Thank you so much. You may have helped me identify the rose bush which was here when we bought our house. I love it and must move soon. So now I think I know what to look for. Can't wait to read more of the article.
I really liked your article and I'm looking forward to the up coming ones. I need all the tips I can get. I have never had luck with roses, in the past. I had quite a few beautiful yellow ground cover roses and the next year I think they got mildew or black spot. They started to grow, then died. Last year I decided to try again and planted Rugosa shrub roses and they seem to be doing well. Also, I planted Bonica and Carefree Delight Shrubs and they seem to have gotten a slow start, but are okay, I'll see in spring. Thanks for the great article -(and upcoming articles.)
I found all the information you provided before buying and planting my first roses this year, but I wish it had been all together and easy to find like your article. Since it is my first winter with roses, so I am anxious to read your next articles. Great job, Paul, as usual.
