CindiKS said:Regan nursery is offering Bolero, a Romantica rose. I've wanted this rose for a while now. I've only seen it in person in So California. Never out here.
But when I look on helpmefind and on our own database, I see 3 (or more) roses with this name. The hybridizer name for the Romantica Bolero is MEIcauley, and it's a 1997 intro. HMF says zone 7 for this one.
The other newer Bolero is MEIdelweis, and it is a floribunda and it significantly more hardy, according to both our database and other comments I find online. It's from 2004-5
Regan says they have a floribunda Bolero Romantica from 2005 that is hardy to zone 6, which sounds perfect, but......is that what they have?
I am so confused. Someone please help!
I want to call them today to add it to my order, along with a few new Austins, but I don't want to end up with a rose I can't grow because it is only hardy to zone 7. We're 7 most years, but I'm learning that when I push zones, I end up with plants that struggle and look bad.
