Heirloom has just introduced John's Raspberry Stripe. It's a lovely rose which has remained healthy here on the Central California Coast. I'm delighted to see this introduction.

Hi Kim! I'm sure John would have been thrilled to have Raspberry Stripe introduced by Heirloom Nurseries. I have two thriving bushes of it in our yard and it is totally trouble-free.
Hello to all of John's good friends on the Rose Hybridizers Association Forum! He had me look up the forum every day to read what had been posted. It meant a lot to him.

That's wonderful that they are introducing it. He created a number of beautiful roses and was very generous in sharing tons of OP seeds.
