Roses are our passion.
We carry over 550 varieties of new and returning roses with diversified groups of top rated roses for our climate. The groups include hybrid teas, grandifloras, floribundas, climbing, groundcover, David Austin English Roses, rugosa, and old garden roses.
Our Christianson’s Rose List 2020 with its legend is a quick reference for customers wanting a particular color, or group such as the new violet color and fragrant roses.
In June our annual Rose Festival showcases the display garden around our Schoolhouse and under the Big Tent offers presentations on rose varieties and rose care and companion plants. The Schoolhouse is filled with cut roses from the Tri-Valley Rose Society and community gardener’s submissions for the Best in Show, Best Fragrant Rose and Best Floral Display. It is here you can see and smell many of the most popular roses first hand. This offers a rare opportunity for those who are considering planting a rose garden. There is nothing better than seeing the real flower rather than viewing it in a picture.
New Roses in 2020
‘M. S. Hershey’, a rich, red Hybrid-Tea rose was introduced at the Hershey Rose Garden in 1941, now called Hershey Gardens. This excellent bloomer quickly repeats its blooms throughout the season.
‘Delaney Sisters’, whose namesake after Sarah Louise “Sadie” Delany, an American educator and civil rights pioneer who was the subject, along with her younger sister, Elizabeth “Bessie” Delany, of the New York Times bestselling oral history biography, Having Our Say: The Delany Sisters’ First 100 Years, by journalist Amy Hill Hearth. Its double ivory-peach flowers with bright cherry-red washing on the edges, light peachy- reverse. Blooms borne both singly and in large clusters. Large, dark, semi-glossy foliage.
‘Oscar Peterson’, namesaked after the late Canadian jazz musician who is often played on NPR and is most likely streamed on your music platform. The large semi-double flowers are cream-colored in bud, opening to a pure white with a center of yellow stamens. A very good repeat bloomer and exceptionally disease resistant. Think “Sally Holmes’.
