This rose is no longer available to ship bare-root. The plants have broke dormancy here in Spokane and are no longer available for shipping. You may still order this rose if you are planning on picking up your order at the Rosarium.
Gertrude Jekyll is available bare-root and can be shipped in Feb and March. After the end of March it will be available in a 3 gallon pot and can be picked up at the nursery. We are unable to ship the 3 gallon pot.  It will be available for pickup at the nursery after we open April 12, 2017. You may place an order and we will reserve the rose for you.    

This rose can be grown as a large shrub or a climber. We grow it both ways here at the nursery. The process of tying a rose to a structure seems to encourage the canes to grow taller and more upright. The blooms are full and large and color is a rich deep pink. The blooms are strongly fragrant and produced all summer on a tall, vigorous, healthy plant. This is a beautiful rose in any garden. It caught our eye when we visited the David Austin garden and saw it growing as a climber on the front of their sales cottage.
