Rose's on multiflora rootstock

ken-n.ga.mts(7a/7b)March 19, 2013

I've been watching the rose forms for quite a while and have noticed that folks that grow their rose's on multiflora seem to be stuck on just a couple of nurseries. Most out of Canada. I haven't seen anyone say anything about "Wisconsin Rose's". I don't grow many roses on multiflora but I got a few from Steve a few years ago and they have been great. I might get a few more this year. He has some roses I'd like to try out and see if I like the bush and blooms. Check their web site out. You may find something you like.

I love Steve Singer's roses, but I only recommend Wisconsin Roses for rose growers with a little more experience (and a lot of patience). Although Steve's instructions are clear, I think that a newbie might be a little overwhelmed. Steve sells newly-budded maiden roses, and require a little more work to get them started. But, you're right, if someone wants great hybrid teas (Steve has some minis and floribundas too), and you can grow on R. multiflora rootstock, then check out Wisconsin Roses.

Here is a link that might be useful: Wisconsin Roses

Ken I have ordered from Steve and his roses are WONDERFUL! Plus, I get a kick out of cutting the top off the multiflora plant! :) I mainly grow OGRs, ployanthas, and hybrid musks and Steve generally sells exibition type roses. I would LOVE it if another US seller, or Steve, would offer more varieties with multiflora rootstock. Maybe someone will catch on that theres a need for it since it seems the Canadian sellers are having issues importing.
