Antique Rose Emporium

A great source for antique and own-root roses


Our Roses Are Different

For the past 35 years our goal has been to give credibility to these plants, and happily we find ourselves part of a recent upsurge of interest in antique roses. From experience, comments, and feedback from our many repeat customers, we reiterate, there is no way one can begin to appreciate the versatility of these roses until after a few seasons of working with them. Nothing we say here will substitute for the benefits of hands-on experience. But we hope to answer enough questions and generate enough enthusiasm to launch you into the world of old roses with confidence. Be aware, however, that these are captivating plants, and once taken with them you're likely to never be the same.
