Hi ya'll. I'm seeing a lot of names I remember from another gardening site. Hmmm, can't remember the name of that one, Whistling Anyway I am thinking about buying a Nacogdoches, but I'd like to know as much as possible about it first. Thanks for your thoughts.

Where are you getting it? I've been looking for one. Chamblees' website says they don't have any for sale this year. i saw one at a rose show and it was beautiful. I've never seen one growing, so can't help you at all... Rolling my eyes.

Hey Mary Lee!!! How great to see you!

I bought a Nacodgoches from Chamblees last week, actually.

I'm a little north of you, and I've only had it for a week, but our Master Gardeners are growing one in the demo gardens, and it does just fine.

Cindi, thanks for your answer. There is a nursery here in town that I think will get it in again for Mother's day and the Rose emporium in SA has it listed but it's out of stock. I can't imagine it not being available for mother's day. We'll see.

Trish, congratulations on the upcoming addition. That's wonderful.

I'm glad to hear good reports on Nacogdoches. I've been hoping for a good strong yellow rose for a long time. Need some more yellow in my yard. Thumbs up

I've been sick for awhile, but I think my energy might be coming back finally. I'm trying to figure out the best way to reclaim my back yard. After the Alaskan winter we had and then last years horrible drought I think all my grass is toast. Amazingly most of my roses survived, but they need a lot of work. One area of my yard seems to be full of gophers too. I think before I plant anything there I need to somehow fill those tunnels and of course get rid of the critters.

Mary Lee, good luck with your project. It was my success with roses in Austin that sent me happily down the path of rosemania. And it's not such a bad destination. You might find the Gophinator to be of help.

Nacogdoches died its first winter here in zone 7b. Perhaps if I had heaped six inches of mulch over the crown in fall things would have been different. I'm sure your experience with Nacogdoches will be different from mine because our weather patterns in the spring are very different. We can get many freeze-thaw cycles in the spring. It can be 90F in February. It can be 20F in May. And it can make dozens of round trips between freezing and 70F in between. Tender roses tend to just die here.

Thanks for all your answers. I'm glad I live down here where Nacogdoches has a chance of surviving. Sorry I'm so late getting back to my own thread. It's been a really busy week. I wish I could get this rose now, but it's a good thing I didn't because it would have to be way down on the list.

I tried Nacogdoches twice because it was such a pretty yellow. If I remember tags correctly, it's also known as "Grandma's Yellow Rose" in some places. The nurseries around here always have it in stock, but I had such bad luck (rust, black spot, mites, thrips, etc.) I gave up on it. And that was through the drought! It may have been the bed too though. I just put some salvias into it this year. Whistling

I grow Grandmas Yellow (Nacogdoches) because it was rated as a Texas Super Star plant. So far, though small, she is doing okay here, but she is only two years old and her first deal summer was the drought.
