USDA Zone: 7a (0 to 5 F / -17.7 to -15.0 C)
My garden consists of about 3/4 of an acre near downtown Florence, Alabama. I started my garden in 1992 from a practically empty slate (nothing but a few fruit trees and dogwoods) and at this point I don't have much room for any more roses. I have around 100 varieties - hybrid musks, climbers, noisettes and old tea roses comprise the bulk of my collection. Like any garden, mine is contantly changing. I now have more shade and as a result, some of my roses have suffered from that. So I am therefore moving roses around quite a bit and discarding those that have declined.
In addition to roses, I have a large collection of hydrangeas, camellias and viburnums. I grow various trees, shrubs, perennials and native plants. Plants are a never-ending obsession for me!
