Roses at Magnolia Garden Center
Roses are the most widely cultivated plants in gardens and parks, and the plants with the longest horticultural history, since they've been grown in every part of the world for centuries.
Our first stock of roses arrive in early February. Additional roses arrive in spring. Some of our 2019 roses are listed below with pictures and descriptions further down. Call for availability.
Bare Root Roses arrive early February every year. Without the pot and soil, bare root roses are 30% off their potted price. You can examine the root structure to pick out the most vigorous plant. Planting bare root roses result in a well established plant before the blooming season.
Need help? We are happy to show you how! You'll be amazed at how a little branched "stick" will be producing beautiful roses by the end of May!
