Everything you need to know about garden roses Flower name: Garden rose Season: Year-round Colors available: White, pink, cream, peach, red, and yellow Care: Remove all leaves that will fall below the water line. While running each rose's stem under water, cut at a 45-degree angle about 1" from the bottom of the stem. Arrange garden roses in a vase filled with cool water. Garden roses tend to be thirsty blooms, so make sure to replenish the water frequently. Fun fact: These hybrid roses are one of the most highly-cultivated flowers and are available in dozens of varieties. Just like traditional roses, different garden rose colors have multiple meanings. For a wedding, we recommend white which signifies innocence and purity or pink which denotes grace and happiness. garden roses for your wedding Photo by Adriana Leon Average wholesale cost: Between $3.50 and $4.50 per stem depending on the variety. Why we love: Elegant and romantic, garden rose varieties have fuller blooms than traditional roses, so they make a more plentiful bouquet. And thanks to their lush blooms, many florists recommend them as a more-affordable substitute for pricey peonies. We're fond of mixing garden roses with anemonies, lamb's ear, and garden vine.
