English Shrub Roses

The queen of the garden is the fragrant and versatile rose. In addition to our Weeks roses (hybrid tea roses, grandifloras, floribundas, climbers, tree roses), miniature roses, drift roses, and knock-out roses, we grow English shrub roses bred by one of the most prolific and prize-winning breeders David Austin. Each year our roses were ready for planting in late April or early May. David Austin roses tend to sell very quickly, so call us (865-573-9591) for more information about availability of particular varieties.
