LOL, short and to the point! I have a TON of roses from Chamblee's as well. This company is tops... they offer very reasonably priced roses that are typically healthy on arrival. On the rare occasions that I received a plant that wasn't up to my expectations, they were quick to replace it immediately.

I used to like Chamblees a lot, especially when they had pages of surplus roses on sale for $5 each. Their shipping charges were the lowest then too -- $2 per rose.

In the last couple of years, though, they've sent me some fairly crummy roses. What I really dislike is their practice of rooting several cuttings in the same container. The rose looks bushy until half of those cuttings die. That probably has a negative effect on the ones that survive too, taking nutrients away from them and exposing them to whatever killed the dead ones. Once in a great while, they've sent me roses with one trunk. Those always do much better. They're usually Austins.

I wasn't overly impressed with Chamblees. Roses were small, barely nothing more than cuttings, but they did survive, so I would order again onlyif they had something I couldn't get elsewhere.

Ashdown is located in SC, I believe, and there is an antique rose nursery in Iron Station, NC, that I will be checking out this spring in anticipation of adding more roses to my garden.

I would appreciate any other recommendations for roses that will perform in shade. Sue, I have MM on the list already.

Do you have Marmalade Skies, Angie? It's a floribunda that grows very, very well in the shade. So do most of the hybrid musks. Unfortunately, they don't have much fragrance, if any. This is Marmalade Skies:

Thank you, and look at that Valentine smiley. How cute.

I remember some people in the DG rose forum saying they thought the color was too garish when they saw an entire bed of Marmalade Skies at a nursery, but it's nice to have something vivid in the shade. That's why I have lots of tuberous begonias hanging in the shade garden. They light up the darkness.

Yes, it works in shade. Absolutely. It's starting to get famous for that.

Like, shade or dappled shade? My front yard faces pure north, and has a west side garage so it doesn't get that much afternoon sun on most of the yard. I have a few places that get less than 2 hours of full sun a day.. and less in the winter (of course, RIGHT in front of the garage door.. so that it stays a sheet of ice for most of the winter.. BLEH). I don't mean to be going over the same thing over & over again, but I've found out the hard way that my thoughts on shade and other people's thoughts of shade can be two different shades. I mean a place that gets NO sun pretty much. I call this my Dark Corner and I usually have coleuses (annuals) & shade perennials (hostas, spiderwort) there. There's sweet williams, columbines.. the astibles croaked (they were bad to begin with). That stupid big plant in the middle is a mottled elderberry that was supposed to be get only like 2-3'.. and it's almost 7' tall now, so it's coming out this spring once the ground thaws. I actually have to prop the darned thing up with some fishing line. It grew over 5' this past year. This is the more mature corner. Bleh. It gets morning dappled shade, which is why the elderberry shows the variegation.

I know what you mean about different ideas of shade. Full shade in my garden is almost imperative for many plants because of the triple-digit summer temperatures. Primulas, for example, would fry here if they had any sun at all, but sun's important in cooler zones.

My own Marmalade Skies is in an area that's shaded by trees for all but 2 or 3 hours a day, but I'm seeing it on everyone's lists of roses for the shade, so it's getting a good reputation for that.

Look: Down near the bottom of this thread, Charlene's offering Chamblee's roses for $5.25 each. She'll ship them bare root, so the postage won't be much either.

Hello rose lovers! Does anyone care to swap some rose cuttings? If so, I have a cubit set up for trades, no sales allowed.

Just click on my garden stuff traders link in my signature.

It's a new cubit and I could use some hits....hint hint *Blush*
