I've seen a few threads from the past on here where members posted pictures of their roses all in the same color family, like all pinks, all reds, all lavenders, etc. I love seeing them that way. It's nice to see all of the same color together, it's a good way to compare. I probably have more pinks than anything, I'm going to show a few of my favorites. Would love for you to share yours.

Those are yummy pink pics, Sara-Ann, I especially like Mr. McCartney and Perfume Delight in their little bouquet. They are a perfect color match on my screen.

I'm sorry to cut in on your posts, Ssara-Ann. That's a bodacious Rose de Rescht for sure.

RE: Pictures of Pink Roses

Thanks, Diane. I ordered a Frederic Mistral from Hortico. It should be a good one, if it is an off-spring of McCartney. Hope you have some more pinks to show. If I posted all mine, it would take all night!

Pink is such a common color that I'm afraid this thread will get unbearably long, so I will only post a few of my pinks--but let me say first that the pics above are beautiful! Sara-Ann, you have a way of capturing the light adding a glow to your roses--very appealing.

Mortimer Sackler (Austin)--usually ignored, but actually a very bloomiferous rose with good disease resistance.



Mystic Beauty (Bourbon)--probably my most beautiful bloom.

Here are two of my newest pinks:
Sceptered Isle (Austin)



Pomponella (Kordes)--love those little pompoms!



Eden Climber (Meilland)--I've lamented all summer that this beauty just up and died on me. Finally ordered a new one--just have to have this beauty blooming in my garden!

Hope you enjoyed those.

Kate


 o
RE: Pictures of Pink Roses

Kate - Thank you very much. I love your Mortimer Sackler with all the beautiful blooms and the Sceptered Isle. You and Diane (Nana) are winning me over with your lovely Austins. I will always love my hybrid teas, but I have a feeling that before too long they won't be the center of my rose universe. Your Pomponella is sweet and Eden is a favorite of mine. Your Mystic Beauty is lovely, reminds of SDLM. Thanks for sharing.

RE: Pictures of Pink Roses

These pinks are so lovely--I have a looong list of pink roses to look up on HMF.
Kippy, "mismatched" is an exquisite photo of its sweet pink color. Have any idea which roses it is?
Sara-Ann, I love Meredith's soft pink and perfect petals, and Marijke Koopman also has those perfect porcelain-esque petals, too. Great rich pink color.
Kate, Motimer is gorgeous. Maybe it's his name (remember Mortimer Snerd?-you may not be old enough) that makes him ignored. I would like to learn more about him. I think Pomponella is a real charmer that I've considered acquiring. Does she bloom a lot?
Brittie, what a lovely, sophisticated bloom Liv Tyler is, and Maggie's color is such a rich, lovely pink.
Lynn, I love your photo of Pleasure. What a neat center and perfect pink color.
This has been fun seeing so many pretty pinks-much better than brown. Diane

RE: Pictures of Pink Roses

Sara-Ann, thanks. Yours are beautiful as well. At least if we can't get out into our gardens, we can admire all these lovely roses online. It's a lot of fun & a very pleasant way of spending a cold winter evening indoors.

RE: Pictures of Pink Roses

Nana--there is a story about the rose name Mortimer Sackler. Hope I remember it correctly. Seems there is a very rich guy named Mortimer Sackler. His wife wanted to get him something new and different for his birthday, so she bought the naming rights for one of the new Austin roses--and named it after her husband. If I remember correctly, she paid something like $40,000 for that naming-right.

A unique gift for the rich man who already has everything else, I guess.

On another subject, is it just a coincidence that the pink roses have some of the loveliest shapes in rosedom? Or does pink just somehow show off their excellents forms best? So many of the above pics are wonderfully shaped!

Kate

Beth, Seil and Krista. You all have some gorgeous pinks! Pink Intuition is a very lovely stripe and I love Showtime and Portrait, love them all Beth. Seil - Your Dainty Bess is so lovely and I can't wait until my Marijke Koopman is mature and looks like yours. Quietness and New Zealand are gorgeous, all very nice. Krista - Your Gertrude Jekyll is a standout, they are all lovely.

RE: Pictures of Pink Roses

Sara-Ann, what a lovely picture of Queen Elizabeth. I love seeing the bush shots. It seems like that is all I take. Next summer I want to take more bloom shots! Queen E. was my dad`s favorite rose. I will always grow it in my garden. It was my dad that taught me about roses, their beauty and the joy of growing them. Lesley


 o
RE: Pictures of Pink Roses

Lesley - Thank you. I love the bush shots the most. Right now most of my bushes are newly planted, so that is why I take so many bloom shots. Hopefully my roses are going to make it through this brutal winter (so far they are looking good) and I can have some good spring flush shots. I love seeing your beautiful garden shots, you are so gifted. I'm sure you have some fond memories from what you learned from your dad.


 o
RE: Pictures of Pink Roses

Elizabeth Taylor...a great rose in my KY garden. Good form,no disease, fast repeat, no scent.Thank you, Sara -Ann for your kind words. I believe that we all had an important mentor that led us into growing roses. It was a privilege to work and learn with my dad.You have a lovely rose garden. I am amazed at how healthy your roses are. Here, disease is such an issue. I unfortunately must spray a fungicide . Lesley


 o
RE: Pictures of Pink Roses

I'll throw in a few of mine. The first is the pale pink damask rose, Blush Damask.

Blush Damask-3 photo BlushDamask-3_zpsb0e271fa.jpg


Next is the shrub rose, Lady of the Dawn. It gets rather large, but it blooms well.


Lady of the Dawn-2 photo LadyoftheDawn-2_zpscb00d466.jpg


This next one is one of the better repeating pink Austins, Sir Edward Elgar.

Sir Edward Elgar-2 photo SirEdwardElgar-2_zpseeb764ee.jpg


Next is another of my once-bloomers, Celestial.

Celestial-2 photo Celestial-2_zps0fedb9ca.jpg


Another of my pink once-blooming old roses, Konigin von Danemark.

Konigin von Danemark-4 photo KoniginvonDanemark-4_zps000141a8.jpg


Next is a climber, Hotel Royal. It is gorgeous in the spring, but it doesn't repeat all that well, and it is quite black spot prone.


Hotel Royal-3 photo HotelRoyal-3_zps6dabe157.jpg


Next is the hot pink floribunda, Neon Lights, a bright spot when it blooms.

Neon Lights-2 photo NeonLights-2_zps2e87ea9a.jpg


After many years, this variety is still on the market and still beautiful, Royal Highness.


Royal Highness-1 photo RoyalHighness-1_zps0cd0d7b8.jpg


Last, but not least, is this absolutely surreal picture of what is the best bloom on Cherry Vanilla that I have had.

Cherry Vanilla-5 photo CherryVanilla-5_zps36ef649f.jpg


I hope you like these and find some of them interesting.


 o
RE: Pictures of Pink Roses

Bustopher - You have some lovely pinks there. Really like Sir Edward Edgar and Hotel Royal. Thank you again Lesley. Your Elizabeth Taylor is lovely, seems like I've read good things about it. It is one of many that I have considered. but never tried.
