|When I began to collect roses the gallicas caught my eye because of all the stripes and speckles...they are sometimes called 'the mad gallicas' I didn't know then that they need more cold than is usually found in Texas...this year should be a good year for them as it has been colder than usual.|
This is Cramoisi des Alpes.
a found gallica that used to be sold by ARE it does pretty well here.

|Beautiful foliage on these, Melva, and that's always been my favorite picture of Horsie, looking at the photographer with such love. He really adored you.|

|Thanks..it was a mutual admiration society...but since I was always taking the picture, we just have his side.|

|Belle de Crecy, another Gallica. This one grew into such an enormous monster that I gave it to my friend Joanne, who has 10+ acres of land. I think I planted 4 or 5 hybrid teas in the space it had once taken up.|

|Cardinal de Richelieu, another huge Gallica. Quite beautiful, with a unique combination of purple and beige in the blooms, but prone to attract every pest in your garden and gardens far away. This is where my curculio weevil infestations start.|

|Look at this gallica! I am hoping to get it from Vintage...|
but first, I need to sell some of my rooted roses...anyone want to see the list?
