Beautiful! I love your RVR Mystery rose!

RE: Some Pics to Share

The rugosas are stealing my heart. I love the color of the foliage, and I love the mass planting.

RE: Some Pics to Share

I was thinking the same things about the wonderful rugosa leaves. I love all your blossoms. I adore the soft yellow on Pasadena Star

RE: Some Pics to Share

Beautiful pictures, and I too especially like your R Rugosa Alba, its now on my wishlist for next year! Would love to know what that mystery rose is too, it has such a unique shape!

RE: Some Pics to Share

Love the mystery rose, hope someone can identify it for you.
Ouch... those thorn's look lethal.....:>)

RE: Some Pics to Share

Also love your beautiful rugosa hedge; I'm surprised they do so well in Tennessee. It must be colder there in the winter than I imagined. Pasadena Star is a beauty. Is that an older bloom of Ferdinand Pichard? It's usually much brighter and this rose reminds me very much of Honorine de Brabant.

Thanks everyone! I love showing off my roses on here. Its good to know they're appreciated! I'm lucky enough to be in a zone where I can grow just about anything in terms of hardiness. Although, some classes HATE it here (emm..Pernetiana)

Thanks Ingrid :) We do get pretty cold here in the winter. This winter I think out lowest temp was in the lower 20's, but I've seen it get into the teens almost every other winter...the rugosas LOVE it!! :)

Good call on the Ferdinand Prichard was one that was a few days old and ready to fade...he's usually brighter like you said. I think this one had been open for about 3 days before I snapped a picture.

You have such a beautiful variety of roses, Tammy!

RE: Some Pics to Share

Your hedge is really taking on a nice mature shape. It's very lovely. I agree with you about Walferdange. What a pretty shade of pink!

The Hansa hedge has definitly come a long way from the three ownroot-bareroots it was 4 years ago :) It still needs to fill in some, and suckers are helping with that task. I just love the scent of all its blooms right now....and the fall hips are amazing!
