Can you cross different types?

Can you cross floribundas with grandifloras, or with hybrid teas, etc? Or does it have to be a floribunda to floribunda, or a hybrid tea to hybrid tea, etc? Please let me know. Thanks.

Hi Valerie:

With roses, the sky is the limit! There are no rules about what you can or can’t cross. Just go with your imagination, but use parents that have qualities that you like. The most important first step is to identify roses that set seed hips readily since many do not.

Have a great time imagining!
