  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.

  2. Too bad the chart doesnt give zones of hardiness,prdferable Canada zones and the chart is so hard to read.Otherwise good info rarely found. Thanks

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!
