The honey dijon has such a subtle and understated color. I really have a new appreciation for it, thanks to your lovely pictures.

Hmmm...I would have thought that with a lot of heat that Honey Dijon would fade to a whitish color. That always bugs me about getting light roses. Like my Souvenir de la Malmaison - no pink at all - just cream. But your HD has held on to its color. Looks great!!

I really like your Belinda's Dream!!! If I ever saw that one at the greenhouses here - I would snap that baby up!!

Lovely and thanks!!

Enjoyed those very much. I have been thinking about Honey Dijon for years for my own garden. Lovely roses. Thanks.

Thanks everyone for the comments....
Honey Dijon has faded quite a bit, but this is about as light as it gets. It was darker tan in May and will darken up again once the weather cools again. I do miss the pink tips on the flowers when it blooms in cooler weather. This one has been in the garden about 3 years now, and I'm happy with its performance.

I also LOVE Belinda's dream. Such fat, beautiful pink blooms! Easy to get started, disease resistant and grows fast. Don't see it often, but it is a very good rose.

Your Belinda's Dream is amazing. Is it good for zone 6?

From what I've read in the forums and online, Belinda's dream does best in zones 7-10. Looks like the further south you go, the better it grows. Maybe some other members can help on this question too?
