Roses are easy to take care of, and since they are such wonderful flowers, it makes them one of the most popular flower choices for our gardens and even indoor flowers.
In case you were wondering which type of rose to choose for this summer, we recommend you take a look at these ten wonderful roses.
1. ‘Little Mischief.’
The type of roses known as ‘Little Mischief’ has the most wonderful deep pink color while blooming, and then they’re lighter pink while getting old! It is an everblooming shrub that has disease-resistant foliage and a low-growing habit.

Gentle with a light fragrance, the ‘Bonica’ roses can really make your garden so sweet and charming with their look. They make a good flowering hedge, but you need to grow them in full sun or partial shade in well-drained, rich soil for the best results. The roses bloom from late spring until winter when their light pink flowers are replaced with bright, red hips. The ‘Bonica‘ roses are almost disease-free.
3. ‘Mme. Isaac Pereire’
The ‘Madame Isaac Pereire’ roses are medium-sized shrubs that need full sun and well-drained, humus-rich soil to look this glamorous. However, they can tolerate partial shade and even poor soil.
