash of much needed colour in the autumn.
