Bought locally from Walter Andersens Nursery, in Poway, CA. Looks like it’s a grafted plant. Brandon planted it in a gopher cage in the new rose bed, (former Privet hedge) to the right of ‘Sweet Mademoiselle’. That one (SM) was also planted at the same time, but by Javier.

Café Ole: Received from Rogue Valley Roses on December 14, 2017 as a band. Very tall and upright with plenty of brown thorns. I hope I received the right rose!

Molineux: Received as a potted, defoliated, 1 gallon from Heirloom Roses. On “sale” for $36.00. Used my $37 gift card, and discovered that shipping would be about $15. Heirloom offers free shipping with a $50 purchase, so I added some liquid bone meal for $14.95 and qualified for free shipping. Rose ordered on 11/09/17. I requested shipping the week of 11/20. Molineux arrived Monday, 11/27. A week in the box from Oregon to CA! I guess Thanksgiving really threw the shipping off.
