Adding a rose variety to your garden is an exciting process for gardeners. While so many of the new and returning varieties have exquisite blooms and are easy to grow, choosing unique rose characteristics, such as specific growth habits or bloom times that compliment your existing varieties requires some planning. Christianson’s Rose List 2020 is formatted to help you identify the perfect variety by the group (Modern, English, Climbing, Rugosa, Groundcover, Miniature/Mini, and Tree Roses), then variety name, and type (A) = Alba, etc., followed by color and other characteristics. During the winter, our roses are displayed in Greenhouse #5 and laid out according to our Rose List 2020, making each rose category easier to locate.

This Spring, throughout our rose classes and Rose Festival, we will pay tribute to the English breeder, David Austin, whose contributions in breeding venerated English rose varieties have spurred a renewed enthusiasm for rose gardening. We hope you enjoy seeking out your interests in the Christianson’s Rose List 2020 insert and discover the many varieties of David Austin roses as well as more than 90 new or returning varieties totaling our beautiful collection to over 550 varieties of roses!
