Roses by mail

Mail-order sources for rose plants
Lauren Bonar Swezey

If you can't find a certain rose at your local nursery, check the mail-order sources below. In mild climates, some vigorous shrub roses grow as climbers. The shrub rose list includes floribundas; use these types in borders and informal hedges. Plant climbers against fences or trellises, ground cover roses on slopes as edgings. (The latter stay below 2 1/2 ft. tall, except where noted.)
