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.

So far so good

My roses shipped and were at my door withing two days. I was so excited. I got this beauty in the ground and it looked like nothing but some woody stems and roots. But it has been two weeks and it is covered in healthy new growth. My rose appears to be strong and thriving. Although it is early spring, March, and it will be weeks before I see any signs of a bud, I am extremely hopeful and cannot wait to enjoy the beauty of this gorgeous climbing rose.

Beautiful Rose

I love this rose and almost all of my roses were Jackson Perkins...either purchased and shipped or purchased local. They were over 25 yrs old, all grafted - by burying the bud union a minimum of 2” with about an inch of leaf mold and another couple of inches of pinetags for the winter - in all that time only had suckers maybe twice. You have to keep that bud union buried if buying any grafted. For hybrid teas - I prefer grafted; for climbers, ramblers, big shrubs especially those I want to peg in a pinwheel fashion, I prefer own root. The grafted ones did okay but own root does better because you get more basal branching and you know you are safe because there isnt any understock to worry about. But the real reason I wanted to write was because someone else (steph) had downgraded due to the use of peanuts. They also complained about cardboard but that is highly organic and recyclable everywhere - I love it when making new beds because it keeps the weed seeds from getting going when you disturb the soil. I pin it in place, wet it , and cut Xs to clear out cardboard where I have already made the planting holes - same depth as pot but 2-3 times wider depending on pot and plant. Once the hole is cleared, drop the plant in, back fill, make a watering mote, and mulch The cardboard throughly wet and mulched breaks down pretty quick and is good for the worms too. As desired. Don’t mulch too deep - you don’t want to cut off oxygen. I keep cardboard and wood mulch out beyond the drip edge of the mature plant. I use something like pinetags up around the plant itself to allow air and rain through but still keep weeds shaded out. On the issue of packing peanuts - some are degradable and biodegrade. Check with your seller to see what they use. The ones that break down are usually green. But check with the seller, UPS, FrdX to see if they have recycling bins for peanuts or want them back for reuse. Also check with your municipality to see if they have bins somewhere for peanuts and other foam #6 items like foam egg cartons. The other option is to check Earth911.com and use their recycle search. You enter your zip, the type of material (peanuts) and they will give you sources. So peanuts don’t have to be a lose lose. In some cases like around plants such as varied surfaces or orchids...peanuts nestle better than anything for protection. Sad but true. You can also check with the various orchid societies for your state and local area - many of us use regular peanuts at the bottoms of pots or in the middle because they add high drainage and the toots seem to like them. They can be sterilized and reused with the same plant when repotting so they last for years. Orchid supply companies sell these - maybe they will take your excess regular peanuts. We can’t use the biodegradable ones. Just a few ideas.

Loves Water
Patti from WI wrote on August 10, 2018

I fall-planted this in a ravine in my WI back yard to climb over our wishing well. In very early spring, snow melt submerged my rose plant. Then after the ground thawed, rains submerged my poor climbing rose plant for several days again! Amazingly though, it survived and thrived, faring better than my new roses planted in drier areas. This rose makes a beautiful cut flower.

Anyone can grow roses - all that's needed is a spot with 6 hours of sun a day as long as it’s morning sun. Roses do not do well in morning shade and afternoon sun. Roses are even well suited to container growing, so you don't have the excuse of no garden space!

Step 1


If planting bareroot roses, first soak roots in lukewarm water for 12 to 24 hours. If you can’t plant your roses right away, you may leave them in their boxes for up to a week in a cool, dark place. Be sure to sprinkle roots with water every few days.

Step 2


Dig a hole about 12" deep and 24" wide. Make sure it’s large enough to give the plant’s root system plenty of room to develop after planting. Loosen the soil at the bottom and sides with your shovel.

Step 3


Fill the hole with water. It should drain in one hour. If the water remains longer, dig deeper to improve the drainage – or mound your soil and plant the rose in a raised bed.

Step 4


Build a mound in the center of the hole to support roots. Set rose on top, making sure the crown our bud union (the point where the canes join together at the shank) is below ground level by at least one inch, or a little lower in cold climates.

Step 5


Fill the hole with two thirds of the remaining soil mixed with peat moss or compost. Tamp down gently with your hands. Add water, let it soak in, then finish filling the hole with soil. Tamp down lightly and water well.

Step 6


Spread mulch, compost or bark chips around the plant to suppress weed growth and help retain moisture. Water 3 to 4 times a week until leaves begin to grow.

Step 7


Your plants will leaf out faster if you mist the canes as often as possible while they’re getting started. Roses need plenty of moisture both above and below the soil to develop fully.

What to Expect

Bareroot RosesIf 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.

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.
