  • Unique CharactersticsOwn-root roses exhibit phenomenal flower power and super hardy plants from a rose plug. Roses grown on their own roots are naturally hardier than grafted roses. In cold climates, new shoots that emerge in spring are true to type, not undesirable suckers below the bud union. These roses exhibit fuller more symmetrical rose plants with more fragrant, beautiful flowers. This rose gives the look and feel of old-fashioned romance. Big vigorous bushes with nodding clusters of deep rose pink blooms with intense fragrance make you think of old-rose romance, style and scent.

This plant was purchased last fall during a S.H.N. late fall sale. It went in the ground right away, it's now May 1st and it's about 4 inches tall. I have high hopes for this little plant.
