A couple of current beauties

This is the first flush for Lyda Rose -- after getting cut back hard this past winter.
In its 3rd year it is starting to come into its own.

Here is a shot of a new mini I am growing, Hello Gorgeous.
My plant is just a rooted cutting -- but I got this photo of a mature plant at an exhibitor friend's garden yesterday.

I am propagating Lyda Rose if anyone is interested in a rooted cutting of it.
I won't have any rooted cuttings of Hello Gorgeous until next year.

Lovely!!
Lyda Rose looks so sweet and happy. Is it similar to Ballerina?
Lovely color for a mini!! Don't remember seeing a mini that color before (not that I've seen very many LOL) . Lovely color for any rose - not just for a mini. :)

Carol--
LYDA ROSE isn't a mini -- its actually classed as a shrub.

And, yes, it does have some of the look of BALLERINA.
But I'm partial to LR.
Plus it blooms over and over all season -- well into the Fall for me -- unlike BALLERINA that only gives a big spring flush here.

If you want to try growing it just let me know.
It propagates well for me and I can save one for you.

No, that's okay - I can only grow roses in pots (glacial till all over yard), and my garage is all full with roses :) But thank you very much.

The rebloom sounds like a BIG plus!!

That's a wonderful picture of Lyda Rose with part in shadow and part in the light against the grey of the stone. It has that beautiful appleblossom color on the petals.

Thanks everyone for the kind words.

Yes, LYDA ROSE is one of my all-time favorites: sturdy plant, blooms on and off for a long season, a top rose for part-shade and the bloom clusters are magnificent.
