Certified Roses sells bodybag roses this time of year. Usually Lowes carries them. I'm looking for Moonlight Magic : http://www.helpmefind.com/gardening/l.php?l=2.4376

I've gone to at least 6 different Lowes here locally in the Denver metro looking for it. If ANYONE can find one (or two, or 3), PLEASE LET ME KNOW!! I will Paypal you immediately for the price of the rose, shipping, and other fees. I just don't want to have to buy a bodybag rose on eBay for $22!!! http://cgi.ebay.com/Moonlight-Magic-Hybrid-Tea-Dormant-ready...

Help an addict out, please? LOL! Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious! Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

Toni, our nurseries sold all of the Certified Roses in December and January, and I didn't notice that one anyway, but it's on Cliff's list of the Eurodesert hybrid teas he's prepared to dig up and ship. Have you contacted him?

Zuzu - AWESOME! I saw on HMF that no one was listed as selling it, so that's why I was despairing. I just popped him a quick email asking if he had it.

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thumbs up Thumbs up Thumbs up (like I need another "mauve" rose.. see my GVR thread LOL! Big Grin )

Toni, he said in his message that he was too busy to answer inquiries, so maybe you should just send in an order for it instead. Use "Rose order" as the title of your e-mail and send it to:

cliff.eurodesertroses@yahoo.com

Include your name, mailing address, and e-mail address in the message. Try to find others you want on the list because there are discounts for quantity purchases.

The prices are $14 for roses in 5-gallon containers, $24 for the ones in 15-gallon containers, and $29 for the ones bigger than that, which are planted in the ground. He'll bare-root them before mailing, so the postage won't be sky-high.

There are separate lists for shrubs and floribundas, climbers, etc. Contact me if you need a link to them.

Got an email back from Cliff stating that all roses have been shipped off to Vintage & there were no Moonlight magics left.

Oh well. Maybe next year.
