I'm not recommending Edmunds' Roses because I think their products are second-rate, but you might be interested in seeing the new roses being offered on the website.

Anna's Promise is one of the roses in Weeks' new series inspired by "Downton Abbey." It's also being offered now by Rosemania, a slightly better company.

I really like that "Best Kept Secret". Wonder if I can find that locally next year.. I thought that Centennial Star was an older rose... oh, I see in their description that it's a 1997. I guess it's new for Edmunds. I won't order from them. Last time I did (2012) they sent me some REALLY pathetic roses. I'd gotten roses from bodybags that were in better shape.

Believe it or not, their other plants are even worse. I bought a Clematis from them a couple of years ago that was the most pitiful excuse for a plant I've ever seen.

wow... got the Edmunds catalog in. *drool*

Too bad that every single Beverly I've seen here (I swear I've seen it locally) doesn't look like the photos... I think I lost my Rosanna from Palatine (not 100% sure as most from Palatine didn't bloom this year). But their pictures in their catalog are to die for...*sigh* I just have to keep remembering this:

That was the Music Box they sent me back in May 2012. I'd seen better bodybag roses. The big cane was about 3/4", the small cane was about 1/3". Really pathetic. But I'm going to use it as a shopping list for local nurseries in the spring.

So did the Music Box live for you?

Frilly - *LOLLLL* didn't sprout a single leaf. Will never buy another rose from Edmunds.

Toni......

I hope you got your money back ! Those roots were butchered !

Oh, how I yearn for the old days when I could go out to the nursery and pull the bare root roses out of the sawdust and look at the roots. They were never shorter than 2' ... and that is after they had been cleaned up for sale.

The only nursery I trust down the mountain, cuts the roots back to fit a five gal nursery can, but whoever their subcontractor is that supplies the nursery knows how to bud roses properly. Unfortunately, they are not going to carry any rose that calls my name this season, so no new roses for me in 2014.

I won't even bother to go to any of the other nurseries down there. They may have a wider selection, but they really don't care for their stock well. And the one nursery up here ... meh.

I'd rather weed than dust ... the weeds stay gone longer.
