In honor of Valentine’s Day, we celebrate the iconic rose – the unparalleled beauty that adds romance, drama, and elegance to the garden with its luscious petals, lovely color, and captivating fragrance.

Roses have long marked occasions of love, admiration, and even secrecy, from the archaic period, when 4th century Greeks and Romans wore rose garlands in wedding ceremonies, to the Victorian era, when cultivation increased and roses were exchanged as a floral love language. Today, we exchange over 200 million roses on Valentine’s Day alone. 

Valentine’s Day inspires this curated list of garden roses, and each relates to our theme, often in name. But they made the list because they’re brimming with other attributes, including plant vigor, disease resistance, exceptional blooms, fragrance, and extended bloom time. We love easy care and no needed spraying, too.

You may be looking for the perfect complement to your garden or a gift for your Valentine. We’re enamored with these dreamy, top-performing roses from sweet blush pink to sunshine yellow to moody violet.

To a Friend who sent me some Roses…But when, O Wells! thy roses came to me,
My sense with their deliciousness was spelled:
Soft voices had they, that with tender plea
Whispered of peace, and truth, and friendliness unquelled.
