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.

Daring spirit

I purchased this plant as a bare root and received it in late March. Since then, it has bloomed quite a few times and has beautiful foliage. Also, it has a pretty nice scent.

One of my favorites

Daring Spirit is one of the rockstars of the garden. Even in the worst heat, she's covered in blooms. Plus, they smell great! It is also one of the most vigorous plants I have and never has any issues with blackspot in the blackspot plagued Houston area. One thing to note is the growth habit is a bit sprawling and not very tidy. Be sure you give this one plenty of room to sprawl out.

Highly recommended. We followed the instructions in the packing and soaked in water first, then planted in healthy soil with some added rose nutrients. With regular watering it started populating leaves quickly. The first bloom is just wonderful and exactly like the picture.

Bought the rose here, planted it in early May in a very sunny spot, started getting FANTASTIC, beautiful blooms end of June. Very Happy, will order more next year.

I bought this rose 2 years ago because I love roses that have coloration like this one. Very beautiful once it got blooming and the show just kept going till fall. Getting another for another part of my half acre yard, up by the window of this room so I can see it when it's too hot outside for me to go out.
