...and here's a pic for the mystery solvers :) This rose came to me as 'Leonie Lamesch.' As you can see, I doubt that is correct. Any ideas on this one?

I believe your mystery rose is Darlow's Engima.

I can't believe I didn't think of that! Just took a bloom spray off of my Darlow's Enigma, and that looks like what it is. The leaves, buds, blooms, and scent are all the same. Now that I already grow it, I can pass this one along to someone else :)

Thanks Beth :) Diana Krause is a Pioneer Rose. I think ARE is the only place that offers it. You probably can't tell in the picture, but it has very large blooms and almost always has a couple of blooms on it....and its a stipey LOL ;)

Oh!!! Those are lovely!!! So many big huge blooms!!!
My favs are:
Rouge Royale - I just could never get mine to do well here. I overwintered it in the garage...survived every year, but never did much. How does yours do?
Red Eden - heaven
LIebeszauber
Red Headed Stranger!!!! my FAV!!! Oh wow!!!!

Thanks for the lovelies!

So many beauties to choose from. I've wanted Rouge Royale for several years. Yours is gorgeous. What do you think of its rebloom? Except for Frederic Mistral, my Romantica roses don't bloom much. Pope John Paul II is wonderful. They all impress. Thanks for posting these beautiful photos. Diane

Thanks everyone :)

Sorry I'm just now answering the questions about Rouge Royal. I really ADORE the form of its blooms. I have two plants of it and the one in full sun does pretty well (some small BS issues) and blooms about 4 times throughout the summer. Although its not a constant bloomer, the form of its blooms keep it in my garden, and the blooms last for about a week each. My second plant was planted near my R. Rugosa Alba, and has been shaded by the much larger R. Rugosa Alba, and that Rouge Royal only put out one small bloom this whole season...so if you so get it, be sure to plant it in full sun. :)
