Last year I toured the Biltmore gardens and was halfway frustrated because the names aren't posted on the trial roses. It does make for a fair trial, though. Now I know the names, and I'm super happy to see that some of my favorites there are ones I grow here!
Savannah is a truly superior rose in Kansas and in North Carolina! I saw it in Texas at Chamblee nursery and it was a standout there too.
Glad to see Ping Lim won an award.
I'll have to look for that climber "Flying Kiss", and "Phloxy Baby".
Remember that children, marriages, and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get.

I have Phloxy Baby which I bought despite its unappealing name. It is, so far, an interesting little rose.

Savannah is recommended in the book entitled: "Roses Without Chemicals" by Peter Kukielski.
