How are the heights measured?
All tree, and nothin' but the tree! We measure from the top of the soil to the top of the tree; the height of the container or the root system is never included in our measurements.
What is a gallon container?
Nursery containers come in a variety of different sizes, and old-school nursery slang has stuck. While the industry-standard terminology is to call the sizes "Gallon Containers", that doesn't exactly translate to the traditional liquid "gallon" size we think of. You'll find we carry young 1-gallons, up to more mature 7-gallons ranging anywhere from 6 inches to 6ft.
How does the delivery process work?
All of our orders ship via FedEx Ground! Once your order is placed online, our magic elves get right to work picking, staging, boxing and shipping your trees. Orders typically ship out within 2 business days. You will receive email notifications along the way on the progress of your order, as well as tracking information to track your plants all the way to their new home!
Why are some states excluded from shipping?
The short & sweet answer is: "United States Department of Agriculture Restrictions." Every state has their own unique USDA restrictions on which plants they allow to come into their state. While we wish we could serve everyone, it's for the safety of native species and helps prevent the spread of invasive disease & pests. We've gotta protect good ole' Mother Nature, after all.

Growing the Pink Brick House™ Rose
Size and Appearance
The Pink Brick House Rose is a compact Floribunda rose, with dense, multi-branching foliage from low-down, making a rounded bush that grows to just 2 or 3 feet tall and wide each year, after spring pruning. The dark-green foliage is glossy and healthy-looking, and it stays that way thanks to this plant’s remarkable disease resistance. The leaves are small and compact, with each one having on average 5 small leaflets, just one inch long, with a rounded oval shape, pointed tip and serrated edges. New stems are produced constantly, throughout the season, each one ending in one or two large buds. These open into big, 3-inch diameter blossoms of glowing electric pink. Each bloom is made of about 15 broad, velvety petals, forming a deep bowl of beauty. At the heart of each open flower is a cluster of golden stamens, surrounded by a soft ‘eye’ of paler pink, feathering into the deep pink as it extends into the petals themselves. Truly a thing of beauty that is a wonderful and fascinating close-up as it is vibrant and colorful from a distance. Your bush will never be without several blooms, and the last an incredible 10 days on average, giving blooms all the time from early summer to the end of fall. As the flowers fade the petals drop neatly, without any need for dead-heading. Since it doesn’t produce rose hips – seed pods – it puts all its efforts into more blooms, and the remnants soon disappear beneath the new growth.
Using the Pink Brick House™ Rose in Your Garden
With its compact form and profuse blooming this rose is perfect for color anywhere in your garden. Grow it among flowering shrubs, or in a dedicated bed out on a lawn. It is especially effective planted in groups of 3, 5 or more, spacing plants 18 inches apart for continuous coverage of the area. Grow it as an edging along a path or driveway, or plant it beside a gate or flanking a door. Its compact form also makes it ideal for planter boxes, where even alone it will give you color all season.
The Pink Brick House Rose is hardy almost everywhere. It grows well in cool or warm zones, and thrives everywhere from zone 5 to zone 9, without any winter protection. It can be grown in outdoor planters and tubs from zone 7 up.
Sun Exposure and Soil Conditions
Plant your Pink Brick House Rose in full sun for the best results, but some shade for a short time each day won’t have a big effect. Too much shade will quickly reduce flowering. It grows best in heavier loam and clay soils, and sandy soils should be enriched with plenty of organic material. The soil should be well-drained, so avoid wet, low-lying spots in your garden. Once established this plant will tolerate moderate amounts of drought, but flowering is often reduced in dry conditions, so water regularly for the best results.
Maintenance and Pruning
This remarkable rose has excellent resistance to the two major rose diseases – black spot that causes leaves to yellow and fall, and powdery mildew that damages the foliage with a powdery gray coating. Free of these problems the Pink Brick House Rose always looks fresh and clean. Any minor pests like greenfly can be controlled with soap spray, or we recommend our Neem Oil Spray.
History and Origin of the Pink Brick House™ Rose
There is a curious connection between doctors and rose breeding, and many over the years have made it their passion. So it’s no surprise that physician Dr. James Sproul is a keen breeder who has devoted the last 20 years to developing new and exciting roses. The variety Thrive!® (‘Sprothrive’) is an earlier red rose he created, and after crossing it with an unnamed seedling he pollinated the offspring with pollen from a famous rose created by Will Radler, the Double Red Knockout® Rose (‘Radtko’). Among the offspring of this inspired cross he found a unique seedling with electric pink blooms, great disease resistance and the ability to keep on blooming, come what may. He christened it ‘Sprogreatpink’, and patented it at the end of 2020. This is it’s first year out, and everyone has great expectations of it. It has been released by Star® Roses and Plants with the trademark name of Pink Brick House™.
