found roses at High Country Roses

Is anyone growing 'Hattie Burton' or 'Champaign Arches'?

Both look wonderful in the pix. Lack of rebloom does not concern me in a cold climate.

How big do they get? Do they need to be covered for winter?

RE: found roses at High Country Roses

I bought both these from High Country years ago. Hattie was given to a friend in a slightly warmer zone - 5, not 4, where she did much better. I was a bit shocked by how hot pink she was in person - not what I had in mind at all, LOL.

Champagne Arches (aka Nancy Parker) is a monster rose here in zone 4! Completely cane hardy, I have it growing over an arch and the canes reach about 10'. It does require some taming, however, as it puts out a LOT of new canes - and it will sucker several feet away. It's a thorny devil, but when it blooms, it just covers itself with those peachy double blossoms. Basically once blooming, in an odd year I may have a small handful of flowers late in the season.

Champaign Arches sounds like a good barrier rose. Is it tough enough to take a Western exposure?

Is Nancy Parker the corect name, or another study name?

I can't find 'Nancy Parker' in any rose reference book so it must be another study name.
