Shrub Roses is a classification defined by the American Rose Society as "a class of hardy, easy-care plants that encompass bushy roses that do not fit in any other category of rose bush.” This family of roses is large and diverse. They are usually larger than modern bush roses and have thornier stems, often with scented flowers. They may repeat flower or flower only once in summer. Many shrub roses are suitable for hedging as well as making excellent specimen plants.
