Mailorder Closed for 2014

We have had extra-heavy demand for our roses this year and as a result, we have SHUT DOWN WEBSITE PURCHASES for the remainder of the year. You are welcome to browse the website to see what we offer, but any purchases for the rest of 2014 must be made at the nursery. We regret the inconvenience. We invite you to come see us at the nursery, where we still have lots of inventory of roses, including roses in 3 gallon pots plus shrubs, clematis and perennials. You will be able to order from the website starting next January (shipping will resume next April)!

About Northland Rosarium

Own-root roses in 6-inch containers in our greenhouses

All of our roses are container grown on their own roots rather than using the roots of another variety. The six-inch tall containers hold about 1 quart of root mass, which we have found to work very well in getting the plant off to a fine start. 

We see our own-rooted roses catch and sometimes surpass the grafted bush the second or third year. Grafted roses must have their bud-union protected in the winter, while we do nothing to protect the own-root roses. We are convinced by experience in our climate that most roses live longer and are hardier on their own roots. There is also much less chance of virus. We are careful to use virus free cutting stock. The other plus, of course, is the problem of suckers and possible transplant rejection, which doesn't exist with roses on their own roots. Our roses are shipped leafed out with a healthy root system. You do not have to plant them right away, but when you do they will start growing right away when planted properly. Planting directions are included in each order. 

Own root-roses have the following advantages:
  • More winter hardy
  • No root suckers
  • Healthier plants
  • Longer life
  • No virus
  • More blooms
