What is a Modern Shrub rose?

gwtamaraJanuary 1, 2013

Modern shrub roses are a very diverse group of roses with very little in common except that they are usually hardier than hybrid teas and floribundas and were introduced in the 20th century. Most, but not all, are repeat flowering and the shape of the blooms are usually modern. They can range from 2 feet to 6 feet and come in all the rose colours.
