|Just yesterday, October 23, 2009, wonderful Connie forwarded/emailed me a list of blackspot resistant Roses as a current listing:
Jean's No Spray List
|Jean is from Nashville, TN, and her list is quite extensive. I have used it for years, but can you use it, Serena? I think the teas and noisettes start at zone 7. You might like some of the chinas. I don't know about the bourbons. |
It was nice of you to forward that list to us.
|All I wish to add is my god Connie sure know how to attract bees look at all that honey and not a single drop of vinegar. Very glad you asked her Serena way to go be the Bee and bring us all some honey thank you ;) I knew you was here somewhere lol I flushed you out you fun lil rose thief you he he he|
|Thanks, Sammy and Wes, and all the thanks back to our dear Connie and for the original Jean! Connie actually wrote me 5 long wonderful paragraphs outlining everything, difference of fragrance and blooms! What teas and perpetuals are like, all the intense details. We are so blessed and lucky having her! Krista and I actually push the zones. I have two zone 7 roses and shocker of shockers, they bloom the most out of the cold weather when all the other zone 5'ers except for Penny Lane come to a grinding halt. I'm actually a zone 6- very mild winters, but what makes us borderline 5 is that we get maybe one or two sudden one-day freezes or one-day ice storms. I figure even if I lose a rose, I can always replace it and continue to support our favorite, beloved vendors in this way. |
Both Connie and Krista allowed me to see that Teas are not good for me, anyway, because their fragrance does not waft. Had they not told me all this good information, I somehow had the misconception that teas were very, very fragrant (who knows from where I got that idea, LOL)
|Ohh... Ohh... pick me..... pick me... I know.... I know... you got them from an onion field ?? Can you send that whole list over here via that e-mail thinggie plz plz plz |
ganna steel yours too sammy heres wishing me luck
