Support our efforts to preserve a world of old roses!
Welcome to our rose sales page. We propagate a few thousand rose plants each year in order to provide plants to our curators who share the work of preserving our historic rose collection. Extra plants from that process are made available to the public in our sales throughout the year.
Our spring sale will occur in April. All sales are virtual. We post a list here on this page that you may order from. The first few days after our release of a new crop our Guardians of the Rose, monthly donors of $10 or more, are given a few days to place orders before we take orders from the general public. We encourage you to join—we rely on donations to maintain the collection and to propagate for the curators.
Our current list is always posted on the link to the right, and we accept orders throughout the year. For the most up to date list, please email the curator. To place an order, be sure to read our sale terms & instructions pdf posted to the right.
Please note; we produce a ‘Rose Sale Descriptive’ only once each season; sold out roses will appear on that list, but not on the ‘Rose Sale List’

On our webpage “The Collection,” you will find the pages of the old Vintage Gardens Book of Roses which The Friends inherited with the roses. Each class of roses is presented as a separate page with links to the pages on explanatory information and with the descriptions of the historical classes and growth habit illustrations. It’s an easy, up-to-date way to access the wealth of information gathered by the authors when looking for their personal take on the 3400 plus varieties included. It provides a way to quickly scan a rose group for comparative information. We hope you’ll find it helpful!
For more information and for images of most of these roses, we encourage you to go to Help Me Find Roses on the internet. This indispensable free resource is depended upon worldwide by rose lovers both to seek more information and to learn more about others’ experiences with the varieties. While you are there we urge you to join HMF as a supporting member—if you love roses, consider it a duty!
