Cal Coastal Rose Society Rare Rose Auction
Tooth Fairy (named after the shape of the tiny petals):
Okay -- now I'll tell you why I posted those:
It is time once again for our rose society to have its major fundraising event, and for all of you to drool over the rare and unusual roses that COULD come to live in your gardens. Most of the roses we auction are not now available anywhere else in commerce and there is something for everyone on the lists -- some for OGR enthusiasts, some for exhibitors, some for cold zoners and others more appropriate to warmer zones. This year we have something of a specialty in micro-minis and roses of Japanese origin, which seem to have a certain elegance to them. Anyways, please peruse the lists at your convenience. As always, the roses will be divided into a live auction and a silent auction, both held on November 13 in Carlsbad, California, and we will accept on-line bids until noon on November 12th. And again (because it worked well last year) we will be holding roses for those of you in colder zones until spring, and will ship them to you when your weather is appropriate. Almost all of the roses are own-root roses that we grew for the auction from cuttings.
We do not sell the same roses every year, so for this group, it may be now or never, you never know.
