When looking at the details of our products some of the items will have a Care Level. This is an indicator of the difficulty that a gardener might have when growing and caring for that particular item. Here is a description of what each Care Level mean:

1 = Easy - these items are the easiest crops to grow. They are typically quick to mature and need little care.

2 = Moderately Easy - these items are generally easy, but a bit more demanding or longer in crop time than 1s.

3 = Normal - these items include the bulk of plants transplanted to the garden as dormant bare root or potted plants.

4 = Somewhat Difficult - these items have certain needs or requirements that must be met to have success with them. These may include specific soil requirements, regular pruning at the proper time of year, or preventative spraying for pest and disease control. Roses are generally category level 4.

5 = Difficult - these items can be challenging to grow, as they have very specific site requirements or environmental needs that must be met in order for them to grow well.

A Grade 1 rose, is to have at least 3 strong canes of 5/16 inch (0.8 cm) in caliper and up, branched not higher than 3 inches (8 cm) from the bud union.

Hybrid Tea: Mostly single roses that are borne on single stems; many are long-stemmed with tight buds and good-sized blooms that average 3 to 5 inches in diameter. Plants may be grafted or grown on their own roots. Hybrid tea roses are most popular type for cut flowers, and often possess fragrance and offer classic beauty. Plant sizes are quite variable from 2-3 ft. up to 6 ft. plus.

Floribunda: Crosses between hybrid tea and polyantha roses. Stems typically produce a cluster of blooms each with hybrid tea type shape. Floribunda cultivars are available in a wide range of bloom colors with varying degrees of fragrance. Most are reliable re-bloomers. Plants are generally small to med. sized staying in the 3 to 5 ft. range.

Grandiflora: Crosses between hybrid tea and floribunda roses. Grandiflora roses typically possess the qualities of both parental types. Classic large, showy blooms that may be borne singularly or clustered. Plants are generally large, vigorous and grow in a more upright habit than hybrid tea roses.

Polyantha: Shrubs that bloom prolifically in clusters or sprays of dainty flowers that are typically in pastel shades of pink, white or red. Polyantha roses are generally reliable, low-maintenance and hardy. Most are ideal for container gardens and have been used by breeders for generations to create many special floribundas, shrub and groundcover rose cultivars.

Miniature: Mini roses have similar attributes to hybrid teas but in a much smaller size. They have smaller flowers, shorter stems, and smaller leaves, but they are available in a wide assortment of bloom colors and are quite hardy. Excellent as container plants.

Antique: These are roses also known as heirlooms. These roses have been in cultivation since the early 1900s or earlier. Blooms may be double or single petal forms. Many are quite fragrant, reliable bloomers in part shade situations, and are considered low maintenance. All have excellent cold hardiness. Shrub and rambling types are available.

Climbing: Roses that possess strong upright growth habit that can easily be trained and attached to a vertical or horizontal structure. Plants may grow 6 to 10 ft., but some can top 15 ft. in height. Climbing rose blooms are medium to large size and most are reliable repeat bloomers. Some grow and bloom in shade, but most perform best with full sun.

Groundcover: As expected these rose plants typically grow twice as wide as they are tall, with most growing only 1 to 3 ft. in height. Many groundcover cultivars are quite cold hardy and offer low maintenance, disease resistance with reliable blooming potential.

Shrub: Shrub roses, like groundcovers show excellent disease resistance, low maintenance but with remarkable blooming capacity. They are considered to be the best "non-rose grower's rose". Because of their attributes, shrub roses have become some of the most popular types. Most are crosses between classic modern roses and old-fashion types. Flower shapes and structures are quite variable, some are fragrant, in a wide array of colors, and plants grow to a modest size of only 2 to 5 ft.
