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”.
Schmidt’s Farm and Greenhouse has been a fixture in West Jordan for over one hundred years. They are also one of the few places in the valley that have Miller’s rose fertilizer, which is made in Utah and my personal go-to.
Below are some of the Utah Rose Society’s favorites available for sale this year.
Cinnamon Dolce is the first of it’s kind. The color is more like a pattern than veining. It has excellent disease resistance, a strong fragrance, and makes a great cut rose.
Secret’s Out is an improved version of the rosarian favorite, Secret. It’s bigger, more fragrant, and has all the benefits of modern disease resistance that its namesake lacks.
Eyeconic Plum Lemonade is the latest in the Eyeconic line from American Rose Society breeder Jim Sproul. It’s a compact rose and a stunner. It also changes color throughout the season in Utah. In summer the center will be deep red with magenta petals. While in fall and spring it will be dark purple and lavender.
Utah Rose Society members get 10% off all roses, fertilizer, and chemicals. Schmidt's Farm and Greenhouse is located at 9120 S Redwood Rd, West Jordan, UT9120 S Redwood Rd, West Jordan, UT. They are open Monday through Saturday 9AM to 5PM.
