Hello all! I raised this rose for 6 yrs. We had a really cold winter one year, for Western Wash. and it froze. It did try to grow back, but never bloomed :( It was amazingly beautiful the years I had it and I am very passionate about this rose and in finding it again. I did receive a Mint Julep band through "Vintage Gardens", but it is not really growing or getting any blooms, therefore I am desperate to find another Mint Julep. If anyone has this Rose for sale or any contacts, I would be so grateful for any help anyone has to give! In advance, I thank you for your time :)
