  1. So, what does "vd" and "2" stand for?
    Thanks for publishing the list of Buck Roses. I have one and it is TOUGH.
    Very little black spot, blooms continuously, very ice sized blooms and gets very little care. A winner.

    1. "vd" stands for "very double". "2" stands for moderate blackspot.

Thank you for your interest in my blog. I like to meet friends via my blog, so I try to respond if you comment from a valid email address rather than the anonymous noresponse@blogger.com. And thanks again for reading!
