Rose Boxes - What Are They and How Do You Care For Them?

There are various different types of rose plants, but there are two by far that is the most commonly grown - the rose plant and the rose tree. Both have different needs and requirements and depending on your location you will be able to grow these two differently. This article is going to take a look at the differences between rose trees and rose plants.

First of all, let's have a look at what a rose tree looks like. This includes the shape of the leaves, the form of the branches and the height of the branches. This rose tree is typically tall and can sometimes even exceed forty feet tall and so a rose box, which is essentially a small version of a rose tree, is perfect for an apartment balcony or deck.

The size of the rose plant is going to be dependent on the amount of light it gets in the area where you live. If you live in a warm part of the country with lots of sun then you should get a larger rose plant because it will need to soak up more sunlight. If you live in a colder area then a smaller rose bush or box will be suitable. One other thing you might want to know is that roses don't like heavy shade.

So, what about rose boxes? Are they the same as rose plants? No, they are not. The rose plant is typically going to be four to five feet high, while rose boxes will be much smaller. You also have to consider the fact that roses do not like direct sunlight.

When it comes to caring for a rose box then you have to consider pruning as this is very important. Pruning your rose plant or rose box will help to keep its size down and also keep the growth pattern going. Roses will bloom for one year only so it is very important to make sure that you do not cut any of the flower stems during that time, otherwise the rose flower could begin to die back.
