The goal of this rose sale is to promote “easy-care” roses in the desert southwest. Roses grown on their own root system are hardier and require less care than grafted roses. Old Garden Roses (antique roses), Earth Kind™ Roses, Dr. Griffith Buck Roses, and David Austin® Roses are rapidly increasing in popularity because of their long life span and natural disease resistance. Many are very fragrant, provide an abundance of blooms and come in a large variety of sizes, shapes and colors. These qualities make them adaptable to a variety of landscape situations. All roses are own-root in 1-gallon containers from Chamblee’s Roses in Tyler, Texas.
Earth Kind™ Roses are especially recommended. Earth Kind™ is an important designation by the Texas A&M University Agriculture Program given only to select roses. These roses have been subjected to rigorous testing and evaluation by horticultural experts and found to possess remarkable disease and insect tolerance/resistance required for this special designation. These roses do very well in almost any soil type and rarely require the use of pesticides (neither insecticides nor fungicides). In addition, Earth Kind™ Roses require very little fertilizer and will normally do quite well with only the addition of compost and good quality organic mulch added annually around the planting surface. Additional roses are currently being trialed to see if they meet or exceed the high standards of the Earth Kind™ Rose designation.
