Please support these specialty nurseries with your patronage.

The Antique Rose Emporium - Ships 2-gallon own-root roses. Great selection of old garden roses, although they seem to cater slightly to warmer climates. Their website has multiple ways to find your roses by class, size, color, etc. Helpful descriptions and beautiful photos as well.

Chamblee's Rose Nursery - Good quality, 1-gallon own-root roses at unbeatable prices.

High Country Roses - Catalog has a good variety of old garden roses, with some rarities. Own-root roses shipped in quart-sized pots are healthy. Ships all season.

Northland Rosarium - Choice selection of modern and old garden roses, including Buck roses.

Palatine Roses - A family business based in Ontario, Canada. They offer the best selection of the newest Kordes roses, including the disease-resistant Fairy Tale and Vigorosa lines. The bareroots, grafted on r. multiflora rootstock, are impressive with lots of big, healthy canes and large roots.

Rogue Valley Roses - This nursery is the sole source for roses by Paul Barden. I've never had an opportunity to place an order with them unfortunately, but I would without reservation.

Roses Unlimited - A large and exclusive selection of roses, old and new. The best source for Buck roses. The own-root roses that they ship are one-gallon size, and I would say the best quality overall that I've seen. The owner of the nursery is Pat Henry, whose garden is featured in the book, Beautiful American Rose Gardens. Customer service is first-rate. Roses ship throughout the season.
