"These roses are generally disease-free and most were created in the 1800’s. The roses have all been grown on their own roots organically. Our Care Card accompanies each purchase so you may continue to grow your rose in the natural tradition in which it began." said Greenewald.

New from Certified Roses - Three new roses that everyone will want to grow: 

Lavender Crush - A tall growing disease resistant purple rose! - An English-type Shrub from this side of the pond with a color and perfume that would make the Brits envious - purply grape to lavender tones blended with a reverse of creamy white. Clusters of very full, old-fashioned flowers bow down on graceful arching stems to invite you to take in the intense citrus blossom and rose aroma. 

Good Day Sunshine - America's gardeners have been asking for a good yellow climbing rose for a long time. Good Day Sunshine will give you color galore with big clusters of ruffled flowers saturated with the purest of deep yellow color...and the yellow tones hold well through the life of the flower with virtually no fade. Imagine the garden impact made by a mature plant loaded with clean glossy green leaves, laden with big bouquets of intense long-lasting yellow blossoms. It will bloom and repeat bloom in the first year. Can be trained to spread a good 12 to 14 feet. 

Miranda Lambert Grammy Award winning singer-songwriter Miranda Lambert continues to achieve monumental attention in the music world and has established herself as one of country’s most successful women. It's only right that the Miranda Lambert rose turns heads with its phenomenal fragrance, big blossoms and vibrant pink color. Every old fashioned flower is packed with petals of saturated cerise pink inviting you to bury your nose for a full whiff. A good-looker in the garden, this bushy full plant is a bouquet-making machine lending loads of long-stemmed beauties clothed with grey-green leaves. Portion of proceeds going to Mutt Nation Foundation
