Carol. this is a great thread. Your photos are a serious temptation for anyone with a credit card and nurseries on speed dial. Not that I do
What can you tell me about your Nicole Carol Miller? It's so interesting. Has it had problems?
Jim, your roses are beautiful. You know, I think that people in your area should take a lesson from your selections. You have the "right rose, right place" thing down. I grow Julia Child and Plum Perfect too and should show them these pictures so they'll know what they should be doing. I think yours are no spray, am I right?
Jeri, I admire so many of your roses. I hope those that can make it in the east will eventually find their way into gardens on both coasts. Between the closure of so many nurseries and RRV, I wonder about the future of roses in general, but especially older roses where there's little marketing incentive to advertise them and get them out before the public. I wish I had the right spot for Florence Bowers Pink Tea. It's such a pretty rose and might even do well here.
Kris, what are your roses? They are really pretty! Are they as fragrant as they look?
