|These are on sale for $10 at ARE:|
- Peggy Martin
- Stephen F. Austin
- Marie Pavie
- Sweet Pea
- Carefree Beauty
- Climbing Pinkie
- Red Cascade
- Caldwell Pink
I'm trying to decide which to buy. I've had above average luck with ARE roses. I think there's a space in my garden for Peggy Martin and Stephen F Austin. I'm sorely tempted by Cadenza. My garden is already graced by four Caldwell Pink and one Red Cascade.

|Where does it show the sale prices? For me, they all show the regular $18.95 price.|

|Why do they make the shipping rates so hard to find? I can't find them anywhere on the site. They used to be way too high -- 40% of the merchandise cost (regular price, even if the items were on sale) for shipping to the West Coast.|

|Steve, I have all of those roses and none of them are duds. I love Lafter and she grows huge here - as does Peggy Martin. Climbing Pinkie reblooms all summer here but the cane tips seem to die back (?) which is less than perfectly lovely. Also she is more of a heaping rose for me than a climber.|

|Wow! Ditto to everything porkpal said!|
Remember that children, marriages, and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get.

|porkpal & Cindi, thanks for the summaries. |
Sue & Zuzu, the e-mail is all html, so I cannot paste it here. The order system seems not reflect the reduced prices: neither does it let you select immediate shipment. Toll-free phone goes to an answering service. The toll-free number is 1-800-441-0002. I might try their Customer Service number 979-836-9051 Monday. I do wish it were easier to save $9 a rose.
