I recently saw and smelled Orchid Romance rose and was smitten. Regan Nursery, which sells it in bareroot form, is not listed in the Green Pages.

Does anyone have experience, good or bad, ordering from Regan Nursery?

I've been ordering from them for many years, and it's been a positive experience. Shipping is reliable. One can choose an approximate ship date during the checkout process, such as early, mid or late April.

They've always shipped the roses in that time frame, never had a delayed shipment. Roses have been well packed.

I've bought roses from them through mail order and at the nursery and haven't had any bad experiences.

I have had good results from Regan nursery, though you'll find in cold zones that any bare root rose that's held in cold storage long enough for our weather can lose some canes and need significant pruning back when it arrives. In zone 6 Pennsylvania, you won't be able to plant bare root roses again till next spring, so you have plenty of time to add other roses to your wish list and save some shipping!

I ordered own root bare root Young Lycidas from them. It looks amazing compared to the grafted larger Peach Swirl, and Sugar Moon from Edmunds. They are not looking good at all. I think I just don't do well with anything grafted, though all of my bag home depot roses look good compared to Edmunds.

But it won't be bare root at this time of the year.

My limited experience with Edmunds (one rose that is struggling in its second growing season, and that was sent at a time that was convenient for Edmunds but not me) causes me to agree with you, @WitchyWV. No more roses from Edmunds for me!

csandt , I think that's why my Edmunds aren't doing well. It was already hot here by the time they showed up.
