I called DAR and ordered 2 Evelyn on Monday. I asked when they could get them out to me, and they said they would ship them Tuesday. Today is Friday and I have in my possession two excellent, huge grafted roses. I dug my holes 22 inches deep and the roses are 21 inches long, including canes, which will get buried to the tip. I am leaving the white canes on because they will turn green as the go and give the rose a head start. I put them to soak in a tub, covered it with plastic, put it in shade and tried to keep my mind off of planting until tomorrow.
I LOVE SPRING and getting such great roses. I don't mind paying the price for such great, huge roses.
