China Rose 'Cramoisi Superieur'

Mom and Dad's specimen

A photo I took at the Marie Shelby Botanic Gardens

I have never been able to root this tough lovely Old Rose that LOVES Florida after many years of trying, yet my non-rosarian Dad just gave me FIVE husky plants of it he rooted cuttings of from the plant I gave him and Mom years ago! Dad rooted them in a pot of soil in full sun, no greenhouse type cover like so many folks do. So I took cuttings from his plant to try that approach, though I am concerned the cuttings MAY have gotten too cold on the bottom shelf of my fridge. Enjoy! John
