The bareroot arrived on time and looking good. It was a well rooted plant and has been in the ground for a couple of weeks and is just now starting to send out sprouts. It is slow but I'm sure it will do well.

Very Pretty

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

This one has been struggling since I plant it in early June. It's probably my fault because I was traveling and did put it in a pot until 10 days since I received it. I have to cut it very short and leave it in a dappled shade area for it to recover. But it has came back now and finally produce the first flower. Beautiful!

Elegant Lady Hybrid Tea Rose

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I have been searching for this rose for decades. I ordered the Diana, Princess of Wales rose from J&P back in the 90's but have long since moved away from where I planted it and couldn't find it again. This is the same rose sold under a different name. I just planted it and I am so very happy!!

Diana, Princess of Wales revisited -- still gorgeous and fragrant

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

This is a gorgeous, fragrant, large hybrid tea rose befitting the beautiful heart and spirit of a very elegant lady -- Diana, Princess of Wales. It has a new name in "Elegant Lady" but it is still the same powerfully fragrant, large, and muti-pastel colored rose. This is a beautiful, tall, and vigorous rose.

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.

From seed to market a new garden rose can take 8 to 10 years to develop. Every year, thousands of seedlings are grown but only a handful are selected to move into the trial phase. During this time, potential new roses are grown and evaluated in different climatic regions of the country.

When it comes to blooms, they are looking for improved flower form, unique colors, and strong fragrance.
