Rose Hips from 1684 Willow Street

My wonderful ex-neighbor of fifteen years in Denver, Cherrie, e-mailed me to offer to pick a bunch of rose hips from my old Denver yard with the permission of the guy now renting there. He said "yes" and she picked me a BUNCH. Sure they are just open-pollinated, and sure, any seedlings are very apt to not like Florida since the parent roses thrive on neglect in Colorado. But I love to experiment, so why not? After all, this Tampa yard and my Denver yard both boasted thriving roses that experts said "can't live there". Just like Cherrie to do a favor for me out of the blue. John
