They have some beautiful Clematis as well. Too bad it is too hot for them here. Really pretty!

Those are both gorgeous roses Mustbnuts. I kind of wished I had ordered a Celestial Night, but I certainly don't need to order any more!

Call me a coward -- but after finding out that Weeks had RRD in their production fields, and that they went ahead and released plants and budwood from that field, I'm not buyin' NUTHIN' that they grew.

Yes. I do realize that, since they shared budwood with other growers, the disease may show up elsewhere. But I worry more about roses coming directly from the source.

It even worries me to see Weeks roses for sale at the local nurseries next to the old roses that I came to buy.

OK, I need some education on this. Northland sells own root roses. I know that even roses on their own root can get RRD. However, since Northland would have had this rose in their trial fields for at least a year or so, wouldn't RRD have shown up in Northland's trial fields, if the plants were infected? How long does it take for RRD to show up if a plant was infected? It feels like the whole nursery is being condemned because they are selling Weeks roses. The roses I have received from them in the past have been great, healthy and have had no problems (and none of them were Weeks roses).

Now, that being said, I was somehow thinking these were Kordes roses (ack--the older I get the more I miss-read things!--I have to proof read my tests two or three times to make sure I catch all the typos, incomplete sentences, etc.). I too have no desire to support the greed of Weeks by buying their roses after they did what they did. So, I guess my question is, how long does it take for RRD to show up if a rose is infected? One year, two years, five years, immediately? Inquiring minds want to know.

My understanding is a good 3 years, and I think I've heard 4. I'm not taking that chance. I'm sorry for the nurseries ... but I have to protect what I have.

As it is, I hope no one in my area buys any. The good news is that most people here, if they care about gardens at all, are Xeriscaping.

From what I have read on RRD, Weeks would have known about the infection long before they shipped. It seems to show up quickly. I have educated myself as best I can just in case. Crossing Fingers! I have many roses ordered for this year but none from Weeks and nothing grafted. But, thank you for helping me to further my information.

I guess I'm taking a chance with 'Celestial Night', but I'm thinking there's no way a RRD infected rose is going to survive more than a winter (or two, if the first was unusually mild) in a colder zone.

I will definitely be watching this one closely - I might just keep it as a pot pet for this first year. If I can get everything currently in my garage in the ground, that is Hilarious!
