Marina -- Your gardens are so stunning. Every time you post photos I feel like I am on a tour of a European rose garden and am just amazed at all of your beautiful roses!

I especially love Summer Lodge, I adore striped roses and had never heard of that one before! Where did you find it?

I only have one S rose to share...

Stars 'n' Stripes Forever

Marina, your S roses are spectacular, as usual, and I'll be back this evening with a few comments on my favorites (that will be difficult).
Andrea, your Stars and Stripes is so cute and healthy looking. Don't feel bad about having only one rose to post--so do I.
I'm going to post the only S rose I have photographed now, along with a cheater, Sarah Bernhardt peony--it looks like a rose--heehee. My rose post is Sisters Fairy Tale rose, also known as Home and Garden. It wasn't the best bloom in the bunch. Diane

All I have for an "S" rose is the following cutie.

Sweet Diana (mini)--actually I have 7 of them. Very floriferous and disease-resistant.

I'll comment on the others later tonight. Did notice Scepter'd Isle up there--which got me all excited since I'm expecting mine with my spring order. Can't wait to plant the lovely one!

Also noticed St. Swithun--I got one bloom off her and she came down with RRD! ARggghhhh!

Seil, I don't even remember where I got my Spotty from. I may try to root it for you, if you are interested. Just let me know.

Nummy, my Summer Lodge is cutting-grown. Got it from my dear friend.

Oh, Marina, would you? I would love to have it! I think a polka dotted rose is just the coolest thing ever! It's a gallica so it should be hardy for me too. I don't even mind that it's a once bloomer either! I know just the spot for it!

Marina, I've been going through your pics --they are all so lovely. I can see why St. Ethelburga would ge a favorite with those full pink blooms, but I have to admit I'm partial to the lovely pics you have of the Austins, expecially Sharifa Asma, Sophy's Rose, and Symphony. And Senegal is a wonderful dark red. But I think maybe out of the whole bunch I may like Sommersonne--not just the full blooms, but also the different shades of coral and the light reverses--they are wonderful!

Nummy, stars n stripes is such a cheerful looking rose. Love those stripes.

And Nana, your peonies are as lovely as your roses. I'm a big peony fan also.

Seil, you always take such excellent solo pics of hts--each one gets to "star" beautifully in each pic. I have to agree with marina--Strawberry Romance is outstanding for form and subtle shading--all of which you capture marvellously well. Summer Fashion and Sunny Delight a great also.

Where where where to begin????

Marina, love all of your Austin's inparticular Snow Goose and St. Alban...and the Mantis of course! Also completely intrigued by Spotty and Summer Lodge! I also hope hat my baby Super Elfin (still in a 1g container) will one day bloom like yours!

Nummy...great pic of Stars and Stripes Forver....I thought it was Rosa Mundi at first glance :)

Kate...very cute little mini! I love yellow, but the BS is so bad here on them....ack!!!

Seil...I love the curly petals on Strawberry Romance! So cute and delicate at the same time. Also a fan of Softee. I grow it too and its a wonderful little rose!

Thank you, thank you, Marina!! Let me know when you are ready and we'll make arrangements.

Thanks, Kate!

Tammy, don't give up on Stars n Stripes. I thought I'd lost mine last year when I had to prune it to the ground in spring. Came back bigger and better than ever! Love that photo of St. Patrick!

Tammy, I am in love with your roses!
St. Elizabeth of Hungary. What can you tell about this rose? I have it on order from Heirloom for Spring delivery.
Love the color of your Star of the Republic - beautiful color variations.
Wonderful shot of Souvenir de Philemon Cochet. I have not seen a single decent bloom on mine since I planted it seven years ago :(
Erinnerung an Brod, Softee and South Africa are great, too.
I am afraid, I mentioned all your posted roses!:)

I love these ABC posts
Being a windowsill gardener myself, I have been lurking for many years and appreciate the hard work.
This is the "cream" of the crop. I think all the best blooms come out and many new or long time no-see, ones are here too.

Congratulations to all.

Thanks to everyone who has been posting on the alphabet forums, my rose wish list has quadrupled in length :)

Beth, I love striped roses and Carefree Spirit is such a happy one. I'll have to add that to my list.

Anne Cecilia, was there ever anything so romantic as Sydonie? I'll have to add that to my list too -- as well as the Pink Fairy micro-mini rose. I'm a pushover for anything with "fairy" in its name and for tiny, little things.

Marina, you and your roses are so helpful and inspiring. I have wondered each year if Snow Goose was a pretty enough choice for a rambler and your beautiful shot proves that it is. Another one for my list.

Thank you all for sharing your roses. I've learned so much.

I think I am going to have to dramatically shorten this post because the wonderful photos just keep on coming...oh, where to start?
The intoxicating red of Marina's Scarlet Velvet is a good place to begin. It's such a perfect photo. I seem to be attracted to those wavy petals in Schloss Bad Homburg and Souvenir d' Edouard Maubert. I think a favorite for me is Senegal with the rich color of its velvety petals. And Souvenir du Docteur Jamain has more of that intoxicating velvety red, which I can't get enough of. I, too love St Ethelburga, and have wanted it for some time. So it's nice to know how much you love it. Summer Song has such neat muted orange tones--very intriguing.
Sweet Diana is just cute and cheery--love it, Kate.
Seil,I love all your photos, but I think that of Strawberry Romance is my favorite. I just love those lacy and scalloped petals.
Tammy, St Elizabeth of Hungary has been on my "life list" for so long, and I love seeing your beautiful example of her. I think the Bumble is actually the "Star" of the Republic, but that is one gorgeous rose. It reminds me of Caramel Antique. South Africa has such a stunning color, too.
New to me is Spirit of Glasnost, Beth, and it is so pretty with those pink shades on such big, fat blooms, and Sanka is a lovely shaded rose, too. That's a great photo of South Africa. What a color.
Annececilia, "wow" is certainly the word for all these lovely shaded roses of yours. So subtle. Love the shot of Sheila's Perfume, mirroring the cloudy sky. And those swirling petals of Sydonie, so lush.
Well, I've about written a book on these beauties, and as I said once before, there is a coffee table book here of all your "beautiful best". Thanks for another wonderful trip through the letter S. Diane

Beth--Love Soaring Sprits and Stunning are wonderful! I love the striped colors of Soaring Spirits and the packed full of petals Stunning, is well stunning! :)

Annececilia, that Sweet Fairy is just too cute! Having never seen it in person, I didn't realize how tiny it is until I saw if with your hand for reference.

Marina, I rec'd my St. Elisabeth from Vintage Gardens in 2011. I probably got a little over anxious and transplanted her into the ground sooner than I should have and she's kind of stalled out in terms of growth. I disbudded her all this year hoping she would grow. She's fairly disease resistant though, and her blooms are stunning (well, they were the first year when I let her bloom anyway!). You'll love her, I just think she's slow to get established. I was glad to see that you like St. Ethelburga, I have it coming from Hortico this Spring.

Tammy

There are some really nice pictures posted here. Some of these roses are rarely, if ever, seen in shows. Thanks for sharing. I'll add some of mine here. The first is the climber Salita.

The next one is also a climber, Swan Lake.

The next one is Summer Song as it looked when it bloomed at least a month earlier than usual this year because of our weather. It has more color than it usually does.

Next is Sunsation, AKA Veldfire.

Next is Sir Edward Elgar, with a companion.

Next is a happy-looking Seashell.

Next is Silver Spoon.

Silverado, with some morning dew.

Anyone else have Sterling Silver?

Shockwave caught in some interesting lighting.

One AARS variety not frequently seen, but nice, Sheer Elegance.

A very prolific purple one, Shi-Un.

Lastly, an older AARS variety, the grandiflora Starfire putting on quite a show.

I hope you like these.

Bustopher, all of your roses look so healthy! I don't see even a speck of anything other than perfect blooms and foliage! I think Silver Spoon & Veldfire are my favorites....and of course Summer Song (I went crazy trying to find it this year, but no luck!)

In the last photo, the lavender roses in the direct front are Chantilly Lace. The ones on the left side are probably Charles de Gaulle. They are not bi-colored blends like Chantilly Lace. Glad you are liking these.

bustopher--they are all lovely, but I'm especially taken by Sunsation (love the yellow reverses) and even moreso Charles de Gaulle. Never seriously thought about getting a lavender rose for my garden before--now I'm wondering where that one might fit in. Thanks.

Since I don't prune Starfire too heavily because as a descendant of Charlotte Armstrong it doesn't like pruning shears, it typically runs about 5 ft tall and 4 ft across. I generally have not been doing pruning back by more than half in the spring if I am lucky enough to get to do it. This last year was too warm too fast so I couldn't get the early pruning done. I had flowers at the end of March. I pruned many of the plants however I could after they flowered.

Beth, love the color blend on SPIRIT OF GLASNOST!

Spring's a Comin' is gorgeous, Anne! Is that the normal form on Sydonie? Amazing!

Thanks, Nana! Strawberry Romance is a fancy one!

Bustopher, I've been in love with Summer Song but recently heard it isn't a very good rose. What's your opinion?

Summer Song for me has done okay, but it does not like our hot summers. If it blooms in summer at all, the flowers are quite a bit smaller than spring and fall and do not have as good color. The bushes will throw long canes. The flowers are fragrant. Lady of Shalott is a better summer bloomer and is more of an improved Pat Austin; Lady Emma Hamilton has a better growth habit and quite fragrant flowers. If I were only able to have one of these four varieties, I think I would go with Lady Emma Hamilton first with Lady of Shalott as a close second. Summer Song would be an also close third while Pat Austin would be last choice. If I were living somewhere else and in a different climate, my answers might be quite different.

'Simply Marvelous' - Floribunda I bought last year.
Blooms are SUPER fragrant and as big as a Grandiflora.
It bloomed all through the triple-digit summer heat and severe drought last year.

Prune and feed monthly to keep blooms big.

Kate,

'Sundowner' ages wonderfully too. The top orange part becomes more of a colour like sherbet ice cream - yellow-orange - and the bottom part changes to a softer coral, like the sunset.
It is a lovely rose, indeed.
----------------------------------------------
Here is a better image of 'Simply Marvelous', taken in May of 2012. I wish I could upload her fragrance for you to sample, as well.
