I picked up a bare root climbed "Mint Julep" and wondered if anyone deserve to provide me a zone hardiness...i.e. not what the publications say, yet the farthest north you"ve had actually success through. I looked, and also it seems prefer this one might be a warmer liking one, although some civilization digital had planted it (through no comment on winterhardiness) in zone 5.





I"m sorry to inform you that "Mint Julep" is sort of a connoisseur"s rose -- ie, a climbed for folks who don"t mind lavishing extraplain amounts of treatment and consistent frustration for very bit return, reward, satisfactivity . . .

Perhaps it"s their gardeners that perform the lavishing, I do not recognize . . .

WOW!!! That"s about the most color-enhanced photo I"ve ever before beorganized -- anywhere!!! Better even than some of Wayside Gardens" pics! Also, I need to enhance you on standing your ground regarding Mint Julep . . . I"m another beholder whose eye tells me that Mint Julep is one incredibly, very YOU-glee rose!!!

It"s curious indeed that specific novelty roses persist in commerce: Roses favor Mint Julep, Julia"s Rose, Grey Pearl, Irish Creme, and (regardmuch less of protests to the contrary) Sterling Silver -- whether any type of of them is grafted or (hopelessly) own-root.

Unless one gets-off on somepoint approaching hortisocial masochism, I can"t imagine why perfectly great garden area is squandered on such dogs, or why great money is spent on them. Let"s confront it -- nobody grows them REALLY well in a garden setting.
