This was the first year this climber had some decent blooms. It was planted between 2005 - 2007.

I have this rose in a container right now. Got it in July from Roses Unlimited. I think I am really going to like it. Ordered a grafted one to go with it.

This rose has always done well for me. I like it, just wish it wasn't quite so thorny!

Sara Ann,
LOVE your Tropicana! I think you'll be very happy with Easy Does It...never quits blooming in my garden and very disease resistant here.
I have several in this color range. Hoping these are pictures of them that I haven’t posted yet or at least not too often.

Over the Moon (a favorite of mine)

Fragrant Cloud (exceptional bloomer here)

Livin’ Easy

Apricot Drift (cute little landscape rose)

Arethusa (china)

Bronze Star (new for me last year, but very happy with it so far. Huge blooms and smells wonderful.)

Chris Evert (I love this one!)

Colorific (very good rose here)

Chihuly

Easy Does It

Marmalade Skies (decent bloomer even though it’s in way too much shade)

Just Joey

Perle d’Or

Touch of Class

VooDoo

We Salute You (not crazy about this one for some reason. Not a bad rose, just can't get excited about it)

Here's my small contribution, Cl. America. I was going to add Joseph's Coat but the image I have shows a strawberry pink bloom.

Sara_ann,

Gorgeous, healthy looking roses!!!

I love your Voodoo. I grew a lot of the varieties you have shown in a previous garden since so many of them are actually recommended varieties for my climate. Voodoo was always on my list, but I was never able to acquire it for one reason or another.

I have Colorific on order. It is interesting to see the varied blooms on one plant.

Thanks Pat - You have some gorgeous ones in this color class. Over the Moon is lovely. Love your Chris Everett, Apricot Drift, Chihuly, Marmalade Skies, Fragrant Cloud, Easy Does It, Livin' Easy, Colorific, all very nice. Lynn - Your Climbing America is lovely.

Lynn,
Colorific does very well in my hot, humid climate. Very prolific bloomer and long lasting even in the heat. I love all the color changes and the frilly bloom form, but beware that overall it is a very loud rose. I have it by Fragrant Cloud (that’s it back left in the above pic of Fragrant Cloud), and it holds its own colorwise. I’ve actually considered moving it because from a distance they look very similar in color once the blooms “tan” to solid.

Here are a couple more pics to give you a better idea of it:

Full bush shot (it gets pretty big here)

I love this one! I tend to be drawn to the brightness of the oranges so I have quite a few.

Pat, love that Chihuly!

Oh WOW--knock me over with color! I'm not sure always how I feel about orange, but I love blends, and perhaps golden apricot is my favorite blend. Here's just a couple;

Lady of Shalott (Austin)--wonderful shrub

Buff Beauty (Hybrid Musk)--sometimes a BB bloom takes on strongly apricot tones.

Little Sunset (mini)--it gets more and more apricot as it ages.

Valencia (HT)--I have yet to take a photo that does her full justice. Wonderful rose.

Molineux (Austin)--This is my daughter's pic of Molineux in a very apricot mood, almost all the golden yellow shades missing. Molineux's color ranges and combinations are quite varied at times!

I wish you joy of color!

I love roses that are these colors. I don't know why I don't have Easy Does It yet, but I think I will get it. Seil - the Hot Romance is hot, hot, hot! And, thanks to this forum, I already have Lady of Shalott on order.

Here's a few of mine:

Here's the HT "Hey Jack".

Here's the grandiflora "About Face". Every year I prune it severely and by the end of the year it is higher than my roof line!

Here is the HT "Halloween".

Here's the shrub "Imagine".

Here is the floribunda, "Dr. Jo"

Here is a great shrub rose that I got from Cliff when he went out of business, "Belvedere".

And, here;s fhe HT "Milva"

Here's the HT "Scented Memory".

Here's the floribunda "Vavoom" - a blackspot magnet!

I didn't intend to write a book about this gorgeous color group, but I think that's what I ended up doing.
Sara-Ann, I know you will love Easy Does It--at least I did during my EDI's first year (2013). It blooms nonstop as everyone has said. I love the tropical orange of your beautiful Tropicana.
Pat, your Over the Moon looks like rich ice cream, while Arethusa is a neat, delicate sherbet color-yum. They are beautiful. I still hope my Easy Does It looks as wonderful, eventually, as yours does.
Lynn, your climbing America has a lovely and unique color. Very different.
Carol, mmm, Charles Austin is a hunk--of big, beautiful rose. I need to check him out on HMF. And Grace's rich, caramel colored centers are so luscious. I think I'm getting hungry.
Seil, your photos are stunning--pardon the cliche, but I can't get over the pic of Elle with those crisp, scalloped petals, and colors that seem to glow with their own light source. You've got to frame this one. As you know, your photos of Eyeconic Pink Lemonade are the reason that rose is coming to my garden this spring.
Kate, you've captured a more delicate look in Lady of Shalott. I love her sweet bud, too.
Snowheather, you have a glorious group of oranges and apricots. I've never seen such a luscious photo of Halloween. There are lots of interesting color touches going on in those petals. I am so envious that you grow Belvedere. It's one of the Tantau roses on my lifetime "want list", unavailable now in the U.S., as far as I know. Your photo is a killer, as are the pale shades of Scented Memory in its photo. Thank you for showing us these beautiful rose photos.

Love your Augusta Luise, such a lovely rose and of course Jude the Obscure is wonderful and Evelyn is lovely. They are all beautiful, So glad you shared.

Thanks, Sarah-Ann. I think this was an outstanding color group from everyone. I was just boggled by the extreme variety and vibrant color. I hope Abbaye does well for you. I think this one takes a little time to reach its potential. I particularly like its natural trumpet vase-like growth habit. It requires very little pruning. Diane

Snowheather--love your Hey Jack and Halloween--dramatic and vivid!

Nana--as usual, your Jude is marvelous.

Beth--love those vivid shades on Apricot Passion, but the more subdued shades and form of Hollywood Star are wonderful also.
