Curious: how many were grafted vs. own root? I lost here where I am, Electron (grafted) and Hot Cocoa (own root) survived!

Andrea - I too am happy that so many of them did survive. Looking at the list, you have some good ones, I like your taste. I've had Color Magic and I love the rose, but it only made it through one winter, and I've read that is characteristic of that variety. Please keep sharing your beautiful rose pictures, when you find the time. I know you're a busy mom.

I lost almost all of my Vintage Garden roses I purchased last year and were stored in my garage. Never before was my garage so cold that water bottles froze solid. WAs always a safe way to protect new roses until this past winter.
