As some others did, I got Graceland long ago--in fact, it was one of my first 3 roses. The other 2 passed on to the compost heap in the sky, but Graceland continues to do great, despite 2 moves to new homes. Churns out flowers like mad. A big favorite of ours. I don't know why it hasn't become a regular staple that's constantly available like Double Delight, etc.

Jackson and Perkins went through a ton of yellow HT/GR types, but only consistently sold Sunbright, a certain AARS winner, and Henry Fonda. Sunbright is one of the worth HTs I have ever seen, and Henry Fonda does not like cold climates.

They had Sun Goddess, which was actually nice. Nothing special, but very consistent. And Graceland, Shining Hour, etc. All nice. But they never kept the decent ones in stock, except:

Midas Touch, which does well in most places, but lacks any form.

All in all, J&P was very inconsistent, and didnt respect colder climates.

Bonnie, I have a graceland rose and would love to start one for you. It is a very hardy yellow rose with blooms all the time from spring to fall. Petals do not drop when flower is spent. I was also looking for one online and couldn't find one. Maybe I will start some seedlings and make them available to people. Carol Chorney PS I live in Kennewick, WA

I have been looking for another Graceland rose since 1994 when I bought 3 at a little hardware store in San Diego because of the name (another story for another time) . It turned out to be one of my favorite roses. The more I pruned it, the more flowers I got. I found they last longest of any rose once cut. I had moved them once in San diego when we relocated and when we moved up to the northwest two and a half years ago I couldn't bear to leave them behind knowing I may never find another one. I trimmed back two of them as well as I could (they were HUGE by now), packed their roots in wet sawdust, put them in a giant box, crossed my fingers and put them on the moving van. A week later they arrived and with the help of a good friend we planted them in thier new home. That was in mid January and by spring they were blooming their heads off! Unfortuately they didn't fair so well the next winter, it was so cold for so long it took it's toll. I'm sure I've lost one and the other one is struggling.
I have a strong sentimental attachment to the name as well as loving the rose itself and if you ever did start those seedlings I would be SO interested. I'm about to try myself out of desperation before mine expire completely. I have no idea how successful I might be but it can't hurt to try. I hate to lose it forever.

To Carolyn,

Do please tell us if you were able to indeed obtain a specimen of Graceland from the source you mentioned. I also have been looking for a specimen of this rose.
