Varieties of Roses That We Carry

Knock Out Roses

The Knock Out Family of Roses are easy to grow and don’t require special care. Plant them individually among shrubs, annuals and perennials in mixed beds and borders. Plant them in large groups to create a colorful hedge or along a foundation to provide a bright border. For best performance, we recommend cutting them back every year in early spring.

David Austin Roses

British rosarian David Austin has bred these exceptional David Austin Rose varieties to combine the flower forms and fragrances of Old Roses with the repeat-blooming trait of modern Roses. Wonderful in every respect, they contribute to perennial beds and shrub borders, so there’s no need to limit them to Rose garden. They are also excellent cut flowers.

Drift Roses

Roses are a cross between full-size groundcover roses and miniatures. From the groundcover roses they kept toughness, disease resistance and winter hardiness. From the miniatures, they inherited a well-managed size and repeat-blooming nature. The low, spreading habit of Drift is perfect for small gardens and combination planters. They brighten borders, fill empty spaces, and spread delicately around established plants.

Drift Roses are low maintenance and will reward you with endless color all season long. They require no special care, but for best performance, we recommend cutting them back every year in early spring after the last threat of frost has passed.

Hybrid Tea

Hybrid tea roses are versatile in the landscape, as there is a variety to enhance any area. Shrubs are usually upright, lushly clothed in dense green foliage. They can range in height from about three to six feet, for a low border or a tall hedge. Many gardeners plant their favorite varieties just for cutting, but the plants make lovely accents in the perennial garden. Fragrance is often a delightful bonus!

Floribunda Roses

Floribunda roses adapt well to any landscape design. They provide a long season of colour, and can bridge the gap that comes between spring flowering bulbs and summer perennials. Bushy plants are usually shorter in stature, so they are perfect for lower borders or privacy screens. Feature them among perennials for a delightful cottage garden effect. Grow them in containers for moveable color on porches, patios, decks and balconies. Characteristic flower clusters are often big enough to provide a gorgeous bouquet with just one cut!

Shrub Roses (Landscape Roses)

Shrub rose is not an official class of rose, but rather a way of grouping varieties that don’t seem to “fit” anywhere else. These roses are generally very vigorous, with an engaging, informal habit. Many modern shrub roses are also grown on their own roots, making them much hardier than grafted roses. They are better able to withstand harsh winter temperatures, and can even come back from the roots after the top has completely died back. In the landscape, use them to create a stunning border or hedging, or as accents in the perennial garden. They will provide spectacular color in the garden and blooms for bouquets, with very little maintenance or attention.

Climbing Roses

As the name suggests, climbing roses feature long, flexible canes that can grow up to 20 feet long. Unlike ivy, climbing roses are not true vines, because they don’t have the ability to cling to something else for support. Provide your climbing rose with a trellis or pergola, and it will provide your garden with beauty for years to come.. If you choose to forgo a trellis, you can still use them to scramble over a crumbling rock wall or conceal a dilapidated fence.

Miniature Roses

Miniature roses are versatile in the garden. Create a colorful low hedge, use them in the front of the perennial border, or line a walkway with their fragrant beauty. Miniature roses are especially suited to container planting. Dress up decks with pots of non-stop color, or combine them with other summer bloomers for delightful mixed arrangements. Miniature roses have been around for a long time, but the old types would bloom only once each season. Modern hybridizing efforts have produced miniature rose varieties that bloom continuously all summer long.
