Traditional & Climbing Roses

Roses are a beloved part of our gardens, with an abundance of styles and colors to choose from!

Climbing Roses: Add grace & nostalgia to any garden. Use them on walls & fences, pillars & posts, trellises or entrance ways. An added bonus is that they require very little pruning. Almost all are repeat bloomers.

David Austin English Roses: After more than fifty years of breeding, these combine the flower forms and fragrance of old roses with the wider color selection, repeat-blooming and disease resistance of today’s modern roses.

Floribunda Roses: Ideal for borders or containers, they are lower growing. With a cluster of flowers topping each stem, Floridbunda roses provide an almost constant show of color, and bloom more freely than hybrid teas and grandifloras.

Grandiflora Roses: Tall elegant plants that bloom repeatedly during the season, they generally feature clustered blossoms with stems which are slightly shorter than those of hybrid tea roses.

Shrub/Landscape Roses: Selected from a variety of classes based on their ease of care. Landscape Roses are disease-resistant, require little pruning, grow quickly to fill a space and provide a long seasonal show of color.

Tea Roses: Tall, elegant plants producing the classic long-stem rose. They produce individual blossoms and flower repeatedly during the season. Hybrid Tea Roses are one of the world’s most popular types of roses due to their color and flower form.
