Jeff,

Absolutely stunning !!!

I'm becoming very, very fond of red roses and my collection is growing but I have an almost magnetic affinity for roses that look exactly like Disneyland. That, my friend is DDG (I would make the caps bigger if I could :-)

Does GOLD MEDAL often have its edges tinted orange? Love it.

RE: Bounty Of Blooms (Part 6)

Wow! Very beautiful roses! I noticed that several of your roses are grown in pots. You are very successful.I`m about out of room, so I hope to have luck with roses in pots. I can`t seem to quit ordering roses!! Thanks for these photos. Lesley

Absolutely breathtaking, JeffAurora! I am so thrilled with your roses! I always love seeing Mr. Beauteous Lincoln and Julia! with all her bounteous gold! Gem o' the Rockies, Disneyland, Iceberg, Gemini, Moonstone and the first photo of Peace just glitter and glow! They all! take my breath away. Absolutely gorgeous, such perfection! like crystalline-roses! Such magical exhibition-quality blooms, Jeff! I love, love, love your roses.

Thanks all for your kinds words.

Boxofrox: Disneyland can be a challenge here on the east coast. If you aren't religious with spraying it will get blackspot literally overnight. Probably why it's called Disneyland instead of Disneyworld. Definitely better suited for dry climate.

Iris_gal: Gold Medal takes on myriad of colors during its bloom cycle. Some start out with an orange edge then turn yellow and finally before dropping turn almost white.

Lesley/Harold: I do enjoy growing roses in pots. Generally I leave them in their original containers the first year to see how they do. If I'm happy with their performance the next year they go in the ground or into a much larger pot. I'm fortunate to have an unattached, unheated garage to overwinter them in.

I use Miracle-Gro Potting Mix (not the moisture control stuff) mixed with some humus/manure. I throw in a little alfalfa meal and bone meal at the bottom of the planting hole. I've found this, plenty of water (almost daily) and monthly feedings of half-strength Rose-Tone makes them really happy campers. Sometimes I use a foliar spray of fish emulsion and/or seaweed.

WOW Jeff, you've got some beauties!

Can't decide which I like best, they are all so beautiful and you've captured them so wonderfully in your photos.

Thanks for sharing.

Me, too. Harold I had to revisit both JeffAurora's roses and Boxofrox's garden to cheer me up! Whenever one gets very worried and discouraged all one needs to do is visit these beautiful flowers!

RE: Bounty Of Blooms (Part 6)

Wow!!! Those are some of the nicest shots Ive seen of PJPII!!!! Mine is first year, and they dont seem quite as large, full or nicely formed. But the scent is heavenly!!

Same with my Vet Honor. It doesnt look as nice as yours. Very lovely!!

Its hard to pick favs when theyre all so wonderful!! I adore your Barbra Streisand, Iceberg and Black Magic. I think I might want to get Barbra Streisand - especially since we dont get blackspot here.

Lovely, lovely - thanks!

Carol
