RE: Would love to see your pretty blooms

Caramel antique. I don't get many blooms out of this bush but they last forever inside or out and are gorgeous. I get usually 4 or 5 flushes with about 8-10 blooms per flush. Crazy huh?? Lol. Judy

Anne Boleyn! Love her!!

RE: Would love to see your pretty blooms

Jim - Love your Mister Lincoln, especially the beautiful bud and fully open bloom. Judy - Those are all gorgeous. Gruss An Aachen is a beautiful rose. I need to figure out how to post more than one picture at a time too, you're not alone in that.

RE: Would love to see your pretty blooms

If your using photobucket just copy and paste all the HTML Codes into one post.
Each pic will have a different HTML code...

RE: Would love to see your pretty blooms

Oh Wow!!!!!
I'm loving this!!!

Brittie - I've never heard of Parfum de Grasse. Looks sooooo beautiful!!! Do you recommend this rose? Does it have fragrance?

Anne Bolelyn and Quietness are stunning!!!!!
They're all gorgeous, and I want to play too. :)
Here's Memorial Day

RE: Would love to see your pretty blooms

Here's Velvet Fragrance. Of course it's red - not the pink shown here. Love the fragrance!!

Woooooweeee everyone's roses are gorgeous! We have the best hobby in the world!! photo imagejpg6.jpg


 o
RE: Would love to see your pretty blooms

A couple more


 o
RE: Would love to see your pretty blooms

I certainly agree prettypetals! These posts are terrible though (lol) because I always end up wanting everything that I see. For instance, what is that peachy colored rose in your last post??

Memorial Day is one that I want. Everyone always has such nice pictures of it! And Tiffany is one of my favorites. I'm a total fragrance snob, so anything smelly always grabs my attention.

re: Parfum de Grasse- I'm on the fence about this one. It does have fragrance, the blooms are wonderfully gaudy- very unlike anything else I have- and the shiny foliage is disease resistant. The plant isn't especially vigorous though. I've had it for two years, and it's around 3ft tall and less than a foot wide. Maybe it will surprise me next year.


 o
RE: Would love to see your pretty blooms

Hey Brittie!! I bought that rose at the beginning of my rose obsession and it was a no named pot I bought at Lowes. I loved it so much I bought 6 of them. I know what you mean about wanting lots bc of the gorgeous pics everyone post. I'm at my limit but I can always find a spot for one if I need to. Lol. I think this one is Shepherdess.


 o
RE: Would love to see your pretty blooms

Oh, I just love it, and yeah there's always room for one more. :)


 o
RE: Would love to see your pretty blooms

Brittle I've always wanted Yves Piaget. Is it a good bloomer and how tall does yours get?? Judy.


 o
RE: Would love to see your pretty blooms

Everyone has posted some gorgeous roses on here. Prettypetals you have some lovely ones. Carol - I love your Memorial Day bush and every time I see the name Velvet Fragrance I want that rose!


 o
RE: Would love to see your pretty blooms

This is indeed one of the prettiest threads I've ever viewed. I love every one of these roses!

Everything is semi-dormant in my garden--think I'm rose-starved!

Kate


 o
RE: Would love to see your pretty blooms

Me too Kate! I get one flower, and I'm all jumping up and down before snatching it and putting it in water inside. I tell everyone, "do you SEE my pretty flower?" lol

I love Yves Piaget. People talk about its gawky shape, but I really don't know if it's more gawky than a lot of hybrid teas. Definitely not a rounded bush shape though, it's more open vase shaped, so you would probably want to have it mixed in with other things so that wouldn't stand out. The flowers are huge, super smelly and don't even care about the heat. I DO have to pick them early though, because the sun will fade them by the end of the day. My plant is about four feet tall and about three feet wide. It's just now finishing a flush of about 12 flowers- not bad for this weather! There isn't a lot of foliage right now, but that's true of most of the hybrid teas. I haven't noticed any disease on this one.

RE: Would love to see your pretty blooms

Thanks Brittie! I've been replacing some of my older roses that I never want to cut to bring in with ones I absolutely love. English roses!! So if I have a spot left I will def know who may be joining my rose family.
Carol your Memorial Day is gorgeous!!!
Now let me see who I wanna post today. Lol. Can't figure out who this one is but she's pretty!! Judy

Carol


 o
RE: Would love to see your pretty blooms

Carol - I've been back and forth on whether to get Memorial Day for a long time, I've decided I have to have it, you've helped with that decision.

Prettypetals - I love all those softly colored roses, they are so beautiful!

Gorgeous Sara Ann. I really need to try Peace one more time. Your photo is simply gorgeous.


 o
RE: Would love to see your pretty blooms

Sara-Ann - the smell is fantastic - it won me a 1st place for fragrance!!! And the smell is consistently strong.
Here's a bud form:

And here's an open bloom form:
Carol


 o
RE: Would love to see your pretty blooms

Prettypetals - Thank you, hopefully if you try Peace again, it will do good for you, I hope so. Fragrant Cloud is a rose I haven't had very good luck with, but it is a rose I really like, so I'm going to try it again, hopefully with success. Carol - Thanks for more pictures of Memorial Day and congrats for the First Place for fragrance with it. The rose is so lovely, that and the fragrance make it my kind of rose! It is definitely on my list for next season!


 o
RE: Would love to see your pretty blooms

Well, now I MUST get Memorial Day. haha! Cream Abundance is so beautiful. I'm always drawn to the soft colors, but they tend to be really big thrip magnets for me. Still, I buy them. Oh well.

Got a few new ones from my camera. These are recent.

Poseiden

RE: Would love to see your pretty blooms!

Tahitian Sunset


 o
RE: Would love to see your pretty blooms

Brittie - resistance is futile!!! Memorial Day must be yours!! LOL

Love your shot of Poseidon!!
Tahitian Sunset is a rose I've always thought about getting. What is its fragrance like? What do you think about this rose?

Carol


 o
RE: Would love to see your pretty blooms

In general, I like it. I've had it for two years, and don't remember any problems with disease. The foliage is nice, and it continues to bloom in the heat. It has stayed around three feet for me, but who knows if it will shoot up taller next year? Would you believe that I have no idea if it is fragrant or not? I made no notes about it in my hmf journal, so... it's possible that I have never bent over to sniff it! Yikes!


 o
RE: Would love to see your pretty blooms

Brittle don't you just love Poseidon!! I cut mine waaaaay back since it was getting so tall but it's budded up all over. It's such a vintage looking rose! Your pics are great. Judy


 o
RE: Would love to see your pretty blooms

I do, and mine is enormous also! I would have posted a full bush shot, but it was only blooming on one side, sort of low. I don't know how I'm going to manage clipping mine back, because some of the canes are about an inch thick. Geez.

Took this one two hours ago, and it was 96 degrees outside. I don't know what it is right now, because I'm sure not going out there. lol

Rouge Royale


 o
RE: Would love to see your pretty blooms

Wow Brittie an inch thick. Lol. Gonna have to pull out a chain saw!! Heehee!! Rouge Royale looks really pretty!

Pretty sure this one is Classic Woman. My memory is so bad it's crazy!


 o
RE: Would love to see your pretty blooms

Classic Woman is one that I've been eyeballing. She's beautiful!


 o
RE: Would love to see your pretty blooms

How to choose? These are all so beautiful!

Here's Pam's Choice

RE: Would love to see your pretty blooms

Ooh la la loving Pam's Choice. I believe I ordered her one time but she died. That's a beautiful picture of her Redwolf!

This is my first year with Classic Woman but she's beautiful. Not putting out many blooms lately but sure when cooler temps hit she will start popping. Judy


 o
RE: Would love to see your pretty blooms

Heritage, Snow something or other ;) and a red rose that I stubbed my toe on in the grass 3 yrs ago, when I bought my house. Dug up the 1 inch stumpy cane and it's 5foot tall today.

Gorgeous boncrow! Love Evelyn!! Judy


 o
RE: Would love to see your pretty blooms

Thanks Prettypetals! She's one of my faves! All of the pics of your roses are just beautiful.
Sara-Ann I'm glad you started this thread off with pics of your beautiful roses too. I have enjoyed looking at everyone's blooms, I can't pick a favorite because they are so gorgeous. But I do have to say that if you can describe a rose as sexy, that's how I would describe Classic Woman lol. That is one sensuous rose for sure! I may have to have it lol.


 o
RE: Would love to see your pretty blooms

Thanks Boncrow, your Evelyn is gorgeous. I've enjoyed this thread a lot. Everyone has some beautiful roses on here.


 o
RE: Would love to see your pretty blooms

Brittle you have posted some beautiful roses too and I'm glad to see what is doing well in Houston as I only live about 1 hour east of you. I am considering Posidein and yours is beautiful.
Thanks Sara-Ann, my roses have been resting due to the heat so I haven't had many blooms but Evelyn always has at least one bloom for me.

RE: Would love to see your pretty blooms

Tiffany


 o
RE: Would love to see your pretty blooms

The unknown rose I found as a mowed down 2inch cane in the grass :) my favorite


 o
RE: Would love to see your pretty blooms

SDLM -- there is a reason why this is one of the world's most favorite roses! I have been so happy with this one this summer.
