FYI, these are all repeats, so those of you who are interested in seeing new ones may wish to skip.

LADY LUCILLE, bud queen supreme at my house. I can't help gushing about this one. (I feel like the tiresome mother, constantly bragging about her two-year-old who already knows all the letters, and can count to 20, and is learning to play the violin.) She is a true late and unlike other lates was not confused by the weird weather. There have been only a couple of blooms so far, but look at the buds! The photo on the left is the scape with the highest bud count - 39! The photo of twins is a bloom from last week, as no buds are opening today.

CIMARRON ROSE, 1st runner up. FFO was June 6 and it has been non-stop since then and no sign of letting up. The (rather terrible) photo on the left was taken this morning, the other 2 photo were taken on Monday. This is a large flower - 6+ inches.

MANDARIN'S CLOAK (new last year) looking good today. Goodness, I didn't realize until I did 'preview message' how similar the coloration is between CIMARRON ROSE and MANDARIN's CLOAK.

CHANG DYNASTY This one in turning into a favorite. Very large and rubbery and every bloom opens perfectly.

Thanks for looking.

That's fabulous bud count and branching on Lady Lucille, especially in a year like this! Is she also a heat buster? Your clump of Cimarron Rose looks gargantuan. How long have you had that one? If you still have that many buds left on it, Cimmaron Rose must be a winner. Change Dynasty is a beauty!

Debra, yes LL is a heat buster, although she is on the east side of a picket fence and gets filtered relief from the sun during the hottest part of the day. CR is gargantuan and was planted as a double fan in spring 2010. The rebloom on CR just extended non-stop from the original bloom. Somehow I think CR just really liked the strange weather this year. As for Change Dynasty, this is the hands down best in my garden of all the Stamile's.
