Nimbus is gorgeous, I love those pointy petals. Heather Austin is beautiful too. Is it very tall for you? How is fragrance?
Thanks for posting.

You have posted quite some gorgeous rose pictures, again!

I love the lavender and mauve colored roses. Nimbus is my favorite today! Can you tell me a little bit more about this rose, since I am unfamiliar with it? Thanks in advance!

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks everybody!

Masha, Heather Austin is of medium height in my garden. It grows strong arching canes of about 4' long. For some reason I never bothered to check its fragrance. I like this rose a lot for its large blooms, normally they come in big clusters.

Christina, Nimbus is new for me. I bought it as a small band from Vintage, have it planted in the ground since spring. The bush grew nicely to about 1 1/2' x 1 1/2'. It blooms a lot for me. The description says 'strong fragrance', but I never had a sniff of it - probably because I had to bend too low :)

What a gorgeous red Grandessa is.

I saw at HMF it's a climber! I had never heard of this one.

Marina, thank you for providing me with more info about Nimbus. Strong fragrance or not I just couldn't get your beautiful photo of this rose out of my head, so I went to HMF and looked at more photos of Nimbus there and I was completely sold. I ended up ordering Nimbus from Vintage Gardens and can't wait to get it and see it bloom in my own garden. Thanks for enabling!

Christina, it is great! I am sure you will not be disappointed with this rose - it is very generous bloomer.
