Bareroot Roses

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

Grafted Bareroot Roses

Grafted roses, sometimes referred to as budded bareroot 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.

Ownroot Bareroot Roses

Ownroot 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 bareroot 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 bareroot rose, all our roses meet the same rigorous standards of quality.

So, not sure which type of bareroot rose you should choose? Don't worry, we've got that covered. We've researched which varieties of bareroot roses grow better as grafted or ownroot, 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 bareroot 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 bareroot 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.

Stunning

This is one of the most beautiful roses I've ever seen! Must have for any rose garden. Bought it as a bare root, and it took off immediately. Blooming after only about 6 weeks. Five stars all the way.

Very special

This is a beautiful rose. The color is a mix between red, brown, and orange. Just amazing. Just planted this barefoot in February, and now in late April I have my first blooms. The plant has deep green foliage and looks so healthy. Highly recommend

Bad in hot weather

This is the most intriguing prettiest rose I got last fall, but not in zone 7 miserable summers. No blooms and chewing-pest prone. Scanty growth. Hope it picks up in the fall.

Hope it picks up second year....

Planted in dedicated bed last fall but scant blooms in spring however, the color blend is captivating. The little shrub is pitifull, though. I hope that it picks up second year. Patience needed here.

Cinco de Mayo: never stops blooming!

I planted four of these last spring (2014) in the Houston area and they bloomed nonstop through the hot summer and even now-late December. No problems with diseases/black spot, etc. Getting a little leggy by now, but with a little shaping in January, they should be back in full form. Love this little rose! Color changes with temperature-the blooms are more orange-ish when it's hot, but have more of the purple tone when temps are cooler. Awesome rose!

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

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

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

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

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

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.




Step 6

STEP 6

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.




Step 7

STEP 6

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.
