My Mid-October Lovelies

Hey everyone! The roses are starting to slow down for the season so I thought I'd do a little post for you all. If I keep getting blooms, I'll keep posting!

Lovely blooms and photos.
The dark background makes the roses outstandingly beautiful.

Hello! Gorgeous pics. I love that Stainless Steel! Help Me Find lists it as hardy to zone 7; how's your success been with it here in zone 5? Do you give it winter protection? Where I can get one? :)

Gorgeous show roses.

Someday I need to see Paradise in real life--can't decide if it attracts or repulses me--

Thanks everyone! It's been a crazy first year exhibiting! I recently wrote an article on winning my first district queen and my experiences exhibiting my first year. If any of you are interested in reading it here's the link:

Redwolfdoc-This is my first year with Stainless Steel so I can't speak from experience about overwintering. I do however, have many rose friends in the area who have grown it for many years in zone 5b with no problems. I got two this year and fell in love. Perfect form. Perfect scent. So I just ordered two more for next year. I believe Weeks is carrying it this year. I ordered mine from Regan's Nursery.

Kate-Paradise is one of my favorite mauves. It's a pretty heavy bloomer and always has something in the works. If you like purples, I think you'd like it. :0)
