The Witherspoon Story

Our mission is to enhance the lives of others through the outstanding care of one of God's finest creations, the rose.

When they founded Witherspoon Rose Culture in 1951, Bob and Thelma Witherspoon were pioneers of sorts. He was anxious to use his degree from N.C. State College, now known as NCSU but the field of professional rose care was uncharted territory.

Now, over 70 years later, many recognize Witherspoon as the leading rose-care company in the Carolinas and Virginia. Today son-in-law David Pike, and grandson, Taylor Pike, operate the business with almost 60 employees. These employees help care for some 80,000 rose bushes in over 2,600 gardens.

We have come a long way but we're still family owned and still operate under the same core values Bob Witherspoon started with: Honesty, Integrity, Diligence, Quality and Compassion.

Since 1951 Witherspoon Rose Culture has been installing and maintaining rose gardens of all kinds.  Witherspoon is staffed by certified rose specialists who draw upon years of proven methodology for planting and caring for rose bushes.  We have the knowledge and expertise to ensure success in all varieties of roses.

Surround yourself with beauty - join the rose culture.
