Caramel antique. I don't get many blooms out of this bush but they last forever inside or out and are gorgeous. I get usually 4 or 5 flushes with about 8-10 blooms per flush. Crazy huh?? Lol. Judy

Jim - Love your Mister Lincoln, especially the beautiful bud and fully open bloom. Judy - Those are all gorgeous. Gruss An Aachen is a beautiful rose. I need to figure out how to post more than one picture at a time too, you're not alone in that.

Prairie Star, above, is slow going this year but we love these roses when they succeed.

Aloha, above and below, is finally taking off after 5 years!

Below is our third try at Ebb Tide -- cold, critters or chaos did the first two in -- I think we finally have a permanent resident.

Brittie - La Porte, TX 9a

I certainly agree prettypetals! These posts are terrible though (lol) because I always end up wanting everything that I see. For instance, what is that peachy colored rose in your last post??

Memorial Day is one that I want. Everyone always has such nice pictures of it! And Tiffany is one of my favorites. I'm a total fragrance snob, so anything smelly always grabs my attention.

re: Parfum de Grasse- I'm on the fence about this one. It does have fragrance, the blooms are wonderfully gaudy- very unlike anything else I have- and the shiny foliage is disease resistant. The plant isn't especially vigorous though. I've had it for two years, and it's around 3ft tall and less than a foot wide. Maybe it will surprise me next year.

Hey Brittie!! I bought that rose at the beginning of my rose obsession and it was a no named pot I bought at Lowes. I loved it so much I bought 6 of them. I know what you mean about wanting lots bc of the gorgeous pics everyone post. I'm at my limit but I can always find a spot for one if I need to. Lol. I think this one is Shepherdess.

Me too Kate! I get one flower, and I'm all jumping up and down before snatching it and putting it in water inside. I tell everyone, "do you SEE my pretty flower?" lol

I love Yves Piaget. People talk about its gawky shape, but I really don't know if it's more gawky than a lot of hybrid teas. Definitely not a rounded bush shape though, it's more open vase shaped, so you would probably want to have it mixed in with other things so that wouldn't stand out. The flowers are huge, super smelly and don't even care about the heat. I DO have to pick them early though, because the sun will fade them by the end of the day. My plant is about four feet tall and about three feet wide. It's just now finishing a flush of about 12 flowers- not bad for this weather! There isn't a lot of foliage right now, but that's true of most of the hybrid teas. I haven't noticed any disease on this one.

Prettypetals - Thank you, hopefully if you try Peace again, it will do good for you, I hope so. Fragrant Cloud is a rose I haven't had very good luck with, but it is a rose I really like, so I'm going to try it again, hopefully with success. Carol - Thanks for more pictures of Memorial Day and congrats for the First Place for fragrance with it. The rose is so lovely, that and the fragrance make it my kind of rose! It is definitely on my list for next season!

In general, I like it. I've had it for two years, and don't remember any problems with disease. The foliage is nice, and it continues to bloom in the heat. It has stayed around three feet for me, but who knows if it will shoot up taller next year? Would you believe that I have no idea if it is fragrant or not? I made no notes about it in my hmf journal, so... it's possible that I have never bent over to sniff it! Yikes!

I do, and mine is enormous also! I would have posted a full bush shot, but it was only blooming on one side, sort of low. I don't know how I'm going to manage clipping mine back, because some of the canes are about an inch thick. Geez.

Took this one two hours ago, and it was 96 degrees outside. I don't know what it is right now, because I'm sure not going out there. lol

But I do have to say that if you can describe a rose as sexy, that's how I would describe Classic Woman lol. That is one sensuous rose for sure! I may have to have it lol.

All these photos are so lovely! They make me very impatient for next spring, and for my tiny roses to be one year older (and bigger)

Prettypetals, I must say that the gorgeous soft apricot rose you posted a photo of & said you don't know the name of looks an awful lot like Jude the Obscure, one of David Austin's english roses! Does it have a strong, citrus-y scent? If so I believe that's it! Such a beauty, it is one of my favorites!
