Due to two years of severe nursery losses, our board of directors has changed our focus. Rather than bareroot propagation and sales, we are shifting to education and the care and maintenance of our historic Mother Orchard.
Please consider becoming a member (below) and donating to help continue our work.

Thanks to Peaceful Valley Farm and Garden Supply (originally started by our founder Amigo Bob Cantisano), a collection of some of our favorite species and varieties will be available through them for the 2024/25 Bareroot Season.

Captain John Ingram Rose

In stock
Product Details

Most Likely the Captain John Ingram Rose. Bred by Jean Laffay in 1854 France. Not Readily available. Spreading shrubby moss rose with small dark purple flowers. The flowers are about 2"-3" diameter and have many small petals stacked on each other, sometimes making them 1.5” high in stacked petals. Drought tolerant. susceptible to powered mildew. Moss Roses are a class of roses that have fragrant trichomes of volatile oils that grow all over and around the flower buds that give it a Mossy appearance.

We've found 2 Mother Plants, one in North San Juan and Birchville, both in Dryish conditions. The shrubby mother bushes are about 45" high and 6'-12' wide. We've been loving on this rose for a while now and we are glad to finally put a good name to it.

Please Note: We do not ship potted plants individually. It is too expensive, but we will ship them when ordered with other barefoot trees. By themselves, they are only available for pick up in N. San Juan.
