Everything is starting to really get going here! Its still mainly my potted roses that are in bloom, but the in ground ones are also beginning to pop! Here are some blooms from over the past week :)


My Hansa Hedge (3 Hansas is a row)

Dutch Fork China

Walferdange (new, and I think I'm in love!)

One of my RVR Mystery roses...haven't been able to ID it yet

Ferdinand Prichard

R Rugosa Alba...and all time favorite!

A Longs Pedoncules

Midnight Blue can you NOT love those thorns???

Rainbow Sorbet...a BS disaster for her first year, and now 3 years later, she's a favorite & healthy as can be!

Pasadena Star...another newbie...and glad I took the chance on her :)

The rugosas are stealing my heart. I love the color of the foliage, and I love the mass planting.

I was thinking the same things about the wonderful rugosa leaves. I love all your blossoms. I adore the soft yellow on Pasadena Star

Beautiful pictures, and I too especially like your R Rugosa Alba, its now on my wishlist for next year! Would love to know what that mystery rose is too, it has such a unique shape!

Also love your beautiful rugosa hedge; I'm surprised they do so well in Tennessee. It must be colder there in the winter than I imagined. Pasadena Star is a beauty. Is that an older bloom of Ferdinand Pichard? It's usually much brighter and this rose reminds me very much of Honorine de Brabant.

Thanks everyone! I love showing off my roses on here. Its good to know they're appreciated! I'm lucky enough to be in a zone where I can grow just about anything in terms of hardiness. Although, some classes HATE it here (emm..Pernetiana)

Thanks Ingrid :) We do get pretty cold here in the winter. This winter I think out lowest temp was in the lower 20's, but I've seen it get into the teens almost every other winter...the rugosas LOVE it!! :)

Good call on the Ferdinand Prichard was one that was a few days old and ready to fade...he's usually brighter like you said. I think this one had been open for about 3 days before I snapped a picture.

Your hedge is really taking on a nice mature shape. It's very lovely. I agree with you about Walferdange. What a pretty shade of pink!

The Hansa hedge has definitly come a long way from the three ownroot-bareroots it was 4 years ago :) It still needs to fill in some, and suckers are helping with that task. I just love the scent of all its blooms right now....and the fall hips are amazing!
