I ordered Colonial White and Le Vesuve. They arrived on time and in great shape, one with a full bloom, and the other with buds, I am sure I should remove them but just do not have the heart to do it today. They are about 10" tall with lots of leaves, very clean.
I was in Al and MS with the Red Cross 3 weeks after Katrina hit and I am amazed that they are back up and running so soon, but glad that they are. I love my new roses - they are perfect.

Recently ordered 4 roses from this company. I liked the website and that they specialize in roses for the south. I emailed a couple of questions prior to ordering and Lisa was so nice, she sent me detailed answers and you can really tell she cares about her roses and her customers. The roses were well packed, healthy and have leafed out beautifully since I planted them. She even sent me an email of when to expect them and the shipping was fast.

Prior to ordering my roses, I had a wonderful informative conversation by phone with the proprietress, Lisa. She was chatty and generous with her time, and I ended up learning a lot--it was a real pleasure to deal with a person who is not in a hurry and can share their expertise!
My order arrived well packed and moist--the roses were healthy, well rooted, and generously branched out--I know from experience they will take off like crazy as soon as they are planted and settle in.
Countryside's selection is OUTSTANDING, and the value is EXCELLENT. I know I will always check with them when I am in the market for another rose!
I have only purchased one rose from CS but it was good size and grew like a weed after I planted it. I also like their reasoanble prices/shipping and willingness to ship just one rose. Most vendors have a minimum requirement of at least 3 to 5 roses.

I have obtained a number of roses from Countryside over the past couple of years, and I have always been pleased with the roses that I have been sent...This last order, was no exception, they were all gorgeous, healthy-looking plants, some of them even had a bud on them! They give wonderful service and are very knowlegable about roses in general, and they are able to recommend specific roses for specific places...I like being able to ask, and getting an answer that works!
Great place to select roses and get personal service. Their website is loaded with some of the most delicious roses you ever saw. The owner takes a personal interest in her clients and makes sure each customer is satisfied, and if there is a problem takes care of it immediately. Great vendor. Healthy plants that grow by leaps and bounds (and beautiful, too). This vendor has some very nice and unusual roses as well. She will help with your selections for your area as well and is very knowledgable.
A great place to buy old roses for southern gardens. The plants are own root, inexpensive and very healthy. Do not expect the size of a large 2 gallon grafted plant, but expect a nicely rooted small rose that will grow leaps and bounds. The owner is very helpful and will help you pick out exactly what you need.
