Kim, about the Austins in pots, you were right!
I will be moving Carding Mill, Eglantine and Young Lycidas to in ground beds. I have found 2 Kordes Fairy Tale roses to replace Carding Mill and Eglantine, but I need help in finding a replacement for Young Lycidas. HMF says it's deep pink, but mine has definite purplish tinges. In any case, , , any suggestions? I would dearly love a fragrant rose for my deck.
Kim, I do have one potted Austin that may hold it's place. It's Teasing Georgia. Much more compact. But the other three are reaching for the sky!!! They are less than a year and are already 4 feet above the top of the pot.
