Excellent. Just wonderous.

RE: Some of my Clements Roses

I love these roses. The Clements roses have not been on my radar except from your posts, but you are definitely putting them there. I love them. Is New Orleans a Clements? It's very pretty, very hot color.


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Awesome photos. Your roses are outstanding.


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Just fantastic roses. You sure can grow some real beauties. I do hope the JB don't come near your roses this year.They are just so beautiful. Thanks for sharing them with us.

Oh Olga you have outdone yourself with those beautiful rose photos, I love those extreme closeups, I feel like I could stick my nose into anyone of them and come away smiling for days.

They are beautiful.

RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Thank you very much for support and kind words.
Patricia, to the best of my knowledge, New Orleans is Clements. I checked the registration. That was the main reason I bought it. I just got it in May, it has many buds and just one open bloom so far. So far it is under evaluation. Color is nice, better then on the photo. Fragrance so far is mild, but it is a first bloom on the young plant.
Thanks again.
Olga

RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Olga,
Beautiful pictures as always!


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Beautiful photos! I can't wait until my Louise Clements is as big as yours.


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Beautiful photos, Olga -- as usual. I'd love to know more about Magnificant Perfume and Fragrant Masterpiece, as I've never seen either one "in person." Which is your favorite for fragrance, color, bloom durability and bloom frequency? They are both lovely, but I'm SO short on space. Thanks.


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

That really made my day. What wonderful roses. I only wish I could see them in person. Your yard must be like heaven!


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

WOW! And fragrant to top it all!


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Olga, these pictures (and the roses themselves) are not only gorgeous, but beautifully grown. You are obviously an outstanding gardener. I'm sure I could grow the same roses, but they'd never look as good. Thanks so much for sharing.


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Thank you for posting these, I've been enjoying your other posts as well.
We grow Louise Clements too so I especially appreciate seeing how big
yours has gotten. The rest of our Heirloom babies are doing great too.


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

you are a dangerous enabler olga, just gorgeous!


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Olga--so glad someone helped give the Clements roses the exposure they deserve. I started with The Impressionist a couple of years ago and have babies of Star of the Nile and Louise Clements. Your photos are smashing! I'd like to find out more about Robert Clements which looked appealing in the catalog. Dan


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Your pictures are awesome. I have Louise Clements on my Wishlist!!!


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

When I saw this post I said "Yay", well I said it a couple times. Olga=enabler. I could keep my nose in Frag. Masterpiece. Your pictures are magnificent. I have four of those first ones and I love Louise so much.
Thanks for the lovely roses.

Carla


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Olga, the Clements should pay you royalty fees for all of the roses that you sell for them. (I'm serious)

Simply beautiful. Thank you! Dawn


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Olga, you are responsible for my getting Louise Clements. Now I wish I had gotten Magnificent perfume. I just love your photos of that rose. Same is with fragrant masterpice but I am not crazy about strong myrrh scent. Your pictures make me forget that fact.
The most modest but most powerful enabler is Olga, IMHO.


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Olga these are really lovely. Magnificent Perfume made me wan to run to order it. I haven't gotten anything from them in years. The roses I do have I really love. They were experimenting with climber for a while. I have Cherries Jubilee and The Kings Rubies. These are both unusual, beautiful roses. I wouldn't be without Louise Clements.


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Olga, do you have favorites among these roses? I have and love Morning Has Broken and Louise Clemments. If I could have only two more, which should they be? Thanks for posting these beautiful pictures.


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Olga, looking again your photots of Louise Clements are breathtaking.
Pam, Frag. Masterpiece is pinker than Mag. Perfume and smells DIVINE.

Carla


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Thank you very much for your kind responces.
Annie, if I have to add just two I would add Star of the Nile and Magnificent Perfume or Fragrant Masterpiece. They are very different. It all depends on what you want. Magnificent Perfume is a moderate size bush for me. Fragrant Masterpiece is a BIG rose, probably best to be grown on a pillar. I just grow it like a really big bush.
Ialso really like my new New Orleans. It blooms non stop so far, fragrant and very cheerful.
Carla, I love FM fragrance too. It is wonderful.
Thanks again.
Olga

RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Thank you so much for posting these! Not much about these on the Heirloom site or HMF...


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Fabulous how did I miss this I dont sign on a day or 2 and this is what happens that fragran Materpiece is a masterpiece and Star of the nile really is a beaut reminds me of a luscious Bourbon bloom on steroids.....yum!


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Olga your garden must be the size of a national park to have room for all these roses :) They are beautiful


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Estomizzy, I wish you were right. My yard is 1/7 of an acre.
Really small suburban lot.
Joe, Fragrant Masterpiece is in its fourth year and is very high on my list of favorites now. Every year it moves higher and higher. It does reminds me of HPs in many aspects. Huge, very fragrant very double blooms, bush shape, repeat that gets better and better with time. Real beauty.
Thank you very much everybody.
Olga.


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

These pictures are too lovely to fall off just yet!

Olga- I so very much enjoy looking at your lovely roses!


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Privet, Olya!
I'm glad, that Japanese beetles finally goes away.
I'm new to gardening.
Love roses.
They bloom perfectly for me last year.
This year I have a few problems, including Japanese beetles.
This is always another year; you can wait for, right?


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

I meant to respond to this post a while back and forgot about it. These roses are fantastic!! I'm particularly fond of Louise Clements. I think I will add that one to my collection next year.


 o

Olga! I missed this post. Some photos are not showing now... they say 'Use the PhotoTime Invite System to generate a link to private pictures.'

RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Meredith, Please check now. I tried to fix the problem.
TreeOracle and Newyorkrita, Thank you very much.
Oksana, JB are not leaving yet. They will be here in big numbers until mid August. I usually have them in big numbers for full 8 weeks. Welcome to rose addiction. Thank you.
Olga


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Those are some of the most beautiful roses I've ever seen. What an inspiration! Those orange Louise Clements are a MUST HAVE. I wonder if I can get them to survive in our frozen tundra? Please, please post more in the future. Monika

Amazing roses !!! Wish I had more room in my garden...because I want every rose you posted :))


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Oh,no! Now they are all gone, LOL! Not found. Thank you for trying :) I know I wouldn't mind a new post or a link. You're pictures are awesome, and it's hard to find pics of Clements roses. But don't let me be greedy if you don't have the time, etc ;)


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Meredith, it is something with fototime site now. It is completely down. Please check another time, they all should be visible when the site is up again.

RE: Some of my Clements Roses

I was told by Fototime administration that the problem was firxed. Hope you can see the pictures.
Thank you.
Olga


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

I've had my eye on MAGNIFICENT PARFUME for some time now but your images were the clincher. I'm definately getting that rose next year. If she lives up to her name I'm gonna be a very happy rosarian.

Wow what a beauty! Reminds me of SdlM.


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Patrick, MP does look like SDLM on steroids. But the fragrances are very fiferent.
Olga


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Absolutely stunning, Olga!!! I guess I have to get a few of those, Magnificent Perfume, Louise Clements, and Star of the Nile. Fragrant Masterpiece is such a beauty, but I'm not too fond of myrrh. Great post!

Andrea


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Olga, these shots are SOOOOO beautiful! Makes me think again about taking a chance (in our colder shorter season) with some tiny Clements roses.


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Olga I've picked out the perfect spot. I had some Phlox (var. David) that got fried to a crisp on the east side of my house. Boy was that a bummer. Anyway, that is where I want to put Magnificent Parfume. Just how big does she get? What is the growth habit like? Tall obviously but is she a big floppy monster, a prissy upright Hybrid Tea wannabe, or a nice bushy shrub?

Oh, and one last question. How good is the repeat?


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Wow! You just made my day with these beautiful photos. Thank you for growing them and sharing them with us!! Gorgeous.


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Patrick, when I mentioned that MP looks like SDLM on steroids, I meant blooms mot bush size. My bush is only 4-4.5 feet tall and wide after 3 years in my garden. It is very upright. I would say growth habit is similar to some floribundas, not tall ang leggy like HTs, but also not as bushy as old European roses. In a way the growth in my garden is also similar to SDLM.
Olga


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses1

Sorry, I didn't answer about repeat. It is average. Not a blooming full (has too many petals for that, I guess), but very decent repeat in distictive flushes. Just two flushes during it's first year. At least 5 flushes starting from year 2.


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

SOLD!!!


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

really great shots, Olga

 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Olga, your roses are really magnificent. Whenever I see your posts with photos I find myself looking again and again. Elsewhere, you posted some pictures of your Abraham Darby (with great pruning information too!) that just knocked me out. And this batch of photos: they're all so beautiful. You made my evening. Monday, I am going to go out and brew some alfalfa tea!

Jerome


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Olga,

Your pictures above and also elsewhere on Radio Times and Abraham Darby are incredible. I am ordering both of them for next year. Back on June 18, 2005 you wrote, "I also really like my new New Orleans. It blooms non stop so far, fragrant and very cheerful." Has it continued as a continuous bloomer up to Sept. 29th? Also, how would you describe Star of the Nile in terms of reblooming? Is it continuous or near continuous, or are there pauses? I have Heirlooms 2005 Catalog, but I would be very interested in hearing your actual experience with New Orleans and Star of the Nile.


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Glad to see this thread again. They're all so beautiful and the Fragrant Masterpiece is calling to me with those frilly blooms.


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Olga, you're pictures are truly an inspiration for us newbies. Whenever I look at your photos, I always say to myself that one day, my roses will look like that..thanks for sharing. By the way, do you have a website?


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Thank you very much.
Doug, Star of the Nile is very heavy bloomer for me. A lot of flowers. This one and Louise Clements are bloom almost non stop.
New Orleans almost died from JBs this summer for me. Was completely defoliated, even small branches were eaten. It is recovering now, but it is not fare to ask for a lot of flowers yet. I have to wait until next season before I can comment on it.
Olga


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Don't want this great post with those lovely pictures to leave us just yet, so up to the top it goes from the last page.


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

So glad to see this post has been saved... It is one of the most memorable of the entire year!


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Olga,
I can't say anything more than what everyone else has said.

The only one we have is Star of the Nile, and it is EXQUISITE. I don't have or know of ANY other rose quite like it. It glows and is so special. Ours is only in its second season, but the blooms are incredible.
Now I'm thinking again about Louise Clements.
Thanks so much for posting these pics.

RE: Some of my Clements Roses

OLGA---I'M SO HAPPY THIS POST CAME BACK TO THE TOP SO I COULD ENJOY YOUR GORGEOUS ROSES.

Thank goodness this post was not lost.

Your roses are so gorgeous and all on 1/7 of an acre--AMAZING---

Thanks--Florence


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Olga, please tell me how long it took for your Star of the Nile to get big, gorgeous and pump out the blooms. I planted mine in 2004 and it is still only a foot high, had a tiny but pretty spring flush...lot's of basal growth this year but still sooo tiny. Maybe it just doesn't like its spot? Thanks, Shelley


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Thank you, everybody. Just noticed that this post came back.
Shelley, my Star of the Nile was planted in 2000. However, it reached it mature size quite fast for me, I think it was third year when it became its mature size. It gives me a lot of basal growth every year all season long. Really bushy rose. Probably it just doesn't like the spot as you said.
Florence, your are very kind.
Olga


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

I remember this amazing post from last year! These are beautiful shots! WOW! How is the repeat on these roses? Do they need to be sprayed?


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Glad to see this wonderful post come back to the front page. Great pictures of your wonderful roses! Missy


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Thanks Olga, I think I'll be moving my Star of the Nile to a better spot in the spring. I want mine to look just like yours when it grows up! Shelley


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

I was just looking for this old post and hoping it was still around because of the fantastic pictures and information on Clements roses.

I am expanding the shrub rose section in front and trying to decide on the best choices. I think Quietness for sure. I don't want ones looking to become climbers and want to stick with shrubs. I would like a lot of repeating bloom as they will be in the front were all passersby can see.

Olga- Your information on these roses is priceless.


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

I love this post. I would never have noticed the Clements Roses if not for Olgas lovely pictures. Soon I will be able to look at my very own Clements roses as today I ordered --

Louise Clements
Star of the Nile
Magnificent Perfume
Scarlet Velvet
New Orleans

RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Bump. This post is a classic to me. I would not have any Clemments roses if it wasn't for this. Mine are blooming now and I am so glad that I have them.

Some nice looking roses you have!

Here a Precious Platinum own-root rose I ordered from Heirloom roses. My wife and I were debating whether to get Star of the nile next Spring. After seeing your pictures, we are getting it for sure...LOL

RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Heirloom does not seem to have Magnificent Perfume on their website availability list anymore -- any idea where it can be purchased?

Kathy


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Kathy,

Only Heirloom Roses sells that rose. They probably have none to offer right now, but, will next Spring. Contact them if you wish at: info@heirloomroses.com

I'm new to this forum. I noticed you posted on the main rose forum recently.
Just wondering if you have any great photo's of your roses this season as I really enjoyed your rose show in this thread.

RE: Some of my Clements Roses

How did I miss this post,I mean these are some AWESOME roses. I can see this going to cost me some money. Your LOUISE CLEMENTS and TROPICAL FRAGRANCE are must HAVES. Thanks for posting.

 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Thanks, Rita, for bringing this back up again! It makes me more convinced than ever to have FM and Star of the Nile. I actually had SoTN, but it died in it's pot over winter. :o(

I think Clements roses are very underused, and there should be more out there. I hope Louise will continue to offer these precious roses now that her husband has passed.


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Who's Rita? LOL... I brought it back in the hopes that Olga would see it and post more recent and current pics.
Where are you Olga???

JIM


 o
RE: Some of my Clements Roses

Sorry, Jim! I saw newyorkrita had brought it back up..but that was in 2008! Now I see you were the latest one to bring it up. My apologies.


 o
greenhaven

greenhaven, no apologies needed...lol...

I'm going to get a couple Clements Roses next season.
I see you recently got Sunrise at Heirloom, that should be a bright standout in the garden for you. I may purchase one of those and grow it in a pot. If I can successful figure out to overwinter them.
