This year we’re introducing a new line of beautiful, problem-solving shrub roses named Grace N’ Grit™. Exclusively ours, we think the name says it all!
These own-root*, well-mannered roses, which we grow for you in containers, produce loads of flirty, medium-sized blooms with upright stems that are perfect for cutting (there’s the “Grace”). They also have outstanding disease resistance, are self-cleaning, moderate sized, and have been proven to thrive coast-to-coast in heat and humidity as well as dry, hot summers (and there’s the “Grit”). You would plant these as with any other container-grown rose (tips below).
If you dream of a romantic garden full of colorful roses but have struggled with diseases in particular and too much fussiness in general, Grace N’ Grit™ are the roses you’ve been yearning for. Here are the four (3 here, plus one above) we are currently growing–look for them at garden centers beginning this year.
*Own root roses are grown from cuttings and so develop their own root system, as opposed to grafted roses where the top and bottom of the plant are different varieties. Own-root roses tend to make fuller, bushier plants and constantly put out new canes from the base that are true to the named variety above.
