Fragrant Memory

Fragrant Memory or Jadis is a rose I've wanted for awhile, ordered this one from Roses Unlimited, It just started blooming, I'm not disappointed.

Oh lucky you!!!! I had that rose once - unfortunately my husband left it on the grass (in a pot where it was all summer) and it froze to the grass. Tried his best, but eventually left it there. I think the roots must have grown through into the ground. Obviously it froze and died. But it was my 2nd favorite rose at the time.
Please share more photos.

Thank you Carol. I had never seen this rose in person, but have always admired the pictures and like both names, even though I don't base my rose selections on the name of a rose. Also when a rose is fragrant that makes it more appealing. Was yours a good bloomer?

Fragrant Memory didn't grow well for me, but

Fragrant Cloud does. And its offspring.

Cottonwood - I love Fragrant Cloud, but I don't have it. Right now I'm not sure about Fragrant Memory, but it looks promising.

Yes, it grew really well and had TONS of blooms. I really want to get Jadis again. Sigh. :)

Carol - That sounds wonderful. Not much I like better than a beautiful hybrid tea bush with lots of blooms! I took this picture yesterday, I like it better than the first.

Stunning blooms. I have one, still a small own-root, waiting to see what it will do.

Thank you Paul, hope yours does well. I am conflicted about own-root roses. There is a part of me that prefers them. I have 3 Belinda's Dream roses, Big Momma, Dublin Bay, Love, 2 Our Lady of Guadalupe, several old garden roses, and one Dick Clark, Fragrant Memory and a few others that are all own-root and most are doing well. I've asked before on this forum to try and get a good answer, and it seemed to turn more into a discussion between other posters over which was better, own-root or grafted. I was almost convinced that it is better to plant grafted modern roses, but I'm not so sure, because I have had some success and if own-root roses work, it makes a lot more sense than having to worry about suckers and also the fact that they would be hardier too. I know you are in a colder zone than me, but I am very impressed with the roses you've shown on here. People can discuss back and forth about which is better, but a picture speaks volumes!
