I tried 3 of the Poulsen series of landscape roses this spring, Nashville, Kent, and Manhatten. 1 was from Sam Kedem, and 2 were from Arena. The Nashville from Kedem's had a monstrous root system on it, and quickly developed into a nice sized shrub with many lovely striped blooms. It looks great at the feet of my striped Fourth of July climber. The Kent and Manhatten were spindlier specimens, and I thought that Manhatten might not make it at all. Both have decided to live with a vengeance! The Kent has not stopped blooming, and even the Manhatten has managed two flushes. None of these has been sprayed, and only the slow starter Manhatten has had any spots whatsoever, and it seems to tolerate them well without the instant defoliation that occurs with so many roses. I'm impressed, and I'm going to try more of the series next spring, but I'll probably order all of them from Kedem's as I was very happy with all of the roses I ordered from them in addition to the Nashville. He has a nice selection of Buck roses, too. My Mia Amiga from him has just now started to really establish itself and flourish. Beautiful large peachy pink blooms, and no spots and no spraying. If a rose can endure my climate with no spots, then it's a darn good rose!
