Is anyone planning on getting this rose ? It's new for 2014.
I know lots of people don't like orange in the garden but this rose (from what I've seen of it, anyway) leans more toward Coral with white. My local nurserman told me he's seen it and it reminds him of a coral/orange version of Double Delight.
I pre-paid for one which should be at our nursery in two weeks.
Now to find a place for it !

I haven't ordered one and I'm not exactly planning to buy one, but I'm sure I'll buy it if I see it in bloom at a nursery.

This description on the Edmunds' site reminded me how much I used to love creamsicles.

The mention of the creamsickles sorta clinched it for me, too, since I loved those !
One of the staff at our nursery said the rep. from Weeks brought a cluster of the blooms in to show them and she said it's realllllllllllly nice.
I used to say I wouldn't buy "new roses" until they'd been out for a while because too many of them get over-hyped and don't live up to the pre-introduction accolades.
Hmmmmmmm.............

Edmunds had it last spring, and Chamblee had it this year. One of the larger nurseries in Kansas had it this summer and I saw it, but for some reason didn't bring it home.
My Edmunds version died, but the tiny little one from Chamblee is still growing. It had one little blossom this year, which I trimmed off since the plant was so tiny.
The photos make it look like it will blend in well with other roses. Mine is in a bed with mostly Buck roses and pastel Earthkinds, so it should be the star of the area! Funny, Double Delight and Rainbow Sorbet are about 5' from it in this bed. I hope they all complement one another.
Mike, which nursery is getting in roses already? I'm going to be out there next week, and i was hoping Kniffings has theirs out for sale. They may even have some of the 2015 roses. Hurray!

Cindi: It's H and H Nursery in Lakewood. They told me they'd have their new roses in on the 15th.

Got mine yesterday !
Our nursery sells them in those pulp pots vs. bare root in those "bins" like they used to do.
I'm really excited to see how this one performs.

I did go to Kniffings on Thursday, and they had just gotten theirs in. They are using the raised bins with sawdust and peat to sell bare root plants. Bare root from them is 16.95 versus 18.95 for potted in 5 gallon pots. Lucky for me, the ones I wanted were still bare root because I would just have to bare root them anyway to get them into my luggage! Unlucky for me, their Austin shipment wasn't in yet, just Star and Weeks.
The Coretta plants were HUGE!
