I love your roses and ordered 7 last year from For Love of Roses. I've purchased roses from them since 2013. I never got the roses and was given numerous excuses from Richard Anthony over several months why he couldn't ship them. Now I'm trying to get a refund. It now appears that For Love of Roses has gone belly up. He doesn't answer emails or phone calls, one number has been disconnected. The reason for this post is do you have any plans for making your roses availabe to any online rose venders?

Yes You are correct about richard. It cost me money doing business with him. I never received a penny from him for the sales. I am now working with K and M nursery in Mississippi. I sent Jim Mills cuttings in December. Jim is working hard to make them available in the fall of this year. There will be grafts on fortuniana and some own root. I am really sorry you got screwed on your order. Can I ask which ones you ordered. Hope You have a great day.
Take care

That absolutely stinks that he stiffed you. This thing with Richard Anthony is getting stranger and stranger. He seemed like a nice honest guy when I talked with him on the phone several times. Guess not.

The roses that I ordered were: Code of Honor, Heart of Fire, It's a Keeper, Love & Passion, Summer Splash, Swizzle, and Twist 'N Shout. I did manage to acquire Swirly Pop, Dreamsicle, and Eternal Hope on an earlier order. I love all three. There were a few more I was hoping to order this year. I have the link to K and M Nursery website. I hope they will be offered as own root since I grow all my roses in containers now.

Subject: HMF membership renewal
I mailed you a membership renewal check #8875 for $24 on December 4th but you are showing that my membership has expired. The check has not cleared. Did you receive the check?

This rose can be very frustrating. Its blooms are inconsistent, varying from spectacular to balled up messes.

This has been an incredibly frustrating rose to grow. The color and form have been very inconsistent ranging from some of the most beautiful blooms in my garden with great form to balled up faded blooms that never open properly. Sometimes I have both types on the bush at the same time.
