Cape Diamond is a new rose with lots of great qualities that makes it fun and easy to have in your garden. It has lovely pink blossoms with a spicy-sweet fragrance. The foliage stays green -- no spots, no mildew, no rust, no spraying. It does what we want it to do; bloom all summer without trouble. Cape Diamond is a strong grower with longer canes that makes a larger, spreading shrub. Or it can be grown as a low climber. On top of that, it has really good winter hardiness with minimal cane dieback in Zone 4. You'll want one of these in your garden!

What's a "bareroot" plant?
is a term that describes how a plant is shipped to you. A
bareroot plant is not in a pot, and is usually dormant (not
actively growing). See the photo to the right that shows what
a bareroot rose looks like. The bareroot plants that we ship
to you were harvested in the fall and placed in cold storage
over the winter to keep them dormant. In the spring, we ship
the bareroot plants to our customers, from early April through
Bareroot plants are easy to grow. We include planting instructions
with your order. When you receive your plant, take it out
of the packing material and place it in a bucket of water
so that the roots are completely covered. Let the roots soak
for 4 to 24 hours, then plant it in your garden. Full planting
instructions with photos are available on our Planting
