Comments About Home Run
"Without a doubt this rose should be on your team... very strong grower, shouts look at me, always in bloom. This rose is an All-star."
- John Pottschmidt, M.D., Cincinnati, OH
"I like the continuous bloom that we have been having all along, and not having blank spells in between long flushes."
- Paul Hjort, Former owner of Thomasville Roses, Thomasville, Georgia
"What a winner! Home Run® by far is the best performing shrub in my garden. The way this rose performs, it's more than a "home run" ... it's a "Grand Slam."
- John Mattia, Connecticut Rose Society
"Home Run® is a real star in my garden in Natchez, MS. Here blackspot runs rampant when weather is hot and humid. Because I'm observing plants, I don't spray at all. This past August when blackspot hit my garden very hard, Home Run was free from this disease. It has been in bloom continuously since early spring, when we created this garden. It's a great rose."
- Karen Dardick, Garden Writer & author of "Simply Roses"
"Home Run® is an absolutely wonderful landscape rose. It is winter hardy and has no disease problems in our garden. Home Run Blooms generously almost continuously throughout the season and has an appealing growth habit. I strongly recommend Home Run on it's merits as a fine rose, and in addition, as a suburb trouble free shrub...which can and will deserve it's place in virtually any garden."
- Anne o'Neill, Rose Curator, Brooklyn Botanical Garden, NY
"Here in hot and humid Alabama, Home Run has been a real star. We had bright and cheerful blooms for eight months and the foliage was lush and disease free without spray. What more can we ask of a rose?"
- Dr. Mike and Paula Rushing, Ragland, AL
"It's called Home Run® and in Hotlanta, it is a Grandslam! Taking off from the batters box with vigorous growth, heading toward first base with dark green foliage, rounding second with red blooms, and streaking toward third base exhibiting great disease resistance. This winner heads for home with a strong, clean finish."
- Connie Kneisel, Rose Curator, Fernbank Science Center, Atlanta, GA
