I made a mistake. And being that I don't like talking out of my a@@, at least not willfully, I will correct myself. As you said, Zu, some of those Buck roses are new and not listed on HMF. I was intrigued as I couldn't figure out how there could be new Buck roses when the man is long gone. The explanation from Chamblees: there are indeed roses newly named by the Buck family. Dr Buck must have bred them long ago but remained unnamed somewhere in his greenhouse, until now. Cinnamon Spice and Mary Susan are two of them.
Obviously, (and that is my mistake), Cinnamon Spice could not be a fave in Houston area as it wasn't distributed until Fall 2010. I must have confused it w/ one of the Prairies (Princess, Sunrise, whatever) which are very popular in my area.
The Houston Rose Soc does have a list somewhere of 8 or so Bucks which they do not have at the Buck place or at univ of Iowa, and which they hope somebody will come forward one day and say they have it, so the family can revive/repropagate them.
I am really excited about E. of Goshen, thanks Zu for mentioning it. I'm gonna plant that next to pink Home Run for a play on single next to double and strong pink next to pastel pink. I love doing that kinda thing.
Skiekitty, last night I fixed a delicious meal for DH. The first of a series that I will use to sweet talk him into helping me expand a bed....devious rosarian I am....
