Incredibly beautiful!

After losing a couple of Sterling Silver roses, I really babied my last one. It was worth it! She grew harty, thick stems and produced beautiful blooms! However, one day last fall, my husband backed up too far and completely decapitated the rose! I was heartbroken! So, hoping for a miracle, I cut off 16 stems, dipped them in hormone powder, and planted each in a small plastic pot. Every one of them sprouted leaves! Of those, 5 died, but the rest are doing very well, and a couple of them have even bloomed - after only 7 months! I've given three away and will gift other friends too, but I plan on keeping about three and I'll plant them in the fall. Meanwhile, after feeding the decapitated original Heirloom's Fish Fertilizer, she has thrown up a big sprout and will clearly live despite the tragedy. I highly recommend the Sterling Silver Rose! She's a winner!

Sterling Silver rose, beautiful.

My husband sent me these quite often before and after we married. They were dominant in my wedding bouquet. He has passed and I would like to get this rose in his memory for my garden. I had 2 of these as tree roses 30 years ago; but of course they are long gone. My favorite.

Timeless

My grandmother had a sterling silver so after my mother inherited hers, I decided to purchase my own. I bought my first sterling 6-8 yrs ago. Very sensitive bush. Thrived after the first year. It produced stunning lilac lavender light enough to almost look like a touch of silver (hence the name) colored roses. Fragrant and lasting. Magnificent in every way! I recently bought my second sterling, and hope it thrives as they are no longer available for purchase.

Beautiful Lavender

I was an inexperienced gardener when I grew this in Minnesota 50 years ago. It was beautiful every year. I buried it in the fall using the Minnesota Tip method and it did just fine on the south side of my home and next to my house. So beautiful.
