What's out there now--late September

Roses getting ready for their last fling and responding to miraclegro from several weeks ago. Here is what is looking best today.

Honey Dijon . . . is just beginning a flush. Wish it bloomed all the time. Flushes are huge though.

Black Magic It gets canker in spring and I massacre it during pruning, but it grows like crazy in the heat and is loaded with blooms now. Always has blooms though. Great in heat.

Joshua Bradley is a scrawny plant and doesn't bloom often. Still . . . .

Just Joey with Ebb Tide Neither one a good photo but nice colors together. Both are great bloomers, in large flushes.

Cinco de Mayo Can be spectacular like now. It grows low and wide. Not a spec of disease on any leaf! Perfection.

Chihuly Before and after. Doesn't get ugly as it ages--will be my role model if lucky.

Vavoom In a pot, got really big. Doesn't last in heat which seems to be what we have most of here. Not a favorite, colorwise, either. Cheesy gold.

Midnight Blue In too shady a spot. I think it would be a good performer in filtered sun or in cooler summers. Color is true on my monitor.

I'll try to emulate Chihuly. Don't want to be a cranky oldster. Ebb Tide is really socially inclined! Seems to get along with most everybody! I thought it was so ugly the first time I saw it. Now I have 2 places and it would be good in both.

Our 112 degrees today probably fried whatever was open. Painfully hot.

Lovely, lovely, blooms, but Vavoom will get me every time.

RE: What's out there now--late September

Your roses are looking great, Kath!! Thanks for sharing them.

Lol, Iris Gal. You are so funny! Sorry it's so painfully hot there.

Have a great day, guys! :)


RE: What's out there now--late September

Great roses Kathy. I wouldn't know what to do if my Cinco bloomed like that. They all look beautiful, take care, Judy

RE: What's out there now--late September

Well I have to say my fave is 'Joshua Bradley' altho you say it is scrawny. The pic is spectacular, I really go for the darker reverse combo.

I cannot even comprehend 112 degrees. Here, we start keeling over when it hits 90, because our humidity is always so high.

RE: What's out there now--late September

Great looking roses, Kathy.You certainly have some beauties.I lOve that MIDNIGHT BLUE, AND EBB TIDE. 112 there, huh,We had 112 a few days several years ago, but this year our hottest days was 101.
