Beautiful flowers :)

Post by Admin on 19th November 2009, 23:27

'Cecile Brunner', both the bush form and the climbing form... (this is the climbing form) Are both growing strongly now and flowering their head's off. It's just the most beautiful rose.

This is 'Double Delight' and is a testament to the effect the wrong rootstock can have in the wrong place. The parent plant is grafted onto 'Dr Huey' and is a sad and sorry worthless runty plant here. I budded this one onto a multiflora rootstock and, well, the results speak for themself! This flower is easily 20cm across and the plant is growing strongly and (so far) cleanly.

'Christopher Marlowe' is flowering enmasse now. It has a lovely perfume.

A very common, but under-rated rose IMO; 'Lilli Marlene'. Has beautiful (but scentless) flowers on a strong low bush. One of my favourites.

'Vivid' is an old Bourbon. It makes a large lax shrub and is probably best trained as a climber on a pillar or a fence. Lovely hot pink Smile

More in a minute Smile

'Mary Rose' is in full flight:

Dee, both my 'Leda' bushes are smothered in flowers now and have reached about 1m high and wide so far. You sure you don't want one back... I can't imagine being without it now Smile

'Cricket' is a new mini for me. Totally recommend this little rose. It loves the heat!

'Anemone' has flowered well for the first time since planting it two years ago. Previous flowers have been small and borne very briefly in very small numbers.

My rootstock multiflora... such a beautiful rose in its own right.

Cecile Brunner Clg, definately one of the best climbers.

It gets black spot here but just drops the leaves and replaces then quickly without checking growth. Never without blooms except in winter.

Absolutely beautiful blooms Simon!
Interesting what you've done with double Delight.
I agree with you re Lili Marlene, a feisty little rose.
I wish my camera could reproduce the reds and purples like yours does, but that's an old subject.

when I watch your pics, I hope that the winter will stay away here.
Your roostock multiflora looks too worthwhile for grafting Crying or Very sad

Took a few more over the last weekend:

1. 'Hot Chocolate'... not overly impressed with this rose so far... growth started off strong... now tending to spot.

2. A new one for me; 'Route 66'. Awesome rose with deepest purple ever!

3. 'Maurice Utrillo'. All been said before! Great rose! Healthy rose! would never be without it now.

4. 'Henri Martin'. Moss with the most! Viciously thorny, lovely balsam fragrance to the moss. Photo turned out kinda weird... looks like I used the flash but I didn't Dunno

5. A Frank Benardella miniature; 'New Hampshire'. Nice flowers... ordinary bush.

Jacky, be very selective when aquiring yellow roses for most are very unhealthy. clear medium Pinks are my favourites and seem to be one of the most healthy colours.
