Top Ten Roses

Lynn Anderson, one of the best looking Roses

We look at the best rose bushes for the garden.

Every gardener has favorite plants, and with roses the top ten list is a matter of debate as with all plants. Our list is of the best roses and most popular roses for the garden compiled from our own experience as well as reader input and search popularity.

For many gardeners roses such as Lynn Anderson, pictured right will be some of the best looking roses. However we also need to take into account disease resistance and perfume.

Some of these roses are old favorites, some are new releases. Includes Links to Rose Nurseries in the USA. Mail Order Rose Nurseries, Specialist Rose Nurseries,

Any guide to the Top Ten Roses for the USA is certain to create a little discussion. With so many great roses available it does come down to personal preference, but here is our selection. Feel free to disagree, even send us your own list.......

Gardeners Choice

Best Roses as chosen by our readers.

We went through all of the selections of roses and came up with this list, some are the same as our 'informed' selections, and other are very different.

All of these roses should be available online. After looking at the list we think we might need to buy a few for our own garden. Jude the Obscure and Sharifa Asma are two we think we are missing out on.
