Petals From the Past

I was lucky enough to visit Petals from the Past in March 2012 and bought a Peggy Martin there. I was really impressed by their selection of not only own-root heirloom roses, but also of great perennials. These folks really know their stuff.
Now that I’ve seen it, I plan to stop there every time I drive through the area.
Antique Rose Emporium
Brenham, Texas, and also San Antonio, Texas https://www.antiqueroseemporium.com/
Most of the roses you see in the blog came from here, or from a cutting from one of Kate Black’s roses that she got here. This establishment was founded by the original Texas rose rustler Mike Shoup, and I think my hero Liz Druitt used to work there. The first time I visited my sister in Austin, we made a pilgrimage to the Brenham display gardens and store.

The giant Awakening on my porch came from Heirloom Roses. They sell a lot of unusual and hard-to-find roses. Also they have a lot of miniatures and miniflora roses, which I’m wanting to start experimenting with, since I’m running out of space and can’t afford to buy the house next door and keep going.
