Just a couple

Lothlin(5b)May 7, 2012

I've just started getting my garden set up this year, and I've gone and planted a couple of rosebushes.


Zepherine Drouhin. It's still a rather small plant, but I've got high hopes for it, and I can't wait for it to get larger so I can have more blooms - the smell on it is the most heavenly thing I've ever smelled on a flower!


Joseph's Coat. Picked it up at the garden center today on a whim - its got a ton of buds on it already, I suspect it's going to put on a pretty good show even this year!

I love the fragrance of Zephirine. I grow the sport, Kathleen Harrop, and it's a great rose, vigorous.

Thanks for posting your lovely roses.

They're beautiful! I envy you places to put climbers.

I've got plans to run the Zepherine up the side of my garage, and Joseph's coat I'm just going to kind of let droop and go wild - I figure it will help block the fugly view of my air conditioner XD

I added two more roses to my fresh garden! I only meant to pick up one, but my nursery had a smidge of a problem with black spot on one of the roses I want to get, and since I buy so much with them, they gave me a two-for-one! I love them

So the new flowers...

Two good picks! I love my Elle. Each flush is a different color depending on how the weather has been!
