Thank you Beth.
Orange roses are my passion, as always, you had a few surprises too. Some I hadn't seen before.

Thanks for posting, especially now. I like the orange ones. I have or have had some of the ones in your list.

Do you have the new orange DA's Lady of Shalott on your order list? I ordered that one. If it makes it, I will have the oranges Pat Austin, Lady Emma Hamilton, Summer Song, and Lady of Shalott. I hope to see who is the best of the color group. It might be interesting to compare notes.

Thanks Inga & Carol.

Bustopher, I'm trying reeeeally hard not to order that LADY OF SHALOTT! I want to, but just dunno where I'd put it. I was going to do the DA special of ordering 4 get one free, but they won't allow it with new roses, so I didn't do it. Maybe I'll wait til next yr and it won't be a "new" rose!!

Beth, all your orange roses are quite stunning!

The saturated yellow orange color of South Africa just took my breath away and the coloration of Caribbean is also extraordinary striking.

As others already stated you always have some rose surprises in store. I just love that! Thanks for posting these cheerful roses especially at this time of the year.

I was just thinking of Brass Band and why it's so little seen.

Love the shot of Rosemary Harkness.

Love Easy Does It. I'm so hoping that mine does well over its first winter. Your picture of it shows why. Just beautiful...Rosemary Harkness is on my long list. Can you tell me how it is as a cut flower? Any negatives about it you can think of?...The rest of your oranges are lovely too. Liverpool Remembers and South Africa really catch my eye......Maryl

Thanks Christina and Irisgal!

Maryl, I'm sorry I can't really tell you how ROSEMARY HARKNESS is as a cut flower. I rarely ever take the roses inside. I really prefer to enjoy them outside. But, I'm guessing she probably doesn't last all that long. I do know she blooms well and repeats well.

Oh wow! Lovely! That South America just about did me in. Liverpool is also so eye-catching. I have DA Pat Austin, I plan to put her in the ground this spring and some of these look so tempting to augment her with. Gorgeous!

thanks Beth for responding. I usually don't do alot of cut flowers until late fall. Then I figure better my vase then the frost/freeze getting them. I've never seen a picture of your garden at it's peak, when every rose is in bloom (probably spring flush). I bet it's breath taking. Thanks as always for sharing your experience....Maryl

Your photo of Caribbean is wonderful. My mom's neighbor has it and it steals the show when you drive up the street, all of the icebergs and pink roses fall into its shadow.

I remembered why Brass Band was first on my list.
