Who we are
We, of the Russian River Rose Company,
greet you and hope to share our love of roses -- with all of you around the
world. Our family run nursery got its start in 1990 when our chief collector,
took a cutting
of an old rose that had escaped civilization and now covers the
coastal headlands surrounding the village of Mendocino, California.
nursery and display garden are located in Healdsburg, California, which is about
70 miles north of San Francisco, in the heart ot wine country.
Two acre Display Garden showcases over 650+ varieties of roses -- ranging from ancient one from the Roman times to recent introductions; native species
to highly hybridized ones; GIANT shed-eating climbers to micro-minis, and many
specializes in roses that do well here in Northern
California wine country (our roses grow alongside grapevines) in the same
wonderful climate that produces the best wine in the world! We offer many roses
that can tolerate sites with less than full sun. We also offer limited 'rare'
and 'collector' roses.
Irises have become our second passion, and we now have over 200 varieties interspersed
among the roses to greet us in early spring. Not only are they beautiful, but many are
fragrant and are repeat blooming.
A third passion is for perennials that are bee, bird and butterfly friendly. Our Butterfly Garden and
Hummingbird Wall are loaded with fuchias, salvias and abutilon that attract these winged beauties and
the hummingbirds crazy!
