Brad - I have been dying to get my hands on Tuscan Glow! No where is carrying it this year. Sad It just is special to me.

Also really like Peal of Bells (No surprise Mary Ann?) and Hornblower has some appeal as well.

Leslie ..I really liked that one too beautiful blend of colors and a good pedigree Smiling I thought I saw it in Kieth's catalog this year, email him to see if there is still some available he is the only source for it that one was a brand new intro last year.

Here is another group of Barry's Plants that looked wonderful last year in Oregon that I am looking forward to seeing again in the spring. It is a toss up for the favorite of these between Carnival Capers and Head Over Heel's both have grown well at home for me and command your attention when there blooming. Drooling

I have loved Peal Of Bells since the first time I saw it!!! Maybe I can afford Peal Of Bells next year. I'm also really glad I ordered Carnival Capers.

Brad, do you know if anyone has tried Hybridizing with Head Over Heals? Tom Johnson says it's pretty much untried but should be a strong parent for strong growth, stems, and buds. I'm just wondering if anyone else has tried it?

Marilyn.. Barry had 1 in the catalog this year from (Head Over Heels) called Aura of Glamour from the description in the catalog it sounds awesome, maybe it will be blooming at Kieth's this year. I used Head Over Heel's quite a bit in 2013 Loved everything about it and have lot's of seedlings from it the plants look really well so far some with 8 + increases coming from a seed a year ago the extra months growing in the heat of the greenhouse really gives them a jump start and after the winter we had I know it is Cold Hardy will hopefully find something fun blooming in the bunch of them. Smiling It will set pods and is Fertile will share pics when they start blooming.

Mary Ann... Green Grin! we will have something to look at this year they are starting to put on growth and we seem to be having a warm spring will be 70's this week not sure why we are so far ahead of our neighboring states but I'll take it Smiling this may actually be a normal bloom season if the weather stays the same. It is a real treat to come outside and find so much green after such a cold winter I even had a good majority of the roses pull through this year although it was not like our previous year it was still bad. I think the difference was the snow cover insulated everything. A couple cell phone pics to show you where we are at currently Smiling

Thanks for the information Brad! It just looked like it might be a good one. It's been on my list for awhile so I may just have to add it to one of my orders! Whistling nodding

I'm glad you are having a good spring Brad, after last year's disaster you disserve it. It was warmer this morning, 20 degrees, then the freezing rain came and it's cloudy and about 30 degrees now. Tomorrow is supposed to be nicer.
