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.

Love these beautiful roses!!

This is the second year since planting and they are flourishing! I was so happy that they were cold hearty as New Jersey’s winter lasted long this year. There are so many bulbs and blooms on my two rose shrubs they are just gorgeous! We planted them in memory of our two orange cats that past away in their 20’s last year And seeing the roses flower and thriving make me smile!!

First year didn't do much, but this year this year, it's blooming like crazy. The pictures don't do it justice. The colors are much brighter. It's beautiful!

Apricot Charmer!

I live in a hot dry climate (Albuquerque, NM, zone 7-B), so I was intrigued by the Kordes 'Sunbelt' series, that are supposed to perform well in intense heat. This little Soul Sister has done just that, settling in to grow nicely as a 2 quart plant in 90-105 degree temps without batting an eye (well, 'petal')... She has put out a whole new set of emerald green leaves and some very full, rich blooms that are densely packed and have lasted a long time. So romantic and sweet! I'm in love with this little charmer and can't wait till she grows up...
