Your best bloomer right now? Mine is Easter Basket.

Here's a good reliable bloomer/rebloomer. Manages to always put out at least a handful of blooms even when the other roses take a break. Seems to like the heat too. And has very few BS problems. Quite a cute floribunda--I love its many shades.

Easter Basket


What is your best bloomer blooming in your garden right now?

I just snapped this pic. Double Knockout is our best bloomer right now but to be fair I am trying to rebuild our garden with better BS resistant roses and our other roses are younger yet. So this probably doesn't count...lol

It's looking good, Jim--especially as we go into the dog days of summer when quite a few roses just give up and go semi-dormant until the cooler autumn weather comes around--at least they do in my Zone 6 (Midwest).

Your marigold compete quite well with the neon colors of KO, don't they!

Yes, planting as many BS resistant roses as possible is the only way to go. Good for you!

My new sweet little floribunda, Orchid Romance is doing the best of my roses right now. Its first blooms were tiny, almost looked like a mini rose the first time it bloomed in May. It seems to repeat quickly and each time the blooms are larger. Seems to be a healthy rose, no blackspot. I have to say I am also very impressed with Our Lady of Guadalupe, while it's not blooming right now it seems to be very healthy and a good bloomer, also my three Julia Child roses are all setting on a bunch of buds right now, I think I'm really going to like that rose. I love your Easter Basket Rose Kate, it is so pretty. Jim, your Knockout rose looks very healthy and looks good with the marigolds.

Mine would be Cream Veranda!

RE: Your best bloomer right now? Mine is Easter Basket.

These creamy ones certainly are lovely--Cream Veranda and Cream Abundance. Are they a special type that I am unfamiliar with?

Orchid Romance is indeed a sweetie. May she just keep on increasing her blooms!

Hey Kate, Cream Veranda is aka Garden of Roses or Cream Flower Circus. It's a great bloomer all summer. Cream Abundance is a great bloomer too. I think Celeste's pictures got me hooked on it when I first found Garden Web and the rest is history!

Thank you Kate and Carol. Carol, when you said you had 33 buds on your Valencia, that made me jealous, not really! That sounds lovely, I am happy and excited for you, it is such a beautiful rose. The Cream roses are lovely.

Lots of beauties here everyone!

My best bloomer would have to be Love Song.

Mine is Day Breaker. She's such a show off and I LOVE it!!!! She came as a bareroot rose this spring and has bloomed 3x already and is super healthy. First time ever planting a bare root. ☺️☺️

Let's Celebrate has bloomed non-stop all summer. I mean a day has not gone by where there were less than 18 flowers on this plant. I purchased it from Palatine Roses and planted this Spring.
