wanted: lost all plants in move to colorado
Before we retired to Colorado, I kept over 200 species or varieties of roses, and several hundred other plants in my gardens that had become dear to me.
Well, I've done the crying part as the move was rather sudden and in the worst winter weather. Now, I need to start over.
I have several hundred types of rose seeds, some open-pollinated, some hand pollinated, and most from the rarer roses of the world. I have these to trade. I am also a custom jeweler and have all that subject entails to trade.
The roses I miss the most and would like to find the soonest are (many are species or wild roses, but not all):
Latin binomial---common name
R. x Hibernica Wild Irish Rose
R. rugosa (typica)
R. alba-semi plena
R. moschata (Musk Rose)
R. rubrifolia (R. glauca)
R. davidii (this especially as it is my son's name)
R. damascena (the type of the Damask Rose; also Autumn Damask, Trigintipetala, and York and
Hybrid Musks - any
Other Favorites I am looking for are:
Little White Pet, Zepherine Drouhin, Lavender Lassie, The Fairy, Rose de Rescht, Stanwell's Perpetual.....
Have a look at my tradelists and also at a web gallery of my recently sold jewelry work. I cut my own stones and do all of the metal work, as well. I also do repairs, so there's a thought for trade.
Thank you all so much for your help in advance and for sharing your love of our plant friends with the world!
