You are the Queen of unusual roses!!!

My absolute favorite is the Budatet whatever one :) Gorgeous!!!

Sultry looks so lovely - Does it have fragrance??

Princess de Monaco is really, really nice. I just love the regalness of the color and shape. So aptly named!!!

Lili Vidri - another mauve I haven't heard about. Really beautiful! How's the fragrance?

I just love the color of your Hot Cocoa!!!
Fabulous roses - thanks for sharing!!

I agree with" Canadan rose", you are the Queen of unusual roses.
The October colouring is deeper, more intense .
I love CATHERINE DENEUVE and HOT COCOA and all others, but
SHEILA MACQUEEN is suffering.

Awareness and all the others are lovely.

80 degrees out? And we had our first freezing temps the other night--life isn't fair! : (

Hey thanks you guys! Yeah I love the unusual and hard-to-find varieties.

Carol, I got that BUDATETENY from Cliff a yr or so before he closed up. It's a Hungarian bred rose, and very interesting with all those petals. I can't remember if SULTRY has any scent or not. Now LILA VIDRI does. She's yummy! You might have heard of her under a different name. Somehow when she was imported to the US, whoever imported her, got the name messed up as I recall. She was first sold under the name LEILA VERDE.

Sara-Ann AWARENESS (aka LADY ABERDEEN) is a really good rose. Blooms frequently and always such pretty form.

Inga, I love SHEILA MACQUEEN. She's one of the oddballs, being a pale apricot that fades to green with a pinkish tinge. That's my favorite stage. And if I leave the bloom on there long enough, it'll turn a pure med green color.

Mmmm... WEDDING SONG is a rose I got at Home Depot as a bagged bareroot over 10yrs ago. Never saw it anywhere else again until a couple yrs ago Hortico began carrying it. This yr has been the best yr ever. It suddenly grew nice and tall, about 5ft, and has had massive blooms. I did take a whiff last week, and I know it had a pretty strong scent, but I can't remember exactly what it smelled like. I really need to start recording them as I discover what they are. LOL

Thanks Beth. It looks to have a touch or originality about it. Guess I'm not as enamored of the 'perfect' HT form anymore. A bit of quirkynes or muddleness suits me. Love the nifty shading going on with VENDEE IMPERIALE. Nice.
