All about
Homewood-grown Roses

We take pride in producing the biggest, healthiest, most robust roses in the area. The roses we grow begin as bareroot plants that we plant into 3 gallon containers in February.
We grow hybrid tea, grandiflora, floribunda, climbing, and miniature roses.

Homewood-grown roses are available for purchase beginning in April until we sell out. For best selection, visit us between late-March and mid-May. 
* To reserve your roses ahead of time, speak with Christina or someone in the nursery department.
We also carry a few select roses all season long, including the Knock Out series of roses like Pink Knock Out, Double Knock Out, and Sunny Knock Out. The Drift series of groundcover roses is also available in an array of colors.

Hybrid Tea, Grandiflora, Floribunda:

What's the difference?

Hybrid Tea

Most of our roses fall into this category. These are classic, long-stemmed roses with large, full blooms. They tend to need a little bit more disease control unless otherwise noted. 

Grandiflora

Somewhere between hybrid tea and floribunda, this type produces single blooms and clustered blooms. Though similar to hybrid tea, they are often slightly easier to grow. 

Floribunda

These roses bloom in clusters. It’s almost like having an entire bouquet on a single stem. They tend to be bushier, more compact, and somewhat more disease resistant. 

Climbers

Want to know a secret? Climbing roses don't actually climb. They can't twine around a structure or attach themselves. What this means is that they may need a little help growing onto the support you're placing them on. The good news is that they're much sturdier than true vines. 

Miniatures

If you took a hybrid tea or floribunda and shrunk it down ( flowers, leaves, everything) you'd have a miniature rose. Most of them only grow 24-30" tall and wide. They are great for small spaces but because they're so dense their one request is that you give them plenty of air circulation. 

“I must have flowers, always and always.”     ~ Claude Monet
