Top 10 Roses For Your Garden

Whenever people are asked which is their favorite flower the one that is most often chosen is the rose. Roses have been cultivated for hundreds of years so it is not surprising that it is such a popular choice. Today there are so many different varieties of roses that any top ten list will be highly personal and not everyone will agree with the selection. For instance Gertrude Jekyll which is one of my favorites is not on this list which comes from an article by Betty which I found on the Top Inspired website.
