This past week's blooms

bethnorcal9July 27, 2014

Been awfully hot lately. I've lost a handful of roses, some I can't replace, and it's frustrating. But I guess I just have to enjoy the ones that are hanging in there thru this heat wave and drought.

Here are some of the blooms from this past week or so...

This is a J&P Test Rose from a couple seasons ago.

SPICY - a florist rose

REUNION - one of Certified Roses intros that almost always burns on me

REMBRANDT VAN RYN - I'm lovin' the deep tones on these blooms lately!

PINK INTUITION - this one is becoming quite a tall plant... over 6ft now

OPENING NIGHT

MULLEM - one of the babies I got from Cliff before he closed up

MAVRIK

LITTLE DARLING - replacement from Hortico this yr for my old one that died last yr

JOSHUA BRADLEY

JAM & JERUSALEM

INDIAN FEMA - florist rose

FRECKLE FACE mini

FRAGRANT RHAPSODY - one of J&P's short-timers from the 90's

Love the "gentle" colouring on the J&P Test Rose.
My faves are the orange and coral colours, but love all the other too
Nice show.

Beth, all your roses are beautiful. I love the rich colors of REMBRANDT VAN RYN, but I can find very little information on this rose. FRECKLE FACE is cute and aptly named.

Beth - Love your J&P test rose and your Rembrandt Van Ryn, Joshua Bradley, Indian Fema and Fragrant Rhapsody are very interesting, love the unique colors of some of your roses.

Thanks everyone.

REMBRANDT VAN RYN is one of JB Williams' shrub roses from his Masterpiece series of striped roses. It grow very much shrub-like, sprawling all over the place and the blooms are in big long-lasting clusters. Another of his roses that's very similar is THE NIGHTWATCH, which is more on the crimson-plum and white color range. I have several other of his striped roses, and I just love them all!

Sorry the drought is harming your collection. I love Spicy. And Opening Night. And Jam and Jerusalem looks like an awfully pretty blend. So many beauties.
