A Rose For You

Founder Mike Shoup founded the An- tique Rose Emporium in histor- ic Independence, Texas in 1983 and is considered a key fi gure in the international renaissance of antique roses. A passionate proponent of the gardening life- style, he has appeared on over 100 panels, educating rosarians and the general public alike about the history and practice of growing roses. Before founding the Antique Rose Emporium Mike started a nursery, focusing on common woody ornamentals for land- scape and retail clients. Mar- ket saturation, however, forced him to seek a niche product in order to stay competitive. His epiphany came when he realized that the strongest, easiest, most beautiful plants were already growing in cemeteries and along quiet roads around him, namely, old roses that had survived de- cades of weather and neglect. He immediately became a “rose rustler”—a rosarian that saves and propagates the tenacious old roses thriving among the over- looked corners of the landscape. Shoup holds a Masters of Ag- riculture in Horticulture from Texas A&M University. He is the author of Landscaping With Antique Roses (1986), Roses in the Southern Garden (2000) and Empress of the Garden (2012). Th e Antique Rose Emporium has been featured in almost 200 press outlets, including Th e Smithsonian , Th e New York Times , Southern Living , Garden & Gun , and National Geographic . Shoup lives just down the road from the Emporium with his wife and partner, Jean Shoup.

T he perceived value of a rose di ff ers from one person to another. Roses are loved and appreciated for various reasons which makes the question of “What makes the perfect rose?” a very subjective question.Most likely it pro- duces fragrant, showy blossoms spring through fall. Perhaps it lacks thorns or has attractive features in the fall and winter. It’d be nice if the perfect rose came in multiple sizes, including climbing. And surely it must thrive in all kinds of weather, all while never succumbing to disease. Could it prune and train itself as well? Such a rose, of course, doesn’t exist … yet. Recent innovations in rose breeding have made many of these traits avail- able in one plant. Th e emergence of Knockout® roses, for example, has given gardeners a carefree, blackspot-resistant rose with great fl ower power proving to be a great stepping stone to making roses more desirable. Our mission is to expand on this versatility in all kinds of roses. Th ere is a rose for everyone. At the Antique Rose Emporium we continue to share our favorite roses and breed tomorrow’s favorites with a rose for you in mind. Whether you are

a connoisseur adding to your collection or a busy home- owner looking for an easy- care shrub, we believe we have “a rose for you!” What- ever the quality: cut fl owers, naturalizing along fences, thornlessness or intense fra- grance, we know you will fi nd your “perfect” rose among these o ff erings. “Our greatest aspiration de- pends on both the past and future—not only in saving and celebrating antique roses, but in helping each person fi nd and develop their own personal relationship with a rose, through fragrance and color with joy.”

yet rarely receives the necessary equal attention. With garden roses, pruning is best by means of shearing and shaping, as the rose is essentially molded to fi t the size and scale of the surround- ing plants in the garden. For shrub or bush roses in a mixed border, as hedges, or simply as specimens, shap- ing the rose is all the pruning that is necessary save for occasional removal of the dead or damaged canes. Use shears and cut the shrub rose back, shaping it in a form that conforms to its use or placement in the garden. Th e desired e ff ect is achieved by re- ducing the size of the rose relative to the other plants so the proper scale of the rose in the garden is maintained. For repeat blooming roses, this form of pruning always increases the amount of bloom and encour- ages new growth. Th is can be done not only in early spring before the onset of new growth, but late in the spring after the fi rst bloom and then again in the early fall. Roses grown in colder regions-zone 4, 5 and 6- may fi nd that spring pruning is all that is needed due to the shorter growing season. If you wish to enjoy the color and texture of rose hips (the fruit of the rose) then avoid shearing your roses after their bloom in spring and sum- mer. Roses reward the gardener with another bloom typically 4-6 weeks after pruning. For cascading roses, thin to empha- size the natural grace and beauty of the arching branches. Do not shear or cut back the same way you would do upright shrubs as it destroys the graceful habit of these roses. Training Climbers Climbing roses need some form of support whether they are placed against a wall, fence, or trellis. In fact, as beautiful and inspirational as

A several inch layer of mulch ap- plied 2-3 times a year insures fewer weeds, contributes to less water and heat stress, makes for a richer, more fertile soil and healthier plants. We use coarse bark on our beds, but pine needles, leaf mulch or any weed free organic material will do the job.

Rose Care Preparing Rose Beds Th ese roses can perform even in poor conditions, but will be their lovely best if planted in a favorable site with rich, well drained soil. Th e best place to locate a garden with roses is in an open area that receives at least six hours of direct sun daily and allows good air movement. Soil preparation will make a great di ff erence in the health and long term vigor of your roses. Adding a quantity of compost to the bed be- fore planting will both enrich a sandy soil and break up a heavy clay soil to allow proper drainage. Mulching & Watering We sincerely believe mulch is the key to happiness- at least in the garden!

Rose varieties that have survived for many years are usually drought toler- ant, but your plants will look much better in your garden if they get a good soaking every 7-10 days. Th is is much better than a frequent light wa- tering which encourages the roots to grow near the surface where they are more vulnerable. Deep watering will encourage your roses to hold their foliage and bloom better in the sum- mer months. A soaker hose or drip irrigation works especially well to minimize water loss through evapo- ration and to keep the rose leaves dry. Pruning Roses Pruning, shaping and thinning estab- lished roses is equally as important as planning, planting and cultivating,


these roses can be, they can also be the most chaotic if left to their own devices. Th ey must be trained. Th ey require diligence and persistence in order to beautifully embellish the structure that they adorn. Canes need to be tied, wound or woven onto the structure in a way that the structure always looks good. Th ose canes that are unruly or not trainable need to be removed thus thinning the rose so the structure is always tidy. For trellises, this is achieved by attaching the fanned out canes to the openwork. For pillar roses, you can wrap or braid it around the post. We recommend using stretch tie or jute string as they expand with the growth of the rose cane. Advantageously, manipulat- ing the canes encourages blooms. Climbers are breathtaking in ways shrubs can’t be, creating the romantic venues of the garden, dripping with drama, fragrance and emotion.

Tripods: Tripods are pillars with three posts positioned several feet apart at the base and tied together at the top. Plant roses in the middle and train them up all three sides. Or place one thornless climber like 'Lady Banks' or 'Zephirine Drouhin' on each post to create a hollow bow- er or cave as a play space.

Fences: Ugly chain link, chicken wire and barbed wire fences beg to be covered with climbing roses. Split rail, picket and ornamental fences can be accented with shrubs or man- nerly climbers. Pillars: Roses can be trained vertical- ly around posts of varying heights. A mailbox perched on a 4-foot tall post creates a small pillar. Six-to-8 foot cedar posts in a border will also support roses. Use chains or rope to connect pillars for a festooned ef- fect with draping roses. Rose canes can be trained in criss-cross fashion, vertically up the sides, or wrapped around posts; the more you manip- ulate canes, the more blooms they usually yield.

Pergolas: A series of interconnected arches covering a walkway or patio, a pergola can be used as an allay lead- ing to a feature like a seated area or a sculpture. Th e walkway can be brick, stone or even grass. Plant just one variety of rose along the sides and al- low it to cover the pergola to give the structure a sense of continuity. Trellises: Form screens or create large, colorful, single-planed displays with trellises. Th ey provide privacy from neighbors along the driveway or between houses as well as hide unsightly air conditioners, television discs and garbage cans. Th ey're also useful as barriers or dividers, de fi n- ing the space between a swimming pool and a patio, for example. Trel- lises can require rigorous upkeep if they're landscape features.

Vertical Supports However a climbing rose may be dis- played; arches, pillars, trellises, fenc- es, pergolas or gazebos, it will add height, depth and drama to the gar- den as well as soften the hard angles of walls and buildings. Arches: Connecting garden rooms or de fi ning entrances, arbors cover walkways from one side to the other, providing clear passage underneath. Roses can be trained from one or both sides; total overhead cover- age creates a dramatic presentation.


Antique Rose Emporium


Gardener’s Best 100 Roses Th e Antique Rose Emporium is devoted to the rose and its incredible garden virtues. At our Nursery and Gardens, we often say, “we don’t have rose gardens, but gardens with roses in them” which illustrates how importantly we feel that roses belong in gardens in all forms, styles and functions. Th is collection of 100 roses represents large and small shrubs that anchor the landscape, vigorous climbers that evoke drama and romance, roses for niche gardening, roses with fragrant nuances that di ff er from the ordinary, roses that are especially cold tol- erant as well as roses that are thornless or nearly so. Th ese designations illustrate each rose variety within that group based on col- or, shape and size of the plant making it an easy way to select a rose.

Large Shrubs Th e following selection of roses encompasses the most garden worthy plants in the garden: large shrubs. Th ey can be used as showy specimens in a perennial bor- der, planted in rows to create hedges or simply used as foundation plantings around the house or against a fence. Th ey also mix well with other garden plants in beds that embellish the landscape. All repeat their bloom from spring through fall and have varying notes of fragrance. Th ey can be easily maintained with light pruning in the spring and early fall to maintain an ap- propriate scale to the gardens in which they reside. Th e lower the zone number the hardier the rose (i.e. zone 5-11 roses are hardy to -20 degrees f, while zone 6-11 would be hardy to -10 degrees, zone 7-11 would be 0 degree and 8-11would be 10 degrees, as an average annual extreme low temperature).

Repeat Blooming Climbers No garden should be without a climbing rose. While shrub roses can anchor a garden and add interest to the beds, climbers are the OMG, and ohh and ahh of the garden. Th ey are the most dramatic, evocative, and ro- mantic landscaping features that a garden craves. One caveat, climbers need to be trained. In fact, as beauti- ful and inspirational as these roses can be they can also be the most chaotic if left to their own devices. Th ey require diligence and persistence in order to beautifully embel- lish the structure that they adorn. Canes need to trained, tied, wound or woven onto the structure in a way that the structure always looks good.* Th ose canes that are unruly or untrainable need to be removed thus thinning the rose so the structure is always tidy. Th ese climbers all repeat their bloom through spring and fall and most are fragrant. * see pages 3-4 for pruning and training techniques

Nuanced Fragrance Fragrance is the soul of the plant; it is the memory, and an emotion to that memory that binds and gives the rose its in fi nite endear- ment. Th is trait alone is greater than any visual beauty that the rose possesses. As Robert Louis Stevenson said “It is a golden maxim to cultivate the garden for the nose, for the eyes will take care of themselves.” Additionally, all roses vary in their fragrance, but those with a distinct and unique fragrance are found in this selection. We have attempted to describe these subtleties here, but understand that some of their allure is their elusiveness and one’s own individual perception.

TRAILBLAZERS Our Newest Pioneer Roses

Th e future of antique roses is just beginning to bloom! Th e Antique Rose Emporium’s breeding program aims to harness the best qualities of both old and modern roses, as well as some long-overlooked species roses in our e ff ort to improve the rose. Conventional breeding programs typically cross modern commercial shrubs with each other, which, from a genetic standpoint, stir the pot without adding any new ingredients. Making a better rose, however, requires a more diverse gene pool so that new crosses have the chance to di ff er greatly from previous introductions—a goal we meet by bring- ing previously unused species roses (many with rare, desirable traits) into breeding. Breeding with a new species presents its own challenges. Despite hundreds of years of rose breeding progress, many desirable traits of overlooked species are yet to be hybridized into repeat-blooming commercial forms. Some of these traits include autumn color, crepe myrtle-like peeling bark, fragrant foliage, and mossed or crested buds. Moreover, introducing a forgotten species into the gene pool may yield improvements in shade tolerance, heat and cold toler- ance, or disease resistance, especially to rose rosette—a scourge that is challenging the industry right now. Th e future of antique roses is a developing story, so stay tuned as we continue our quest to bring you your “perfect” rose.

2703 Always Hope® ‘Always Hope’ was named by an long-time ARE employee and cancer survivor. Th is daily mantra brought her comfort. Th is rose is certainly one of sub- stance as she blooms proli fi cally and bears a bounty of hips. Th is landscape showpiece is ideally suited for large containers or massed in the back of a border where a splash of color is needed. 4 X 4 feet Z5-11 R H 2711 Heavenly Ascent® Th is climbing rose deserves much favor. As a mannerly climber to 10 feet, ‘Heavenly Ascent®’ is perfect for a pillar or trellis where her very full, fragrant, cream colored fl owers will catch the eye (and noses) of passersby. Clusters of two and a half-inch blooms are borne o ft en through the growing season. 8 to 10 feet Z5-11 R Fr H

2708 Grandbaby®

Don’t put this baby in a corner, but rather in a colorful container or massed in a border planting. By marrying it with blue fl owering perennials, a stunning contrast could be cre- ated in your garden. It is unusual for a yellow fl owering rose to be fra- grant and bear clean fo- liage, but this one does. You will fi nd yourself smitten by this charm- ing rose. 2 x 2 feet Z5-11 R Fr Th is rose is unique and special. Yellow fl owers emerge only to age with pink and purple edges. It also has a fruity fra- grance with a hint of musk. Th ere are no lim- its to her use in the gar- den; a container show- piece, in a perennial border with yellow and purple bedding plants or simply by herself where she can shine! 3 to 4 feet Z5-11 R Fr 2726 Royal Sunrise®


2701 1000 Wishes® Rewarding is one word that comes to mind in describing this rose. ‘1000 Wishes®’ is probably the easiest of roses we grow. Th is large billowing, carefree rose has delightfully large, single coral pink fl owers. You can plant as a stand-alone beauty or, for a bold application, as a founda- tion hedge. Either way, you will “wish” you had more. 5 to 5 feet Z5-11 R Fr H

2709 Delta Gamma A ft er meeting strict color and fragrance guidelines, this rose was selected and named by the national Delta Gamma sorority. Th is enchanting rose has large fl owers in blushed tones of cream, yellow and apricot that contain an exquisite fragrance. It bears clean foliage and produces excel- lent cut fl owers. 5 to 6 feet Z5-11 R Fr

2712 Pink Magnolia With outstanding vigor and pro- li fi c blooming power, ‘Pink Mag- nolia’ should be a focal point in any garden. Th is rose is the most hardy, clean and disease resistant rose that we have produced thus far. It can easily create a large, informal hedge when planted in mass. 5 to 6 feet Z4-11 R Fr

2707 Femme Fatale® Like a Medusa, this lovely rose will seduce all those who see her. Full, hot pink colored and heavy perfumed blooms are held high on an upright shrub. ‘Femme Fa- tale®’ begs to be cut and displayed in a proper vase. Th is rose has shown to be backspot and mildew resistant. 3 to 4 feet Z5-11 R Fr H

2713 Prairieville Prince Two surviving roses that were found in a neglected garden, ‘April Moon’ and ‘Tess of the Urbervilles’, were crossed and gave rise to this peachy apricot rose that contains a wonderful myrrh scent. Qualities like dis- ease resistance and cold hardiness will make this rose the “prince” of your garden. Plant where you can cut, smell and enjoy the roses. 5 X 5 feet Z5-11 R Fr

2728 Twilight Princess® Th is is the darkest purple rose we grow, but it does require a bit of extra care. However, it’s worth it, once you smell the exotic and powerfully fragrant blooms of citrus and clove. Spurred by the idea of “how dark can we go?”, this cross of ‘Midnight Blue’ and ‘Lavender Crush’ isn’t a disap- pointment. 2 X 2 feet Z6-11 R Fr 2710 Wicked Sister® A breakthrough in breeding, ‘Wicked Sister® is the devilishly more successful seedling of ‘Abra- ham Darby®.’ She possesses all of the old-garden charm with her quartered fl ower shape but has an iron clad constitution when it comes to disease resistance. Goodness knows, we love this ‘Wicked Sister®!’ 5 to 6 feet Z5-11 R Fr
