Dream Roses Logo

In spring 2000, a new collection of Dream roses will be available to gardeners. This is an entirely new collection of roses that feature the large, luscious Hybrid Tea and Floribunda-type flowers and glossy green leaves so prized by rose lovers. The Dream rose collection is a startling departure from most roses introduced over the past decade. Bold and colourful, with quick-repeat flowers that bloom from spring to fall, these superstar performers were bred for the garden to flourish under real garden conditions.
All Dream roses are recognizable by their compact bush loaded with flowers, with the next wave of bloom already in bud, waiting to burst forth.
"Best All Around" Garden Roses
Dream roses are ‘best-all around garden roses: combining a compact bush with luscious Hybrid Tea-type flowers, a long bloom season, no nonsense pruning needs, plus a natural strength that lends itself to less spraying compared with other roses.
