I'm already making a tentative list, of course, but I know I'll change it 10 times in the next week, especially when I start adding the new ones to our database and take a longer look at them.
Maid of Honor and Rose Gaujard are being offered this year, and I could replace my little own-root ones, but neither rose appeals to me enough to spend any more money on it, so I might get something new instead.
Florentina looks wonderful. I have four Blaze climbers in various parts of the garden. They're beautiful and they rebloom reliably, but they're all 30 years old and a couple of them are frankly looking played out. They aren't in gopher-proof cages, so they might be roses that are nibbled by gophers every year, just enough to make them less vigorous but not enough to kill them. I think I'll replace one of them with Florentina.
Dream Land is another new rose that appeals to me. It was hybridized by Palatine's owner and it's a pretty climber.
Sweet Jane is the new rose that appeals to me the most. It has won lots of awards. It's 15 years old, but it's still listed on HMF only under its registration name, so it must be something that hasn't been marketed aggressively until now.
I always wanted Crescendo and almost bought it from J&P, but now I'm glad I didn't. I'd much rather buy it from Palatine.
