What roses do you have coming this spring?
After all this talk of (lack of) self discipline in buying roses, it's time to hear what everybody's got on order, received, or still buying. Inquiring minds want to know the names!! My list is below. You will note I have mentioned which ones are replacements for those that died on me either last yr or beyond. Also reasons why I ordered new ones. (hey, I'm just trying to justify why I ordered them!) LOL
ANNE HENDERSON - replacement
ELFI VON DASSANOWSKY - love that name and the coloring
PHILATELIE - it's a stripey! and I missed out on it last yr
PAROLE (BUXOM BEAUTY) - replacement
DONA MARTIN - love the weird color
PACIFIC CELEBRATION - look at the pics on HMF and you'll know why I ordered it!
REMEMBERING MICHAEL - my husband's name is MIchael
SNUFFY - love the name and it looks good
IMPATIENT - replacement for one that died yrs ago
EYES ON ME (RASPBERRY KISS) - I'm liking the Hulthemias!
Palatine Roses (replacements they forgot to ship with the new order):
HARMONIE - got last yr to replace old dead one, but it was mismarked
MONTE CARLO COUNTRY CLUB - never broke dormancy.. loved the color (and I drive a Monte Carlo!)
CRESCENDO - missed it the last two yrs & J&P had a free shipping deal in Dec on one plant! (couldn't pass that up!)
Rogue Valley Roses:
BRITE BLUE - liked the looks, besides, had to make it worth ordering
COLOR MAGIC - replacement
Breck's (on their 1/2 price sale in Oct):
NEIL DIAMOND - new one, early release and it's a stripey! Had to have it
SUGAR MOON - had to order something more to make it worth the shipping! (needed a white to replace CRYSTALLINE)
ANNIE'S PROMISE - new rose with near-oddball coloring!
CORETTA SCOTT KING - almost ordered last yr, love the colors!
FIRED UP - it's a stripey!! and it was the last one!
TWILIGHT ZONE - replacement

JULIO IGLESIAS - replacement.. couldn't find it last yr
EYECONIC MELON LEMONADE - like I said, I'm liking these Hulthemias!
BARBRA STREISAND - replacement
EVELYN MAE - almost ordered last yr, love the pics on HMF
LITTLE DARLING - replacement
MOJAVE - still trying to get the correct rose (uh oh, is that an oxymoron... Hortico.. )
SCARLET RIPPLES - replacement
NEW ZEALAND to replace dead one
CHOOSE LIFE looks interesting, but do I need it? Keep hoping it will sell out before I decide to hit the submit button some evening (when I'm buzzed on my gin & tonic)
Almost ordered a few from Heirloom but thankfully they sold out of all of them before I could make myself place the order.
Hmmm... I could've sworn there was more than this. Oh well, that's a good thing if there aren't any more!!! I think I did pretty good this yr!
So come on everybody... fess up! What do you have coming this season??
