Actually need two roses for a zone 7b Virginia organic rose garden. Rose bed measures 4x12 with an additional 18" lavender border. Have pretty much made up my mind on CLEMENTINA CARBONIERI for the front of the bed but need two other roses. Ideal growth habit is 4x4 but taller is fine provided it will accept some pruning. Anything in the apricot/coral/orange color range. Would prefer cupped or loosely quartered flower form. Think an apricot Duchesse de Brabant. MUST BE FRAGRANT.
A few cultivars that I'm considering:
COMTESSE RIZA DU PARC
MLLE. FRANZISKA KRUGER
WILLIAM R. SMITH
