More summer loving roses

kathy9norcalJuly 12, 2014

Well, the smoke is gone, it has cooled a bit (only temporary) and I have a moment to post some more of my happier roses. These photos are from the past few weeks.

Snowbird, a favorite white, grows in moderate shade. My rooted cuttings in full sun bloom more often.

Symphony, my favorite Austin

Buff Beauty, not a favorite. It blows very quickly and doesn't like our heat, I think.

Bill Warriner, my second rose, moved too many times, trying to make a comeback

Our Lady of Guadalupe's flushes get bigger each time it goes off!

grocery mini, Bronze Kordana, and portulaca

Sharon's Delight roses with a favorite daylily, Ruby Border

Thanks for looking!

Snowbird and your mini Bronze Kordana are quite appealing--but so is your lovely daylily Ruby Border.

I'm so jealous of your Lady of Guadalupe. Mine almost didn't survive our brutal winter. It had to be cut back severely and has only thrown out an occasional bloom so far--but I'm happy to report that it may be rallying. Today I saw about a dozen buds--though the bush itself is still only about 2 ft tall as yet. Hope mine gets back to what your Lady is presently doing!

Wow!! OLOG is gorgeous. I really need to move mine. Gets very limited sun. Your roses look great. Glad the smoke and temps are better even if temporary!! Judy

Too bad Buff Beauty blows quickly. So pretty. Thank you for the daylily. I want to add one or two so always watch your posts to see what does well for you.

Lovely, Kathy! I have portulacas in my one bed too. Some times I have to look really close to tell if it's a mini bloom or a moss rose, lol!
