I grow modern Hybrid Teas and prefer the exhibition style blooms for their sheer beauty. I do like fragrance, but realize that the type of roses I prefer usually preclude aroma, so when I get it I consider it a bonus. I think I will eventually branch out and include some of the exhibition Mini/Miniflora's again with the exhibition type bloom. I do show roses once per year at Clay County Rose Society show--I am a member--but that is as far as I will probably go actually exhibiting.

Hi Timbo,--I just noticed your posting about how many roses I grow in St. Joseph.
How did your roses do this year?
If you are ever in south St. Joe, stop by and you can see my garden and we can talk roses if you wish.
I am disabled and usually at home and love to have visitors to see my roses. Just give me a call before you come to town and we can set up a time to visit and talk roses. My # is in the book. I live just off of Hwy. 229 at the Lake Blvd. exit and turn left. I am the second house on the right-North-side of the road with all the roses!!
