A rose is a woody, annual flowering plant of the Rosa genus, in the Rosaceae family, or the flower that it carries. There are more than three hundred species and thousands of cultivars. They form a group of plants that can erect shrubs, climbing or trailing, with stems often armed with sharp prickles. The flower will have to be dyed in order for a vibrant rainbow color.
First, you need to stratify the rose seeds. Stratifying means keeping the seeds cold and moist for some time. This helps them break their dormancy and get ready to sprout. To stratify rose seeds, you need to put them in a plastic bag with some damp peat moss or paper towel. Then you need to seal the bag and put it in the refrigerator for about six weeks.
Check for Sprouts
After six weeks, you need to check the rose seeds. Some of them may have sprouted already. If they have, you need to plant them in small pots with potting soil. If they have not, soak them in water for 24 hours and then plant them in small pots with potting soil.
Caring for Seedlings
Finally, you need to care for your rose seedlings. You need to keep them in a warm and sunny place and water them regularly. You also have to fertilize them and prune them.
It can take up to a year for your rose plant to bloom from seeds. But when you see the first flower, you will feel very happy and proud. You will enjoy its beauty and fragrance. You can also cut some roses and put them in a vase or give them to someone you love.
