I think the flower size at 4.75" may be overstated. The plants I've seen at the South Coast Botanical Gardens in Palos Verdes, Ca. have flowers of approximately 3"

One supplier ships to the UK, but international shipping is always a risk. There may be a minimum number of roses in an order and other limitations.

LADY ELSIE MAY is on sale at OSH for $9.99 as a small bush in a 1-gal container. It is blooming and has a rather 'flowing' growth pattern similar to BETTY PRIOR. I'm here in Silicon Valley, CALIF.

I have hese Lady Elsie May roses and Jacnepal roses. I was wondering what king of light these needed. Also, I live in in Buffalo, NY and the ground will freeze, what do I need to do to protect them?

I bought one of these roses (Lady Elsie Mae not May) at the beginning of last summer and never got around to planting it until the following spring - I live in Maryland and the poor rose sat in its thin plastic pot through snow and ice and freezing temperatures and it did just fine (would probably make a great container rose.) When I finally planted it, this rose just grew like crazy and has been blooming ever since. It gets a lot of sunlight (probably 8-10 hours a day.) My Lady Elsie Mae also seems very insect and disease resistant, even more so than my Knock Outs. I did see a lot of aphids on it in the spring but they didn't seem to do any visible damage.
