Start The Rose From The Middle
Towards the right of the page, start the middle of the rose by using straight lines with rounded corners.
Around the middle shape, add more petals with straight lines and rounded edges.
Add More Petals
Continue adding more petals the same way you have been.
Finish The Petals
Add more petals around the outside to finish up the flower shape. Roses aren’t perfectly round, so leaving the outside edges bumpy is okay.
Add Spiky Leaves
Draw some leaves with small spikes on the outside to fill the page.
Color It In
Roses come in many colors such as pink, red, yellow, white, and more.

Growing Roses in Your Garden
You do not have to be intimidated about growing your own roses. With a little understanding of how to nurture roses, you can have your own supply of beautiful roses.
What Tools You Need
It is important to have the right tools when it comes to gardening. You will need a rake for raking leaves and some hand snips for pruning.
You should be able to find your favorite garden tools and pruning gloves at the local gardening store.
Plan ahead and purchase roses that are flowering in mid-April. They will not flower again until late summer, so do not plant the roses too early. You can even choose roses that are in a variety of colors. Pruning the rose will prevent it from growing too tall.
Where to Plant Your Roses
According to the University of Arkansas Extension Service, roses have an estimated 3,000 distinct species. The variation in form and bloom color within a species makes it challenging to answer which cultivar is best suited for your area.
A good rule of thumb is to stick to a rose for which the green shoots are clearly visible from the top of the stem and you can easily discern the leaves and buds. If you live in an area that does not have a hard freeze, a landscape rose can be a great addition to your garden.
Consider your landscape, what textures and colors you want in your garden, what size beds you need and plant accordingly.
What’s not to like about roses? A red rose symbolizes love and peace. Purple roses symbolize royalty and wealth. And it’s hard to beat a fragrant white rose. But don’t overlook other breeds of roses. The fuchsia rose and tea rose are both wonderfully ornamental, but they also produce beautiful fragrant blooms. And of course, there are many native or wild rose varieties.
