Our Lady of Guadalupe™ Floribunda Rose

Rosa hybrid 'JACveryp'


2-Quart
Item # 32998
Cultivar name: 'JACveryp.' Syn: Shining Hope™

Ideal for novice rose growers and seasoned rosarians alike, this floribunda is one of the hardest-working, most productive and attractive cultivars we have ever seen. Everything about it is just a little better: its bloom strength, its disease resistance, its fragrance, and even its color. A good choice for a large planting as a low hedge or a ribbon of color in the sunny border, Our Lady of Guadalupe™ is highly recommended.

The blooms appear in great clusters, pink tinged with silver to highlight the many layers of whorled petals. Each 3-inch flower sports about 20 to 25 petals, and they open from pointed buds into high-centered blooms boasting the classic hybrid tea form. Cut all you like; Our Lady of Guadalupe™ will have many, many more where those came from!

The first and heaviest bloom is in early season, but this shrub repeats vigorously all season, so it's difficult to catch it out of bloom. Few roses can keep producing during the hottest, most humid spells, but this is a very heat-tolerant cultivar, and its vigor is tremendous. You will be surprised by the flower power of this compact little shrub!

Highly fragrant, these blooms have a sweet old-rose aroma that will remind you of grandmother's garden and deliciously perfume the garden or home. The combination of the soft pink tones and the tea scent is quite old-fashioned, but there is nothing old-fashioned about the vigor and determination to rebloom of this shrub!

Our Lady of Guadalupe™ reaches 2 to 3 feet high and wide, a good size for a low hedge, a mass planting, or an accent in the sunny border. It is compact enough for containers, too, so you can grow it north of its hardiness range with winter protection. Highly disease- and pest-resistant, it stands up to powdery mildew and rust beautifully, and its thorny canes keep nibbling pests at bay. Consider adding this high performing, beautiful cultivar to your landscape this season! Zones 6-10.

Bareroot or Container?

World's Finest Roses

Have you browsed through your favorite gardening catalog or website looking for the newest roses to plant in your garden and wondered whether it would be best to choose bareroot roses or those in nursery pots? Or does it matter? If you’re like most rose gardeners, this question has come up at one point or another. And we want to help you find the answer as to what’s the best for you and your garden.


Bareroot Roses

Bareroot

Bareroot roses are an inexpensive and easy option for early-season planting. In fact, late winter is the best time to plant. Bareroot roses meet the highest industry standards. They arrive dormant, which makes them ideal for planting. The roots get to acclimate to native soil, as opposed to the packaged soil. And of course, since they aren't in soil when you get them, there’s no mess to contend with.


Bareroot roses may look dead, with their brown roots and dormant stem, but plants that arrive this way actually have the advantage of being able to focus their energies on strong root development rather than having to support an extensive growth of leaves during planting, which is very stressful.

You can plant your bareroot roses earlier in the growing season as well, since there aren't any leaves to get nipped back by frost. They can typically be planted as early as six weeks before your area’s last frost date in the spring. Since they don’t have to provide water to leaves or flowers, they usually establish quickly.


Container

Container roses should typically be planted in late spring and fall. They’re easy to plant (all you need is a trowel), and they provide instant gratification, as they aren't dormant and will have buds within a few short weeks, if they don’t when they arrive. They’re also perfect for transplanting into decorative containers and make an attractive gift.


Container roses are usually nicely leafed out, and may even have flowers on them, which is a great way for you to know when you purchase them what they’re going to look and smell like. As you can see, there are advantages to both bareroot or container roses, so whichever you decide is the best for your garden, we feel certain you’ll become a lifelong rose lover, if you aren't already!
