The Vintage Rosery
Unless otherwise noted, all photographs were taken of the roses in our gardens located in Needville, Texas (zone 8b.)
"After years of extensive field research, during which no pesticides of any kind were applied, only a few very special roses have received the prestigious EarthKind* designation from horticultural experts at Texas A&M University. These beautiful roses are proven to deliver outstanding landscape performance under widely varying soil conditions, with minimal care, and provide maximum protection for the environment. While certainly not immune to pest problems, their tolerance to pests is so great that, as long as you do not mind a few leaflets dropping occasionally, almost never will you need to apply any harsh pesticides to these roses! I think that you will be very impressed with the tremendous performance of these easy-care roses - we certainly are."

The Vintage Rosery grows antique roses certified as EarthKind as they are excellent for our hot, humid coastal climate. These are the varieties we grow and normally have available. Come to our gardens and see them full grown and blooming. That is the best way to select a rose of your own.
