This one was a totally pleasant surprise introduction. This is a shrub called Midwest Living. They have it planted on the backside of a bed of Crimson Bouquet, and it's very vigorous, large, and blooming like crazy. Smells nice and has good form for a shrub.

Jim had posted some pics of Outta the Blue and it stoked my curiosity. It's certainly a beauty in person, and the blooms were a lot larger than I expected. My husband's hand is in there for comparison to hold it still in the wind:

By far, this rose bed attracted the most attention from visitors in the garden. Nobody could pass by without stopping & gasping for breath. Talk about a mini with some serious punch! Here's Rainbow's End:

Strike it Rich packs a lot of color into its medium to small blooms:

This was one of my top 3 after seeing it in person. It's Winter Sunset, and it is gorgeous, hardy, pure in color and form, and has no browning or fading anywhere:
