Jan Spek Rozen was founded in 1890 in the Dutch town of Boskoop southeast of Amsterdam in an area dedicated to flowers and ornamental horticulture crops. In those 128 years it has remained as a family owned and operated business in the same location with four generations of Directors beginning with the first Jan Spek in the business, a 21 year old entrepreneur, thru the current Director, Erik Spek. In recent years the majority of Dutch rose breeders have gone out of business or been absorbed by other companies, but Jan Spek Rozen has stayed the course by constant innovation combined with timeless values.

Jan Spek Rozen developed this The Pride of Jane® series, a group of English garden type roses that are marketed in conjunction with the Jane Austen Society. When a retailer wants to stand out in the market with a distinct product, these are an ideal alternative.
