Fragrant Plum, Chicago Peace, Ebb Tide, Smooth Buttercup and quite a few others were new this season. When I started off I wanted own root roses, in other words roses grown from cuttings so that if they suckered, what came up would not be the understock, as with a grafted rose. Well ... apart from it being hard to get cuttings to strike, I find they don't thrive and gradually I am losing them, so if I say I had 160 roses, that's really a guess. I need to do another count. My garden is very big, I haven't even tackled the front yard with the idea of planting more out there yet.
