Off to a great start!Review by JB
I got my Apothecary's Rose into the ground during the third week of last September. That was cutting it a little close, as we have frosts late and early (Zone 6a, comparatively high altitude). This spring the little rose woke right up and got to work, and there are now three lovely blooms on it. The plant looks healthy and is certainly growing fast. Shipping was fast and very professional. I'm delighted all round, and recommend this elegant old rose, and this wonderful company. (Posted on 6/8/2017)
