Hello! I live in Boise and bought a mid-century house that once belonged to a rose gardener. As I've been clearing out the yard, I've found many rose tags. I've been researching the roses and hope to be able to find and plant some of them but keep coming up short. I suppose these blue-ribbon roses from the 60's and 70's have sadly gone out of fashion. I see that you're close by and you have the Lemon Spice rose growing. Would I be able to come see it and/or get a cutting from it?

The other varieties I'm on the hunt for are Strawberry Blonde, Typhoo Tea, Memoriam, Bahia, Red Chief, and Phoenix. I think it would be lovely to be able to revive some of these roses that once grew on my property. Thanks!!

Most of the ones you say you are after are still in commerce in the US (I checked). Use the Search/Lookup menu at the left of the screen, and enter the rose name. ;)

I cannot find any of them to actually purchase. I've been looking for several years in some cases. I'm subscribed to "in stock alerts" on places that have offered them in the past, but unfortunately they never seem to come back in stock. I've also found one of them available in New Zealand, but when I emailed they don't ship. If you're seeing places that actually have them available to buy, I'd love that info. Thanks for the reply!

I tried looking up the page for Typhoo Tea, and clicking on the Buy From tab at the top right. Several US nurseries came up. (Don't try anything that's listed as an Archive, they're no longer active.)

Mia, I grow many of the roses you mentioned and would love to have you come by in June to visit my rose garden. I could help you get cuttings or get them sent to be budded onto rootstock for faster growth. Also, I can get you in touch with members of the Idaho Rose Society, who might help you with who lived in the house and once grew roses there. Contact me in June.

I am looking for a Rose called Emma. Would you happen to have any variations of a rose by this name?
Thank you in advance,

Mark, I have a HT Emma new this year as a maiden budded rose. I obtained it from Steve Singer from Wisconsin Roses. Contact him to see if he has any still available this season.
If not, he may have them available next season. Good luck.

If you still have Beryl Bach, could you possibly take cuttings and root them for me? I will pay for the rooted cuttings and for shipping. Thank you. Margaret

I am always happy to share roses that aren't commercially available, and I see that this really isn't. I love Beryl Bach. I'll give rooting it a try and see how it goes. Please nag me on this. Dianne
