When I lived in Minnesota and started growing roses in the late 1990’s, there seemed to be a re-discovery of the nearly 100 roses hybridized in Iowa by Dr. Buck. I was fascinated by the stipling pattern in a few of his roses, but quickly learned that many of the Buck roses could not survive in Minnesota as they do in Iowa. Now that I am in a much warmer winter low temp climate in Western Washington, I have been adding Buck roses every chance I get. This year, ‘Prairie Lass’ arrived from Heirloom Roses in Oregon. I also have ‘Spanish Rhapsody’ and ‘Freckles’ but they are not in bloom.
