Where are you located? Your handle indicates you might live somewhere warm.

If you are in Florida, or anywhere else that has nematodes in the soil, you need to buy roses grafted onto a special root stock - Fortuniana. Not all online retailers of roses will have those.

Just west of Amarillo Texas,small town called Bushland,zone 7A,as I drive around town I see a lot of roses bushes,they don't even start selling them here in the nurseries until April 28th.I really don't want to wait that long,because at that time full veggie garden will be in full swing.

You don't need to worry about grafted roses there. Be careful if you plant early, though. You might have to protect your new roses if you get a late frost. (a cardboard box will work fine, a rock on top will keep it from blowing away). That's the reason your local nurseries don't start selling them earlier. If your new roses start sending out tender new leaves and they get zapped by frost, it could kill the plant.

I like buying roses for my daughter who lives in Utah from Regan Nurseries - they're in California.

But there are many more rose growers over on the Roses forum that will also have their favorites - more choices for you.

My favorite online order place is High Country Roses:

I buy only own-root roses; my experience has been that the tops freeze off the grafted ones in our high desert climate.
