What are hybrid species roses?

lynnetteJanuary 1, 2013

All wild roses are called species roses and bloom once usually before many other roses.They are called by their latin name but also have a common one too ie. rosa gallica officinalis or Apothecary Rose. The origin of most species roses is lost in history but some are modern ones such as The Penzance Briars which are improvements on the Sweet briar rose. Wilhelm Kordes also introduced species hybrids called Frulingsgold, Fruhlingsmorgen etc.. Most of the species roses have vigorous growth and only need pruning to keep tidy or if they outgrow their allotted space.
