RE: Show off your Orange/Apricot Roses, Part II

I know I posted too many pictures on Part 1 but I couldn't stop. So, now for a few that
I didn't post that are still very much favorites.
I could almost say, I never met an orange rose I couldn't love. Not totally true as I did SP some.


Outrageous


Lifelines, a mini climber


Tuscan Sun, pretty at all stages


Westerland, climber


Palmetto Sunrise, a mini that can be yellow or orange, depending


Evelyn, who really wants to be a climber here


Joseph's Coat

I'm glad you posted some more here. Outrageous is outrageously beautiful, even if orange is not my favorite color. And Evelyn always comes out as a winner, doesn't she! I rather like Joseph's Coat. Do you have larger pics of it climbing--the whole bush, I mean? That one definitely peaks my interest.

Sure, here it is in April 2010,

and, another April

It has one big spectacular bloom and then blooms on and off all summer. It can get some rust here in wet springs. Mine is sunburned on the canes and seems to be declining after many years. I am making a big attempt to revive it this spring with heavy pruning and lots of mulch.

I second that Kathy! Beautiful roses Seil & Robert! I don't know which is my favorite: Shropshire Lad, Sisters at Heart, Hondo, Lady of Shallott...

I just got some cuttings of Tamora in the mail and I'm trying to root them; boy those thorns are something fierce!!! I had no idea they were like that! Thankfully from your pictures, I can see the blooms make up for the thorns :)

SEIL - your pink unknown

Seil, Have you ruled out Comtesse de Provance aka Liv Tyler?

Just looking at all these pictures is activating rose-lust.

No, Iris, I'll have to keep Liv in mind when mine blooms this year and compare it. Thanks!

RE: Show off your Orange/Apricot Roses, Part II

Wow, Robert, I wish I had your garden! I love all of those pictures.

RE: Show off your Orange/Apricot Roses, Part II

Robert, I always love looking at pics of your Austins. Can't wait to get my Lady of Shalott this spring. Should really spice up the color range in my garden, if your pic is at all typical. : )
