Beautiful, hardy Shrub Roses and Hybrid Teas
We've specialized in roses for many years and helped to found High Country Roses, currently based in Colorado. Locally, we carry over 100 varieties ranging from the original rose species found in nature to the latest introductions in modern hybrid teas. Many of our roses are grown on their own roots, rather than grafted to a different rootstock, ensuring that the rose will remain true to the original variety.
Our roses include old fashioned varieties brought west by the pioneers, like 'Austrian Copper', and 'Hattie Burton', as well as hardy Canadian Shrub Roses bred to withstand our tough climate and bloom all summer. Our favorite Canadian roses are 'Winnipeg Parks', 'Hope for Humanity', 'John Davis' and 'Morden Sunrise'.
Every spring we get in a large, bare-root selection of gorgeous modern Hybrid Teas, Floribundas and Climbers from Weeks Roses.
We pot them up and grow them out to be ready to plant in mid-May. Among this year's varieties are classics like 'Double Delight', 'Falling in Love', 'Neil Diamond', 'Neptune', and 'Tropicana'.
