I'm going through my rose collection and these varieties just aren't doing well here.
They are all fine roses and should do well in other climates or locales:
COMTESSE DU CAYLA
LAVENDER DREAM
NOID STRIPED MINI
SCENTSATIONAL
SWEET PEA

These are all strong, healthy own-root plants.
All I ask is compensation for shipping costs.

I can ship them any time between Xmas and the first two weeks of January.

I need to point out that when I send them the roses will be dormant and bare-root.
That should leave the door open for anyone to receive them -- shouldn't it?

They could be potted up in some moist potting soil or shredded bark and stored indoors if necessary -- or at least out of the weather.

Just a suggestion.

Oh, my, and they're in my favorite shades, too. Sigh, our ground is frozen solid. Wonder if they'd survive in my root cellar till spring? Not sure how cold it gets in there....
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

I have a place to pot them up and keep them until spring. How much would the shipping charges be? This would be such a wonderful addition to my garden!!

Here's a couple more that I have that will need homes.
If anyone is interested I can figure up the freight costs.

Dan, are you still doing this, or should we consider this closed?

Oh my, missed that MARRIOTTA, very interesting blooms! But I owe you cuttings. My memory is so bad so I need to make notes and take them outside with me!

Sue - I agree.. I just wish that my ground wasn't frozen solid 'cuz I'd love one of those Marriotas myself!

Dan - Would you like cuttings from some of my roses? I don't have 1/2 what Sue or Zuzu have, but maybe I have something you don't? I wouldn't be able to get you cuttings until July/ August anyways...
