A rosebush in full bloom makes a stunning statement in any garden. Even with their care requirements and thorns, they demand attention and create a beautiful sight that is hard to ignore.  

Red and Yellow Rose Bush

In my garden, two rose bushes have decided to grow in one place. I only planted the yellow rose and the red one, which has much smaller flowers decided to creep over from a planting that is at least five feet away. The two varieties could not be any different in both bloom size and growing habit, yet somehow they look great together and have lived side by side for years now.

I do prune heavily throughout the year, however, I never cut down my roses. Instead, I continuously cut back dead wood and try to open up the center to create better airflow.
