Not too exciting the new "Easter" catalog... but I surely wish that my Tuscan Sun looked as good as the picture in the catalog did!

I agree about the boring catalog, but their picture of Tuscan Sun is also boring to me. I always cite it and their picture of Catalina as examples of poor merchandising. I never wanted either one until I saw them in person. The J&P photos show solid-color roses that don't even hint at the wonderful color variations both of these roses exhibit. I think our database photos (including yours, Toni) are much more appealing:

Their good photographer left in the mid 'nineties if I remember correctly. I find (the photos of) "Our Lady of Guadalupe" and "Monkey Business" irresistible. But mostly I look at their catalogue and I am amazed at how far and fast a company can fall.
