A bare root rose from Palatine

Here's what Palatine sent. This is the smaller of two 'Ascot', grafted on Rosa multiflora rootstock.

The tiles are 12" (30 cm), to give you an idea of the size.

Yep, that's pretty typical. Great plants!!

Great company, great service, great product! Love them.
Look at those roots!

RE: A bare root rose from Palatine

Prepare for two very large roses, hoovb. If you have anything like my experience, your Ascots will grow moderately the first year and explode the second, almost shockingly so. Still, it's kinda fun to watch them. Diane

Happy Birthday Boris and Natasha!

Thanks Diane for the help about the size of the bush. I am going to try to get mine to own root in a 15 gallon can. Fun to get a bareroot after buying bands recently. I loved the old days when the nursery got the Weeks rose shipment in and we sorted them and put them in long rows in the shadehouse.

Hoovb--I just got my Ascot from Palatine too! Along with 8 other roses. They all look to be great plants with parsnip like roots.

Diane--Thanks on the size of Ascot. Helpmefind has it as being 0.0065' to 1" high! I figured it would be a small rose (but not that small!) maybe 2 to 3 feet high. I will be sure to give it plenty of room now.
