For this update and the next we're departing from featuring roses by class to feature two types of special situations. Here in part one, the roses are in 15 gallon pots. The majority of these were imported from Europe and released from quarantine last year but never planted in the ground. They will be removed from their pots, cut back and shipped as actively-growing bare root plants. In part two, to follow, we'll feature roses planted in the ground in the display gardens around the house.

These roses in 15-gallon pots are $24 each, plus actual shipping costs. We have just one plant of each variety, unless a number is noted after the variety name. As always, we would be grateful if you would provide alternates, in case your first choices have sold by the time we receive your email.

To order, send an email with the subject header "Rose Order-Special Situations" to:
[email protected]. Orders will be filled and shipped in the order in which they are received.

In ordering these roses, you will be giving these wonderful roses good new homes and at the same time you'll likely be the first in your area to grow these gems.

It's important that we move these roses out quickly now so that we're able to cut down on the time needed to hand water them -- time which increases as the hot, dry desert summer sets in. Please seriously consider adopting at least a few! Thank you.

Recent Feedback

A few of the many positive messages recently received:

"Thank you so much for the roses. All three are wonderful, sprouting like crazy, and enjoying New Mexico. I must commend you for the manner in which the roses were packaged and shipped. I have never, absolutely never, received bare-root roses in such wonderful condition. They were literally dripping wet when I opened the packages. I expect they will be blooming in no time, and I'll be sure to send photographs."

"All have safely arrived.... Portrait isn't a bush - it is at least two bushes!! You must have had that mother plant for a long time or it likes the high desert. I had to get the wash tub out in order to soak her!" (from Tennessee)

"The roses are AMAZING! Linda Campbell has already shot canes up to almost 3'!" (from New Jersey)

"I can't believe the size of your roses! I love having roses with a story. Now I can tell anyone that visits my garden that these came from a special garden in the desert of all places." (from Indiana)

"The roses are already producing flowers and thriving. They are gorgeous!" (also from Tennessee)

Sue, not big on climbers, not big on purple but Stormy Weather would have been awesome. I would have given it serious consideration for my blue garden.

Polyanthas have been a delight and easy in my garden. I grow Orange Hearts, Pink Hearts and Red Hearts and they are incredibily easy. I do trim the spent flowers b/c in polys they seem to make the plant unkept if not done, vs. a HT, let's say. Highly recommend these. Grow3 other polys but can't think of names right now.

I am resisting researching the roses featured in Cliff's emails b/c I just don't want to baby any more plants this summer.

I wasn't aware there was a min. Pink Home Run. I got the Pink Home Run from Chamblees and while healthy and vigorous like reg. Home Run, the pink is turning to red as time goes on. This is not a rose I would replace if something were to happen to it.

I just ordered his last Silver Star & Shreveport. Yay!! How on earth I'm going to dig holes big enough for these monsters I'm not sure (at least I hope they're monsters!!)

Vossner, is your Pink Home Run reverting, or do you mean the blooms fade to red after starting pink? the Pink Home Run I got from Chamblees last year is growing and blooming like crazy. The blooms have all stayed pink so far. If I see a stem with red blooms, I'll cut it off.
Remember that children, marriages, and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get.
