Roses are types of flowering shrubs that are famed for their beauty, scent, and wonderful flowers. There are so many varieties, colors, and types of roses that is it difficult to describe each one. Some types of roses have simple compact flowers that can be quite small. Other species of roses have large showy fragrant flowers packed with dozens of petals.
Roses (genus: Rosa) are woody plants belonging to the family Rosaceae which is in the order Rosales. This means that roses are related to trees and shrubs such as cherry trees, raspberries, almond trees, and plums. There are also many different types of roses that are suitable for almost any garden environment. Some miniature rose bushes are perfect for growing indoors in containers.
In general, roses are classified by 3 main categories – modern garden roses, wild roses, and old garden roses. There are over 300 species of roses in total, with lower classifications of roses totaling thousands of cultivars and hybrids. Rose cultivars also come in almost every shade of color imaginable. Depending on the rose species, the shrubs may bloom once a year or bloom multiple times throughout the year.
Rose plants also range in size from small compact bushes with miniature flowers to large climbing roses that can cover trellises. Most varieties of garden roses are medium-sized shrubs that produce a multitude of beautiful flowers.
Over the years, gifting roses has come to symbolize many emotions and feelings. For example, a bunch of red roses means love and romance, whereas white or yellow roses can signify friendship, celebration, or joy.
Due to their exquisite beauty, roses are one of the most beautiful flowers in the world.
Types of Roses With Pictures and Names – Identification Guide
We have created an extensive list of different types of roses with their common names and pictures to help you identify what kind of rose you have.
This list of roses contains many popular, stunning, and showy types of roses. You will also find out about some of the best cultivars in each subspecies of rose and how to grow them to make your roses thrive.
The classification of modern roses includes all roses that have been cultivated since 1867. The first of the modern roses was a hybrid developed by Jean-Baptiste Guillot. This was a cross between a hybrid perpetual rose and a tea rose. (1)
It is regarded as difficult to classify modern roses, as many of them derive from Old Garden Roses and hybrids. Modern rose varieties are also very varied, which makes exact classification difficult. The most popular types of modern roses are hybrid tea roses, grandifloras, and floribundas.
Let’s look in more detail at the many lower classifications of modern roses.
Hybrid Tea Roses
The tea rose is a popular hardy rose shrub
Hybrid tea roses are identified by their long, straight stems and pointed blooms. One of the reasons why hybrid tea roses are popular is that they almost constantly bloom.
These garden roses produce well-formed flowers than can be up to 5” (12 cm) wide when in full bloom. The flowering shrubs can grow to between 3 and 6 ft. (0.9 – 1.8 m) high and produce a number of fragrant flowers. Due to the beautifully-formed flowers and sturdy stems, they are very popular for cut flower arrangements.
Hybrid teas are hardy shrubs that are cold hardy to USDA zones 7.
Some notable hybrid tea roses:
- Rosa ‘Peace’ is an award-winning rose with large fragrant pink and yellow flowers.
- Rosa ‘Double Delight’ has multi-colored red and white petals with a slightly ruffled look.
- Rosa ‘Chrysler Imperial’ is a beautiful example of a romantic red rose with citrus scents and double flowers.
- Rosa ‘Full Sail’ is a type of white rose that blooms from spring until fall and has a wonderful sweet scent.

Shrub roses have many clusters of flowers on each plant
Shrub roses are in a classification of roses that don’t fit into the other groups of modern roses. In general, shrub roses are hardy rose varieties and can include species of roses that bloom once a year or are repeat-flowering hybrids. Usually, shrub roses produce many clusters of flowers on each plant.
Shrub roses can grow to between 5 and 15 ft. (1.5 – 4.5 m).
Some notable shrub rose cultivars:
- ‘Fruhlingsgold’ is a flowering rose shrub that produces a mass of yellow and white flower clusters.
- ‘Molineux’ rose could also be classed as a David Austin rose. The yellow showy blooms have a slight musky Tea Rose scent.
- ‘Swany’ rose shrubs are a low-growing rose variety that is great for ground cover. Expect to get numerous white rose flowers on this cultivar.
Miniature and Miniflora
There are various types of miniature roses that can be grown indoors or outdoors
If you are looking for beautiful roses to grow indoors, then any of the miniature species of roses are great. These cultivars resemble hybrid tea roses but are just miniature versions. You can also plant “miniflora” roses along borders or edges in gardens.
Most miniature rose bushes grow to between 6” and 36” (15 – 91 cm) high and have small, perfectly formed rose-shaped flowers. Because these varieties of houseplant roses are descended from outdoor cultivars, they need periods of cold to survive. Some species of miniature roses are single blooming and others are repeat bloomers.
Some notable miniature rose cultivars:
- ‘Cupcake’ is a repeat-blooming type of miniature rose shrub with pink flowers.
- ‘Petite de Hollande’ is a beautiful example of a compact mini rose that has beautiful pink flowers.

These climbing roses can grow to around 20 ft. (6 m) and provide height and color in any garden. Unlike climbing vines, roses in this category don’t climb by sticking to walls or trellises. You need to attach the woody vines to surfaces to help them climb. When in full bloom, climbing roses can look spectacular with masses of pink, red, white, or yellow flowers.
Some notable climbing rose cultivars:
- ‘Blaze’ is a stunning climbing rose variety with deep red showy rose flowers that bloom from spring until fall.

Rambler roses can grow higher than climbing roses
Rambler roses are similar to climbing roses but are a different classification. The difference between species of rambler roses and climbing roses is their height and blooming habits. Rambler roses can grow up to 30 ft. (9 m) tall but they only bloom once in the season. However, some new rambler rose cultivars are available that are repeat bloomers.
When rambler roses bloom in late spring and early summer, the effect is truly spectacular. Rambler roses produce large showy clusters of small compact flowers with up to 20 per stem.

Tree roses are eye-catching shrubs in any garden. The beautiful rose bush sits on top of the “tree trunk” and lets you admire some of the most beautiful flowers in a garden at eye level. Many miniature species of roses also make good tree roses.
Rosa Polyantha ‘The Fairy’ has beautiful pale pink flowers
Rose cultivars classed as polyantha roses produce clusters of small rose flowers from spring until fall. Flowers on polyantha roses generally measure 1” (2.5 cm) in diameter and are usually pink, red, or white. It is not uncommon for some rose shrubs to have blooms on them for the whole season.

Floribunda roses have variety of colors including purple, orange, yellow, white, and pink.

Due to their vigorous flowering habits, floribundas are often chosen for landscaping and beautifying public parks.

(30 – 90 cm) tall. These landscaping roses are perfect to provide plenty of color for your garden along with fragrant scents and green foliage.
