To shovel-prune or not to shovel-prune...that is the question!

That time of the year again.

I'm contemplating next year's purchase, evaluating space available, and considering the performances of my current specimens.

I am debating taking out two next spring and replacing them. Milwaukee's Calatrava will most likely get yanked. Its gotten a couple second chances. It has a good scent, but I've been holding out hope for improvements in bloom, vigor, etc.

I'm also strongly considering taking out Hot Cocoa. Like the spring flush, but it looks super ratty this time of year and it is in the middle of my front porch garden area. It has other issues that have been bugging me lately too.

What roses are you looking over and considering giving the ol' heave-ho?
