Brigadoon Hybrid Tea Rose



Award-Winning Color, Spicy Fragrance, and Garden Vigor

Bred right here at Jackson & Perkins, and an All-American Rose Selections (AARS) Winner in 1992, the year it was introduced, this classic hybrid tea has blooms that only get better with age, not just aging gracefully, but maturing magnificently.

Appearing in flushes throughout the season, long, pointed, ovoid buds expand to create 5-inch, high-centered blooms, endowed with up to 35 petals in vivid coral tones, which deepen in intensity over the long life of the flower, remaining beautiful long after others have faded. The flowers smell subtly spicy making it an especially nice cut flower.

With an upright habit, the bush grows up to 4 feet in height and width and has lush, semigloss, dark green foliage. It thrives in full sun in beds, borders, and containers. For best results, plant in moist, well-drained soil. Spring pruning should include the removal of old canes and dead or diseased wood. Also, cut back canes that cross over each other. If you live in a warm climate, cut back the remaining canes by about one third. Colder areas will probably require a bit more pruning than that.

Remove spent blossoms to facilitate reblooming. Provide freeze protection in the spring with winter protection if grown in a container.

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I purchased Brigadoon as a potted own root rose last season, It is a fast grower,blooms continuous. The flowers are so big and full. I thought this rose was similar to Double Delight, but it has its own beauty, it doesnot look like double D,but it is as beautiful as Double D. I did notice a medium mild scent on mine. Came through the zone 6 winter with no dieback (winter was mild this year). Very healthy foliage and flowers last for some time on the bush, my bloom opened seven days ago and it is still going strong. Doesnt mind the rain or heat . It is also shade tolerant, mine is in the back of the garden under trees , and it still blooms just fine. this one is a keeper!!

I have had 2 Brigadoons since 2004, added 2 more in 2006. They have been prolific and reasonably healthy in extreme summer heat. In 2008, they produced 585 showstopping blooms in the Spring flush. Pictures are posted on HMFRoses.

Choosing Your Roses

Bare root roses are the most common form of roses for spring and early season planting, and come in two types: grafted and own root.

Grafted Bare root Roses
Own root Bare root Roses

Grafted roses, sometimes referred to as budded bare root roses, have roots that belong to a different variety of rose than the shoots. While the shoots will grow into the variety of rose you've selected, the root variety has been specially grown and developed for hardiness, improved resistance to common diseases, and improved resistance to certain weather conditions. The roots on any grafted rose you receive are usually already two years old, so they'll establish in your garden more quickly when planted.

Own root roses are grown from rose shoot cuttings and develop their own root system. Unlike grafted roses, both their roots and shoots come from the same variety of plant.

All Jackson & Perkins bare root roses are maintained in a suspended state of growth in our state-of-the-art wet cooler, so they'll be delivered to you with no foliage or blooms. The wet cooler has a uniform storage temperature set just above freezing and uses a fog system to provide consistent humidity of 100%, ensuring the roses remain fully hydrated and don't exit dormancy before leaving our facility. While you might see some variance in size, even within the same variety of bare root rose, all our roses meet the same rigorous standards of quality.

So, not sure which type of bare root rose you should choose? Don't worry, we've got that covered. We've researched which varieties of bare root roses grow better as grafted or own root, and both types can be planted in the early spring months, so just choose the variety of rose you're most interested in and get planting.

Though you might be surprised or intimidated when you receive a box of bare root roses filled with roots and shoots, rest assured, with the proper care, these little bundles will grow into stunning roses.

Container Roses

Container Roses

Container roses are typically available in 2-quart sizes or larger and come with established foliage that may or may not have blooms. While bare root roses should generally be planted in early spring, container roses allow you quite a bit more flexibility in planting time, from spring all the way through fall in many zones. Fall can be a good season to plant container roses because it allows them enough time to establish themselves before cold or freezing temperatures arrive.
