Old Garden Roses

Old Garden roses are the predecessors of today’s roses. Some date back to the time of the Roman Empire when they were revered for their beauty and fragrance. Old garden roses have a delicate beauty and wonderful perfume not often found in modern hybrid tea roses. They are a diverse group from the stately albas with wonderful fragrance and great winter hardiness to the tender and lovely tea roses best suited for warm climates. Old Garden Roses comprise a multifaceted group that, in general, are easy to grow, disease-resistant and winter-hardy

    1 Review(s)
    Large semi-double 5" blooms (petals 24+) whose color is a lovely deep crimson purple. The petals have a velvet texture and are accented rich golden yellow stamens produced on a once blooming nearly thorn-less plant. Superbly fragrant. Densely foliaged. It is at its best in the spring. Its blooms look unreal, like they are made of the finest porcelain. Learn More
  • Rosa Mundi

    1 Review(s)
    One of the most famous of all old garden roses. Striking, semi-double 3-4" blooms (petals 12-18) with crimson background splashed and striped white and pink, set off by bright golden stamens. Blooms cover the once blooming, nearly thorn-less, compact, spreading well, foliaged bush. 'Rosa Mundi' was named after Fair Rosamund, the mistress of King Henry II of England. Produces nice hips in the fall for the birds to enjoy and is also shade tolerant; perfect for that dapple sun area. Good for zones 4-8. Learn More
