Why do some roses have thicker / thinner stems than others?

The shape, size, and growing habits of roses vary wildly between varieties, and naturally, some roses will have thinner stems than others. For instance, some of the older once flowering shrub varieties will naturally produce thinner stems than something like a modern hybrid tea rose, and a rambling rose will generally have more pliable stems than a climber.
Thorn count also varies massively between varieties, as some can be almost thornless, whereas others can be smothered in thorns.
When buying a rose from us you can be confident that we will only send out strong, healthy plants.
