Hi All,
I'm new here. I am on a mission to find a Gracie Allen rose bush to plant next to my wife's George Burns. I've looked at all the sites, HelpMeFind and contacted Week's Roses who had wholesaled them. If any one can help in any way I would be grateful. We'd called each other George and Gracie since the time we'd met, so I am really keen on finding one.
Thank you!

Welcome to the forum, George!
I have not seen that rose, but hopefully someone will pop in with an answer soon!
Welcome!

From everything I was able to read on Gracie Allen. It did not seem to perform well. Which is why your having a hard time finding it any where. I for one will keep an eye out for the rose in case you still wish to grow it. Hurry up spring!

It can't be that hard to grow. Most of the own-root roses I've bought from Heirloom are weak and spindly, but Gracie Allen is growing reasonably well. I'm sorry they aren't carrying it anymore, Crackers.
