June is in general the month for the display of roses and rose festivals. 

The picture above features the native rose No-ibara, called the Japanese Red Rose. It is a hardy shrub rose that is found in Japan and eastern Siberia. It grows to about 6 feet and snells really great. It flowers from June to September. Gardeners like this species because the same plant will bloom and re-bloom over and over again during the same year.

There is a general tendency for wild species of roses to be single – to open out flatter and have fewer petals than English roses.
