One of the six roses I received for trial from Tantau and Kordes in spring 2012. This is the only climbing rose among them, the others are all floribundas.
The only word I can find to describe it is "exquisite". I really like the color shadings.
Yes, exquisite is the word. And the delicate shading does add so much to this rose. I love Tantau roses, so it would be wonderful if this rose became available in the US. Thanks for posting the photo. Diane
Lovely photo of a beautiful rose. Looks like a painting.
Thanks for your comments! This is the very first photo I've put up on GW after they made it easier to post pictures. I am not a photographer but I was very lucky with this picture. How and why I don't know but I think it's the rose more than me. All pictures of it are just as good.
I like the pink buds and the white flowers and the delicate stamens. Enchanting!!
It looks nice. Do you have, by any chance, any pictures of the other roses also? How are these new roses performing?
Beautiful, the dark foliage is a nice backdrop for the elegant blooms.
the bustopher, I have pictures of all the trial roses but the quality of the photos is not as good as this one. The Tantau roses are white Alabaster, magenta pink Baronesse, pale pink Pastella and medium pink Mariatheresia. All have done extremely well in spite of our more than usually awful summer.The red Kordes rose Rotkaeppchen has not performed as well but I received it very much later from a friend who'd had more trial roses than she had asked for and had kept the poor Kordes plants in small pots for too long, unsure what to do with them until I took them to her relief. I think they will improve next summer, at least two of the plants perked up very much at the end of the season. Pastella:
Mariannese: I love them all. Thank you.
I'm impressed with your collection of OGR and your desire for taking care of so many of them.
Thanks for sharing.
