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. Rose petals were used liberally by the wealthy at celebrations. Rose perfume was coveted by the very rich. 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 with most providing fragrance for the garden and home.

  6. Quatre Saisons

    Quatre Saisons

    Price From: $17.50

    Out of stock

    The rose of four seasons. We chose the name that is used in England. There is confusion as to whether this and r. damascena semperflorens are the same. Our two varieties are definitely different. 'Quatre Saisons' is the oldest repeat-flowering European rose. Its gracefully beautiful, double, ruffled 3" blooms (petals 18+) of rich clear pink are blessed with a wonderful wine fragrance. A spreading bush with grey-green foliage. Learn More
