Bareroot vs. 2-Quart

World's Finest Roses

Have you browsed through your favorite gardening catalog or website looking for the newest roses to plant in your garden and wondered whether it would be best to choose bareroot roses or those in nursery pots? Or does it matter? If you’re like most rose gardeners, this question has come up at one point or another. And we want to help you find the answer as to what’s the best for you and your garden.

Bareroot Roses


Bareroot roses are an inexpensive and easy option for early-season planting. In fact, late winter is the best time to plant. Bareroot roses 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. And of course, since they aren't in soil when you get them, there’s no mess to contend with.

Bareroot roses may look dead, with their brown roots and dormant stem, but plants that arrive this way actually have the advantage of being able to focus their energies on strong root development rather than having to support an extensive growth of leaves during planting, which is very stressful.

You can plant your bareroot roses earlier in the growing season as well, since there aren't any 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. Since they don’t have to provide water to leaves or flowers, they usually establish quickly.


2-Quart roses should typically be planted in late spring and fall. They’re easy to plant (all you need is a trowel), and they provide instant gratification, as they aren't dormant and will have buds within a few short weeks, if they don’t when they arrive. They’re also perfect for transplanting into decorative containers and make an attractive gift.

2-Quart roses are usually nicely leafed out, and may even have flowers on them, which is a great way for you to know when you purchase them what they’re going to look and smell like. As you can see, there are advantages to both bareroot or 2-Quart roses, so whichever you decide is the best for your garden, we feel certain you’ll become a lifelong rose lover, if you aren't already!

24 Burgundy Iceberg Roses
Rose beginner from NE wrote (October 16, 2015):
In a mass planting next to the patio wall, these roses are amazing. The deep burgundy wine color and delicate fragrance are wonderful. These roses grew very fast this first year and were covered with roses from late June until frost. Daily removal of the spent flowers encouraged the blooming.
A great border of 24 roses

These roses are very vigorous. They have bloomed all summer and are still loaded with deep burgundy roses with white highlights at the end of September. They are wonderful in a mass. These were purchased this spring in the pots and planted the same day they arrived. They are two feet high and wide now and full of blooms and buds. Visitors to my back patio say "Wow!" when they see them.

This rose was just received mid March. It was it beautiful shape with leaves and already flowering. Only problem is that the flowers have no fragrance and are white with tinge of pink. Once I can put it in the ground, I will watch to see if these attributes(color and fragrance)change, if not I will be disappointed for that is why I asked for this as a gift.
tough little rose
Grace from PA wrote (June 18, 2014):
This rosebush was able to survive a colder than normal winter in Pennsylvania. This little floribunda is the first of my rosebushes to start blooming (this year it started blooming mid June) and typically keeps up into August. I only gave the rose 4 stars because I thought the rose would be purple as shown on the website. It is NOT purple. It is a very nice dark pink/red/maroon color. If you love dark colored roses that are early bloomers and can ride out rough winters without winterizing then this is the rose for you.
Late Spring
Karen from MN wrote (October 27, 2013):
The day I recieved my roses this year we had nine inches of snow. It snowed into early May in Minnesota this year. Was very hard to judge when to put the roses out. Especially when they were delivered in the Middle of April. I did happen to lose this rose to frost in May but my others I bought survied. I just wish the roses could of been delivered a little later.
Great Performer

I bought three Burgundy Iceberg five years ago, and am placing an order for two more now to fill in where my tired butterfly bushes are. Although not as purple as shown in the catalog, the flowers are beautiful and even in my high desert climate they blossom from early summer until late in the fall.
