I took this indoor picture of Buxom Beauty today, I guess depending on the lighting the automatic flash works, this was the result.
This bloom of Rina Hugo is an example of why I ordered this rose to begin with. I will admit I was disappointed with the first blooms, but this third flush looks like it's going to be a good one and the bush is vigorous
Sara, it is beautiful. If Palatine offers it for next year, I want one. I had it ordered for this year and canceled it, but kept Buxom Beauty. Which do you like best?
Kentucky_rose - This is my second year for Buxom Beauty and sometimes I like it, but other times the color is almost too much, but I can deal with it, it's a good rose with a nice fragrance. If my Rina Hugo blooms start looking like the one pictured, I think I'll like it better, but not much fragrance. I was drawn to RH because of its color. Both of these did come from Palatine.
Beautiful blooms!! Especially love Buxom Beauty!! How many roses do you grow? Thanks for sharing your beauties!!!
Thank you prettypetals - I have around 85 roses, and about 60 varieties, since I have duplicates and triplicates of a few. I have mostly hybrid teas, then floribundas, and a few old garden roses, which I love and a few climbers. I want to plant more of the old garden roses and a few Austins, along with mini-floras and a few miniatures. And there are still dozens of hybrid teas I want, it never ends! But I know I need to slow down a little!
Lovely photos of your beautiful roses.
I tell myself all the time no more roses Sara Ann but I cave all the time. Lol. Those beautiful blooms always win!!! Judy
They're beautiful, Sara! I like how the flash silvers the petals on BB.
Thank you Inga and Seil. Seil - I think the silvery look is what makes it look so pretty too. Prettypetals - I know exactly what you mean. As long as we're enjoying it, I guess it's okay.

I like flash shots where the rose stands out against a black background! Very Nice Sara Ann!
Thank you so much, Jim.
I love the feathering on the outside petals of Buxom Beauty!! So lovely!! I can't wait for my bare root BB to look like that!!
Rino Hugo looks wonderful. I once had a bouquet for Costco, and I thought - I bet that's Rino Hugo. I looked for a tag - and I was right!! It was a wonderful really long lasting bouquet!!
Thanks Carol - Buxom Beauty is a good rose, I love the fragrance! Rina Hugo is very pretty. I can tell it is one that stays pretty a long time, seems very healthy. I ordered both of these roses from Palatine.
