Angel Face Rose

One of the best roses of the 20th century. I'm never without it in my garden. It holds its color and develops a pink edge on the petals as the day goes on. It has a unique and award-winning fragrance.
Lovely color!

This is a hardy rose, very little care, blooms profusely,looks great on the bush, not good when cut for vase. Blue girl is better lavender/blue, cuts well.

My garden has been graced thru the yrs with a collection of a total of 8 rose bushes (teas, arbors and floras). We suffered thru Hurricane Sandy. My gardens were drowned in high salt water for days. We witnessed much foliage in the area immediately turning brown. I was daunted by the thought of starting over with my passion for roses. I needed not to worry. Your beautiful, hearty canes are starting to burst with life of another season. I am elated. Thank you so much for such high quality roses. They stood in the face of a devastating event.

Back to Gardening Tips





Anyone can grow roses - all that's needed is a spot with 6 hours of sun a day. Roses are even well suited to container growing, so you don't have the excuse of no garden space!

STEP 1

If planting bareroot roses, first soak roots in lukewarm water for 12 to 24 hours. If you can’t plant your roses right away, you may leave them in their boxes for up to a week in a cool, dark place. Be sure to sprinkle roots with water every few days.

STEP 2

Dig a hole about 12" deep and 24" wide. Make sure it’s large enough to give the plant’s root system plenty of room to develop after planting. Loosen the soil at the bottom and sides with your shovel.

STEP 3

Traditional images for the holiday season: Poinsettias, pine cones, red berries, and glittering silver balls! It can be transplanted outdoors after the holidays, where it can grow to 14 feet high!

Dig a hole about 12" deep and 24" wide. Make sure it’s large enough to give the plant’s root system plenty of room to develop after planting. Loosen the soil at the bottom and sides with your shovel.

STEP 3

Fill the hole with water. It should drain in one hour. If the water remains longer, dig deeper to improve the drainage – or mound your soil and plant the rose in a raised bed.

STEP 4

Build a mound in the center of the hole to support roots. Set rose on top, making sure the crown (the point where the canes join together at the shank) is at ground level, or a little lower in cold climates.

STEP 5

Fill the hole with two thirds of the remaining soil mixed with peat moss or compost. Tamp down gently with your hands. Add water, let it soak in, then finish filling the hole with soil. Tamp down lightly and water well.

Spread mulch, compost or bark chips around the plant to suppress weed growth and help retain moisture. Water 3 to 4 times a week until leaves begin to grow.

Your plants will leaf out faster if you mist the canes as often as possible while they’re getting started. Roses need plenty of moisture both above and below the soil to develop fully.

What to Expect
If this is the first time your are planting a bare root rose, you may be surprised by their brown roots and dormant stem. However, bare root roses provide the easiest and fastest way of planting roses without the concern of transplant shock.

Bare root roses may appear to be dead upon arrival, but the plants actually have the advantage of being able to focus their energies on strong root development rather than having to support an extensive and stressful growth of leaves right after planting.

Bare root roses are the best option for early-season planting. In fact, late winter is the best time to plant. Our bare root roses are fully established plants that meet the highest industry standards. They arrive dormant, which makes them ideal for planting. The roots get to acclimate to native soil, as opposed to the packaged soil. Of course, since they are not in soil when you get them, there's no mess to contend with.

You can plant your bare root roses earlier in the growing season, since there are no leaves to get nipped back by frost. They can typically be planted as early as six weeks before your area's last frost date in the spring and no later than two weeks after that average date. Since they don't have to provide water to leaves or flowers, they usually establish faster than those that arrive in containers.

Due to the nature of plants and the fact that some are younger than others, there will be some variance in the size of our bareroot roses. However, they have all gone through the same quality inspections in order to make sure they meet the high standards we expect from all of our roses.

Each Jackson and Perkins rose is individually inspected and graded to meet our standards for shape, viability, fragrance, and disease resistance.
Jackson and Perkins Exclusive Preservation Process
Our roses are maintained in a suspended state of growth utilizing a state-of-the-art wet cooler. By providing a uniform storage temperature just above freezing and employing a fog system to provide a consistent humidity of 100%, we are able to ensure that each of our roses remains fully hydrated and does not come out of its dormancy before leaving our facility. Bare root roses ordered elsewhere often arrive dry and shriveled. Through our exclusive preservation process, Jackson and Perkins is able to provide a fully hydrated premium bare root rose. Prior to entering the shipping container, we carefully wrap the root system to preserve the moisture and to provide a top-quality rose that is in optimal planting condition.

World's Finest Roses
Our Superior Bare Root Rose Growing Process
Our roses are hand budded by professional rose budders to ensure you receive a true-to-variety quality rose. This takes a special skill. These professional hand budders make sure the bud union lives and the rose plant becomes the premium Jackson and Perkins rose variety desired.

At the end of the rose growth cycle, when the rose plant has hardened off and is ready to be harvested, the roses are hand selected according to our top-quality Jackson and Perkins rose standards.
