Roses Bred by Ben Williams
A Hardier Hybrid Tea Rose
AbeDarbyTrim Phot

Benjamin Williams began breeding roses on the east coast in the late 1970's when rose breeding in the US was almost all done on the West Coast. Many of his introductions were ignored by distribution channels stateside, yet many found their way into distribution through Canadian suppliers such as Hortico.

Unsurprisingly, his roses tend to be better suited to the kinds of conditions one finds on the east coast. They tend to be a little more cold hardy and a little better able to resist fungal disease than roses bred on the West Coast. It's a little difficult to look at his roses and be bowled over by some uniformly high standard for flower form, but there are some notable exceptions. Our belief is that American gardeners have yet to discover Williams' output and our expectation is that when they do, they will be pleased and will react in much the way they did as they grew to love Buck's introductions.
