Hi rob,

Just thought I'll draw your attention to the fact that there are two roses registered as " My Hero"?
You expressed an interest in improving the winter hardiness of your hybrids.
One bred by Tom Carruth which is a Floribunda developed in 2007.
The other one bred by Ping Lim and Jerry F. Twomey in 1993

I don't think Mr. Carruth's Floribunda would do anything for your winter hardiness.

Chuck,

Thank you. I should have been more specific. I'm definitely looking for the Ping/Twomey 'My Hero'.

Rob,
I have the Ping/Twomey 'My Hero' and could send you cuttings from it if you'd like.

Thought I would try again as to a source for My Hero in the US or ships to the US.
