Certified Rose History
Certified Roses, Inc. is a leading producer and wholesaler of garden roses serving customers throughout the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico. The company began in 1949 as Cooperative Rose Growers, which consisted of fifty rose growers in East Texas and our processing facility in Tyler, Texas.
Today, Certified offers a broad selection of roses that are available at over 5,000 retail outlets including independent garden centers, mid-size hardware stores, and mass merchandisers. Our product line features the award-winning Simply Brilliant™ and RealFragrant™ collections along with a high-quality selection of western grown roses spanning traditional hybrid teas and floribundas to hardy shrub roses.
Our Research & Development team travels the globe - from Europe to South Africa and New Zealand - to bring home gardeners the next generation of roses. We’re constantly searching for exceptional new varieties that are healthy, hardy and disease resistant. Each year, we test and evaluate hundreds of new varieties with the goal of delivering the right genetics to the right regions.
As Certified expands its line of award-winning and sustainable garden roses, we’re also expanding our team and investing in facility upgrades to ensure we’re providing our customers consistent, high-quality roses each and every time!
