Roses have secrets
Picking a rose bush for a landscape starts with two words. Own root. ‘Own root’ means the rose was grown from a single cutting and is not grafted. If the winter kills the shrub to the ground, it will usually regrow from the root and regrow the same rose. Sherbondy’s rose suppliers include Bailey Nursery and Weeks Roses. We purchase bare root roses in February, pot them up at our Underwood greenhouses and bring them back to Council Bluffs in bud and bloom for retail sales. My favorite red is Home Run and favorite pink is Nearly Wild. I have Nearly Wild growing at the Korkow Ranch for Wounded Warriors. It has survived for 6 years with no winter help. Any of the Easy Elegance Rose varieties are excellent for our area. We get lots of compliments on them.
Sherbondy’s Garden Center offers Hybrid Teas, Shrub Roses, Floribunda, Grandiflora, and Climbers.
Rose care starts with a good rose food.
