It turns out that roses aren’t just the preserve of pretty English gardens. If you lack outdoor space but love the delicacy, fragrance and colour of this famed bloom, you can easily bring them indoors. Most varieties designed for interiors are miniature versions of Hybrid Tea roses. Their petite stems, leaves and flowers can easily bring elegance into your room scheme. Choose your perfect colours and promise yourself your own personal rose garden.

TRIO OF MINIATURES

You can combine your indoor roses in any way you choose. Here, three miniature roses in three separate colours have been put together in shades of red, orange and yellow. Just remember that these hardy and versatile plants need several hours of direct sun a day so a sunny window sill is the perfect spot. You could choose one colour with several varieties or create a rainbow. Let your own personal style be the guide then sit back and inhale the beautiful fragrance.

A SINGLE SPLASH

Here, a larger red rose with gorgeous green leaves has been used to create a dramatic splash of colour. Paired with this white washed wooden floor, it stands out in the best way possible. Given that roses come in a myriad of colours, you can easily find one that dramatises and enhances your own colour scheme. Don’t forget to prune spent blooms as this will encourage a much longer blooming season. Reduce watering in winter and let your roses hibernate till spring.
