Shrub Information

A quick guide to the different shrub family groups that we at Apuldram Roses grow.



These are the original 5 petalled dog roses which have grown in the wild state since the begining of time.

Canary Bird (rosa xanthina) Smooth yellow flowers on long arching stems.  Fern like leaves.  Some fragrance.

R. Moyesii Geranium.  The most widely grown and best known of the Moyseii family

R.Sericea Pteracatha.  A real favourite of Apuldram Roses.  Single white flowers, only 4 petals, that bloom all the way along generous arching stems, then are followed by little round orange hips.  The real beauty is in the thorns of the new growth, huge wedged shaped and transulent red, they glow like rubies in the morning and evening sun.


The Gallicas

The oldest familly of culivated roses.  Generally around 3.5ft to 4ft and midsummer flowering.  They don't bare hips but are very tough and hardy.

Officinalis also known as The Apothecary's Rose or The Red Rose of Lancaster.  Semi double blooms of light red, (I say dark pink) with yellow stamens.

Versicolour also known as Rosa Mundi.  One of the most striking and gay of the old garden roses.  A carnival of pink and white stripes.



Scent is the notable feature of this famiy of old roses.  They flower in midsummer, not good for hips and growth can be somewhat lax.

Isphan soft pale pink blooms and attractive grey green foliage.  Found in the middle east prior to 1832.

Madam Hardy an elegant and sumptuous rose of purest white with a rich green eye.



ne of the oldest families.  all have strong vigorous growth and grey green leaves.  Some have hips.  An Albs rose was chosen as the White Rose of York.

Celeste 1759 Semi double blooms of soft shell pink.  Tall upright growth, Fragrant.



A distinctive feature is the green, reddish and sometimes brown glandular projections all over the flower stalks and sepals.  These are sticky and fragrant.  All are around 200 years old and summer flowering.
