Queen Elizabeth and Romantica Bolero
Of the five rose bushes we bought last June, only one made in through the winter. I've spent the last few weeks slowly replacing the four dead ones. I found two Queen Elizabeth rose bushes at Home Depot for $8 a few weeks ago and have been looking everywhere for Romantica Bolero rose bushes to replace the final two. I remembered that there was a fancier nursery about half an hour away and was delighted to find that they had several in stock. Happily, they were blooming and laden with buds when I bought them, so we have a lot to look forward to in the coming weeks!
