I use to have the Barbara Bush rose bush. I moved and I didn't
take it with me. That has been about 10 years ago.
Now I can't find anyone who sells it now. I have searched the internet and nothing comes up.
Does anyone know where I can find this rose bush?
If no one knows where to buy one maybe someone can tell me why it is not being sold now.
It is a beautiful rose in color and shape.

While this plant has beautiful flowers it is EXTREMELY prickly.
