BARE ROOT ROSES BEGIN SHIPPING FEBRUARY 6, 2023

Distant Drums, she is a dream! One of the first roses to bloom of the season and has continual flushes all summer. With buds a deep pink, Distant Drums blooms with soft mauve outer petals and creamy colored inner petals with the loveliest myrrh scent. Distant drums grows in a shrub form in zones 5b-9. She's divine!

These roses are shipped as #1 grade bare root. These are not shipped in a pot with soil. Roses will arrive with canes pruned and bare roots ready to be planted right away.

Bred by Dr. Griffith J. Buck

How to plan for your bare root rose arrival...

We typically plant our bare roots with the grafted node or bud union just below the surface of the soil, about two inches. There are different views on planting bare roots roses, but this way works best for us so that the graft is protected underground from harsh winters, winds and I've read that the grafted rose could potentially grow it's own roots if they are just below ground level.

To plant a bare root rose first decide on placement in your garden by finding a location that gets at least 4-6 hours a day of sunlight. Afternoon shade might be good in hot climates. Make sure the spot you pick isn't too close to a tree or other large shrub that would be competing.

When you receive your rose you'll want to unpack it and let the roots sit in a bucket of water for a couple hours. While they are drinking up dig a hole twice as big as the roots (about a foot and a half round and loosen up the soil at the bottom so the roots can easily penetrate as they grow.  Create a mound of soil at the bottom to support the roots and add compost manure if you have any. Back fill the hole with soil and firm down with your boot or back of the shovel. Water in and add more soil if needed. 


Shipping Methods

Orders will be shipped via FedEx Home Delivery.

Orders are generally in route for 2-5 business days (depending on where you live).

We are sticklers about packaging and shipping your order in a way that guarantees healthy plants upon arrival. If plants are damaged on arrival, just let us know and we'll send you new ones or offer a full refund.

All of our plants are container grown and shipped with the soil and roots fully intact. We DO NOT ship your plants bare-root. Being shipped as a containered plant greatly reduces the risk of the plant not surviving the transit to your home.

So impressed!

The bare root was an amazing size, so healthy, and packaged soooo perfectly. I have purchased from big names as well, like David Austin roses, and the quality and care didn’t come close to what I received from you guys. I ordered two more rose bushes based on what I received and will only order from you moving forward. High five!
