Mid-spring roses in my gardens (pic heavy)
As requested by GGG:
Rosa, Midas Touch
Rosa, New Day
(grown from a cutting off my first plant)
Starts out soft yellow and ages to a buttery white
Rosa, Betty Boop
Rosa, Chicago Peace
Rosa, Just Joey
Rosa, Tiffany (just beginning to open)
Rosa, Gartendirecktor Otto Linne
(2nd year - just beginning to bloom)
Small dark pink blooms in clusters - very fragrant.
Rosa, Centenaire de Lourdes
Large drooping blooms with a super fragrance.
Rosa, Joseph's Coat
Starts out orange, then turns yellow and then finishes bright pink. Smells divine. (climbing, but can be pruned into a shrub)
Rosa, Carnival (miniature)
This 16 yr old rose nearly died due to voles munching on its roots, so I potted it up last year and it recovered nicely. I will set it out in this new location soon.
Rosa, New Day
Rosa, Ispahan (myrrh fragrance - rambler)
(originally from Iran)
This is my favorite rose of all. Blooms once in Spring, but lasts for 4 wks. It has the strongest and most delicious fragrance of all roses.
Same rose bush from another side with peony and Spriea, Goldflame between them and Flowering Pink Almond which blooms very early in Spring.
Four ft. tall and loaded with large blooms this year. It is a beautiful rose. Likes afternoon filtered sun/part shade and protection from hot wind.
Rosa, Iceburg, close-up
Rosa, Belinda's Dream
Following week, same bloom:
This bloom lasted for nearly two weeks. The spots are from all the rain. Absolutely my favorite shrub rose. Fabulous fragrance.
Rosa Ballerina, close-up
Rosa, New Dawn
Planted in 1997 - mother plant of my others
Growing on an arbor and up onto the roof of our carport.
Rosa, Stars and Stripes (miniature)
Rosa Ballerina & Iceburg with Irises
Rosa, Red Blaze (cl)
First year after being cut severely back
Super fragrant-Once blooming
Rosa, Lavender Lace (miniature - silvery lavender blooms) with Rosa, Damask hugging it on the left and in the back.
Softer and different colors than the other Peace I have.
JP beetles chewed on it a little before I sprayed.
Rosa, Red Knockout
Another bloom on same peony - side view.
I have several of these. One has little dark pink specks.
I'll finish with a close-up of my favorite rose - Rosa, Ispahan.
These are most but not all of my roses and peonies.
Thank you for looking.
