|Well the other half today came home and said Sam's had brought out fresh pallets of roses in plastic bags for nine bucks each.
She said she was going to buy some IN CASE, some of hers went belly-up and thought if I wanted to put some in the home place these looked good, so off we went.
I bought :
All red but Eclipse
Wild blue yonder
Now there is little chance even one up here went belly-up and there is zero room for more so I will have to widen the rose garden up here which I had wanted to do just to have more room for burying in the fall anyway.
I had no plan to buy there but the plants looked real good and I wanted red roses.
I may pick up a few more else where but time will tell.

|I almost bought some bagged/potted roses at Walmart last week until I looked up hardiness and they were zone 7. Oregold and another yellow rose who's name I forget I wanted but resisted. Just as well. Not sure where I could put them and have them survive!!|

|Yes, the big box stores often sell the came plants nationwide without regard to their appropriateness for the local climate.
