What is the difference between a Grade 1 and Grade 1.5 roses?

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 siblings of the same Grade.

What is the difference between an own root & grafted rose?

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, which may not survive well on its own roots, have improved hardiness, disease resistance, and resistance to adverse weather conditions. 

 

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.

 

Not all rose varieties are available as both own root and grafted. All available stock of own root or grafted will be listed for sale on collection launch day. Our website displays the different rootstock selections for clarity to the purchaser.
