Bareroot, Own Root & Container

World's Finest Roses
Have you browsed through your favorite gardening catalog or website looking for the newest roses to plant in your garden and wondered whether it would be best to choose bareroot roses or those in nursery pots? Or does it matter? If you’re like most rose gardeners, this question has come up at one point or another. And we want to help you find the answer as to what’s the best for you and your garden.

Bareroot Roses


Bareroot roses are an inexpensive and easy option for early-season planting. In fact, late winter is the best time to plant. Bareroot roses 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. And of course, since they aren't in soil when you get them, there’s no mess to contend with.

Own-Root Rose

Own-root roses are developed by taking a cutting from an existing stock plant, then it's planted directly into the soil. This type of rose is the same variety above and below the ground. They are easy to plant, typically hardier in colder climates, and can produce more shoot and blooms for the variety than if it was traditionally grafted or budded.

Bareroot roses will have brown roots and dormant stems when they arrive. Plants that arrive this way actually have the advantage of being able to focus their energies on strong root development rather than having to support an extensive growth of leaves during planting.

You can plant your bareroot or own-root roses earlier in the growing season as well, since there aren't any 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. Since they don’t have to provide water to leaves or flowers, they usually establish quickly.



Container roses should typically be planted in late spring and fall. They’re easy to plant (all you need is a trowel), and they provide instant gratification, as they aren't dormant and will have buds within a few short weeks, if they don’t when they arrive. They’re also perfect for transplanting into decorative containers and make an attractive gift. All of our potted roses are own root, unless otherwise noted.

As you can see, there are advantages to both bareroot and container roses, so whichever you decide is the best for your garden, we feel certain you’ll become a lifelong rose lover, if you aren't already!

Beautiful full green bush with at least a dozen roses at one time. Just planted in June! Already over 2ft tall. Love this one!

SO pleased with my order for this rose bush!

My brother served 4 yrs in the Air Force during the Korean War. . .I know, long time ago. So it was in his memory that drew me to this "Soaring to Glory" bush. It has brought me SO much pleasure! The bush is perfectly formed, and is putting out beautiful roses. There are at least 8 very pretty roses of varying shades of yellow. They blossom to a beautiful, bright yellow, and slowly fade to white. I love it so much, and miss him every day. Thank You, for all the pleasure it brings to me.

Love that purchase supports the AFA. I've been looking for a yellow rose for awhile and the donation clenched the decision. Arrived in great condition. Planted on the south side of the house and it settled in well. Had blooms within days of planting! It's a small plant right now, but it covers itself in blooms. It's really beautiful.
