I am want to order about 6 roses for a friend in Des Moines where the winters can be below 0 degrees F for weeks at a time. How winter hardy are the J Ben William's creations? How about Peggy Rockfeller, Ebby and the other JBW roses carried by Eurodesert roses?

They should do fine since there were tested in Canada in Zone 5.

Hello there,

I'm trying to get in touch with Mr. Benjamin Williams.  My name is Peter Kukielski and I'm the Curator of the Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden and I understand Mr. Williams is the hybridizer of this rose.  It would be great to talk with him about it.


Peter Kukielski

Curator of the Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden and Rose Collections,  The New York Botanical Garden, 718-817-8189.

I have an e-mail address you can use, but would prefer not to post it publicly.  Perhaps you could give me your e-mail and I'll send it to you privately.

We are glad HelpMeFind could be assistance here - possibly you could return the favor and help us out (and yourself) by providing a list of the roses growing in your garden. We are attempting to catalog the roses (as well as clematis and peonies) found in public gardens around the world. If you can help us please contact us at support @ for details. We look forward to hearing from you.

Dear Sir/Madam,

My company would like to seek and purchase the naming rights for two roses, preferably both red, along with a number of young plants and seeds. We would like to complete this by June.

I would be grateful if you could revert back to me on whether this will be possible and how such an arrangement could work.

Kind regards and waiting for your earliest respond.
