Jackson & Perkins Introduction 2007 | Delightful Licorice Fragrance

Say "Welcome Home" to new homeowners, returning veterans, a new baby coming home from the hospital, or for no occasion at all to any of your rose-growing friends with this big, free-flowering, beautiful hybrid tea. Welcome Home is over-the-top in size, flower production, color, and fragrance. You could not imagine a more cheerful addition to the sunny garden.

Bred right here at Jackson & Perkins and introduced by our own Keith Zary as part of the Ultimate Rose Collection in 2007, Welcome Home offers enormous 4-inch blooms packed with fragrant light yellow petals. The scent is spicy licorice, and the form is classic hybrid tea: pointed ovoid buds slowly unfurl into high-centered blooms with tightly-spaced whorls of soft, recurved petals.

But Welcome Home has a surprise or two up its sleeve. The new blooms open with peachy pink centers, then gradually turn yellow as they mature. This means that when you see a newly blooming shrub, you are likely to find flowers in all stages of turning from one soft pastel tone to another before deepening and brightening.

Welcome Home blooms in waves all summer, the flowers typically borne one per long stem. Excellent for the vase, they share their anise scent with the entire room, and perfume the garden bed nicely. This is a large hybrid tea, fully 5 to 6 feet tall and 3 to 4 feet wide, so it makes a lovely hedge as well as a back-of-the-border standout. And there are armloads of blooms to be enjoyed all summer long.

This hybrid tea is the product of two other superb yellow-flowered varieties: its seed parent is Sun Goddess from our own Bill Warriner, a wonderfully fragrant, rich yellow rose. The pollen parent is the French hybrid tea O Sole Mio®, a beautifully formed rose. No wonder Welcome Home is suffused with rich color and scent. Make a home for it in your landscape this season, and give it as a long-lasting, living gift to anyone you know who is returning to their home (and garden) after an absence. It will be treasured by all who grow it.

Great name!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

The name of this rose is truly inspiring. I purchased two of these roses - one for the front of the house and one for the back. My husband and I are both Navy Veterans and every time we come home we wanted to see this beautiful rose as a reminder of home when we are coming and going. I bought them over a month ago and I'm waiting for it to bloom in the next few months, but again the picture and name alone gives such a tranquility and peace of home -yellow is calming and cheery. Thanks J&P!

Root stock

This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

I have been a customer for decades and my only complaint is that they don't tell you a hybrid tea rose can revert to its root stock in a cold snap so you can take very simple necessary steps to prevent it from happening.


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.
