HARDINESS & ROOTSTOCK


SMOKE RINGS™ Miniature


(PPAF, Var: WEKsaclaego) A rose color so unique you’ll do a double take. Buds of warm melon-orange-yellow simply glow against a mound of clean, deep green leaves. As the buds unfurl, a surprising hue of smoky pur- ple blushes the edge of each petal, presenting an interesting combination of melon-orange ‘ringed’ with smoke. Excellent for patio pots as it blooms almost continuously. Eye-popping combined with blue or purple fl owered annuals. Grown own root.


Height: 12-18” Petals: 18-24 Flower Size: 2-3” Fragrance: Slight


Hybridizer: Bédard, 2011

Ruby Ruby™ HARDINESS ZONES & SHIPPING DATES Winter hardiness of roses is a complex


subject. Many factors in addition to tem- perature can impact rose hardiness such as planting location, cultural practices, plant health, planting depth and adequate winter protection. All of our budded roses are bud- grafted on Rosa ‘Dr. Huey’, a Zone 5 hardy rose that is widely used as a rootstock for grafted roses. ‘Dr. Huey’ was chosen for its vigor and non-invasive qualities. With the majority of budded roses, winter protection must be provided to ensure winter survival in zones colder than Zone 6.


catalog you will fi nd the notation “Grown own root.” Many of our shrub roses and also some fl oribundas and miniatures are very easily and successfully grown on their own roots. T is gives them the ability to come back true-to-name even when severe winter damage has occurred. For these ros- es, we will often list the zone at which the crown of the plant is reliably winter hardy.


T ere are some diff erences in the appear-


ance of bare root budded vs. own root roses. Our two year old #1 grade budded


roses will have a minimum of at least three strong, substantial canes. Own root roses often (not always) tend to be small- er in size with thinner canes. T is will vary by variety. T ey are grown for sev- eral months in pots and then lined out into fi elds for a season to develop strong root systems. If you live in cold climate areas (Zone 5 and colder), we high- ly recommend giving own root roses a try.


RUBY RUBY™ Miniature


(Plant Patent #15066, Var: WEKsactrumi) As the song goes “Ruby, Ruby, when will you be mine?” Once she’s yours, you’ll want to keep her. She’s a showpiece fl aunting big clusters of ruby-red blooms throughout the growing sea- son, and the ruby color holds to the very fi n- ish. Glossy dark green leaves that stay fresh and disease-free cover the low-growing, rounded plants. Grown own root.
