In the rose growing world there is some snooty terminology that you want to learn right away. Those bareroot roses that they have stacked outside Kroger right now? Those are known as “body bags”. You don’t want to stake your success as a rose gardener on those. They are often mis-marked, have very little root structure to help them get started, and the canes are coated in wax that isn’t good for them. Hence the deck is stacked against success in getting them to grow. You might still be tempted to stage a rose rescue now and then. Just don’t judge your rose growing capabilities by the result, that’s all I’m saying.
What you want to do, instead, is order bareroots from a good nursery. What you will get in the mail will look like Godzilla by comparison to those wimpy body bags. I have three such monsters soaking in the sink right now: Brigadoon, Marilyn Monroe, and Valencia. Or you can buy healthy roses locally in a couple of months. Rolling Hills usually has a tempting selection!
