"R" roses

dublinbay z6 (KS)February 1, 2013

I'll try starting a new thread again--the "R" roses. Hope I'm not duplicating anyone here.

I only have one contribution, but it is one of my favorite new roses.

Red Intuition (HT)--my new plant last summer.

Here's a close-up: Red Intuition

Waiting for your "r" roses. I know they will be lovely.

A friend of mine has that rose, Kate, and I agree, it is beautiful. Nice pictures.

Here's my only contribution, Rosa Mundi, the gallica, although you already saw it in the L's with Lynnie!

Oh, harborrose--Rosa Mundi and Lynnie--I get it. But I thought it would be rather cool if both types appeared on one bush!

As usual, Marina, I hardly no where to start with the wealth of beauty you always post. So I'll begin with the clematis--I wondered how red Rebecca would get. Glad to see your picture. And I like Rooguchi--I have one too.

Somewhat at random (cuz I like them all), I'm really taken with your two photos of Rosanna, and Rosalinde right before that is lovely also. Then for a change of pace, Rose of Pickardy is wonderful! But so is Rosomane Janon --I'm particularly fond of those yellow/gold/apricot combinations, and that one has a dash of orange-red in there too--dramatic!

By the way, Harborrose, I like all the blues with your Rosa Mundi--my favorite combination.

Thank you, Kate!

Marina, lovely roses all. I have a very young Polareis or Ritausma and I love love love that bloom also. Wonderful to see an entire bush shot of that rose.

Thanks for posting them!

Marina, I love love love Radio Times and Rose of Pickary! I've looked at both of these Austin's numorous times and really never gave them much thought, but in your pictures, I really like them! I have Robbie Burns coming this spring from Hortico...and I'm excited about that now :) However, after seeing your picture of Polar Ice, I realize mine is planted in a completely inappropriate location! I didn't leave it close ot enough room!

Kate, I have Red Intuition on order for Palatine...and I can't wait! You'll have to let me know how it overwinters for you. I was a little hesitant to order it because of its hardiness.

HarborRose...don't you just love Rosa Mundi? It and Tuscany Superb were the first two OGRs I ever purchased!


Red Headed Stranger

Rose de Rescht

Route 66

Rose du Roi a Fleurs Pourpres


Rosa Mundi

Robert le Diable

Rhapsody in Blue

Red Ridinghood

Rayon Butterflies

Ramblin Red

Rainbow Sorbet


R Rugosa Alba

Beautiful roses everyone! I love that ROSANNA! Wow! And the RED RIDING HOODs!

I have tons of R roses. Most of these pics were still in my Picturetrail album, but a few I just finished re-tweaking. I don't think I'll get done with this before I have to start tweaking this yr's photos! Yikes...

Here are a smattering of mine.... LOL

My favs are Rusty and Revelry, Beth. On the roses forum I was just asking about good russet colored roses, but nobody mentioned Rusty. I'm glad you posted it :)

Thanks for that photo of Royal Amethyst, Beth. It was one of my favorites but didn't like zone 4. I tried growing it potted as well, but it didn't like that either. I sure miss it.
Well, here are some of my R's to add to the show:

Rainbow Knockout (not keeping this rose - it washes out to blah in the summer sun.)

Ramblin' Red (not quite a climber for me in zone4)

Red Masterpiece (looking way too orange in the intense sun of this photo, but it is a true velvety red)

One of my must have roses, Rosa Glauca

The old Kordes climber Rosanna from 1982:

Rosette Delizzy, which I played around with growing in a pot for a few years - until I got tired of the in and out spring dance!

Royal Edward

Reine Victoria

Rose de Rescht

R. cinnomomea plena, found growing at an old homestead site near my home

R. canina - from rootstock

R. Magnifica, one of my fav rugosas

Beth --my favorites are Rhapsody in Blue and Royal Amethyst -- two lovely purples!

The Red Intuition, of course!

Anne-- and Magnifica Rugosa is--in a word--magnificant! And Royal Edward is statuesque and beautiful!

They are all so lovely, I can't pick a fave.
It's so interesting to see, how different they grow in different climates

Ritausma (aka Polareis) means Dawn in Latvian.

Tammy, I was just browsing again and was reminded that I meant to tell you that Red-headed Stranger is a stunner--I'd say a "knock out," but that name seems to have other connotations these days. LOL

Love those golden stamens in it also.

Seil, Ruffled Cloud is just adorable! I also really like your Rainbows End. I had mine potted for three years and it did terrible. This past fall I transplanted it into the ground to see if it would do any better...its do or die time! lol
