Lol. Once I was working overseas and dw hired some yard crew to de-weed the garden beds. They managed to pull several babies that I had inherited at some plant swaps thinking they were weeds becuase they are used to plain suburbian garden beds. Oh well, what can you do?

Thanks for the welcome. I added 5 roses this past season and am looking forward to adding alot more. We have 1 1/2 acres with lots of open room, that
I'm slowly converting to 'our slice of paradise'. Probably sounds like any other garden addict.

Gram,
Thanks for the welcome. I seen your lovely pic of your blaze roses. What bloomers! How many roses do you grow? I added Queen Elizabeth cl, Blaze cl, red knockout,
pink knockout, & Maria Stern (subzero rose). The only established rose is a pink climber that blooms once a year. Very lovely when in bloom, but sure would like some with longer or repeating bloom.
We live next door to my Mom and she has 17 acres, so sometimes I imagine what it would be like to garden on that much acerage! I think I'd need help. LOL!

I used to grow alot more then I have right now. The flood we had one time in our back yard before we took care of that situation, took out 3 new rose bushes I had just planted, and I never replaced them. However I have the Blaze roses, and my Weeping china dolls. I`ll put them in the gallery, be sure to take a look.

Rosequeen, I have avoided white roses due to the fact that they seem to lack fragrance - don't exactly know why, but although beautiful to look at, fragrance is a big thing for roses. Be interested, like you, to see if anyone else comes up with some recommendations.

Sea Foam 1964 3 x 6' Fragrant double white blooms, trailing habit

Found one for you, this is one of the "Earth Friendly" roses recommended by Texas A&M, meaning requires less water, disease resistant, etc. Might want to check this one out - do a little internet research on it.

Antique Rose Emporium in Brenham, TX would probably have this.
