    Excerpt:

    When it comes to ornamental plants, the Rose Family is the largest contributor. Also known as the Rosacea family, it is made up of 2,830 species of plants. The most popular members are probably the roses themselves. Roses come in the form of Grandiflora, Multiflora, Hedge, Climbing, Miniature, Hardy and Hybrid Teas.

    Less popular, but still big contributors in the landscape industry are Pyracantha, Flowering Quince, Flowering Almonds and Spirea. Thundercloud plums and Washington Hawthorns are also great flowering trees used for landscaping purposes. Trees that bear fruit in the rose family are: apples, pears, plums, cherries, apricots and peaches. Also, blackberries, raspberries and strawberries are all members of the Rosacea Family.

    High Maintenance
    Plants in the Rose Family need to be spoiled and looked after quite frequently. These plants succumb to numerous fungal diseases and insect pests. Of the fungal diseases most common are Black Spot, Fire Blight and Canker. Insects that prey on members of the rose family are tent caterpillars, aphids and the Japanese beetle. Deer and rabbits will also eat the bark of the fruit trees, and chew the leaves of the ornamental shrubs in the Rose Family.
    Complicated Growing.
    The Rose Family is at the high end of the plant kingdom, meaning that in order to get another rose, apple or Washington Hawthorn tree, you have to graft a branch on to a rootstock. You may not just root a branch in the ground, or save the seeds and expect them to grow. To make matters even more difficult, if you want apples or pears, you must plant two different varieties that bloom within a couple weeks of one another to grow fruit.

    But, what would we do without them? Members of the Rose Family offer us a lot in the way of flowers and fruit. And although they require a significant amount of maintenance and care, they are well worth the effort.
