  1. >Chris, your roses are lovely. Have you ever considered planting Noisette roses, first breed in the 1800s near Charleston, SC. It's a rose class at home in the South, and even does well here in the cool Pacific NW. My hands down favorite is Madame Alfred Carriere. After all, you can never have too many roses. 😉
