What is your favorite rose?
@Petronius mines my beauty in the back garden..never having a large variety..."A whiter shade of pale"-Scented.
@Gail-Steman, The "A whiter shade of pale" rose is outstanding.
Mines still in full growth..weird for the time of year
@Gail-Steman, Is "A winter shade of pale" rose a floribunda rose?
@Petronius it's a (Peafanfare) and here's the details on the actual rose.

Awards are made annually after plant trials (which may last for one or more years, depending on the type of plant being trialled) at RHS Garden, Wisley and other RHS gardens, or after observation of plants in specialist collections. This is intended to judge the plants' performance for conditions in the UK. These roses are in a dormant state ready for immediate planting. The roots have been dipped in a water retaining gel and are enclosed in a plastic bag to keep them moist. The shoots have been cut back to prevent your rose plant rocking in the wind after planting. A further pruning will be required in early spring. Each plant comes with full planting and care instructions."
I like the Chartreuse de Pame Rose.
It's a nice close petal rose but the one at the top left caught my eye with burgundy tips with yellow or white centre, now that is an eye catcher.
I have two favourites....
Iceberg and Hot Chocolate
Two very nice roses and I like the Hot chocolate in "Bare-root"
