I love this rose for its huge blooms, velvety deep red color and the fragrance which makes it the perfect bedside companion.

Denise - That is very lovely. I really do need to try Oklahoma, since that's my state. Besides Firefighter, I have Chrysler Imperial and just planted Mister Lincoln.

Jim I will have to check the size of that bloom but it was huge. Here is one about to open...just madly in love with my Oklahoma!

I enjoyed all these pics of Oklahoma. I just planted one this spring and already adore it. If the wind ever settles down, maybe I can get a pic of it--2 new buds opened today.

That dark red is wonderful!

Kate
The anticipation must be killing you....please your pictures to this thread. I can't wait to see them.

I'll join!! Here's mine from last year. :)
No blooms so far this summer - we've had rain for almost a month. I'm so sick of it.
I'll post another one of a full bush shot.

As you can see....not as red as yours - probably not enough heat here. But still beautiful.

RE: Oklahoma. My fave red

Okay my last one...forgive all the pictures - but I'm just so anxious for anything rosy to happen here. :)

Finally, the wind quit blowing around here. It's a wonder all my tall larkspur and lilies are still standing!

So here is my new Oklahoma--I just adore those dark, dark blooms. And so big!

This is its second blooming cycle, so I think maybe I can count on it to be rather floriferous. No disease problems since I planted it back in late April. Keeping my fingers crossed on that one!

Isn't it interesting what a range of reds we get, depending on what region we live in. I keep wondering if it has to do with how alkaline the soil is--but I don't really know.

At any rate, all the pics show a wonderful rose. Oklahoma is a winner!
