2. Consider size. In addition to color, the size of the roses you choose is very important. Consider the height of your roses at full-growth.

While some roses may grow up until eight feet, other can grow up to twenty feet in height.
3. Think about climate. In order for your roses to grow healthy and mature, they have to be adjusted to your climate. For example, if you live in an area where it snows six months out of the year, you'll want to make sure you purchase roses that can withstand cold temperatures.
