When in bloom the Happy Chappy is colorful and a beautiful groundcover rose. Jackson Perkins is still offering it for direct purchase online. I'm a bit nervous to place an order if they are in bankrupt. Has anyone tried ordering direct?

In Seattle, WA, mine has been trained into a 4' tree/shrub using wooden stakes. It's grown quite well, though it takes quite a bit of work. Sadly, you can no longer get this rose, as J&P went bankrupt and no one has bought the plant, so if you find this, pick it up! It's stunning.

I bought about five of these on sale. A real steal. Anyway, more importantly, they are really pretty little roses. Great for borders. You don't have to do much of anything to them except water them and cut em back a bit from time to time. I heartily recommend them.

I also have the Jackson & Perkins tree variety of this rose..
It is in a container on my back patio. Makes for a very nice little addition to the patio furniture and livens it up back there.. Has done very well with a little rose food every month or so.. always blooming.
Just pruned it back a little a few days ago hoping I didn't over do it.
But I absolutely love this rose.. I plan on buying a few more.

I have the grafted tree form of Happy Chappy from J&P. Heavy spring blooms, followed by 2 to 3 slightly impressive waves of repeat blooms the rest of the year. I was expecting more frequent blooms. When in bloom, it's quite a sight. Have to remove the dead buds quite religiously, else most buds form hips. Overall happy, over wish it would bloom more often.
