How can I contact this nursery to find retailers carrying their roses?

I am looking for information about the Mary Johnston rose. I found your name on Help Me Find as a source for this particular rose. My mother's maiden name is Mary Johnston and I would really like to find this rose. I grow roses here in Dallas and would like to add it to my collection if you can tell me where I can find it.

Thanks so much,

Barbara Catchings

I live in Spokane, WA, Zone 5. I recently bought and now planted 3 Golden Bouquet roses to hide the "legs" of three climbing roses. I've now discovered that the Golden Bouquet is hardy to Zone 6 and higher. Other then the obvious mislabeling and mismarketing of non-Zone 5 roses for this area (purchased at Fred Meyer), is there any way I can get these roses through my Zone 5 winter? I will of course mound with dirt, then pine needles and wrap in burlap-- anything else? Help!!

Susan this is a great process for what you need to do. I also using mounding technique and I use fallen leaves as my protectant but your pine needles should work the same. And then it is up to mother nature. I have a few zone 7 roses that I have managed to get through my zone 6 winter. If it snows on them and remans there that is great. It acts like an insulator. It is those freezing cold temps and winds that we have to worry about. And rememer if you do not get moisture thru the winter that they like an occasional drink when it is warm enough.

I live a little north of Spokane and the good news is; most zone 6 roses will do just fine for you. How deep did you plant them? I set my bud unions (the knoby part) 3-4" below the soil and then mound them with straw for the winter. Yellow roses are notoriously tender, so you may lose the canes to the ground in really cold years. The only way to know is to go through a winter and see.
Unfortunately even the nurseries in Spokane carry roses which won't winter well. I've taken to doing research before bringing them home.
Good luck with them
