New plant

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

It already has a few new leaves and nubs on the end of the little branches, will see the roses probably in the spring.

I purchased this about a month ago and I have been very happy with its growth. I am training it to go up a trellis and I have had to restake it twice as it has grown well over a foot! The blooms are huge, fragrant, and show-stopping.

My climber was back ordered until 3/18 and has not been shipped and no update received. I don't know what to expect from this company.

Dont judge a book by the cover

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

These roses looked beautiful in picture. Just received and they DID NOT arrive in 2 quart rather 1 pint container. The bottom branch about 2 millimeters wide. For the price I paid its a joke. a miniature rose plant is bigger then this. The plant is so small I doubt I will see any blooms but perhaps my granddaughter will live long enough to see it, if it even lives. Even if it did get a 1/2 (half) inch rose it would break branch. I originally purchased 35 roses from jackson and perkins between 10 and 15 years ago. I bragged to everyone that although may cost more well worth it. NOT ANY MORE. VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH J&P Even home depot $9 roses way better

Gorgeous Healthy Climber

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I covet virtually all of the Kordes roses, with their breathtakingly romantic full blooms coupled with performance and hardiness, and when I saw Quicksilver's divine shade of mauve, I fell in love. The plant was delivered in the 2 quart size, with three huge and gorgeous blooms right out of the box. It settled in after a few weeks, and promptly regrew an entire new coat of leaves and buds, beginning to put out structure and some gorgeous new blooms. Already tripled in size after two months, this rose is exhibiting excellent climber form and is very healthy. (Note: I have fed this one, and all my roses with twice monthly liquid fish fertilizer, plus Superthrive, which I got from J & P, I'm sure it helps!) In a container for now, I have no doubt Quicksilver will be a prize specimen once planted in the garden next year. Kordes describes this as a 'mannerly' climber, ie one that is not overly vigorous, topping out at about 7', which will be great for my medium sized garden. Love this 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. Our rosarians are looking for rose bushes that have stronger disease resistance, vigorous growth habits, and clean healthy foliage. When it comes to blooms, they are looking for improved flower form, unique colors, and strong fragrance.
