The second of the 'late'roses I am ordering from David Austin--I missed the shipping window with this order and will have to get them without the guarantee, but things suddenly brightened up for us and my hubby said, "Why don't you order yourself 2 more Austin roses?" How can I resist that?! We fell in love with the two we received earlier this year, and I'm not too worried, as we just had our last frost date on the 15th. These will be 2 of the most coddled roses ever.
