Own Root - Roses that are grown on their own root systems.
Budded - Roses are grafted onto a hardy rose rootstock.
Bareroot - Roses are supplied dormant without foliage or flowers and without soil or pot. To facilitate this the rose must be in its winter dormancy when the plant is effectively asleep. For Amore Roses® this is early June till late July.
