Two July show stealers

kathy9norcalJuly 4, 2012

I should have better things to do than post on the fourth but I am making barbecued baby back ribs, which take 5 hours for perfection. So, in looking at my photos, these two roses are definitely show stealers right now (and both growing in pots!)

Heaven On Earth


Koko Loko

Koko Loko is a different color in shade and in sun, very noticeable to my camera. It grew into a great bush and is covered in blooms again.

Thanks for looking and have a great Fourth of July!

Very beautiful roses both, although I wish they'd stop giving modern roses such silly names. Something that beautiful should have a very pretty name.

I always thought Koko Loco, was a little drab looking, but it's really lovely.
Heaven On Earth has so many shadings too.

Hope you had a lovely 4th of July.

Love them! Every time I try to buy Heaven on Earth its sold out :( Maybe next year I'll be lucky!

Koko Loco did great last year for this year, nothing! Not a single bloom yet this year...but yours looks amazing!

Oh so beautiful! Those are some of the prettiest Koko Loco blooms I've seen, what a unique color, I'm starting to wish I had picked up the one I saw earlier this season!

Thanks for the nice comments, all of you.
Ingrid, I agree with not liking silly names for roses. It takes something away from them.
Tammy, I hope it's not a flash in the pan rose! KL is growing beautifully in its first year, very full and even foliage, no dead leaves, lots of blossoms. It seems perfect for a big pot.
