Description

Jackson & Perkins Introduction 2016 |Portland's Best Rose 2019

Complete your rose garden with a crowning jewel. Royal Welcome boasts excellent disease resistance and a proud, upright habit, but its real appeal is the blooms. Up to 4 inches across and packed with up to 40 petals, these spicy-scented blooms offer a complex mixture of yellow, pink, and creamy tones that resemble an idyllic sunrise.

Hybrid Teas are known for their impeccable form, but this child of Elegant Lady and Welcome Home takes things to another level, with 18-inch stems, a noble bearing, and huge, double blooms. You couldn't ask for a more impressive flower for your cut flower arrangements or specimen plantings. Jackson and Perkins is proud to call this spectacular variety our own.

Exceptionally disease resistant, Royal Welcome holds its beauty well, with dark, glossy leaves that stay unblemished. Like most hybrid teas, Royal Welcome requires full sun and good airflow. It thrives in even moist soil on the acidic side. Fertilize every 4 to 6 weeks through the growing season for the best bloom show, and deadhead spent flowers to encourage rebloom. In fall, let the last flowers develop rose hips to signal the plant to go into dormancy. In colder climates, provide winter protection. Take good care of this world-class cultivar, and it will reward you with years of abundant beauty.

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

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.
