so I'm going through all the nurseries to see who has what and what I plan to get from where and when.. rebuilding is going to take a spreadsheet and an itinerary and maybe my husband as my lovely assistant .. any way I was looking at Austin's page .. I cant remember why I usually get my austins from ru . and Desdemona caught my eye has anyone tried it?

heres my list and most of these are just the ones I had and loved and left behind . a couple I never got around to getting
about face
lady x
medallion
sheilas perfume
sunset celebration
bettyboop
charisma
ebb tide
French lace
mme Isaac pereire
eden
distant drums
English perfume never had
koko loco never had
crown p marg
teasing Georgia
heritage
abe darby
peach drift for basic landscape in areas.
scepter'd isle never had
grey pearl gonna see if greenmantle has it
I havnt planned out the climbers yet. and what I'm really exited about is that we have areas where I can let things grow big an wild. I kept my biggest roses that ive schlepped from house to house so I have 2 beds done off the deck .. the one alongside the sun room will have teasing Georgia in the corner and Idk what else. there is some lavender and st johns wort in there too. ill get some pix of the other areas later.
in these beds are aloha (kordes) acropolis Carmella, and daylilies the other has bouquet parfait Neptune and cl orchid masterpiece to let drape on the deck its not a true good climber but the blooms are worth the ugly form.

Is Desdemona already available in the United States? I didn't think it had reached this side of the Atlantic yet.

it was available to order from david austins official site. 29 for bareroot preorder for 2017. I think I got roses from them when I first started out and they were huge. ive never paid that much for 1 rose though. Desdemona looked nice on hmf .the color caught my eye .theres not a lot of white buff and cream austins. I may splurge and try it. o/t but has any one had to deal with chameleon plant houttuynia? I have this area that could house many roses and I plan to put some there but its filled with chameleon plant. it seems to have stayed where the previous owner put it. and ive read that it wont harm roses but I know that I wont be able to get rid of it in this lifetime.

There's no Houttuynia in my garden, but I have friends who rue the day they planted it.
