So far -- so good.

I live in zone 5 -- Detroit area. About a year ago [ in April ] I bot 3 Linda Campbell; roses from Heirloom roses. They were healthy, and I planted them right away. The first year was devoted to root development -- so I did not get much in the way of blooms. They survived the winter OK, and, in early April, I pruned each of them back to 3-4 major stems, about 10 inches tall. This will encourage them to branch out and form a full form plant. So far, on May 2 of this year, they are starting to produce multiple new branches just below the pruning cuts. The new growth is green and healthy looking. It looks like they are healthy and doing well.

I expect many blooms from them this second year. And next year, I expect to enjoy the many blooms of a mature Linda Campbell.

These plants replaced roses of the same variety that had been blooming for me for many years. Sadly, they died. I was having trouble finding a place to buy new plants to replace them. Thank you Heirloom Roses for coming to the rescue.

For reference, these plants are planted about 2 - 2.5 feet from the curb of a road that is salted in the winter. That is the same area the original plants were planted. Linda Campbell is a salt tolerant rose variety, and the original plants lasted many years in that salty environment.

I have planted a dozen Linda Campbells in a difficult-to-grow location. Regular 20-30mph winds and flooded occasionally with saltwater but somehow they have managed to thrive each year looking better and better with more flowers.

Ralph Moore's Opus

I recently receive my Linda Cambell in excellent shape. I worked for Ralph Moore, who held the patent on this rose, for a summer watering greenhouses in his nursery/laboratory. There was a Linda Cambell on Property with 3' diameter canes which arched up and into a cherry tree about third feet. This is a spectacular example of the dedication which made Ralph Moore the "Father of the Modern Miniature Rose". Thank you Heirloom Roses for doing part to preserve the legacy of an amazing botanist!

I have grown Linda Campbell Rose for over 20 years. It is a gorgeous rose that blooms in clusters several times a year. as long as you deadhead the rose once each cluster blooms, new clusters will form throughout the summer and into the fall. One cluster makes a perfect bouquet.

A Wonderful, Hardy Rose

At one time in my life, I went nuts over roses and planted all kinds that people said were hardy. The ones I have left after years are William Baffin--a Canadian Explorer series rose, Rosa canina--a species rose also known as The Dog Rose, and Linda Campbell. I live in a harsh winter area, it can be -15 Fº and very windy and these roses stand and take it. And that's without covering them up at all.

Linda Campbell is a beautiful ruby red rose. Shows well from the road and blooms several times over the summer in large clusters. In an area like this, it's amazing! If you are looking for a winter hardy red rose, this is one you should try out. It doesn't have fragrance, but with that as its only fault, it's worth it. I've had this rose for probably ten years, and it gets better every year. I now have several more planted just to increase the show.

I've read that this is a cross between a Rugosa and a miniature rose. Sure wish people would keep making crosses like this for "the rest of us" that live in areas where roses are tough to grow.
