http://www.heirloomroses.com/sale
it isn't as good as the sale this summer when so many were 8.75, but there are a few on the list that i didn't see before.
Anyone see any on there that they can't live without?

I'm thinking about Ginger Syllabub, Star of the Nile, Jacqueline du Pre, and Courageous.
Amazing Grace looks like one I would like, but i have not heard anything about it. Anyone here grow it?
How about Antique? Is that the same as Antike?
Applejack is a definite maybe. I have a good place for Fire Meidiland. Morden Centennial should do well here. How about The Fawn or Viking Queen?

I think Amazing Grace is Heirloom's name for Myriam. I love Myriam. It produces truly lovely blooms.

Rose (Rosa 'Myriam')

Antique is Heirloom's name for Antike 89.

Rose (Rosa 'Antike 89')

I haven't even looked at the list and I probably won't. I made the mistake of looking at the updated Vintage Gardens list and immediately saw five roses I want, but I have promised myself that I won't buy any more own-root roses in bands, so I'm trying my utmost to forget that Vintage is finally offering some roses it never has offered before, such as Bonfire Night and Baby Talk.

I saw the sale and was tempted, but I'm trying to hold fast to my resolution not to plant after August first.

I bought Antike 89 on its own roots two years ago. Last season it reached 8 inches tall. This season it reached 13 inches tall and made one blossom that was a little prettier than I expected. I have high hopes for it three or four years out.

One of my own root roses I got from RU back in '09 is about 6' tall (climber) and the cane is over an inch thick. Orange Velvet.

I saw the VG email come through and almost 100% of the roses I was looking for was available only as custom root. Beh. I've ordered twice from Heirloom (once as Heirloom, once as John's Miniature Roses). None of the Heirloom roses made it, and half of the John's Miniatures made it. So I don't have a good feeling about them. Of course, this was in '09 & '10, so maybe they're different now?

Cindi - Star of the Nile is a GORGEOUS rose. LOVE that rose. Got it from RU a few years ago (I ordered one for me, one for Alan). But what they show as SotN & what I got are two totally different critters. Here's more like what I have for SotN: http://www.helpmefind.com/rose/l.php?l=21.32587

Maybe next year...I decided I have enough new plants to baby for this winter.
The summer sale had better prices, anyway, and I have that huge order coming from Palatine.
I'm still playing with an order to Greenheart. Lovey dubby

I'll try to get a parade uploaded today. K & M is really nice now that it is a bit cooler.
Believe me, your roses look way better than mine this year.
We have a chance of rain several days this week, crossing my fingers.

Cindi - It sprinkled for a few moments this morning, supposed to have more "rain" tonight/tomorrow/Wednesday. I hope so! I just did a lot of painful work in the front. I ripped out the rock in a section about 25' long by 3' wide that narrows down to about 6", but it was over 8" deep! Damn I had put a lot of rock in there! All I had growing in there, other than lots of bindweed Thumbs down was 2 Russian sages, a lot of mishmash irises, and some yarrow that didn't really do well this year. So I put in some el cheapo mums from HD & Lowes, plus built it all up w/more top soil & then then topped it off with red mulch. Now my back's killing me. Why? 'Cuz I had to rip out the rock with a small hand rake (http://www.bloomingarden.com/Graphics/HandRake.JPG). BIG pile of rock, probably 2 wheel barrows full. Bleh. But it's gonna look so good when it's done!

Aaack! You have my sympathy. That's one job I won't do. The worst thing ever in a landscape is bermuda growing through landscape fabric covered by lava rock. Angry

We have a 50% chance of rain, but I doubt it.. doesn't feel or smell like rain at all. *sigh*

Nice work, Toni. I'll remember that rock pile the next time I get the urge to mulch with stone.

Steve - bad thing is that that's only a small bit of rock I have. My entire back fence is lined in rock that I've moved with 5gal buckets... 182 feet by 3ft. Plus another fence is lined (only 74ft there). And I have another section that I'm going to be putting this rock into, just to keep the dogs from digging in it. Bleh. Can't do that today, it actually is raining. And it's chilly, only about 60degs right now.

Steve - I did! It rained all yesterday afternoon & night.. this morning the sky's filled with fat poofy clouds, the birds are singing.. it's a wonderful day! And don't envy my energy level.. just realize that I have my chiropractor on speed-dial (as I'm seeing him tonight.. boy do I hurt!).

My chiropractor is terrific. He's a neighbor and a friend. I had to pull his tractor out of the mud in his pond on Sunday, and yesterday he had to x-ray my sprained ankle. It's hurt for 2 months now, and we suspected I had broken another bone. Every time any doctor gives me an x-ray, i wait for the reaction. I have so many old injuries, old breaks that never healed right. sure enough, he had to ask, now which part of your foot hurts? You have all these places that should hurt.....yep. My feet hurt. That's just how it is. I wish I had the means years ago to use a trainer, a physical therapist, a massage therapist and a chiropractor the way I do today.
I also wish I had used Chinese medicine back then too.
We got rain during the night! Don't know how much at home yet, because we were driving in it a few hours away. We went up to KC for a plant auction and I bought some beautiful 2012 daylily intros.
The lightning show was super cool out in the Flint Hills where it is wide open.

http://bellsdaylilygarden.com/pages/2012-introductions/linda... that was the nicest one there.
I bought most of the 2011 and 2012s. I would not have bought so many had my husband not been there, pushing me to buy more since the prices were very reasonable. I don't usually plant so late in the year, but that's when you get the best buys! Since I was buying to build my business stock, I picked some colors I don't normally buy for my yard. As my husband said, they are not a "pretty", they are inventory and breeding stock. Yup, Glare , just saying that took all the pretty out of them! Rolling my eyes.
Between all the daylilies and the iris i just got, and the roses I have coming from Palatine in November, I have a lot of work ahead of me;.
I am really glad my husband "encouraged" me to learn how to run the tractor. There is no way I could do all this with just a shovel.
Hopefully, though, all the new plants will fit in existing beds and I won't be tilling up any new ground. If fact, I hope to turn some areas back to grass or over to gourds. Gourds are bringing big money this year, and they are soooo easy to grow here.

That Linda is a beautiful daylily, but not $200 pretty! Yikes!! What can I say, I'm cheap! I just spent about 1/2 hour pulling out the last of the rock, then put down the 3 bags of topsoil I got for that section, planted the last 6 mums, then put the red mulch on top of that. It looks pretty good.. at least I *think* it looks pretty good as it was not only raining when I was doing this, it was also at 730pm which is completely dark here at this time of the year. I'll definitely have to check it tomorrow morning to see what it actually looks like. Then I started to work on the fence that my stupid dog busted down.. concreted that in right before it started to rain like hell. Yay...
