Madonna Writes About English Roses, But Does She Grow Them?
Copyright © 2006 Wesley Berry

Considering that material girl Madonna has mad herself famous as 
a trendsetter, it's actually very likely that she does indeed 
grow English Roses. That's because, in terms of flowers, English 
Roses are relatively new to the scene and aren't found in the 
gardens of most people. In fact, English Roses weren't introduced 
until around 1969 when roses grown by English rose breeder, David 
Austin, first began to appear in the flower world.

Austin and other rose breeders developed the English Rose by 
crossing Old Roses (roses that existed before 1867) and Modern 
Roses (roses that came into existence after 1867) to achieve the 
best qualities of both. Specifically, the goal was to create a 
rose that:

 * Generated flowers shaped like Old Roses, like cupped and 

 * Bloom more than once per year.

 * Occur in many colors, including yellows that are not common 
   in Old Roses.

 * Have a strong fragrance.

The breeding was a success, and the result, sometimes called 
Shrub Roses, is gaining popularity. In addition to the desirable 
attributes mentioned above, English Roses can be planted as 
single plants or in groupings to be used as overall landscape 
plants. When they are used as landscape plants, it's a good idea 
to plant them closely together to give a fuller appearance. Also, 
an odd number of plants rather than an even number should be 
planted to give the grouping a more natural look.

Another appeal of English Roses is that many varieties are 
resistant to some of the diseases that are common in other roses. 
However, they are less resistant when grown in close groupings or 
in wet climates. Very wet climates may not, in fact, be the ideal 
situation for English Roses. This is because they often grow very 
large flowers that, when wet, become too heavy for the stems to 
support resulting in a droopy plant.

Because English Roses have characteristics of both Old Roses and 
Modern Roses, they may be pruned using techniques common to 
either type. If you prefer to keep your rose bushes smaller, you 
may choose to prune them back sharply every year. Or, if you want 
more of an Old Rose feel, you may choose to prune them less and 
allow them to take more of a shrub-like form, allowing the roses' 
natural forms to take shape.

Clearly, if Madonna is interested in beautiful flower gardens and 
with her recent tendencies toward all things English, she would 
be inclined to not just write about English Roses, but also to 
grow them.
