The Nursery features roses from many collections including roses from David Austin, Buck, Harkness, Delbard, Weeks and more. Specializing in roses for Southern gardens, most classes are represented including Teas, Chinas, Noisettes, Hybrid Musks, Bourbons, Polyanthas, climbers and minis and rare modern Floribundas and Hybrid Teas all on their own roots.

A lucky winner will take home one of these extraordinary roses! For your comfort, you are welcome to bring a chair.
