Field Roebuck

Last Thursday the DAllas Morning news ran an article by garden columnist Marianne Greene. Field Roebuck a well known rose expert and writer was honored with a rose in his name. It read rather like an obituary. Today an obituary appeared in the paper.

According to his daughter, he was thrilled by the feature on Thursday and on Friday he passed. Poetic, isn't it.

I still remember that I found these forums when I decided to start digging up my front yard. Mr. Roebuck shot me a message: I know where you live, just dig a hole and plant've got great soil!

Just a public message to thank him and let y'all know who might be interested.

RE: Field Roebuck

There are 2 threads on the Roses Forum, one linked to the announcement about the rose, one linked to the obituary.

The rose was hybridized by Mike Shoup (Antique Rose Emporium), & it's a beautiful apricot...
sold out, of course, for the time being.
