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.

In my first review I said the roses looked "simple", but maybe the plant's first-year blooms were underdeveloped, because the blooms it's putting out this spring are full and beautiful. I wouldn't call them simple at all. And the color is still magnificent.

I planted the 2 quart own root rose last October, and I had been anxiously awaiting the first bloom. The plant is growing beautifully, sending up new strong canes, with lots of big buds. One bloom so far, but what a bloom it is!!!The color (which often varies from catalogs due to soil and weather conditions) did not disappoint. In fact...I was stunned at how accurate it was!The deep Apricot color almost glows. And held its color for days and days, softening slightly, until it finally after 10 days it was a soft yellow with apricot edges trimmed in blush. This is my favorite color rose, and the lasting ability in direct sun,(planted on the Southwest side of my house) in Arizona, no less, proves the African Sunbelt is a winner!(I will admit, full disclosure, it is only spring in AZ, temps are only about 80 degrees. But I believe it will hold up in summer when we top 100!)

wonderful color

I absolutely love the coloring of these roses. The description says the blooms don't fade, but it does seem to me that the roses are more orange when they first open, and more yellow as they age. The blooms have a simple look when they're fully open.
