*Roses in italics are being added in the Spring of 2012.

I am marking some of the roses I grow with the designation of " Rev Recommends. "  These are roses that I recommend without reservation.  In my experience they are healthy, easy growers that when planted in good soil, sun, and enough water will make you look like a great gardener.  This does not mean that other roses I grow will be difficult.  Some will get added to the list with more experience and some may be a little more fussy but I think they are worth it.
