Got Two Roses From Chamblees Today
They looked very healthy, but they are siting in the shed since it is supposed to be close to freezing tonight, if not dead on. I am sick of this cold in March. We are supposed to be at least 25 degrees warmer, but I'm sure I will wish for the cool soon.
Anyway, I got Loretta Lynn, lovely peachy pink with some deep gold tones, and Wild Blue Yonder. The own roots (HTs) generally do well here, whereas the grafted ones tend to run out of "steam" after 15 or so years.
I love Wild blue Yonder and have two grafted one, but they had a fair amount of cane die back this year, so I am hedging my bets with an own root.
It smells good too. My plants from Annie's Annuals should be here tomorrow.
I'm making progress in my weeding, but still have quite a way to go.
