New Rose Bushes

I have been fixing up a part of my front yard that has been neglected for the last few years. A nursery not too far from here was having a summer sale on all their roses in #5 pots for under $11 so I bought 7 new plants to spruce it up. These are pretty large plants so it makes a nice instant rose garden.


Unlabeled 2 (have metal tag)


Strike it Rich

Betty Boop

Purple Tiger

I will take a larger shot once I finish planting and adding the mulch on top.

Chris, what a bargin you found. They all look Great I especially like STRIKE IT RICH & PURPLE TIGER.Hope to see more soon.

RE: New Rose Bushes

Great bargain and an instant garden, you can't beat that!
You have some very nice roses home_grower!


RE: New Rose Bushes

Unlabeled 2 might be the floribunda Cherry Parfait? The coloring and the changes look a lot like mine.

You have lovely roses.


RE: New Rose Bushes

Thanks everyone and thank you for the ID Kate.

They say it will finally drop under 100* this weekend so I might get a chance to plant the last three and enjoy them in the daytime.

The roses are mostly for my wife's benefit but I do enjoy them too. I am more into productive plants. Tomorrow I will return to the nursery and if it's still there I hope to buy a Cot-N-Candy Aprium in a 10 gallon container that's also on sale. I had my eye on it before the sale and if it is still there it will be mine. (insert scarry laughter)

RE: New Rose Bushes

Your wife must be very happy. I hope you got the plant you wanted.

RE: New Rose Bushes

Home Grower,
Your roses look so promising!!!
I wish you all the luck with them. :o)

RE: New Rose Bushes

Great looking roses!! I agree with Kate on #2 being Cherry Parfait - looks just like mine as well.


RE: New Rose Bushes

Wonderful assortment of roses.

An instant garden is wonderful

Great pictures


RE: New Rose Bushes

Thanks all. I did get the tree I wanted on sale and it was the last one. I like Pluot's so much I bought a Dapple Dandy tree the day after eating one. I have been thinking about getting an Aprium as well. I picked it up today. It's a Cot-N-Candy and looks very healthy.

I got a nice bonus today as well. The Strike it Rich actually has two plants in one bucket. You can see it in the picture above on the lower left. the second buds hadn't opened up yet until today. I looked down at the soil and there are two seperate roots in it. The second looks somewhat like my George Burns.
