Double Red Simplicity Hedge Rose



Exceptionally Rust and Mildew Resistant

The best Simplicity for mildew and rust resistance.

The original Red Simplicity, bred by Jackson and Perkins' renowned hybridizer William Warriner ('JACsimpl') in 1985, was celebrated for its rich color, high bud count, and superior resistance to mildew and rust.

Double Red Simplicity Hedge Rose combines all the superior attributes of the original with a more elegant fully double bloom form. Arising in clusters throughout the season, bright crimson blooms form plush cup shapes over the green, glossy foliage and emit a mild, yet pleasant fragrance.

One of the most care-free roses ever grown, Double Red Simplicity Hedge Rose is a gorgeous (and easy) choice for surrounding a porch or patio, lining the border, creating accent plantings, or just about anywhere else you choose. Double Red Simplicity Hedge Rose is particularly well-suited to the more humid, rainy climates where other roses struggle, and can survive winter temperatures as low as -10 degrees; however, for the best bloom, you should use some freeze protection to defend new buds from spring frosts. Plant Double Red Simplicity Hedge Rose in moist but well-drained soil in a spot that receives plenty of sun, and Double Red Simplicity Hedge Rose will handle the rest. Growing a gorgeous red rose doesn't get any simpler than that.

I purchased this own-root plant very late in my areas bare-root season. I wanted it as my red color for my multi-color floribunda/shrub border/fence. It showed up spectacularly healthy. Wet, multi-branched, quite large with a fantastic root system. It grew very well in the pot I started it off in because I didn’t purchase it early enough in my season. Although I could have used a shade cloth or whatever else and put it directly in the ground. Anyways it did spectacular in the pot and it’s been doing excellent once transplanted to my border/fence in September. It’s branched out, grown a bunch of leaves and is effective with keeping pedestrians off my lawn. It flowers often and a lot. The red color is great. It’s a true red, not a dark red or pink-red. The flower, once open, is rather wide/flat. The flowers are beautiful plus they last on the plant quite a while. The plant for me was an excellent choice. No disease, no decay and super clean leaves that are plentiful.

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.
