Pride of England
Ocean Song - florist rose [Tantau]
Crazy One-florist rose [Delbard]
Beautiful roses Lana! I really love the florist ones. Is that last one CRAZY "ONE" or CRAZY "HORSE?" I know there is a striped florist rose called CRAZY HORSE. Never heard of CRAZY ONE.
Beautiful roses and nice shots.I like them all.I will be coming back to see them again.
Beth, it is Crazy One from Delbard

Lana- Your roses are just stunners. Crazy One is highly unusual and soooo beautiful. I love those stripes.
Pride of England and Day Breaker look absolutely perfect. Lovely, lovely roses.
Your roses and beautiful!! I love Pride of England and Crazy One is nice too!! Thanks for sharing.
How do you get the florist roses? Do you buy them and root them yourself?
Thank you, everyone.
Rita, I buy some from nurseries [Hortico, Roses Unlimited, Heirloom...] and I root them myself over the winter in my basement - it is easy, you just need fluorescent lights.
Most of the florist roses I buy in grocery stores and I choose non patented variety or the ones not available in USA. Some roses do not do well in my climate [Tequila Sunrise, Black Baccara...] but some are wonderful [Crazy One, Smoky, Pink Intuition...]. I give unwanted roses to my neighbors and they are slowly dying there.
I'm assuming it's just the light filling the bloom, but Ocean Song is about the bluest rose I have ever seen.
that is one lovely mini! and I love Tantau and Crazy One--very striking...
