The nursery is offering most of its roses at deep discounts right now. Prices are very low, as low as $7 for some.

I wholeheartedly recommend this nursery. The roses I received from them last year were the best I bought all year.

Two roses from a previous visit were still in my cart! And they were on sale. What luck. Of course, three day shipping cost as much as the roses. But if half of them were to thrive in my garden it will turn out to be a screaming deal.

I notice most of the people responding are from southern zones, and this company is in FL...

I'm not way north, but I'm zone 6b... anybody have an idea on how their rootstock would do for me?

I know I can call them tomorrow but wanted to see if anybody here could weigh in...

The ones in my shopping cart are still in stock...

Thx!

It looks to me like they are selling own-root roses. My own guess - from gardening in zone 6b - is that tea roses and an occasional HT might be affected by frost.

I have quite a few of their roses and they are doing great here in 5b. I only lost one rose and I think it had something to do with the spot it was in. I can't remember if it was Maggie or Rhode Island Red I lost but I lost one of those and it was a problem with the soil in the spot last year. If they had a climbing rose I liked in stock that could also handle some shade I would get another rose from them.

My orders:

Maggie
Rhode Island Red

I ordered:

- Penelope
- Napoleon
- Cramoisi Superior
- Carefree Beauty

Not completely certain I can find perfect spots for these or keep them alive there... The first rose to perish in my garden here was Penelope, but I stopped watering before the rose got well established.

I'm guessing that Cramoisi Superior will perish from frost, I've lost two or three of these already. But there's a peculiar rightness to the look of a mature plant that draws me to keep on trying.

I keep on mixing up Napoleon (the tea rose ) and Chapeau de Napoleon the moss? rose. So already I'm thinking I might have to send this rose to a friend with the same last name as the rose.

Carefree Beauty is among the first roses I discovered to be carefree, unlike Carefree Wonder. This one, I think, will go outside the fence, and we shall see how carefree it is in the face of hungry deer. Hopefully it will be true to its name, even here.

Thank you so much for the input!

I ordered 9... 3 for me, 3 for my MIL, and 3 for Aspenhill (my BFF Terri)

We each wanted 'Carefree Beauty', as it's one that Sharon Brown grew and loved, one tough rose to remind us of a tough & lovely lady. She also spotted 'General J' and I decided he'd round out my selection nicely also.

I was on the lookout for Earth Kind or other "tough" varieties, also lots of blooms ("flushes"), and fragrance.

for Mom
'Red Smith's Parish' (borderline at 6b but we'll see)
'Belinda's Dream' (Earth Kind shrub, medium fragrance)
'Spice' (Earth Kind shrub, few thorns, strong fragrance)

for me -- all tolerant of some shade, fragrant, blooming in flushes, and tough
'Ballerina' (flushes, "highly recommended" on David Austin site,
'Carefree Beauty' (Earth Kind)
'General Jacqueminot' (hybrid perpetual, strong fragrance, flushes)

for Aspenhill
'Carefree Beauty'
'General Jacqueminot'
'Paul Neyron'

I grew Ballerina in NJ and was very pleased with it. I noticed that in its early years it was lightly touched by fungal infection, but after it had settled into the garden it was generally fine. Few roses can literally cover themselves in so many roses. I had it planted next to a purple smoke tree, and I thought they looked good together, FWIW.

Good Luck with the roses. I think you got some that will be very well suited to your area.

Thanks for the NJ report!

I'm not sure exactly where I'll place my 3 new roses, but I now know 'Ballerina' will be the middle one in the grouping, placed so it shows off well from across the yard!

I had the nicest email exchange with Don Rogers at Reverance for Roses... First, he did a drop/add with my order, no problem. Then he discovered that he was out of 'Belinda's Dream' and asked me for a sub. I described where I'd planned to put that rose and why... I found several in his inventory that I thought might work and asked him to help me choose.

He said he and his wife discussed it and suggested a trio of roses in that location, with 'Red Smith's Parish' in the center and 'Bon Silene' on either side. He's not even charging me shipping for the extra rose.

So I got design help as well as help choosing the most suitable cultivar for that spot. Since 'Bon Silene' is a tea rose, it should be more like Mom's beloved hybrid tea roses that she grew for decades, making it probably a better choice than 'Belinda's Dream' (a shrub rose).

Anyway, I'm very impressed.

Zuzu, thanks for steering me in their direction!
