A Garden Classic

We all know that the Dr. Huey rose is often used as a rootstock for its reliability and disease resistance, but how many people plant it just to grow for flowers?

Here is my 'Dr. Huey' rose dating back to around 1962, around when the house was built.

Here is another 'Dr. Huey' that I started from a cutting last year:

The old-growth rose from 1962 is planted beside the back of the house, and this one is planted on the side. As they grow, they will eventually "corner" the house. I may plant another one along the side of the house this year.

Anyone else grow any classic or heirloom roses?
