They're all absolutely gorgeous, Amy! I'm currently debating whether to mail order a David Austin rose. If I do, I think I'll try growing it in a large pot as I think it's the only way to manage its water needs.

Derek - Thank you so much :)

Kris - I know DA recommends particular varieties for container growing. Hope it works well for you as they're such beautiful plants!

Roses in pots works for me, but mine are just vanilla Icebergs.

Diana - Icebergs are fabulous roses... I've begun to look at the classic hybrid teas and floribundas as just that: classic, and with good reason!
