Oldies including Apricot Nectar

iris_gal(z9 CA)August 12, 2013

I've just the same old roses so haven't been posting (and not doing so well with this camera - have to tweak).

Apricot Nectar -- an old florib., lovely but not long-lasting

Colette -- completely disease free for 5 yrs.+, being pink, looks well in cottage garden setting, smaller blooms

Royal Sunset -- excel. 12-foot climber, very little blackspot/rust, love color! love 6-foot fragrance!

Secret -- strong upright HT, fairly disease resistant (no spray), fragrant up close

Swirling Orange -- being pink/beige-wht instead of pink/apricot, a cheapie Home Depot

My favs are:
Swirling Orange
Royal Sunset
Apricot Nectar

Swirling Orange is just breathtaking.
Apricot Nectar looks so soft and romantic looking.

Nice to see Apricot Nectar. I just got another after not having it for 10 years. It was a band so I'm excited to see what an own root will do. My old one was on Dr. Huey.
