Rose Gallery

Laurie_z3_MB(sw MB)June 22, 2006

Since there's a lot of rose growers here, I thought we could start our own rose gallery.

Sometimes it's nice to see a variety of pics of a rose at different stages of bloom. This way I know if I "need" to get a particular rose or not!lol

Here's John Davis just starting to open.

Fully open

A full bush shot

Marie Victorin with spider friend

The thing I don't like about Marie Victorin is that the blooms fully open too quickly, it seems like in minutes. And I don't find the open flowers to be very special.

DeMontarville just opening. I love the faded edges on this rose.

I still like DeMontarville when it's open.

It has loads of buds for only it's second year. I'm really liking this one.

Love is doing really well. It's going to have 4 flowers open at once.

This one's a little more open. Notice how red the new leaves are behind it.

Bonica has more buds than I can count. I'm sure it's in the 100 range.

Even when open, I still like the shape of Bonica.

Let's see what roses are blooming in your garden.

Laurie,
Good idea for a new thread. Your roses are beautiful - especially DeMontarville....and Love...and.....
Not sure if it's my monitor but Love seems to be pink/red - I really like that. Pretty sure that is a 'need' LOL

Wow, Sharon in my next life I want to come back as a bee and live in your rose garden!

Thanks, I did make the trellis for John Davis out of willow, but he's not doing a very good job of filling it. Actually there's two rose bushes in there. Oh well.

I was looking around this spring for Henry Hudson, but couldn't find him for a good price, but after seeing yours maybe I'll have to bite the bullet and drop $20 for him at a nursery ;^)

Are there any in your collection that you've been less than thrilled with? I suppose I'm on the hunt for those roses that hold their shape for a long time. So far Hawkeye Belle still holds the title of longest flower for me. I kept track last year of one flower and it held that perfect tea rose shape for a good 5 days(on the bush) before totally opening up. Love is also looking like a long keeper, but it's hardiness has yet to be proven, as last winter was pretty mild.

Keep the eye candy coming!

You know Laurie, I really havenÂt sat down and made close observations notes on the performance of the rose blooms, I guess I should someday, I have so many roses, that something is always blooming, so I really don't take notice. LOL.

I have though been taking notes on which ones are not doing so well such as the Pavement Series, they are so yellow, iron or other nutrient deficiency/ chlorosis? I donÂt know for sure what it is, IÂll give them another year, if they donÂt improve, there out of here ;)

ThatÂs good to hear about Hawkeye Belle!

Maybe that's the secret, just have enough roses around you that you just don't care how long they last because you have hundreds more coming!lol I only have about 20 roses, so they all have to pull their weight. And I think if I started digging another new bed, DH just may bury me in it!lol Just kidding........he wouldn't do it, but he'd be sure thinkin' it. ;^)

Margaret, Love is a pinky-red colour with white reverse. I really like it, but I don't know how well it'll do through a normal winter. It was in a pot all last summer and in the fall it was a bit of an after thought to plant it out by the shed, 'just in case' it made it through the winter. I was thrilled to see it was alive this spring.

Here's a picture of the whole bush. Two more buds to open on it.

Now I'm thinking that I should plant Love into an actual flowerbed. When is the best time to relocate a rose? After it's done blooming? Or late summer, fall?

My roses are finally starting to bloom. Not all but here are a few.

Quadra

Morden Blush

Not a great one but it is Carefree Beauty

Prairie Princess

Topaz

Sunrise Sunset.
This one is new for me this year. It is covered in buds. The picture does not do this one justice. It has a white eye that you cannot see really well.

Winnipeg Parks.
That's all. I'm still learning to play with my new camera.

Nice roses Shelley, glad to hear its stop raining for you, keep those photos coming! For some reason my Winnipeg Parks died???? Had it for like 3-4 years and we had such a warm mild winter, whats with that?

Laurie, I'd wait till around September to transplant your Love into the ground or right after it's finished blooming providing that your baby it everyday making sure its well watered. I don't know about you guys but July can be a pretty hot month, if your forecast is the same, she might not be able to take it.

I take back my comment on the Pavement series, wouldn't you know it, the leaves are starting to green up. It's that darn David Thompson's leaves that are so yellow that it's going to be yanked out if he doesn't smart up. Space is precious for something else ;)


David Thompson
Such beautiful fragrant blooms, but can you see the yellow leaves. Lois Holes rose book says that this variety is sensitive to alkaline soil, how true that statement is ;(


William Baffin
Photos donÂt do this rose any justice, its really gorgeous seen in person.

Great roses gals!! I've already posted several of mine in the weekly threads so I'll wait for some new ones to get going and then add to this gallery.

Sharon, I was wanting to ask you, does "Agnes" repeat? Also has anyone had good success with the Hybrid Perpetuals up north here? I'm sure someone has mentioned Reine des Violettes but I can't remember who.

Laurie, I love your Love! LOL

Shelley great pics, how exciting to have a new garden on our "tour"! :0)

Gillian, I have a Reine des Violettes. It is new this spring so I can't really make a comment on this one yet. I did have a bloom on it earlier and I remember that it smelled just like rose perfume.

I have a few more pictures of roses.


Rosarian Utersen
This one is a very full coral coloured climber. I'm finding that the flower petals like to wilt in the heat of the day. I'm not sure if it is because it is a new rose bush and doesn't have enough roots to draw moisture or if this is the way it will act. I have 2 of these little plants with a blue light clematis in the middle.

Two picture of Prairie Peace. The more yellow flower has been open for a couple of days.

Marie Victorin. I agree with you Laurie, once the flowers are open it is nothing special. But when budded, I love it.


A closer picture of Sunrise Sunset. Hopefully you will be able to see the colouring.
As you can see some of rose leaves are quite yellow. Probably chorosis and too much rain. I fertilized for the first time today with an alfafa tea mixture with iron, epsom salt and miracle grow. I'm hopping that this will help.

More different varieties to come in the future.

Love them guys! You are all enabling me! I already put 3 new roses in the rosebed this year, almost doubling my total! Now if I can just find that pretty yellow shrub a few people have around here-- huge, prolific, GLORIOUS! Anyway, how long does miss all american beauty bloom? I have tiny new buds (still fully closed green buds) on my new one and I'm gonna leave for 2 weeks! Oh well, at least the new mini is done and the new arctic fire isn't ready yet! My unknown is blooming again, but I packed the camera already! I'll post them later!

A rose gallery - what a good idea! Vrie, it might be a persian yellow too. I have a couple of big ones - I'll post a picture here. The flowers are a darker yellow than Harison's, and they never open to show the stamen - they keep a cupped form, and just dry up. If you see someone with a big yellow rose, talk to them. Mine suckers like crazy, and I usually have chunks I could give away. Too bad both the big yellows are once bloomers. Wouldn't it be something to have a bush like that that bloomed all summer?

Here are some of mine finally, I have new ones to bloom in a week or so too.

The many faces of Double Delight (thank god it's alive):


Garden Party - dang this is just such a good rose!

Montezuma - awesome size and loooong stems, finicky leaves, no smell. It was as close as you could get to orange at one time and it's a little outdated now.

Rosa Mundi (I must get more Gallicas)

Harison's Yellow - flowers

-and bush

Sunsprite - beautiful colour and smell, but it's totally here today gone tomorrow. Oh well.

John Davis - new this year - growing like crazy and a ton of buds coming! Yoi!

A bud of Sonia

Well I have others but I'll give someone else a turn...

Hope for Humanity

Old pink once bloomer. Anyone know what it is?


I'd like to know what this one is. It blooms in spring, then has occasional flowers. Buds are tinged pink. It's very sturdy, up to 8 feet tall, and the thorns are enormous - up to 1/2" wide and tall.

Yes, Gillian, Iceberg is new and I really like it. There's just something about a white rose that I love. According to Lois Hole's book it is supposed to be quite hardy, so I guess I'll find out for sure next spring. Btw, I love your pics of DD. Darn I wish I could have found it this spring! But there's always next year, right?

What kind of question is that, thatÂs like asking which one of your children do you love the most ;) LOL

They are both wonderful roses for us cold zoners but if I were to only to choose one, I'd pick Billy.

Whoooops *blush* I actually wanted to know if you liked Martin Frobisher or Henry Hudson better... LOL! Now you have to hurt even more feelings! Actually I want to know which gets bigger, faster, and blooms the most. I know that bad ol' Billy Baffin fits the bill but I want something paler.

Laurie, it is very useful to know which hybrid teas are "more" cold hardy. I wish there was more concise info about this. There is a lady who posts on the roses forum called Tenor Peggy who used to grow lots of HTs in Wisconsin before she moved to Florida, she is a good source of info. I found out after I already bought them that Garden Party and Double Delight are considered two of the best for cold zones. With adequate pampering of course.

I would say Billy and Marty both behave like theyÂre on Viagra ;) Both grow very fast and bloom repeatedly. If you like the light pinks, paler roses, than for sure go for Marty. Do you not have room for both, if not get rid of DH garage. LOL

I did grow tenders once upon a time, I think they were Queen Elizabeth, Peace and Mr Lincoln but of course they all died in given time. However, since they are now producing more and more hybrid TÂs by own-root, I just might try some yet again.

Yes, Laurie, Gil, Shelley and anyone else that grows tenders, it would be great if you can tell us what are the most hardiest tenders in your growing experience?

Laurie_z3_MB(sw MB)

Well Gillian, you'll have to be the ground breaker and test all of those tender roses in your garden and report back to us!lol

Actually, back before I knew anything about roses, I had a Queen Elizabeth that survived one winter without much protection, but it was planted on a windy corner and didn't make the next winter. But then too, I could have planted it with the bud union above ground! So that may be another one to try in the future. I have to say though, that I've pretty much stuck with the floribundas and grandifloras, as I think they're a bit hardier all around than the HT's.

Did I read somewhere that you picked up a Sexy Rexy? That'll be another nice one that hopefully will prove hardy.

Laurie, I used to have Queen E. too, winter didn't kill her but the blooming was sparse at best. So she got the shovel. Yes, I got a new Sexy Rexy this year, it's doing really well so far. It's had 2 single blooms and now has a huge bud cluster. Looks very similar to Queen E. but blooms more (for me, so far, anyway).

Sharon, I have mixed feelings about Hybrid Teas on their own roots. Without launching into an essay, I have the best success with HTs when I don't worry if they die back in winter, as long as they are vigorous and spring back like lightning in the spring. All the long term winners I have now fit this description. All the long term HT winners I have also happen to be grafted. Autumn Sunset own-root grew like crazy last summer but died over the winter. But I am 100% for own-roots on non-HTs.

Anyway, Sexy Rexy, Sunsprite, and Mr. Lincoln are new this year on their own roots, and only Sexy Rexy is really growing fast. I hope the other two have a chance to get established before winter. Mr. Lincoln is in a pot in case I have to bring him in, he was such a tiny twig when I got him. So I will have more material to analyze next spring.

Sharon of course I have room for all the Canadian Boys, I will make room! Now to figure out how to get rid of all these darned hedges, for once and for all...

Two of my newbies:

Sunsprite (in the 45 seconds between being a bud and being all over the yard) But really, I do love the colour!!

And Kordes' Perfecta... oh it's just so Hybrid Tea! People down South complain that this rose is almost impossible in hot climates with burnt petals and fungal diseases - I'm actually getting a little petal burning in this crazy hot weather, but the foliage is super healthy.

Morden Ruby I absolutely love the colouring on this one.


Frontenac This bush last year looked like this most of the year, covered in blooms.


Prairie Joy.


De Montarville I too just love this rose.


Yellow Submarine A new one for me this year. I hope it makes the winter.


Simon Fraser Even though it blooms and blooms, it is not a favorite again this year. The whole plant looks kind of unkept or wild.


The Hunter



A couple pictures of Prairie Star. I just love this rose.


My rose garedn. About half of my roses are in this bed.

More and more are starting to bloom. I absolutely love working in my rose bed now. The smell.....
I see some varieties that I want to try. Bonica, Rosa Mundi(almost bought it this year), and Polestar.


Cuthbert Grant. I love the colouring of this one. The flower petals don't last long though.


Hope for Humanity. Small, but still nice.


Morden Fireglow. My flowers never totally open. They always stay cupped.


Morden Cardinette. This one is a Beauty. Last year it was terrible for mildew, but not this year...yet.


Lambert Closse. This is one is probably the most fragrant Canadian rose.


Alexander Mackenzie. My 6 year olds favorite rose. Most likely because they have the same name.



Morden Sunrise. My flowers have a few more petals this year.


Peace. This is the one that made the winter for me. I now have it in a pot. I had around a dozen flowers last year. I am hoping for more this year.

I wish Winnipeg Parks would have more blooms than it does. It's going into it's seventh summer, and I don't think that I get much more than 15 flowers per year on it. This would be considered it's first flush.

Here's Scentimental.

The colouring on it reminds of a peppermint candy, and no two flowers are ever the same. I forgot to stick my nose in it to enjoy the fragrance, so I'll have to go do that now ;^)

Everyone's roses are just lovely, and the photography is fantabulous! I've fallen completely in love with De Montarville. I don't know anything about this one - is it a hardy rose?

I grow some of the same roses that you all do, so I thought I'd share a little different presentation. Another hobby I dabble in now and then is digital scrapbooking. I made two layouts showing some of my roses.

This first one was made using a kit by Roberta D'Achille of Scrapbook Elements. It's a scraplift of a layout she did, and I have her permission to scraplift (to copy) hers. I made the beaded wire word "Roses" myself, using some beads from the kit.

This next one was made from two kits by Bette Duganitz, also of Scrapbook Elements. It was so fun to do. The fimstrip I don't remember where I got, but it had the name Denise attached to it.

Digital scrapbookers are supposed to give credit to the designers of the kits that are used. So that's why I've mentioned these names. Thanks for looking!

Some of my bushes are putting on quite the show.



Adelaide Hoodless. One of my first roses. One thing that I don't like about this rose is that the branches get quite tall and have to be tied. But the blooms make up for it.



John Cabot. This was my very first rose bush.This is the 17th summer I've had this one. The trellis that I have is
8 ft tall. Thank goodness I took this picture earlier, because we had a wind storm today and it isn't so pretty right now.



John Davis. It is a bit on the small side this year. I put it in a different obelisk and damaged it when I removed the old one.

A new rose with the first bloom. Jacques Cartier. I was expecting it to be more pink. I guess we'll see what happens as the summer passes.

These were taken this morning. But they blow open really fast and slowly fade to almost white.

Royal Edward. Last year I fell in love with this little ground crawler. It hasn't been very productive this year.

OK that is not fair! I want so many things now! Looks like the kids will lose another section of lawn to mow LOL!

I do believe the harrison's yellow is the bush. Hmmm, where will it go next spring LOL.

I just came back from 2 weeks vacation and miss all american beauty is blooming prettily. My bush roses turned a bit yellow though. My unnamed rose that died back this winter has come back in force and is covered in blooms-- that fade and blow fast I'm afraid! I'm still waiting on the arctic fire. And of course the wild roses sitting in the background are long done and trying to RUN!

I haven't had time or nice enough weather (hot and windy!) to get out and take many more pics yet. I took a few when I got home, but I've been weeding since. So they aren't that great and I also can't get the top pic to turn for me!

Okay - you people are truly bad news. I think that I have to figure out how to turn my cottage garden plan into a ROSE GARDEN - 1 Rose peshaw - how can I limit myself to one now that I've seen all these beauties.

Thanks loads - more planning required

A few more ..
Morden Sunrise..purchased this year (replacing one that I lost)

Henry Kelsey just opening up..anyone else finding this one a very slow grower?..I've had it 2 years and it still pretty small

Sir Thomas Lipton..smells great

mystery rose..last year we dug up some "yellow" rose canes and several people in the family took them..my mil didnt mention there was a pink rose growing in this area that we got this one from (from a lot that was getting demolished and we were told to help our selves)..any one have a clue what this one could be?..the blooms are rather small and open up to a light pink

F.J.Grootendorst..a hard rose to take pictures of

Still waiting for the buds to open on the Topaz Jewel and Adelaide Hoodless..savona

Rugelda. A new one this year.

America. The first bloom even thouhg it wintered well. I had to bareroot it because some perennial morning glories were starting to strangle the poor thing.

Lambert Closse again. This is one of my favorite Explorers.

I am just thoroughly enjoying everyone's pictures of roses. I will post some later on when I am a little more caught up in the yard with weeding and picking berries.

I just have Morden roses. I haven't tried any others. But, when I do, I am going to come back to this thread and brouse all the wonderful pictures you all posted here.

Henry Kelsey. I bought this one last year as The Hunter and once it bloomed I knew that it wasn't. After searching and looking at other peoples roses locally I finally identified it. I think by next year when it fills out more it will be one of my favorites.


A shot of my other Folksinger. This one has a more peach hue.


Champlain. Alot like Morden Cardinette and Nicolas.


America. This time I managed to capture the coral colour.
I found out that oranges need to be shot in bright conditions.


William Booth. A new one for me this year. Once it grows bigger, I'm sure that it will look outstanding. It is showing lots of vigor.


Topaz Jewel. The flower petals don't last as long as alot others but I love it.


Peace. A stingy bloomer but the wait is worth it.


Quadra. This is ones of my all time favorites. I now have 4 of these.

You know that I love roses Sharon.
Savona, I too am finding that Henry Kelsey is a slow starter. It has height this year but very few canes.

Royal Edward.

RE has been a slow starter, but it is now starting to take off.


I wish this guy would have found a new home other than in this Country Dancer bud.

Ewww gross, I got some of those little pests in my rose buds this year too.

Shelley, are you sure the rose you posted is 'Peace'? Peace is supposed to be pale yellow and pale pink blend... I think your photo looks like 'Chicago Peace' or even 'Glowing Peace'?? Anyway, wow what a great colour!

I was going to come and post my new arctic fire now that it's opening up-- but it got sunburnt. So, does anyone have one I could see?

Now I have a new bed for next year, I'm going to have to look for some pale or white roses! You give me so many ideas!

It is Peace. I have posted another picture of a full flower from the same plant. The rose bush that I am wondering if it is mislabled is Serendipity. It looks more like Aloha to me and nothing like it's name.
I got this one from Cedar Hollow. It looks the same there as well as on HMF/roses.Hhhmmmmm. What do you think?
Sorry, I don't have Artic Fire.

My lighter coloured roses are just lovely now. The colours are more intense without the heatwave.
Morden Sunrise

Yellow Submarine

Rugelda. I am really liking this rose. It's colouring is somewhat like Peace.

Abraham Darby. Nice and full.

Golden Unicorn is putting on quite the show for being new. I would have to say that it is my most fragrant rose.

And Hope for Humanity. I love the blood red colour.

I have a few roses, but haven't contributed to this thread yet. Here's a picture of J.P. Connell. He's been in a container all summer because i haven't figured out a permanent home for him yet. He wasn't happy in the nursery container, but when i repotted him, he really took off. He was full of blooms last week:

Miss Sunrise has struggled all summer, but here she is with a beautiful coral bud today:

wow - seeing the picture of JP Connell confirms that I would like to include him in my "in planning stage" "miniature cottage garden". I also want to include Lambert Closse which was what got me hooked to begin with. Shelly thanks for the wonderful picture of Quadra - I'm hoping to grow that in an obelisk or on a trellis for some height. Are most of the roses you post pictures of hardy? I recognize the names of the Mordens/Parklands and the Explorers but are some of your other ones hardy? Rugelda is awesome!!!

I'm hoping that all of my roses are hardy here, Fern. This winter will be the test. Last winter was mild so,it wasn't a true test plus I added some more tender varieties.
I would put Quadra with an obelisk or trellis. My two older ones got fairly tall this year and fell over. But it is an awesome rose.
I moved my 5 year old JP Connell this spring from beside my house into the garden hoping that I would get a second flush. It worked. First it dropped all of it's leaves and then bloomed. Then it grew the leaves back and is just going to start blooming again.
I'm happy to report that my last year Prairie Star really hasn't quite blooming since it started. And the flowers last forever.
Rugelda is new for me this year. Hardiness???? I think it is listed as a zone 4. I love the colouring on it. It seems to be a steady bloomer.
FJ Grootendorst finally started blooming. I moved it and it didn't like it. Last year it was blood red. But this year it is blooming dark pink. Maybe I have a sport happening.

Kaleidoscope is another new rose for me this spring.


It has colouring somewhat like Distant Drums.

Shelly - do you mind if I ask you where you buy most of your roses? Do you usually plant them as a potted plant or as a bare root? and also since you seem to be from around my neck of the woods with your zone - is it too late to plant roses now? Thanks for any insight you can offer

I have bought most of my roses locally from greenhouses. It is a preference of mine. The bushes are larger when I buy them and put on a better show. I have bought roses from the chain stores, but the results are usually not what I hope. They take years to catch up to the greenhouse grown ones. I do mail orders when I can't find what I am looking for here. Such as the Bucks. I've ordered from Valley K Greenhouses and Cedar Hollow Rose Farms for these different varieties . Next spring I might also look at ordering from Corn Hill Nursery or Old Rose Nursery.
Kaleidoscope was ordered bareroot from Dominion Seed House. I must say that it was huge when I recieved it. The bud union was as large as my fist. If there is anything that interests me from there next year, I will not hestitate to order from them again.
I also ordered Golden Unicorn and Jacques Cartier bareroot from Lindenberg. This year is my first experience with bareroot roses.
Overall for performance, I perfer local greenhouse roses, mail order greenhouse roses, bareroot roses and then lastly chain store roses. Honestly, unless I cannot find a rose anywhere else, I will not buy them from the chain stores again. The rose roots are hacked off to fit into the pots.
As far as planting late summer or early fall, I personally have never tried it with roses. But why not try. It is growing in a pot and you won't be up rooting the plant. The roots should be able to spread a bit in the ground yet. I don't know if I would try it on the more tender varieties, but the hardier ones should do okay. It is a type of tree, and I plant them all the time in the early fall.
Are there any good sales on now?

Thanks for the insight Shelly,

One of the greenhouses has a 2 for one sale and they have Lambert Closse, J.P. Connell and Quadra. If I cannot decide on 2 out of three I might need to think of one more to plant. Gosh to fit that in I might need to not include the clematis - but the Quadra should provide height. I will think this through...

bloomorelse(Z4b NB Canada)

Holy cow, I can't believe you folks in zones 2 and 3 are growing these Tea roses. How much protection/pampering do you need to do to get them to overwinter outside. Although I'm considered zone 4b, I have not had a lot of luck with roses, unless I plant them up against the house. There were sooo many beautiful roses shown in this Rose Gallery, I can't decide which to try. I have JP Connell, Champlain and Morden Blush out in a long bed amongst other perennials, oh and John Cabot. They overwinter ok without protection, but you've all got me wanting MORE. I have Tropicana and another not sure of the name, I thought it was Peace or Chicago Peace, but the flower opens up like a mauvy color. These two are just starting to bud/bloom again. Need to check out some of the on line nurseries mentioned here. I'm sure I'll be back to this thread several times to drool.

I apoligize for moving my first bunch of photo's around. But my second set that went missing is still in the same place in photo bucket. I have more of them to post.
FJ Grootendorst. All of the buds have been bloonming dark pink instead of red this year.

The Hunter. This is such a great rose.

Topaz Jewel. Loving this one also.

Kaleidoscope. The two tone colouring is awesome.

Reine des Violettes

Morden Ruby

And my beloved Bucks.
Prairie Star. My bush from last year must have 2 dozen buds on now.

Hawkeye Belle

Carefree Beauty

Golden Unicorn

Folksinger

Serendipity

My Rose de Rescht is starting to finally leaf out for me. This is the rose that I thought had drowned out this spring. Maybe the weather will stay warm long enough that I might see a bloom on it.

For me roses are the most amazing flowers. Who needs lots of other flowering plants when you have a yard full of these beauties.
I lied. Lilies are almost as beautiful, and peonies, and iris's and daylilies and clematis's and............I'm starting to really like tulips.

Okay - do you order the "buck roses" from a catalogue? Hawkeye Belle is so beautiful! Does it need special care? How does it compare to Lambert Closse?

Laurie_z3_MB(sw MB)

Fern, IMO Lambert Closse can't compare to Hawkeye Belle in flower form and longevity. The blooms on HB are tea like and will last on the bush for a week easily. It's only downfall is that it isn't scented. I know I read somewhere that it claims to have a scent, but mine doesn't. Also, HB isn't as cane hardy as LC, so winter protection will be needed.

As for ordering Bucks from a catalogue, if you're lucky, you can find them. This past spring I picked up an own root Golden Unicorn from Lindenberg's, as I think Shelley did too. I find a lot of catalogues don't even mention the hybridizer's name, so unless you know your rose names really well, they may be hard to find. Probably the best place to order them is on-line.

Thanks for the information Laurie. Initially I wasn't going to plant anything in my new "lasagna bed" until next spring and I was going to include 1 rose - Winnipeg Parks [was a frontrunner from Garden Tours here in Saskatoon] but then I saw this wretched forum and was hooked - NEED MORE ROSES [lol]. I now desperately want to plant something this fall so that I can watch it grow next spring. That one will be a QUADRA [I'm almost 100% certain] but I do have room for at least 2 others maybe up to four in the whole yard - I have to pick carefully. Anyway I will ask at the greenhouses here whether they get Hawkeye Belle 'cause it is stunning

Thanks again

Fern, I bought most of my Buck roses from Cedar Hollow Rose Farm in B.C. I did order Golden Unicorn from Lindeberg just like Laurie said. If any of the greenhouses in Saskatoon can get in Buck roses, please let me know. I'll be hounding them as well. If not, I am almost certain that I will be ordering from Cedar Hollow again after X-mas and I could include a rose for you, if you wish. My oldest daughter is in Saskatoon and I do make frequent trips to the city.
Hawkeye Belle vs Prairie Star. I would pick Prairie Star. It is almost as full, almost the same color, but the flower petal edges do not turn brown as easy when they get wet. Plus it has a nice fragrance. This rose was my favorite last year as well as this year.

Hi all,

I did it - bought some roses. A local greenhouse had rose bushes for sale 2 for $10.00 so I thought that I didn't have much to lose. I bought myself a Lambert Closse, J.P. Connell, Prairie Joy and a mystery plant that had the wrong tags on it [said it was a white rose] but it is gloriously in bloom - a very full inward turning rose that is a deep pink almost fushia colour. I figured that even if it wasn't hardy then I would have a beautiful show for the next month for $5.00. I also bought a friend a Persian Yellow [her brother grows it in Calgary] and a Winnipeg Parks [some people thought that mine might be that or a pale Quadra]. Anyway - they are all planted and just in time before the deluge - 5 days of rain with over 3 inches in my back yard
