Rose Resource Web Sites

Below you will find links to Web Sites we feel are great resources for Rose information, cultivation, and history. Please do yourself a favor by checking these websites out:

Horticulture - Morrison Gardens - Morrison Gardens is perhaps best known for the more than 110 cultivars of Heritage, Antique and Old Roses, consisting of over 275 plants lovingly collected, identified, preserved and cared for by the Morrisons. Their collection consists primarily of Old Garden Roses, but does include selected roses introduced after 1900 that display strong "Species" traits.

Insect information - Baldo's Bug and Roses - Why we try not to spray unless we absolutely have to, The good bugs. Welcome to Baldo Villegas' Bugs and Roses Home Page. The reason for the name is because of my interests and expertise in entomology (bugs) and in roses. Consequently, I plan for this website to be the most complete resource for pest, diseases, weeds, and problems encountered in growing roses. If you expect to see beautiful roses here, forget it. You better go to Fantasyland or to another website. Every rose illustrated in this website will have a problem. In some cases there is no solution but in most cases I will try to come up with the culprit that could have caused the problem and hopefully help you avoid the problem in the future. Please look around and see if you can diagnose your rose problems with the help of this website. If you don't find what you are looking for, please send me a message at and I most likely have that information tucked away somewhere in my files.
