Looking for OGR roses agressives

I am looking for some OGR and some fortuniana, cherokee rose,rose multiflora (Multiflora rose, baby rose, Japanese rose, seven-sisters rose, rambler rose, multiflowered rose)

Multiflora rose - Rosa multiflora;
McCartney rose - R. bracteata;
Cherokee rose -R. laevigata

I plan on raising them for root stock. I really would like a fortuniana as I hear these are the best root stock for this area. I am going to do some grafting. I would hate to have to buy a rose on fortuniana just to cut the top off to grow fortuniana. Sounds funny But I have searched a lot and these roses are very hard to find. I can buy all the hybrids for a dime but not these rugged guys.

Also looking for cuttngs of other OGR to plant and mount on root stock.

I thought I would ask here as there seems to be none on the rose forum or for trades.

Chamblee's Roses in Tyler, TX has R. fortuniana (the species) in stock. The listing is in the middle of the page on the link below.

Antique Rose Emporium also carries fortuniana, but it's listed as out of stock.

Here is a link that might be useful: Chamblee's

Thanks, I found a few other roses I wanted there also. Just cannot wait. I love rugged roses all others will die on my part of the coast. Either the heat neamatodes, gophers ,moles or salinity will get them.
