Even Star and Weeks? That's disappointing. I know from experience that even roses that "don't need to be grafted" look better when they are. I have enough duplicates on both types of roots to see the difference. I'm just glad I'm not starting out as a gardener today. I have more than 40 years of growing big and beautiful grafted roses to look back on, and now I'm getting too old and weary to buy lots of new roses. I am more determined than ever, however, to buy more roses from Palatine before it joins the rest on the own-root bandwagon.

Palatine is going to start growing the OGR on a different rootstock. Rachel told me the name but I can't remember it right now.

mike said,
zuzu, I know you've not been satisfied with RVR; I included them because they are the only online nursery I could find that (presumably) carries Singin' in the Rain. It was consistently one of my longest blooming roses -- remember the photo I took several years of it blooming in the snow on Thanksgiving day here in New York? My only complaint about this rose is that the stamens are quick to turn brown and a little mushy while the petals hold up for a very long time.

Hi Mike. Roses Unlimited might have Singin in the Rain. When I checked the alphabetical listing it was not listed. However, when I went to their "rose varieties" page and looked under floribundas it WAS listed. Maybe you could call them and double check. Good luck

You're right, Margie. RU is selling it this season. RU's alphabetical list hasn't been updated for the last few years. I had to break the habit of looking for names there.

Wow, Toni! I wish our Home Depot had nice roses like that!

Margie, thank you SO much for alerting me!

Toni, those are beautiful roses; however, they must have been mis-marked, because Singin' in the Rain is an apricot colored rose.

*rolls eyes* Imagine that.. a big box w/a mismarked plant.. who'd'a'thunk it? But, you'd figure for $29.99/ea, they'd at least get the stinking name right...
