I ordered 6 roses recently. All arrived very well packed and healthy. I was amazed at how large they were. 2 of the roses already had buds and it has been one month now and all have doubled in size in the garden. I will surely order from them again. A+ company.

I ordered 'Westerland' this past year, and when the package arrived on April 18 I was delighted to see an extremely healthy plant already budding! The rose established well in its first year with vigorous growth--I will definitely order from Roses Unlimited again in the future.

Although I think it's unwise to order roses (or ANY plants) in the thick of summer heat, I succumbed to RU's recent buy-two-get-one-free offer. (What could I do? Two roses on my wish list were on their select list!!!)

I ordered 4 roses from Roses Unlimited last year. New to roses, I asked a lot of questions through e-mail and received very helpful responses from Pat. It was thrilling to open the box and find 2 of the roses in bloom. Better yet, they've made it through the zone 5 winter, look very healthy and are putting on lovely display this year.

I've ordered from Roses Unlimited before, but forgot just how beautiful their roses arrive after shipping from SC to NY. 3 out of the 5 had blooms on the bushes and 1 had buds. they were all large and very healthy. Excellent roses and I've very pleased.

This is my first order with Roses Unlimited. Based on excellent feedback from others, I ordered 18 roses. They arrived when expected, healthy, huge plants, even better than I expected. Shortly before they shipped, I changed my mind on one of the varieties. They confirmed my substitution by e-mail, and the substituted rose was just as nice as the rest. I will definitely order again and recommend them to others.

I just got my rose order in today. I got 4. They were huge! Charles de Mills canes were 27" long and healthy. The others were 22" and 18" and two of the plants had buds. One Charisma had a perfect bloom and 4 more buds on their way. Very impressed with my order!

At the end of last season (summer 2006) I wanted to buy a particular color climbing rose. The one on their site I liked was out of stock but I was told that it would be available next year and I could be put on a waiting list to be notified when it was available. I was notified at the end of December and sent in my check. I just received the rose bush yesterday. It had 1 bloom on it and was a good size in excellent condition. The folliage on it was stunning.

I recently order 4 more roses and they arrived very large, healthy and two in bloom. Great company.

I just received one Frederic Mistral rose, in Los Angeles (far from South Carolina). It is very large, beautiful and has TWO buds already. Hard to believe it is an own root rose!

I ordered several own-root hybrid tea roses from Roses Unlimited, corresponding directly with Pat. She was a pleasure to deal with as she was informed, pleasant mannered, and honest about her plants. I ordered with confidence and it was repaid tenfold when I received my order. The roses were huge for bareroots and were in superb condition as they had been grown well and packaged correctly. When they ran a sale later in the year I ordered two more roses--New Years orange hybrid teas--and again I received top notch service and quality plants. I recommend Roses Unlimited to anyone interested in own-root roses. You will definitely get your money's worth and have an enjoyable experience.

My husband and I purchased our very first own root roses last summer from Roses Unlimited. I was a little nervous, reading that own-root roses tended to be small and might not make it through our rough zone 5a winters. I barraged Pat Henry (owner) with several emails and phone calls about different varieties and asked a lot of advice. She answered each email promptly and in great detail.

I also took advantage of the sale they were having and had a less then perfect experience.

Follow up e-mail was all I wanted. An apology or an offer to make things right. I was pleased by the follow up and am content with my order. Granted it is the wrong color but it is a beautiful healthy rose bush that is thriving as I speak/type and others on here are right when they say they are huge roses for mail order. And the service was good overall.

As far as I know Roses Unlimited stock is own-root. The website is listed as RosesUnlimitedOwnRoot.com.

The roses arrived today and I can honestly say I have never received such large potted roses through mail-order before.
In my order is a new rose called "Lovely Child" Unlimited Roses' sport of Tamora.
They look fabulous and healthy!

I intended to order six roses from RU during their June sale. They had all six plants I wanted. So far so good. I was ready to send in my check. In the last email exchange I expressed my hope that the plants I wanted to purchase were not infected with Rose Mosaic Virus since I was aware of the fact that RU had become infamous of sending out virused plants. As matter of fact I did see virused plants in their greenhouses when I visited them; I left there two roses I originally wanted to buy as soon as I noticed RMV on them but took the risk with 4 others that showed no sign of RMV.

My favorite rose vendor. They send large, healthy own-root plants that are well packed. I've ordered about 150 roses from 18 different vendors over the past 6 years and have experienced complete satisfaction with only 3 companies. Roses Unlimited gets my top marks out of the three due to their large plants that can go directly into the ground and the wide variety offered.

I have so far ordered twice from this company this spring- and I have ordered from several other own root vendors in the recent past.

I have just received my order from Roses Unlimited and I could not be HAPPIER! This was my first time ordering from them, but it is only the beginning....I will definitely order from them again & again! I was delighted with the speed in which the plants got here....by using priority mail they were here in 2 days, so the roses were fresh and green. So many places ship UPS or FedEx, which take a week to get here. I was also impressed with the superb packaging....the roses never knew they went anywhere! Not one broken cane, missing leaf, or spilled soil, and the roses were not pruned back like some places, so one of the roses had a BUD on it already! And not one leaf had yellowing or blackspot....they look so healthy I am sure they will take off right away. I highly recommend this company, and Pat is wonderful to deal with. They are a 10!

I am able to make a relatively short drive up to Roses Unlimited to purchase my roses directly. They have wonderful stock and everything I have purchased from them has THRIVED! Pat has emailed me back on many occasions to answer my questions patiently and with great expertise. I highly recommend Roses Unlimited!

I ordered 6 roses from Roses Unlimited. They were shipped immediately and arrived in excellent condition. I prefer to grow only own-root roses, and they have an extensive collection. The shipping is reasonably priced, especially given the quality packaging and the size of the roses (they're huge, not dinky little 4" pots). The roses shipped in the middle of July with no problems! I'm very pleased with this company and plan to order more roses in the future.

When I received my order, I was truly impressed with the packaging. IT COULDN'T HAVE BEEN BETTER! The plants looked great, and were very moist. I planted them on March 28, following their instructions, and all seven plants have bloomed three times with flowers so big the stems could barely support them. IF YOU WANT STRONG, HEALTHY, BEAUTIFUL ROSES, YOU'LL FIND THEM AT ROSES UNLIMITED!!!

I received 17 roses from RU on time, big and healthy, some in bloom or bud, ready to take off in my garden and all have thrived. Will definitely order from them again.

Top notch experience in every way. My package arrived exactly as expected, and I was met with a whoosh of scent as I cracked open the box--four of the six roses had absolutely sumptuous scented blooms. All are doing wonderfully--my Red Fountain climbers are shooting out new canes and building up their foliage, with superb sprays of deep red blooms... Will definitely order again...

Superb, outstanding, flawless -- Roses Unlimited is the best place I have ever dealt with for roses. Received a shipment a few days ago, and the roses were healthy, still moist, and one (Buff Beauty) was in bud and flower. The selection is mind-boggling, and I just love calling in my order because the folks there are so friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. I will definitely continue to purchase from Roses Unlimited, and I tell every other rose lover about them.

I have ordered from other rose companies and was disappointed in the packing and condition of plants. RU is one of the best I have encountered. Before ordering from RU, I had consulted Garden Web members and this forum.

Superlatives are in order for the 5 roses I received this week. Lush, healthy plants that are larger than average for mail-order. Very sturdy packaging & good care/planting instructions. RU readily accommodated changes I made to my order. Hassle-free transaction.

I recently received a shipment of roses from RU, my first from them in several years. I'm happy to report that their high standards have been maintained. The plants shipped this season were all healthy, very well rooted, and packed with great care. In addition to the quality of their product, I greatly appreciate RU's rapid response to e-mail inquiries and their overall emphasis on customer service.
PS: I happen to like the website AND the music at the website! :)

i recieved approximately 70 buck roses from roses unlimited last spring and could not believe how big and healthy looking they were. they almost all bloomed profusely last summer and fall and as winter is nearing its end they appear to all have survived iowa's winter and look very good. the people at roses unlimited were also very helpfull last summer answering questions about fertilizing and spraying my roses. when you operate a buisness as they do i can see why they dont have any negative comments. i have bought roses from other sources and none compare with theirs. thanks roses unlimited jerry mchenry

Dealing with this company both over the phone and in person was a pleasure. The people I talked to were knowledgeable and friendly. I asked them to set a couple of roses aside for me so I could pick them up in person. They chose big healthy roses--one had a bloom. I would not hesitate to buy from them again. It's also a great place to visit.

I have purchased own-root roses from several well know U.S. vendors and have found over all Roses Unlimited roses to be the best. Their roses are big and healthy compared to the typical sickly "twigs" you get from most vendors. Plus their packaging is superb bar none!

This week I received my order of 13 1-gallon roses from Roses Unlimited. These roses are IMPOSSIBLY HUGE and HEALTHY! And the foliage is WOW. Just so clean and solid green. It’s funny that I get so excited about rose foliage, but that’s what happens when you try to grow roses on Long Island ;)

I just received another 10 roses from Roses Unlimited. All Griffith Buck roses, which are the best thing in rosedom today. The roses arrived faster than I could put the check in the mail. The foliage was luscious green and absolutely spotless, and they didn't even look stressed from shipping... and it's almost July! Next time I travel cross-country, I want Roses Unlimited to ship me!
There are only a handful of rose nurseries that will ship potted roses throughout the growing season, and Roses Unlimited is the one that I would highly recommend if you need your rose fix now or anytime. Their roses are sturdy and robust, and WILL make it. I ordered roses from them last year during summer as well, and those roses have been positively thriving.
Pat Henry said that they try to offer the best plants -- ones that they would be pleased with if they had purchased for themselves. I think Empress Josephine would have been happy with these plants!
