  1. Hi Chris: You’ve got beautiful flowers! I so want to get ‘Buff Beauty’–have heard very good things about it, and would like to try it in my garden. I have ‘Jacques Cartier’ rose in bloom right now, as well as a huge ‘Cecile Bruner’ and a couple of hybrid teas, ‘Camelot’ and ‘Mr. Lincoln.’ Take care and have a great weekend!


    • Thanks for visiting. Buff Beauty is a wonderful rose. It tends to sprawl out, and needs plenty of room to grown. ‘Cecile Bruner’ is a favorite of mine as well as Mr. Lincoln.
