Winners Circle, climber, is gone. Given away. It just didn't do anything for me. Like KO on steroids.

Winter Magic is also a lavender mini but doesn't have as nice a form as Violet Mist.

Wild Plum was my first mini rose and one of my favorites.

Winter Sunset is a Buck shrub with beautiful buds and color but they blow very quickly.

X-Rated, this is my third one. Lets see if it makes it through winter. I love the rose but it is not vigorous at all.

Yantai, lovely creamy yellow mini and a good grower.

Zenaitta, polyantha, if you think you want KO try this one instead. I guarantee it will out bloom it!

So that completes the alphabet. But never fear...I have tons more pictures, lol!

Winter Sunset is a lot better looking than my Pat Austin (nodding head, icky smell). I just love that Winter Sunset's colors - thanks.

Hope you have better luck with x-rated, but was glad to read you have more of these lovely photos for us.
I enjoyed every single "letter".

Seil, I am completely smitten by 'Winter Magic'. I think the color is just to die for!

You have quite a wonderful collection of roses. Thanks for sharing them with us here!

Krista, I can tell you like those hot colors!

Strawberry, I've never been a fan of Pat Austin either. WS is beautiful but it blows too quickly and you don't get to enjoy it long enough.

Thanks, Inga, I'll be posting more I'm sure.

Tammy and Christina, WM has a sort of gray lavender look to it. Always reminds me of the term "half mourning" gray they talk about it those romance novels.

Thank you, Serena.

Lovely pics. Wish you good luck on X-Rated--she's a little beauty.

Thanks, Serena and Naturalchick! Winter Magic is lovely but it fades as it ages and it blows fairly quickly.

Wow!

Thanks, Carol! I got Wild Plum years ago from J&P but Regan's has it. Winter Sunset I got at a local rose nursery, Great Lakes, but they're out of business now. I really miss them a lot!
