    Still really want pink peace everytime that I see yours Merlena What a color ! I cried over Young Lycidis because the blooms were so gorgeous and smelled so wonderful but it took over and I just couldn't keep up with it. Good luck to those growing it. The blooms rrally are special But removing it gave me room for Azaleas Forever Rose and Marc Chigall

    Claire, so nice to see the snowdrops! I love watching the seasons change, but we haven’t gotten anywhere close to seeing bulbs sprouting yet. Deanna, it is the dog, not necessarily my own motivation that gets me out into the woods and fields regardless of the weather. But once I am out there I really enjoy it. Most days we do three walks as he is fairly high energy, so we are out for more than an hour most days. He has learned to pause when my cell phone camera or my pruners are in use. I don’t usually have my real camera with me. Today our breaks will be quite short with temperatures in the single digits into the teens and 40 mph winds. The dog is too small to retain much body heat, even with a jacket when the wind chills are like this, and in the woods where we typically go when it is breezy, it will be too dangerous with such strong winds bringing down branches.

    Ann - for sure! I'll let you know what I think about Bolero!! I won't get any blooms on any roses until the first or 2nd week of July.


    Patrick - your Fair Bianca really makes a gorgeous bush!!! She really does do well for you!


    Matt - man oh man....your JFK is fabulous!!! Those blooms!!!

    Ann, so funny story but since I am about to move in a couple months, I actually have my honeymoon in a pot and overwintered in the ground. It is a climber, but I kept it trimmed to a manageable size for moving since purchasing it in the fall (I knew we‘d be moving out of state early this summer after my husband completes post-graduate education in May) It certainly hasn’t been an ideal situation for a climbing rose, but you gotta do what you gotta do, and honeymoon doesn’t seem to have minded much at all :)

    For the brief time I’ve had her so far, she blooms frequently in large flushes with a few blooms scattered in between. I had a wonderful fall flush especially considering the unfavorable living conditions for a climber haha! Pleasant, mild-moderate fragrance, blooms are creamy white in heat, but take on pale pink/blush tones when the nights get cool. Seems to have healthy, ambitious growth vigor considering how I had to keep cutting it back to keep it from becoming a monster in the pot! (It pained me every time-so looking forward to planting it in the ground at letting her flourish!)

    Ann~ your White Eden is stunning! I am so glad I have this rose coming. I love white roses, they might be my favorite color.

    My favorite whites that I have grown are Bolero and Winchester Cathedral. I don’t have room for Winchester Cathedral now, but do have a couple Boleros, love they are small bushes. Another white I love is Sally Holmes.


    I think if I were to order one more white rose it would be Desdemona. I have never seen it in person but I Ike the pictures of it and the fact that it might do well in shadier gardens.

    I am swooning for Ann’s White Eden though!

    Now I want to add that climber haha! I forgot my mom has/had a Honeymoon with beautiful flowers similar to yours. she sent me a picture of them in a vase a couple years ago. For some reason I don't think she has it anymore but I need to ask her why she got rid of it.

    Yours looks like perfection to me.

    French Lace was a dud for me.

    I think I had 3 and none of them actually made it to a second growing season.

    Kitty, you're going to make me try it again haha


    Any time I say something 'bad' about any flowering plant, I'm hopeful everyone remembers I am trying most of them in very limited sun, so less than ideal results are to be expected.


    I do have a felicite et perpetue coming next week, but I'm going to pot that one and leave it in full sun until the fall.

    Sun coast,

    Keywest Rock has to be my favorite today! It is stunning! Is it always pink & white?

    It looks like a photo I have of E Veyrat Hermanos rose which I ordered. But EVH changes colors to all pink sometimes. I like the pink-white lacy fine ruffles!



    Lion’s Fairy Tale has beautiful abundant creamy white 26-40 petals fragrant roses!


    JC, I understand and it’s so wonderful that you have roses on the porch that have full sun in pots on the porch. It is a challenge finding full sun at times. For me, I would do anything for more sun! Just it’s warmth in NY is so needed. I don’t want to live like a polar bear in winter anymore! Fortunately, we have sun starting tomorrow and warm 59-60 F this week! Yea!!!!!!!

  • Kitty6aNY

    RoseCanadian,

    Since all Yves Piaget are zone 6, I realize they need warmth and TLC to make it where you and I live. In the ground near the warm side of the home may be best to plant them. Since you put them inside during winter, I am not sure why they didn’t make it. But I think the zone 6 roses are more delicate. Do you have other zone 6 roses that flourish?



  • rosecanadian

    Suncoast - Wow!! It reminds me of Austin's Janet. Gobsmacking gorgeous!!!!

    Kitty - oooh...you're right...they have a very similar look! Spectacular!! And congratulations on the warm weather coming your way!!! Yay!!

    As to Yves Piaget - one year, my husband didn't get around to getting the roses in before a big snowstorm hit...and the other time...my daughter accidently left the garage door open on a really, really cold day. But even beside that....Yves hated me. LOL And yeah, I can overwinter any zone of rose that goes up to zone 6. I haven't tried any that are more tender than that.

  • Kitty6aNY
    4 months ago

    Rosecanadia, so sorry Yves P didn’t like you... but I am so glad to hear you can grow any rose up to a zone 6. You have ideally worked out growing 60 roses in pots and it is an amazing project you have to transport them all to the garage each winter. I would love to see photos of your potted roses.


    I think we all need green houses so we can grow ideally anything we want. There is the historic , The Sonnenburg Mansion,” in Canadagua , NY and the original owner , Mrs. Thompson, had many green houses where she grew tons trees, orchids, and exotic flowers. Now that’s ideal! She had a Japanese Garden, a rose garden w/ 5,000 roses and other gardens. Now I wouldn’t have minded living there and having her gardens and green houses. What a dream lifestyle!!.

    Hi, RoseCanadia,

    Lovely, how you have your pots on cement markers inbetween grass! Love to see them closer up? Favorite ones?

    Maybe you could post your pot photos on my “Rosarians, what makes your gsrden unique,” thread? Your gardens is truly unique and it works! I am so intrigued how you grow all these different zone roses in your 3b zone and 60 in pots. Amazing! They wrote a song about you and your roses by Bruno Mars, “You are so amazing... just the way you are...”

    Your gsrden is amazing-just the way it is! And your husband-he is amazing , too! How kind of him... how lovely! Congrats on him working on his PhD. So happy for you both!

    Thanks everyone! Yeah, that was my husband's idea to put the pavers in. I have zero design skills for gardening. I'll let him know you appreciate his work. :) :)

    Kitty - I'll let you know my favorite roses in the Seasonal Thread conversation next time I'm there. I'm going white screen blind, so I won't do it now.. LOL You are so sweet!!! I love that Bruno Mars song!!

    Oursteelers - I have a ton of pictures of Chartreuse de Parme that all look the same...because the blooms last for such a very long time. :) :) I'm excited to see yours when it flowers!!

    Kristine - nope...I never change the soil...except when I don't like a rose. My Night Owl was in the same soil for over 10 years. But...our season is short. It finally needs to be repotted, because the roots must have filled the pot and the bush was only about 2 feet tall last summer...still had lots of flowers. But, I'm not going to do a root prune/soil refresh, because there's no fragrance...and it's time to try something new.

    Thank you! I look forward to seeing photos of your roses and streptocarpus! I was thinking about you today... wondering how you keep 30 streps in the house... how do you find room? But, oh, the fun! What a unique and beautiful garden you have. I love the velvet leaves of Arican Violets and love hearing you have 30 streps and 60 roses... what a joy! My 2 favorite flowers ever!!! Truly keeps you busy!

    You have me hooked! I miss African Violets and now I will have a few, thanks to you!



    I hope my potted Wisteria, roses, mints, and few plants grow well in pots this year. Good potting soil and they seem to do fine. I will put them all in the ground for winter or remove from pots some and plants in ground.

    I hope your plants grow better in pots. What do you grow in pots?

  • rosecanadian

    Kristine - I wouldn't know. LOL I'm so lucky that my husband does all of that. If he weren't here...I guess I couldn't do it. Maybe I'd hook a rope around the rose in the pot and tie that to a huge tree...then I'd hook the another rope around the rose and tie it to my car and vrrrroooom!!! LOL The neighbors would get their chairs out....pretty entertaining!! LOL

    It’s a sunny morning today. It’s supposed to be 58 degrees. White roses sure perk up my day!

    I love Pope John Paul which is on my wish list.

    I love Winchester Cathedral and I am hoping my rose seed of it will grow into this gorgeous rose...well or like it. I love it being a very prolific blooming bush!

    I in pots I have one ofy Munsteads, one of my Darcy Bussel, Purple Prince, rescued from the water bog, and several mini and mini flora.

    The rose that probably needs to come out is Munstead

    Maybe next year.

    I also have 4 hydrangeas in pots and 3 are getting changed out this yest for sure. I was hoping for this weekend but it is calling for cold and wet weather so we eill see. If it isnt pouring I will go for it.

    Today is absolutely glorious out.

    I hope planting Munstead works out. Will you repot or put it in the ground? I am so excited about my Munstead growing this spring! It’s wine color is captivating. It looks like an antique rose, very quaint and can’t wait to see it in a bouquet w/cream roses! Let me know where you decide to grow your Munstead, now one of my favorites!!!

    I just added a bunny pot yesterday. I will fill it with tulips or daffodils. More on Easter ideas later

    Kristine,

    2 Munstead Woods, how glorious! So much beauty! It’s the best rose ever! My son loves red and Mubsteads’ deep wine color is going to thrill him!!!!! Let me know where you plant it?

    Thank you. Lovely Winchester Cathedral. We will see what my seeds yield.

    Aaron, Madison, Vapor,

    The teeny weeny flowers sound gorgeous! I love ‘em too. Esp Miniature roses! But I only have a few miniatures on this cold upstate NY property because the rest died-didnt like my winters. I am learning to be careful and hoping what I have left will grow if kept warm. 2 new mini roses were buried in mounds of mulch & snow this year-they look good! !

    Aaron, Let me know how your chamomile grows? I am going to put some on my hillside near roses as ground cover along with pink thyme on certain sections. Where are you going to put your chamomile?

    Maybe we should continue our seed planting discussions on the Spring thread? I feel I am hyjacking Sara’s White Rose THREAD..😊


    Sata, Thank you for your White Rose Thread! I love the world of white roses and it has opened up for me a whole new appreciation for different varieties of white/cream roses!
