Rose garden planting design

Planting design types

Roses are one of the oldest garden plants. They were, for example, used in Persian, Roman and Medieval Gardens. But the making of rose gardens, rosaries or rosariums, for the almost-exclusive cultivation of roses is more recent and may have originated as a feature of the Mixed Style of garden design.
