Lots of Pictures

ArbutusOmnedo 10/24July 14, 2014

Hey everyone!

I haven't posted any pictures in some time, so I figured I'd put some up here. Most are newer, potted up bands, or first season bare roots, but there are lots of pretty blooms to share.

Pam's Choice

Treasure Trail (The blooms were blown by the time I got a chance to take some photos, but the mossing is worth seeing)

Reine des Violettes

Hot pink as opposed to mauve.

Boule de Neige


Distant Drums

Rosette Delizy

Lady of Shallot

Lady Hillingdon

Pride of Oakland


Charlotte (Acquired from RU this year as a remembrance rose for my grandmother, Charlotte)

Francis Meilland

George Burns

Tea Clipper

Dark Night

About Face (This rose has been excellent despite what the foliage in this picture looks like)

Marie Pavie

The Alnwick Rose

Dragon's Blood

Crocus Rose


Orchard's Pride (HT my mom has as a lovely standard that rarely gets mention here)

Chicago Peace

What I suspect is General Gallieni (Received as Gilbert Nabonnand)

Madame Berkeley (RU Summer Sale)


The shrub after 6 months in the ground. Planted upon arrival as a band.

Bishop's Castle

Souvenir d'Elise Vardon (RU Summer Sale)

Lyda Rose (RU Summer Sale)

Excellenz von Schubert

Belinda's Dream

Sophie's Perpetual

Koko Loko

And a few other photos:

My 8-9 month old cat Buttercup visiting my parents' backyard.

Lovely little blooms on Fuchsia thymifolia

I enjoy this variegated Silene quite a bit.

And a Begonia maculata 'Wightii'

So many beautiful roses--it's impossible to pick which ones I like best! Too many! LOL

I am decidedly jealous of your Boule de Neige, however. I ordered one for this spring--from Hortico. At the last minute they told me they couldn't fill the order. I think they must have sent their last order to you! It is soooooo lovely--why didn't I get it?

Orchard's Pride--unusual but very appealing. And I always like Dark Night--but so many of the others also, like I said.

Boule de Nege, Chicago Peace, Rosetted de Lizy and your cute kitty Buttercup all stole my heart. Thank you so much for sharing! it;s always a pleasure to see how roses grow in different parts of the country. You have inspired me to share my Texas roses! Going to work on it now.

A beautiful assemblage of roses and other beauties, including little Buttercup. My favorites are Pam's Choice, Pride of Oakland, Sophie's Perpetual,Tea Clipper, Francis Meilland and The Alnwick Rose, although they're all very good choices. Thanks so much for sharing these beautiful pictures.

Thanks for the kind words everyone!

Haha, I promise you I didn't order mine from Hortico, Kate! That's too bad your order couldn't be fulfilled, but whenever you do receive a Boule de Neige, you will be verrrry happy. I absolutely love white roses and only Madame Hardy and Blanchefleur make my heart race faster than BdN.

It might be fun to see everyone's pets in a thread. Buttercup can't be the only kitty prowling around forum member's roses.

You're to blame Jay, you made me start my 2015 order list. I have to have Sophies Perpetual! I couldn't even continue looking at your list until I searched it out on Help Me Find, and now I have to have her!
Great pictures a few I hadn't seen before, so thanks for taking the time to post!

How do you post so many pictures at once? It would be very nice to be able to do that.

Your photos are great and what a nice selection of roses! I used to have that silene but lost it - you make me sorry that it's gone!

Thanks Anita! The Silene is 'Druett's Variety.' I believe an uniflora.

As far as posting so many photos, if you upload your photos to an image hosting website like photobucket, you can get the html embed code for a picture and then post as many of those on an individual post as you would like. As you copy and paste the html codes in your post here they will appear as long chains of indecipherable numbers and letters, but once you hit "preview message," you should then see how the post will appear with actual pictures. I hope this helps!

Really nice. I like how you have modern roses mixed with OGR's.

Pam's Choice is subtly striking. Nice closeup.
