Kim, how delighted it is to see you here! I love your writing style..and your deep personal dedication to growing roses. After the back and forth about root stock, this article made the logical apparent..that these examples of found roses are on their own roots..duh! Taking cuttings is a waiting game, but worthwhile.
When we see your roses listed?
:) Rose

Thank you, Rose! I'm glad you enjoyed the article. There are things in the works. Heirloom has had several of my roses for some time as has RVR. There are more which should appear next season.

Kim, I love what you wrote - it helps me in understanding roses. Many thanks. I appreciate your breeding super-hardy roses like Lauren, it's on my plant- list for next year. I love its color. The rugosas are hardy for cold climate, but they look like non-blooming porcupines in alkaline clay soil - I was so happy that the rose park got rid of them. We definitely need fragrant roses that bloom well in alkaline clay, for zone 5 and below. Thank you for breeding them.

Yes, his articles are an absolute delight. I believe we have some more which he generously gave HMF permission to reprint but we've been remiss with our Ezine. So much to do just keeping HMF running day to day.

Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed it! I'm also glad you like Lauren. It's impossible for me to determine the cold hardiness of any rose, living where I live. It's exciting to hear how well they've done for you folks who live in much more severe climates than mine. Or, at least, more severe cold than here. Our heat can be quite severe. I hope Lauren pleases you as much in person as it has in print and photographs. I love the rose! Yes, Help Me Find has quite a few more of my earlier articles to print. I am excited for them to get up on the site! Thank you!

Lovely well written article. It informed me of the differences of the own root vs. the budded grafts. I had really no idea that the bud union below ground would be rooting on its own.
