|Am interested in adding a number of new roses to my garden (Tampa Florida- 9b) Would like to use Shrub and English roses if they would work for me here. I want full flowers and fragrance. Have no idea who to buy from. I see some listed in the Wayside catalog and also looked into Chamblee's but am at a loss who to buy from. Any help would be appreciated. Dan|

|The Antique Rose Emporium has been good. I like Jackson & Perkins. You might want to check out the Rose Forum here on ATP for additional recommendations.|

|Can you grow own root roses where you are? Well a rose grafted on fortunianna root stock be needed. This is the root stock used in Florida. It thrives well in heat and sandy soils. |
Chamblee Nursery is an excellent own root nursery.
Cool Roses is a good place for roses grated on fortunianna root stock (recommended for your area).
Hope this is helpful. Pat
