More from the San Jose jaunt in May.

Darcy Bussell

wide shot - most color accurate, sorry it's compressed.

fully opened (too neonish)


Diana Princess of Wales (missed the main flush)

Pink Promise


think I'm a bit smitten with this pale pink rose (if it has a vase life !)

Over The Moon

Swirling Orange (my oddball Home Depot purchase not at HMF)

Queen of Sweden

upright rather formal grower

Thank you for sharing these delightful rose photos. They are all lovely, but my particular fave photo is Swirling Orange.

Hey! I rarely think to check out the Rose Gallery section, but my mom has a standard of Pink Promise that provides very nice cut flowers. I'm not sure how long they last, but it's one she likes to bring inside. I remember a distinct cold-cream note the last time I smelled it, but I don't recall it having much fragrance typically.

Great pictures!

Thanks Inga. Much easier to get a good shot at home rather than in a public garden. I do love this rose even with its lousy growth.

Arbutus, if you get any info on how long she lasts in a vase I'd love to hear it. I never thought a white based pink would be so appealing.

My favs are Diana Princess of Wales and Queen of Sweden. Guess I like the light pinks. Queen of Sweden is one of my favorite roses. Yours looks great!!
Good job!! Love them all.

I'll see if she has any idea or just cut one the next time I'm there and see for myself how long Pink Promise lasts.

Beth ~ I'm praying that little *@! son of a gun rose does well for you. It is still under 4 ft. after 10 (?) yrs. here. Without pruning!

Canadian_rose ~ you are so dedicated. Zone 3a sounds like Edmonton. I love the pinks too! Much better pictures of Diana Princess of Wales (not to be confused with the other 2 named after her) at HMF.

Arbutus ~ we need to know! :-) Thank you. On the rose discussion a gal is ready to shovel prune hers due to powdery mildew. Pnk.Promise had none here (central coast Ca.) or up in San Jose. So elegant.

Faye ~ she really is a queen. Thanks for looking!

I saw the title, but I haven't checked out that post yet. PM is a big problem here in Santa Monica (Coastal Los Angeles basically) and I haven't noticed that as an issue with Pink Promise. Rust is probably a bigger problem and I have yet to notice that either. He's not the most renowned breeder, but Jim Coiner has produced some lovely roses. I personally like Pink Promise and am very smitten with Hailstorm and Orchard's Pride. Orchard's Pride is one of my favorite modern HTs.
