Description

All-America Rose Selections 2007 | Jackson & Perkins Floribunda of the Year 2007

A highly popular, award-winning floribunda rose, as ethereal and lovely as its name suggests, Moondance flowers heavily in continuous waves over a long season, from late spring to late fall. Its pointed ovoid buds unfurl in huge sprays of large, creamy white high-centered blooms with about 25 to 30 petals. The flowers have a sweet, subtle, raspberry fragrance. Borne on 14- to 18-inch stems, they are ideal for cutting. Just one snip makes a lovely bouquet.

Moondance is a tall bush that grows vigorously and has an upright, well-branched habit of very glossy, dark green foliage. Remarkably trouble free, it is disease and mildew resistant and heat and humidity tolerant. Floribunda roses are versatile and work well in landscapes, garden beds, borders, or hedges.

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

A White Rose with Personality!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Moondance is my favorite white rose right after Iceberg (I have both) - Zone 7. Beautiful, white lush flowers that glow from within and have a lovely scent. A little blackspot, but hardly a problem for the beautiful flowers. Get two - some for the garden and some to cut for enjoying inside!

Excellent

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I bought this for it's disease resistance and it's color. We planted it spring of last year from a two quart pot. This year it is 4 feet high and covered with disease-free fragrant flowers. It is a beautiful plant and grows more the shape of a hybrid tea, rather than a floribunda. Highly recommended!

I have been growing roses for 30 years and then, a couple of years ago, I discovered "Moondance." One of may favorites (up their with "Brandy" ) So many long-stemmed blooms. Gorgeous in a vase. A healthy, hardy, trouble-free 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.
