Café Ole: Received from Rogue Valley Roses on December 14, 2017 as a band. Very tall and upright with plenty of brown thorns. I hope I received the right rose!
Molineux: Received as a potted, defoliated, 1 gallon from Heirloom Roses. On “sale” for $36.00. Used my $37 gift card, and discovered that shipping would be about $15. Heirloom offers free shipping with a $50 purchase, so I added some liquid bone meal for $14.95 and qualified for free shipping. Rose ordered on 11/09/17. I requested shipping the week of 11/20. Molineux arrived Monday, 11/27. A week in the box from Oregon to CA! I guess Thanksgiving really threw the shipping off.
