We have just celebrated the longest day of the of the year, first day of summer and, as time passes quickly, it is almost time to think about the new roses!
A few tantalizing hints;
Of course a fine selection of new introductions, some already previewed on this site.
New categories, 'English Inspiration Roses'.
And the very strong possibility that we will have a new category of small potted roses shipping in the fall for our friends who prefer to plant then. (Limited selection to be announced)
We will begin taking orders for 2019 this July through the end of January, 2019. Shipping of the orders placed beginning in July 2018 will begin in late Jan. 2019.
Attention local customers; We no longer have the bare root beds of roses to shop from. Labor and material costs have made it difficult to do. Please place your order online and we will pull the roses for you and call you when they are ready for pick up.

2017 presented us with the largest number of new roses ever. Just when you think there can't be that many more, we get lucky!!
Certified Roses has introduced, from the Orard hybridizers, Shirley's Bouquet'™' in honor of Shirley Staples. A long time employee starting as part of staff and retiring as the President of Certified Roses several decades later. Personally speaking, I met Shirley on many occasions. She is as charming as her rose is beautiful. Congratulations Shirley!
For 2018, Kordes Roses has released, through Certified Roses, a number of beautiful varieties new to the US.
Many have been in Europe for some time and won many awards. Now we get to share in the beauty and joy of these lovely varieties!
The Arborose Collection - Newest addition; Climbing Quick Silver™ Midsize climbers that are disease resistant and easy to grow. Blooming on new and old wood, they are very floriferous. Designed to grow on 5-7 ft. fences, walls and arbors.
My Bouquet Roses Collection - Compact growers great for the patio, in containers, or the garden. Described as Mini-flora roses, they grow 2-3 ft. (probably taller in California gardens) The blooms have a longer vase life than traditional varieties. They can be grown as hedges, in containers, or stand alone plants.
The Parfuma Collection of Roses -These varieties are chosen for their exceptional fragrance, romantic (old fashioned) blooms, and disease-resistance. They are great as cut roses bringing their fragrance into the house.
Kolorscape Collection of Roses - Shrub type roses created to use as hedges, in borders and public spaces. Disease resistant, self cleaning, and compact. In the Nursery, these roses have been very impressive. Freely flowering and attractive.

Please check out all of the new introductions for 2018 here.
All American Rose (AARS) is a designation that was given by All America Rose Selections to roses evaluated for a certain period of time by test gardens throughout the United States.
The last rose given this designation was Francis Meilland, a truly beautiful Hybrid Tea.
Some roses are also evaluated by the ADR working group in Germany, the toughest rose selection trial in the world. A winning rose embodies all of the characteristics consumers desire in a garden plant including disease resistance and fragrance.
