Varieties of Roses Still Available
This is the list of roses we have left from our sale. They are available free to public gardens, historic restorations which open to the public, parks and historic cemeteries. Contact us (see below) if interested in any of these varieties for these purposes. We do not deliver or ship, so you'll have to arrange to pick them up.

|'Little Buckaroo' L-2-18, L-2-21 Min Moore 1956.
Bright red with white center and pointed petals, Little Buckaroo was one of Ralph Moore’s early successes, and remains one of the best early miniature roses. Found as far away as Texas, this little fella is a real survivor.
