In addition to low-maintenance Knockout shrub and Drift groundcover roses, we carry a wonderful selection of Climbing, David Austin, Floribunda, Hybrid Tea, Miniature, Rugosa and tree form varieties. The vast majority of our roses are fragrant and re-blooming. Wayside Garden Center carry the best of new selections each year, which makes us the best place to buy roses in Rochester, NY. We make sure to have old favorites like Zepherine Drouhin, Queen Elizabeth, Mister Lincoln, Gertrude Jekyll, Moje Hammarberg and the tough Pavement rugosas.
We start our rose season with new arrivals by Mother's Day, ready to plant in bud or bloom. We carry at least 40 varieties of David Austin English Roses, old favorites as well as new varieties.
Re-blooming roses offer the longest consistent bloom time we can have in western New York, usually from mid-May to frost. If you think roses are difficult and not worth your while, check out our Knockouts and Drifts or see if our other varieties are tempting enough, with their unmatchable fragrance and form, to warrant your learning how to care for them.
