In the 1960's, the author grew 500 roses in his own garden, plus another 5,000 in the municipal rose garden he started and planted in Muncie, Indiana.
A couple of years ago, Brantley decided to try importing roses from abroad and in this article he discusses the varieties he chose and what happened to them.
Among the roses Brantley ordered were almost all of Michel Adam's roses -- 32 varieties in all. This article is an excellent source of information about them. In fact, Brantley was the first grower of Adam's roses in America.
