4 inches across and jammed with velvety petals!

Great for the south!
Ah, what a romantic devil 'Don Juan' is! Huge, fragrant red blooms dangle from vigorous canes, banked by glossy dark green foliage. Quickly reaching 10 to 12 feet tall and 5 feet wide, this is the climbing rose you want draped over the patio wall, twining up the arbor, or festooning a large trellis. No wonder it's considered the standard red climber, by which all others are judged (and found wanting!).

If you saw these 3- to 4-inch blooms without the plant, you'd probably assume they were exhibition-quality hybrid teas. Packed with 30 to 35 petals and boasting a true red hue that won't fade, they are superb cutflowers. And the sight of a fully-blooming vine is astonishing -- no tiny, short-lived blossoms here!

'Don Juan' blooms in summer, achieving the best color in areas where the nights are warm. If you live in a high-humidity climate, this is the climber you must have! But it's a fine northern performer too, hardy all the way through zone 5.

Plant 'Don Juan' in full sun and well-drained soil. The offspring of New Dawn x 'New Yorker,' it is a dependable and vigorous performer no matter where you live. If planting more than one for solid coverage, space 8 feet apart. Zones 5-10.

Bareroot or Container?

World's Finest Roses

Have you browsed through your favorite gardening catalog or website looking for the newest roses to plant in your garden and wondered whether it would be best to choose bareroot roses or those in nursery pots? Or does it matter? If you’re like most rose gardeners, this question has come up at one point or another. And we want to help you find the answer as to what’s the best for you and your garden.


Bareroot Roses

Bareroot

Bareroot roses are an inexpensive and easy option for early-season planting. In fact, late winter is the best time to plant. Bareroot roses meet the highest industry standards. They arrive dormant, which makes them ideal for planting. The roots get to acclimate to native soil, as opposed to the packaged soil. And of course, since they aren't in soil when you get them, there’s no mess to contend with.


Bareroot roses may look dead, with their brown roots and dormant stem, but plants that arrive this way actually have the advantage of being able to focus their energies on strong root development rather than having to support an extensive growth of leaves during planting, which is very stressful.

You can plant your bareroot roses earlier in the growing season as well, since there aren't any leaves to get nipped back by frost. They can typically be planted as early as six weeks before your area’s last frost date in the spring. Since they don’t have to provide water to leaves or flowers, they usually establish quickly.


Container

Container roses should typically be planted in late spring and fall. They’re easy to plant (all you need is a trowel), and they provide instant gratification, as they aren't dormant and will have buds within a few short weeks, if they don’t when they arrive. They’re also perfect for transplanting into decorative containers and make an attractive gift.


Container roses are usually nicely leafed out, and may even have flowers on them, which is a great way for you to know when you purchase them what they’re going to look and smell like. As you can see, there are advantages to both bareroot or container roses, so whichever you decide is the best for your garden, we feel certain you’ll become a lifelong rose lover, if you aren't already!

the McCoys from CA wrote (April 01, 2014):
Our two little Don Juan roses arrived after a long trip across the continent looking rather sad, but they were still moist. After trimming off the dead leaves and planting them, we worried that they wouldn't make it, but we were rewarded with healthy new growth on multiple little stems in about 10 days. It is amazing to me that these little plants are so hardy and ready to grow. We can see that they are indeed on their way to being the large climber we want.
Beautiful roses

My aunt bought some roses from this company and they were beautiful! I came home and ordered 6 and can't wait to receive them.
