In search of some roses

I'm interested in starting a few rose plants and I have no idea where I can find out about certain strains that appear to be ghosts on the internet. I've found that there is some people who have genetically engineered a blue rose and I'm interested in acquiring a blue rose plant engineered or not and I don't want to just dye white roses blue. Any information about roses that look like the ones from the film "V for Vendetta" is also appreciated. [more inside]

Shaded garden plot needs color!

It's July, I'm in central North Carolina (Zone 7 or 8 depending who you ask), and I have an unused, mostly shaded 3' x 6' dirt plot at the side of our front lawn that I'd love to put some color in to brighten the neighborhood. What can I plant there now that'll give me the most color through the fall? Annual or perennial, bonus points for drought-tolerant but that's not essential).

Need to replace old retaining wall.

I have a short retaining wall in front of my house. It is concrete, about three feet high. On top of that is a row of bushes. The concrete is cracking and falling apart every year, and the bushes are old and scraggly. I would like to fix this, but I don't know who does this kind of work. Should I call a landscaping place? Should I call a regular contractor? How do I fix this problem. I don't want to do it myself.

My First Yard! (tm)

After years of renting apartments, I have moved up in the world: I am now renting a house. Strangely, the house comes with small organic green things projecting from the ground. Having never been responsible for a lawn before, I don't really know what to do with it. I also have two, I don't know, shrubs (I think). One is low growing, thick, with branches that kind of double as rhizomes, and one might be a juniper. As you can see, I'm pretty clueless. What do I need to know/what must I do/what must I buy to take good care of my lawn and it's various planty inhabitants? [more inside]

Is poison ivy still poisonous in winter?

Is poison ivy less poisonous when it dies for the winter? I'm rather allergic and have gotten rashy several times over the spring and summer, either from preparing the garden or the dogs running through the ground cover and then rubbing up against me. I know where the ivy is, but need to know how to get it out of there without killing the desirable ground cover that it is growing in. [more inside]

How to tell if my rosebush has a chance at life

Is my rose bush dead? Last fall I didn't prune back my rose bushs. This spring 3 of them finally turned green after I pruned back some of the dead wood, but the last one (a climbing rose) is still seemingly dead sticks. Each one has successfully grown for years, never w/ much consistency in pruning, but now I have 2 feet of dead sticks on the remaining bush. How do I know if I should give up on it? Does it have a chance next year? I'm in Colorado in zone 5, for what it's worth.
