I have now ordered over 250 roses from Palatine. I have never had anything but great big healthy plants. Of these only 1 was mislabeled, and was promptly replaced. This past year (2021-2) the plants had the biggest roots I have ever seen on a rose - massive, and growing far better than poor potted plants with the roots chopped off to fit in a pot.
Their selection keeps improving, adding very interesting and uncommon varieties, and well as the best modern plants. Absolutely the first place to look.

Could not agree more about Palatine Roses!

For some reason I have had trouble getting the newly planted multiflora budded Palatine roses to get growing in the Spring. Not sure why this is as the Palatine plants - roots and stems - are simply EXQUISITE! Could be weather related - for the past two years in April/May we have had frosts followed by high 80s or even low 90s temps within a few days of each other. Own root and Dr. Huey budded don't seem to have as much difficulty as the multiflora budded plants. By summer's end the multiflora bushes are growing vigorously.

The Palatine roses are so good I will continue to use them as my #1 supplier of bare root roses.

Palatine Roses has the BEST quality bare-root roses I have ever seen and grown. Healthy, full root system, and strong multiple cane growth. No other company can come close in quality. No plant shock from chopped roots and tops. I don't have to wait for years for a beautiful big productive plant. The rootstock does extremely well in Coastal Georgia's heat and soil. Also note, Palatine sells roses that have proved themselves healthy and vigorous greenhouse roses that fail in the garden. I paid a few dollars more for big healthy bare-root plants than some bands I've bought elsewhere. Roses take time and money, so I want quality plants. I thought the shipping was VERY reasonable. My girlfriend and I combine our orders--10 roses at $30 S&H= $3 each shipping--not bad. It all comes out a few extra dollars/rose in the end. The hard part for us is getting our order slimmed down to a reasonable size---not what we want, but what we have to have! Highly recommended!

I think that Palatine sells the best quality bareroot roses in North America. The root systems are huge and the canes are plump and green and disease free. Their selection is mostly of Kordes roses but they are expanding their selection of roses all the time. Their prices are reasonable for the plants but the shipping tends to be expensive when shipping from Canada to the United States. However, if you want the best quality and are willing to pay for it, Palatine cannot be beat by any other nursery.
