Love this rose!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I bought two Happy Chappy roses two years ago. They are growing on either side of a pot of annuals. They have been healthy and “happy’ from the day I planted them. They bloom all summer and are easy to deadhead. I Feed them twice each season and they thrive, even up to 105 degrees. The cold snowy winters don’t seem to bother them. I just loves these little guys!

Chomping at the bit to bloom

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

The two Happy Chappy bare root roses arrived today. They look so healthy and robust with leaves sprouting on every branch. They are of far superior quality to the 6 pricey, but scrawney, roses I purchased from an English company and none of them survived the first year. Your "Catalina" and "Voodoo" appear to be as robust with strong roots. I'm very pleased and can't wait to see all four in full bloom. Thank you for providing high-quality products.

Bought them 2 years ago - very cute

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I bought 3 of them 2 years ago and they all survived and grew stronger in VA in at least 8 hours sun. They are so cute and are as advertised. They also smell nice. If I would have more space I would buy them again.

I bought three of them last year and planted them in the garden in VA. They bloomed and grew right away. They survived the winter and are in full bloom again. So cute!

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.
