Roses in Dallas

I am going to visit Dallas, Texas this week and plan to go to the Chambersville Rose Garden while I am there. I don't think much is blooming now, but would like to go anyway.

Is there anything else you recommend seeing while I am there? Thanks for any thoughts, Gean

They also have a great bargain area at Chamblees with roses at $2.50 and $5. And there regular priced roses are a reasonable price as well. Have fun and let us know what you end up bringing home! And if your hungry the best bar b q ribs are not far in the town of Kilgore at The Tavern. Have a great week!

ogrose, thanks so much. That's what I couldn't remember that I wanted to see. :)

boncrow, I don't think I'll make it as far as Tyler, but it is a good thought. I've been to Chamblees only once but it is a memorable place for sure. I love bbq too, so thanks for the recommendation.

Thanks again! Gean

I went to the Earthkind trial gardens in Farmer's Branch about a week ago, and many of the older roses had been taken out, and they seem to have started a trial of David Austin roses. There are also quite a few Pioneer roses and Buck roses, and some remaining older Earthkind roses.

This past weekend I went to the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens, where Mrs. Dudley Cross, Marie Pavie, and Souvenir de la Malmaison were looking surprisingly good, amongst others.

Enjoy your trip!

Thanks for the heads up, mesigh.

I used to live in the area and really like the Ft. Worth botanic gardens. I am glad to hear the roses are doing well there. My daughter now 30 used to splash her feet in the fountains there when she was a baby. Nice memories :)

boncrow, that is funny! I do the same thing, mix things up, I mean.

Thank you, Gean
