Duchesse de Brabant

This rose has been great in our area, prolific blooming and healthy, wouldn't trade her for anything!

Old Garden Rose Goldbusch - another good one, but does get blackspot after blooming.

Wow, all of that since fall. Looks like everything has been there for years. Beautiful flowers.
What is the pink rose?

RE: Pictures

That's amazing! Everything is looking good. What are the tall roses on the far left? There's another tall plant with orange flowers -- what is that one? Thanks for posting!

RE: Pictures

ditto everyone!

Um....WOW!- sooooo jealous of your flower bed!

RE: Pictures

Thank you! The pink rose is Duchesse de Brabant, an old garden rose, and the tall pink is Climbing Pinkie. The orange is a day lily.

No, this bed has been in for a number of years, is now getting established pretty well. Carrie, the blank slate is my side yard, still looks pretty bare! I'm attempting to cover up the ugly chain link fence.

Here's a picture:

We had to cut down two 40' cedar elms in the back yard due to losing rather large limbs in our winds a few years ago, and I sure miss the shade, but it opened up much more light!

Is the established bed the one to the very back of your yard??? Looked similar to the new one.

RE: Pictures

Yes, Carrie, both the beds are in curved shapes, and we had some work done on drainage problem in the back yard, plus we need to get our patio covered, but that may have to wait until my husband is feeling better. Always something! I feel like I have the good, the bad and the ugly back there, and the patio area is definitely ugly!

RE: Pictures

Ibheri, I don't believe it is. For me, Goldbusch has long canes that have been creeping along the ground, not up, and kind of peeps through the other roses.

I did look Winter Sunset up and notice that ARE has it, it's beautiful!

RE: Pictures

Forgot to answer that question, Ibheri, yes that is Belinda's Dream, one of my favorite roses for sure!! Most of my pink roses are in that bed, probably need to move a few.
