Spring has sprung II

Chicago Peace --- on my top 10 for beauty. The peachy tones are more prominent - not being picked up.

Heirloom --- past 2 years has not had the deep color contrast. Looks wonderful with deep purple salvia.

Heritage --- I'm lukewarm on this rose. Probably because blooms shatter oh so quickly.

Pretty blooms! Irisgal, are you sure that's HEIRLOOM? I've never seen one that pale lavender before. Is it a sport?

RE: Spring has sprung II

Avia, what a cute picture with the shape of the melting snow and that bright yellow daff. popping thru.

No Beth, I'm not sure. Here's the flower when I bought it.
Could it be 'Paradise'? I'll root around to see if the tag is there.

RE: Spring has sprung II

I was actually thinking the same thing regarding the Heirloom. The next image does look more like Paradise.


RE: Spring has sprung II

The last picture sure looks like Paradise. Love the colors!!

I agree with you about Chicago Peace - I don't keep roses around without scent - but the scentless Chicago Peace is one I'll always have - the flowers are just THAT beautiful!!! Your picture is just lovely!!

RE: Spring has sprung II

Such a vision--of spring-to-come (I can hope). That Chicago Peace is wonderful!

Haven't even arrived at the daffodil stage yet. Charming winter daffodil pic, Avia.


RE: Spring has sprung II

OK. Must be 'Paradise'. I get the two mixed up and cannot locate a tag. Thank you for straightening me out. And thank you for the nice comments.

The yellow daffodil looks great after 'Heritage' so I am going to relocate some. The common pale, multi-bloom one does nothing for it. Out!

RE: Spring has sprung II

Hmmm. The first picture of the mystery purple looks like Stainless Steel. The second, Paradise. LoL. Can you get a shot of the leaves Iris_gal? It'll be much easier to identify with a shot of the leaves. :)

RE: Spring has sprung II

Avia Star, Iooking at your Daffy made me smile. I just planted one yesterday, and it brings a lot of springtime joy! haha Along with the primrose and pansys.

Iris Gal, I'm smitten with your Chicago Peace photo. I have one on top of my washing machine ready to be planted this spring! Life is good!!

Thanks for sharing. :o)

Lovely, Iris!

Avia, I'd be thrilled if I had a daff open here. Mine are just starting to poke up out of the ground.
