I saw the beautiful climbing rose, Berries and Cream, at the recent Mary Lou Heard Memorial Garden tour in Orange County, California.

Does anyone know where I can find this rose?

Thanks so much!

Unfortunately, on the HMF.com list of nurseries selling Berries 'n' Cream, the only place offering mail-order services is Hortico, and it is not carrying the rose this season. Check with your local nurseries. It shouldn't be impossible to find.

Hello Zuzu,

Mark posted a reply to me and said to check with you. He said that on HelpMeFind.com, he saw that four companies may carrie Berries and Cream. He said to check with you,

Garden Valley Ranch
Hortico
Rose Story Farm
Russian River Rose Company

Have you had good experiences with any of these companies?

Thank you.

Yes, Pam. As I already told you in my earlier reply, the only company of those listed on HMF that's still offering mail-order services this late in the year is Hortico, and it isn't carrying Berries 'n' Cream this year.

Rose Story Farm sells only cut roses for bouquets, not rose bushes. Russian River Rose doesn't sell rose bushes by mail. Garden Valley Ranch does offer mail order, but not this late in the year. If either of those two are carrying the rose this year, you'd have to come to Petaluma or Healdsburg to buy it. That's why I suggested that you check with your local nurseries.

Thank you for your reply, Zuzu. I was looking forward to going to Carpenteria, as that is a pretty close drive. Thank you for telling me that Rose Story Farm only sells cut roses for bouquets.

Go fot it! Carpinteria's not that far from you, and if they're growing 25,000 rose bushes, as their website says, they might be able to spare one. Big Grin Call them and ask whether they'll sell you a Berries 'n' Cream.
