Whoever wins this raffle, if you're interested in the Brushwood Nursery roses, I can definitely put in a good word for the beauty of the Joseph's Coat rose. I was at a local nursery recently and spotted a gorgeous rose bush whose blooms were an array of different and beautiful colors, so much so that I had to stop and take a look. When I picked up the tag, it said "Joseph's Coat" and I thought that was such a fitting name for it.

I have one and it is indeed delightful to grow nodding
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

I work for the city and I Drive around in a knuckle boom truck and pick up brush and junk that people throw away. About a month ago I found some plants and one of them is a Joseph's coat rose. I took a picture of the day I found them. I haven't planted them yet so I'll take another picture tomorrow but the first one in the black pot is the Joseph's coat rose and one next to it is a together fee hydrangea and the other two are a thornless angel rose. They look a lot better now

Good for you, plantcollector, for rescuing discarded plants!! I've done some rescuing in my time too (when I ride my bike around the neighborhood on green trash day). Here is an orchid that has been blooming for years that came from that source...

Most roses are tough as nails. The settlers used to tie them to their covered wagons and take them on their journeys across country to plant at their new homesteads. If they could talk, those roses must have had some amazing stories to tell. I took a cutting of a rose on an old abandoned property here. It turned out to the historic White Rose of York. It's planted on a chain link fence and blooms reliably every year without any attention at all. Love it!
