Oh good--The "G" roses--couple of pics here that I don't usually get to show off.

Gourmet Popcorn--cute mini and good disease-resistance-- should be even better in its new spot in the garden.

Gypsy Carnival (HT)--three-quarters view/yellow reverses of this beauty.

Gypsy Carnival--fully opened. Most beautiful blooms, but wimpiest plant you've ever seen and my one disease-magnet in my garden. But gosh--those beautiful blooms!

Green Ice--another white mini. This one is a sprawler. Wish I had a better picture to show its charms.

Golden Showers-this lovely rambler was a recent victim of RRD. It had been growing in my garden for about 15 years.

Hope you enjoyed those. Beth, I love your Ginger Hill--so delicate and pure. Gemini is nice also.

Kate

Beth - What a great group of G roses. My favorites are -

Great Scott (I've always wanted that one)
Gypsy Curiosa
Ginger Hill
Gail
Gina Lollobrigida
Gene Boerner
Golden Monica
Golden Freelander
Good Morning
Girls Night Out (Been considering that one)
Grande Amore
Garden Sun Cl.

Kate - I really like your G roses.
Gourmet Popcorn is adorable and Gypsy Carnival is really impressive. Your Golden Showers was so lovely.

I feel like I am cheating a little on this one, because this is not a 100 percent positive ID. It was supposed to be a Marijke Koopman, but was obviously mislabeled. So with a little bit of help, I think it might be GRANADA. Still not positive though. It is my only "maybe" G rose.

Desertgarden- Las Vegas, Z9a @ 2800 ft.

I no longer have this rose, but here's Gemini.

Sara-Ann, I have adored Granada for years. What a gorgeous rose.

Beth, Gentle Giant is gorgeous and Gracie Allen is so pretty and so unique looking.

Kate, Gypsy Carnival is stunning!

Beth, Gingerbread Man and Geisha are just precious! And that Grey Pearl is stunning.
Sara Ann, Gorgeous picture of your rose whether or not itâÂÂs Granada!
Kate, Love your Gypsy Carnival, but am really smitten with that Green Ice
Desert Garden, Gemini is beautiful. ThatâÂÂs one IâÂÂve never grown, but have always wanted to try.

I only have a few GâÂÂs, but they are some of my all-time favorites:
Grand Dame

George Burns

Gina Lollobrigida

Gruss an Aachen

Sara--whatever the name, that is a lovely rose.

Pat--that Grande Dame is gorgeous! For that matter, so is George Burns--but is it the rose or the picture? I've seen other pics of Georgie that I didn't like that well. Having never seen it in real life, I can't say.

Desertgarden - The color really comes through on your Gemini, love it. Pat - Your Grand Dame, Gina L and Gruss an Aachen are just gorgeous. Your George Burns is the prettiest picture I've seen of it. I'm having a hard time liking the stripes, but there are a few that have tempted me.

Sara-ann, that probably is GRANADA. I have it somewhere out back in a bed that doesn't bloom much. I hope someday it will look like that! But it's probably doesn't get enough full sun.

Kate, love your GOURMET POPCORN! Everybody's pics are beautiful!

Every bloom is different on George and some are prettier than others. I didn't care for him at all his first couple of years in my garden and actually considered shovel pruning him. Either the blooms improved greatly over time or I grew used to them because I do rather like him these days. He is probably the thorniest rose I grow, though.

Seil, I've never been a big fan of singles, but I've seen so many great pictures you've posted of yours, that I'm starting to fall for them. Golden Wings is a beauty! I used to grow Graham Thomas, and if mine had ever looked like yours, I'd still have him.

Oh my!!!
Pat and Beth - I love the Gina Lollobridgida pictures!!! I have that rose - but not as nice of pictures. Mine doesn't have any fragrance. How about yours?

Beth
- Ginger Hill - such soft coloring.
- Gene Beorner - love the color and shape!
- Gentle Giant - WOW!
- Grey Pearl - so surprising to scroll down and see that coloring. Very striking!
- Ginger Rogers - stunner!

Kate
- Gypsy Carnival - love the sideways shot! You can actually see green at the base of the petals! How pretty!

Sara-Ann
- Granada - what a gorgeous shot!!

Lynn
- Gemini is so mutable! I love how dark and ruffled yours is.

Pat
- Grand Dame - I'm getting this one this spring!! Yours has so many gorgeous flowers. Yay!
- Gruss - soooo pretty!

Seil
- Golden Celebration - I love the placement of the flowers in the picture - just immersed in all of that green.
- Granada - what color!!!

Here is my Gina Lollobrigida

All the Ginas are gorgeous!

Seil, I like all those photos, but your one of Garden Party makes me wish I had got one of those instead of the white HT (Memoire) that I ended up buying. I'm actually having flitting thoughts of spading Memoire so I can put in a Garden Party--so to save my back, tell me that Garden Party has lots of BS problems and therefore I don't really want to plant one in my garden--OK?

Thanks everyone!

Kate, being one of those older 50's HTs GP does tend to spot but what I've found is that there is a reason some of them are still around and popular. It's so vigorous it usually just shrugs it off and keeps on blooming!

Oh, gee, the G's have got me.
Little Gingerbread is so gosh darn sweet, Beth. He does fit his name. And appealing is the soft pink center and frills of Ginger Hill. There is more charm in the pretty two toned ruffles of Gail. I think my favorite, though, is Gentle Giant with its rich colors. Wouldn't Grey Pearl look good surrounded with some deep wine reds? I'd like to try growing GP.
Kate, you are so right. That Gypsy Carnival is a stunner. I'm sorry you lost Golden Showers after such a long time.
Sara-Ann, Granada or not, it's perfectly beautiful.
Lynn, your Gemini blooms are most impressive. Will you be growing it again?
You have a stunning collection of colors in these roses, Pat. I'm rarely taken with a stripey, but your George Burns is an exception. I think it's just the right color combo that does it. Your photo of Gruss is an exquisite portrait of her.
Mmm, seil, love that shot of the ethereal Golden Wings. You do know how to photograph those singles. And Granada is another of those frameable photos--the colors are so full of light.
Oh, that scrumptious Grace you have, Carol. It's an Austin, right? Boy, Gemini does change a lot. Love your huge looking two toned version.
Brittie, your Grandmother's Hat is charming. The bloom fits the name perfectly. Little Grand Old Opry is just plain old adorable, too.
Thanks for all the extraordinary G's. Diane

Carol, I missed your question about Grandmother's Hat. It IS pretty fragrant. Very fresh smelling as I recall.

There are so many in this thread that have really piqued my interest. Gina Lollobrigida is very nice looking (have to hmf that one), and the color of Grey Pearl is just crazy. I wish I had the space for some of the bigger ones, but they really become monsters here.

Forgot I had these. Gemini is so ..... o_r_a_n_g_e .... here. I was expecting a much softer color. Her form is impeccable..
Also want to alert you to what I discovered is happening to photos posted here that are less than 640 pixels in width. They get widened to 640.
And if they are over that width, yup, get reduced to fit that number.

Wow!!! That bowl of Gerties is amazing!!! So beautiful as only a pink can be (to me)

Irisgal - those Gemini pictures are gorgeous!!! Loveliest pics of Gemini I've ever seen!!!! So soft looking - not in color but in shape. Wow!

Curdle - yeah, that Golden Celebration spray in unbelievable!!

Nanadoll - Love your shot of Golden Celebration! Such a rose!!! And yes, Grace is an Austin. Lovely rose - but so far no scent. Plus there seems to be a long wait between flushes. But when it flushes - it has a whole bunch of them.

There are many highly treasurable pictures in the above groups. I will add some of my "G" roses also. First is a bloom of Graham Thomas.

Next is a shot of Golden Zest.

A rare, nice flower off of Grafin Sonja.

A whole-bush shot of Goldmarie.

A most-of-the-bush shot of General Jacqueminot.

The new one, Good As Gold.

A bloom off the quite variable in color Gemini.

A single bloom off of Golden Holstein.

A couple from General Cavaignac.

Lastly, and not the best picture, but one of the few that I have of Glacier.
