Zones 9-13: late January - late February

Zone 8: mid - late February

Zone 7: early - mid March

Zone 6: mid - late March

Zones 3-5: early - mid April

You can select your preferred ship week at checkout. Shipping windows listed here are recommendations only. Your individual growing conditions may require a different ship date than what is listed - for example if you grow in a greenhouse or other enclosed structure, or are experiencing seasonal weather that is out of the norm for your location. This is only a general guide.

To protect and maintain the quality of our roses we may change your chosen ship date due to weather or other transportation issues that may arise as a result of the ongoing pandemic to ensure the roses arrive in the best condition. If we need to make a change to your ship date selection, you will be notified by email in advance.

The grade of the rose is the size of the rose when it is harvested from the growing field. The grades reflect the number of canes a rose must have, the size of the canes, and where the measurements to size them are taken. Choosing a grade really depends on your budget and personal preference.

Grafted Grade 1 roses are the top grade. They have three canes branched no higher than 3 inches above the bud graft and measure at least 5/16 inch in diameter. Grade 1 will be the most hardy plant because it has more canes. Grade 1 roses are the most expensive; prices decrease by grade accordingly.

Grafted Grade 1.5 roses are one step down. A grade 1.5 rose has at least two strong canes and measures at least 5/16 inch in diameter.

Grafted Grade 2 roses are the smallest grade. They have one 5/16-inch cane and at least one at 1/4 inch.

Own Root Roses are graded using standards from a different grading category than grafted. They are graded as deciduous shrubs and may have canes that are smaller in diameter than their grafted rose cousins of the same Grade.

GRAFTED ROSES: Grafted roses, also called budded roses, are roses that have a top stock variety and a bottom stock variety. The shoots, aka canes, that grow above the ground are a different variety than the roots that grow below ground. The top stock is “grafted” or attached to the bottom stock so they grow together as one plant. Why is this done? The bottom stock variety is grafted to the top stock to make the rose hardier and more healthy. Bottom stock is selected to help the rose have improved hardiness, disease resistance, and resistance to adverse weather conditions. 

OWN ROOT ROSES: Own root roses are roses grown from a single variety cutting that develops its own root system. Unlike grafted roses, both their roots and shoots/canes come from the same variety of plant.

WHICH ONE SHOULD I CHOOSE?: There is no one type that is “better” than the other. Both own root and grafted will grow beautiful hardy roses. It’s important not to focus only on the rootstock when selecting your rose as there will always be exceptions to any best practices. If you purchase from a reputable nursery, like ours, and they offer a selection of roses as own root or grafted there is usually a reason why they offer certain varieties as own root and certain varieties as grafted. Some roses do not perform well on their own root and some do. Some are ok either way. We have already done the hard work for you by providing a rootstock option that is best for that variety. Grafted roses can have a long lifespan if properly cared for. (and will certainly have a longer lifespan than if they are a variety that doesn’t grow well on its own roots) Own roots are usually very hardy in cooler climates however this is where it’s important not to just look at the rootstock and consider the other attributes of the plant like the zone rating. An own root plant rated to zone 7 will likely not be very hardy if planted in a zone 4. So select any variety and rootstocks you’d like taking all factors beyond rootstock into consideration and you’ll be on your way to a beautiful rose garden come spring!

Zone 3-5 Special Tips: You can grow grafted roses successfully in zones 3-5, but it does require more winter protection and care to ensure the top stock variety does not dieback in cold winter weather and stays viable for the following year. If you’re new to growing roses in zones 3-5 and not sure how a grafted rose will do in your winter weather, we recommend buying one or two and trying them out for a season to see how they perform in your climate and location over a winter. If you don’t want to take a gamble on grafted, we recommend sticking to own root roses as you get your feet wet so your rose growing experience gets off to a good start.
