I've seen these roses in three-packs in local outlets (including
supermarkets!!) but I have to say that I am a sceptic re: the
no-maintenance claims. First of all, in my experience, there is absolutely
no such thing as a no-maintenance plant--and I like it that way. Second,
one of the important principles of organic growing is employ diversity
when possible as a means to reducing insect and disease problems. Third, I
am a psycho gardener--I could never be happy to plant lots and lots of
just one thing! :-O
