I went to every nursery in my area and nobody carried this rose or even heard of it. When I explained all about it, some looked it up and ordered it for next spring but I couldn't wait. Two just arrived in the mail from Great Garden Plants and I am so excited. Thanks to this article I think I have found the perfect rose for an arch I put on a small hillside on the north side of my house. I will be planting them tomorrow. Wish me luck.

Good luck! I'm glad you had a chance to get some of your local nurseries interested in it... it just seems to do well for more people in more places than any other rose I've heard about.

You might think about letting a clematis climb that arch also... I've been noticing rose/clematis combos lately and appreciating how well they go together. :-)
