RE: looking for blends

Blends are my favorites! Here are several of my favorite Austin blends, followed by several HT blends---since I'm not sure which type of rose you prefer.

Lady of Shalott (Austin)--apricot/gold/hint of pink and yellow.

Molineux (Austin)--changes color a lot. Anywhere from golden yellow with apricot highlights in the center to a crème/yellow/almost peach center.

Munstead Wood (Austin)--my newest love!

Well Being--golden yellow with reddish edges. Handsome blooms.

Love & Peace (HT)--might need some occasional assistance with a fungicide. Gorgeous blooms.

Gypsy Carnival (HT)--love those yellow reverses, but this one does have BS problems. Perhaps Ketchup n' Mustard (or is it Mustard n' Ketchup?) would work better--but I haven't grown it.

Hope that gives you some ideas.


RE: looking for blends

Thanks Kate! Your roses are stunning. I love all types of roses with old garden style being a favorite. As long as it's healthy and beautiful I will start salivating... I have been eyeing Munstead Wood since it was introduced...Lady of Shallot is beautiful too
