Pope John Paul II Rose

Img 1424

The Pope John Paul II Rose is considered one of the most fragrant roses of all time. Dark green, glossy foliage provides the perfect setting for its large, luminous, pure white blossoms with classic Hybrid Tea form and a delightful fresh citrus scent. This truly exceptional rose has received top marks for its vigorous growth and abundance of perfectly formed flowers.

Ketchup & Mustard Rose

Plants on Trellises For Instant Privacy

Img 0424

Want to keep the neighbors' prying eyes from watching you? Create a lush and colorful private space with plants on trellises. One or more of these trellised plants can turn a dull and boring space into a relaxing private abode. Plants of trellises are great for balconies, decks, borders, fence areas, decks, and patios. Plant in ground OR in containers. Container planting means you have added height instantly because you aren't digging a hole and placing the plant down into the ground. But, either way, you'll get the privacy you want with plants on trellises. We stock a variety: Duranta, Jasmine, Bougainvillea, Orange Bells, Blue Sky Flower, and others.
