I was wondering where you bought your Morden Blush. I saw one listed on the internet, but I prefer to buy plants in person. I never saw this rose before yesterday, but when I saw the picture of it I fell in love. I also see that this rose was bred in Canada, but I live in Texas, so am wondering how long you've had yours, and what growing zone you live in. I am in zone 7b and most of my roses seem to go dormant in August due to the heat. So waddaya think, will I kill it? Cheryl

Cheryl, I think that Morden Blush would probably not do well in your zone 7b. This is a Canadian rose that has been bred for harsh winters and does best in this kind of climate. Is there any body out there that has successfully grown this rose in southern climates??

I live in Dallas and have one. I bought it a month ago at rose-a-pa-looza sale at Walmart, believe it or not, for $5 in a container. It was in poor condition and had a lot of yellow leaves. I gave it some fish emulsion fertilizer and rainwater I saved in a No. 3 washtub to bring it back to life. It's still in its container and I have to water in the morning and evening due to Texas heat, but it is very healthy and I love its apricot-salmon blooms. So far so good!
