About Heirloom Roses
What makes Heirloom Roses Different?
Heirloom’s Own Root Roses
Our own-root roses are first year cuttings grown and shipped in special pots, 6" deep by 3" wide, designed for tree seedlings. The pot allows a strong root system to develop and the rose will not experience the transplant shock bare-root roses do. The rose itself is about 8 - 10" above the soil line of the pot. The own-root roses you will receive are smaller than budded roses and grow very rapidly.
Own Root Roses Provide the Following:
- Healthier Plants
- More Blooms
- True to Type
- No Virus
- More Winter Hardy
- Long Life
- No Root Stock Suckers

All Our Roses are Virus-Free
Heirloom Roses has been a leader in bringing virus problems to the attention of the public and industry. Virus-free roses are healthier, more winter hardy, produce up to 20% more blooms and are more disease resistant.
Own Root Roses
All roses shipped and sold from Heirloom Roses are on their own roots, with an occasional stock plant sold at the nursery where they are clearly marked as budded. (This may be a stock plant acquired from a reputable source that monitors for rose virus).We do not ship these roses under any circumstances.
Own root roses are more profuse blooming, more winter hardy and there is no root stock to contend with
