Dr. Jane Goodall Hybrid Tea Rose

Description

A wonderfully formed bloom

What better way to honor legendary ethologist and conservationist Dr. Jane Goodall than with the naturally exquisite beauty of a rose?

This delightful hybrid tea rose is noble and passionate yet tempered with the humility of its human namesake. Just like the good doctor herself, this rose is just the right mix of strength and loveliness.

Each shapely 4-inch bloom is like a living snapshot of a sunrise with its heady pink petals around a sunny yellow base. The pink hues are lighter on the reverse so the roses are astounding from any angle. Generally, each fully double flower opens on its own long, cut-worthy stem. Despite preferring to be a solo act, finding clusters of these enchanting blossoms is not uncommon.

The architecture of the plant is itself a thing of beauty. The Dr. Jane Goodall Rose is well-branched and boasts an exceptionally attractive bushy habit. This variety grows to a happy goldilocks medium, neither too big nor too small, and suits virtually any size landscape. Its leaves are dark and very glossy, forming a dramatic backdrop for its dawn-kissed flowers. Once open from the pointed ovoid buds, the blossoms release a spicy fragrance that is distinctive yet not overpowering. This hybrid tea rose simply overflows with graces and it's impossible not to be instantly smitten.

For optimal garden performance plant Dr. Jane Goodall in rich soil that is both loamy and has good drainage. This rose is very disease resistant for its class and is quite vigorous on its own roots. The flowers last a long time and clean quickly leaving you with very little maintenance overall. The envy of any passionate rosarian, the Dr. Jane Goodall rose is, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful hybrid teas you'll ever add to your collection.

NOTE: Tree and patio roses are hardy to Zone 6 regardless of the rose variety grafted to their tops.

Very impressed.

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I bought 6 Jane Goodall roses. They arrived well packaged and looked healthy, but they were tiny. The smallest was about 2 inches tall. The biggest was 6 inches tall. I was sure the little guy would not make it. I planted them immediately and in one month they had all doubled in size and the tallest ones were blooming. I never imaged they would bloom as small as they were. It's rather amazing. The poor plants were so little the blooms actually knocked their branches over. Two months after purchase, they are triple in size and they are all covered in blooms, even the little guy. I am very impressed and I can't wait to see how they look next year. I will be buying from Jackson & Perkins again.

Got the bare root, and was hoping for success. After a rough start, it "blossomed" -- beautiful foliage and fragrant cut flowers. Befitting of its name!

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.


Jackson and Perkins One Year Roses

What to Expect

If this is the first time your are planting a bare root rose, you may be surprised by their brown roots and dormant stem. However, bare root roses provide the easiest and fastest way of planting roses without the concern of transplant shock.

Bare root roses may appear to be dead upon arrival, but the plants actually have the advantage of being able to focus their energies on strong root development rather than having to support an extensive and stressful growth of leaves right after planting.

Bare root roses are the best option for early-season planting. In fact, late winter is the best time to plant. Our bare root roses are fully established plants that 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. Of course, since they are not in soil when you get them, there's no mess to contend with.

Bareroot Roses

You can plant your bare root roses earlier in the growing season, since there are no 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 and no later than two weeks after that average date. Since they don't have to provide water to leaves or flowers, they usually establish faster than those that arrive in containers.

Due to the nature of plants and the fact that some are younger than others, there will be some variance in the size of our bareroot roses. However, they have all gone through the same quality inspections in order to make sure they meet the high standards we expect from all of our roses.

Gold Standard Stamp of Approval

Each Jackson and Perkins rose is individually inspected and graded to meet our standards for shape, viability, fragrance, and disease resistance.

Jackson and Perkins Exclusive Preservation Process

Our roses are maintained in a suspended state of growth utilizing a state-of-the-art wet cooler. By providing a uniform storage temperature just above freezing and employing a fog system to provide a consistent humidity of 100%, we are able to ensure that each of our roses remains fully hydrated and does not come out of its dormancy before leaving our facility. Bare root roses ordered elsewhere often arrive dry and shriveled. Through our exclusive preservation process, Jackson and Perkins is able to provide a fully hydrated premium bare root rose. Prior to entering the shipping container, we carefully wrap the root system to preserve the moisture and to provide a top-quality rose that is in optimal planting condition.

Gold Standard Stamp of Approval

Our Superior Bare Root Rose Growing Process

Our roses are hand budded by professional rose budders to ensure you receive a true-to-variety quality rose. This takes a special skill. These professional hand budders make sure the bud union lives and the rose plant becomes the premium Jackson and Perkins rose variety desired.

At the end of the rose growth cycle, when the rose plant has hardened off and is ready to be harvested, the roses are hand selected according to our top-quality Jackson and Perkins rose standards.
