Hi Sonya, as you've correctly guessed, neither is Russelliana nor The Dark Lady.

I grew Russelliana in my former garden where it grew up a north facing brick wall. It's a once flowering plant but to my eye, so beautiful. Its blooms little bigger than a 50c piece and its sepals have the appearance of a Moss rose.

Here is a pic of Russelliana taken in my former garden in 2007:

As to The Dark Lady, there is no mistaking her, she is a huge bloom, I once counted 200 petals on her, the bush photo shows her growing across the bed from Russelliana in my former garden. I now have three plants of her in my new garden (one which is a tall standard still waiting to go into the ground) ....

Both your roses look charming and it looks like you've got plenty of room to forgive their forged passports Coming up Roses

Hi Sonya,

I have edited your post so the images show up and thought you might be needing a little assistance with getting them to show.

You are entering the images as a link instead of inserting the images. This is easily fixed. When you copy the address (url) of your image type this code before you paste it:

Code:
[img]

Then put your cursor after the code and paste the url you copied. Then type this code directly after it:

Code:
[/img]

Your final image code should look like this:

Code:
[img]url pasted here[/img]

Hope this helps some.
