Beautiful pictures. Does the Grafin bloom a lot for you? How is the fragrance?
Baby Romantica is pretty too.

Great pictures, Lana! I was happy to see Astrid Grafin von Hardenberg,as mine hasn't bloomed yet. It is also from Hortico and was doing fine until a grasshopper decided to make a meal of some of it's leaves. I'm sure it will recover OK.

You are lucky to get Baby Romantica from your friend, as I don't know where else one could get it. It does look like a little Romantica rose!

Thank you, everyone.
Masha, the Grafin Astrid I got from Hortico was in a very bad condition. Right now I have only 2 canes and these are my first blooms. The fragrance is not strong, it smells like an expensive perfume.
Snowheather, I can try to root Baby Romantica and send it to you, in hopes that I can get cuttings of Thumbs Up from you. Please e-mail me: markiz41@verizon.net

Lionessrose, we live about 100 miles from Pittsburgh. Last year we were at a Uni-Mart here in town and Franco Harris came in to buy some gum...LOL... He must of been passing through.

Markiz37, How many rose bushes do you have?
