|Such a beautiful apricot shade with ruffles around the edges|
|As the blooms fade, the color turns to a very pretty pink|
|The bush itself has a nice shape and even bloomed in this shady spot|
By the time I received them, it was November so I knew I had to heel them in since it was way to cold to really plant the roses. I soaked them overnight, dug a big hole and plopped them in. I didn't even snip the tags off of them. I think you're supposed to cover up more of the canes, but I can't dig very deep holes before I hit a tree root. Still seemed to work.

This weekend I dug them up and spread them out into holes of their own while they were sleeping. They look really healthy and are already budding. Can't wait for them to bloom. I planted 4 on each side of the front garden to act as bookends.
|Nice healthy roots just like always from Pickering|
|New holes await!|
|Everyone in their new home!|
Next weekend when I officially prune, I'll rake out all of the old leaves and mulch.
|See all the buds already?|
