Starting this year membership in the Utah Rose Society comes with great perks. One of them is discounts at local, independent nurseries. We affectionately refer to these nurseries as our “Rose Buds”.
Progressive Plants is a leader in sustainable gardening in Utah. One of the benefits of buying from them is their plants are grown at their nursery. This means there is less shock when planted.
Below are some of the Utah Rose Society’s favorites available for sale this year.
Reminiscent Coral I will be making the trip out to Progressive Plants when this becomes available because OMG it is a winner. Reminiscent is a line of roses from Proven Winners, designed to look like an English rose but without the hassle. It is incredibly disease resistant and has a strong fragrance.
Rise Up Lilac Days is a new rose from English hybridizer Chris Warner. His roses have been winning awards around the world for years and thanks to Proven Winners they are finally available in the US. This rose has a beautiful light purple color and grows to eight feet. It is also compact in its habit which is perfect for small gardens that need a tall rose.
Progressive Plants has an online catalog that is updated real time. You can either order online and pick up later or you can visit their nursery at 10252 South Bacchus Hwy Copperton, UT 84006. They are open Monday through Friday 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM.
