Ginger Rogers looks like she's dancing.

How do you like Sally Kane? Very pretty.

Thanks everybody! GINGER ROGERS is a great rose. She grows to about 5-6ft tall, if I let her go, and blooms pretty often. The blooms blow kinda fast tho. But the color is always so vibrant. SALLY KANE is interesting. She's a very strong grower, and peaked out (in a pot) at about 4ft. I think she might be a cool-weather rose. She does ok in my 100+ temps, but she's much happier in the cooler fall temps. The color changes too. She was much more of a greenish-cream in the summer, and has turned this yellowy-apricot now that it's cold. MAGMA is a good rose too. Also has more vibrant color in the cooler temps, but does great in the 100 degree temps too. Verrrrry long-lasting blooms, and nice tall plant (5ft).

Beth, I can totally understand that you are not too happy about that the roses are gradually shutting down :-(. But you will have all these beautiful photos to look at in the winter time :-)!

Of course you are showing some roses, again, that are new to me. I really love this!

My favorites are Elle, Lois Wilson, and Sally Kane.

Thanks for posting!

Beth, they maybe getting fewer and fewer but they are getting BETTER and BETTER. My picks are LOIS WILSON & GINGER ROGERS. Keep them coming for as long as you can always love viewing your roses.
