Photography Note:

I am an accomplished, yet still amateur, award winning floral photographer. My favorite subjects are rose bloom smiles (flares in Australia) as you will see upon visiting my photography works section of this website. I have won many First Place ribbons as well as photographic excellence awards with the photography of rose & flower blooms which I grow, love & enjoy dearly. I call the blooms on my roses and other plants their “Bloom Smiles“.

I hope that you will find this site both informative and enjoyable.

  1. Hello Stan,
    I’m searching high and low for information regarding ‘spray’ roses. I’d like to try my hand at growing them but need to know a few key things. I hope you can help me.
    Let me clarify the type I mean; the flowers look like mini hybrid tea roses. There are multiple blooms per stem – all occurring at the top/blooming end so they look like a spray of roses. They are often sold in grocery store florist stands. They come in various colors. You’d think the flowers of miniature rose but the stems are much longer than miniatures and tho long are much finer/thinner than hybrid teas.
    Now,
    What is the species name?
    Rootstock available, from which company?
    Hardy in zone 5 western Montana?

    Thank you so much for your time and your valuable information here and elsewhere!

    • Hi Lori,

      Spray roses appears to be more of a florist and marketing term than an actual new breed of roses. Many floribunda rosebushes and mini-flora/miniature rosebushes bloom in sprays of blooms and can be trained a bit to get more sprays of blooms by doing some selective disbudding so that more of the buds left open at pretty much the same time. A rosebush named Lavaglut from Kordes Roses of Germany is just one that loves to bloom in such sprays, she has beautiful deep red blooms. Miniature rosebushes like Tiddly Winks and Lavender Delight bloom in masses of beautiful sprays as well.

      • Thanks so much Stan. I will check into these links you include. It’s not that I thot it a new variety. Just trying to pin down the species/cultivar so I can track down a supplier if plants that I might grow if hardy to my zone in Montana. I can’t help but wonder that the mass of them hale from south America where most the roses for the floral trade are grown.
        Thank you for responding.
