Could You Have Resisted? Plus quiz

martinca_gwAugust 10, 2014

Part one: You walk into Home Depot with no interest or intention on buying another rose. Then you are confronted with this. Just for learning purposes, you read the label (which appears to match the rose) that extols its disease free, ever- blooming virtues....something you think you remember reading on here. Would you resist?
Part two: Name this rose ! (hint: floribunda)
FYI: it's loaded with buds unseen on photo
BTW: this two-parter is to test your knowledge
AND your honesty :)

You did not complete the quiz, miss hippy. Yes or no answer will suffice.

lol I did resist, so no I did not buy, but I let a friend know who wants that rose to check her HD. It does look really nice though and the price is right too.

Looks like Easy Does it... Or Livin Easy
Livin Easy failed here due to blackspot. Did not like our strain of BS.
I'm trying Easy Does it next year again in a different location...

I loved the blooms on both those roses...

No, I would never resist anything that looked that lovely at Home Depot. Most of them look like crap there so that one would have definitely stood out and caught my eye and I'm sure would have ended up in my cart, lol! If it was bargain priced that would be even better and more incentive.

Since the other obvious ones are taken I'll go with Disneyland Rose.

No, I would not be able to resist if it were Livin Easy.

Ok! The men are the winners! Jim first, and ken : Easy Livin, it is. Well done!
And thanks to hoovb, on an older thread, I will not leave it in a pot, but transfer it to a spot where it may soar to six feet. ( hoov, really- truly?)
Glad to see my instinct won out! Thanks for playing!

Resist? They jump uninvited into my shopping cart!

They are going home with someone, might as well be me.
