There are two mayor groups that separate Roses, modern and antique. It is generally accepted for roses dated before 1920’s to be antique . Even though, modern and antique roses may not differ too much, a couple of elements can help us differentiate them. Modern roses have big bright leafs with five leaflets, spaced through the branches and their shape is almost the same among varieties. The stem of the contemporary roses, armed with strong thorns, are straighter and rigid. Antique roses have leafs with varied textures, formed by a bigger number of leaflets of smaller size. On the other hand antique roses usually are more languid, flexible with smaller but numerous thorns.

Mayor classification :

Mayor classification The botanical garden is a place where plants are found classified, it’s a suitable place to find the different classes of roses . Wild roses The wild Roses are bushy plants that can be found in nature. Most of the time the geographic origin is referenced. Is interesting to point out that we can find wild species from the Arctic Circle ( Rosa acicularis ) but in the southern hemisphere we cannot find any autochthonous specie . The first varieties Some roses are identified with a single name without indicating date or name of the person that reproduced them. These are the most antique roses and belong to our vegetable heritage. In some cases their origin is still a mystery. Are they the product of human intervention? Were they born by hybridization or seed selection? Was it the bees or the wind? It was only until the XIX century that the first classifications appear from a few enthusiasts. If you really want to know the ancient ones you may refer to Greek or Roman literature Herodotus, Theophrastus and Plinio .
