Mine and DH both agree, probably on of the few things we agree on, and it is Double Delight.
I like all roses. DR's favorite is Joseph's Coat. Dooley
I'm not sure I can pick just one! This week, my favorite is Hot Cocoa. My HC is always healthy looking, and blooms profusely, it hasn't failed me yet!
Other favorites include Mr. Lincoln, Love, Fragrant Cloud, Marmalade Skies, Queen Elizabeth, oh, I love 'em all.
That rose is a show off Pianolady. I added Mr. Lincoln and Fragrant Cloud this year, also Just Joey, Peace, Blue Girl, and Sonia.
Oh gosh! Just one!!!?? Cant do it!!! At the begnning of spring it was my Chrysler Imperial. But as its gone along, I just dont know!
For dramatic colors, it would have to be my New Years. It changes colors as it blooms.
Same rose two days apart.
For best soft color it would have to be a toss up between my Blue Girl
And Golden Masterpeice tree(also fav rose tree)
Now, for fav climber it would be my Don Juan and Climbing Golden Glow as equals..Love them both!!!!
For form and largest blooms it would be my Chrysler Imperial hands down.
For scent it would be a toss up between The Cyrsler Imperial ,Don Juan (both have very strong scents) and my Perfume Delight (has a very strong classic rose scent, as you would smell in rose lotions and perfumes)When all three are in bloom at the sametime, my whole yard smells heavenly!!!
Fav no fuss rose is my Knockout hands down!Its also my fav foliage because its so dark green which shows of the blooms very well.
Ok....Ill stop!!! LOL I was about to post my favorite minis! LOL I love all my roses for different reasons. I love my Hot Cocoa when it decides to bloom, which for some reason isnt often. I love my Europeana when it isnt spread Black Spot and Powdery Mildew.
I had 2 blue girls and both of them
died .I was just sick over it .Your blooms on yours are so pretty .
Pinkiered, your roses are beautiful. Have you ever tried a product called Bayer 3 in 1 Systemic Rose Care. It is the only reason I am still growing roses, bc until I found this stuff I was about to give up on them. It is concentrated and you mix it, not sure how, DH takes care of that, and water your roses every six weeks with it. It fertilizes, controls pests, and best of all controls the rose diseases. I have a Charisma that I couldn't keep powdery mildew off of until I started using this. And please show us you minis.
My all time favorite rose was Rose Rossi. She and I had a heck of a nice time on our senior trip. DR
Pinkiered, I love Don Juan too, it's my favorite climber.
Have a new one to add today, it finally bloomed, and it's gorgeous. Rosie O'Donnell.
Oh gosh, she is a beauty Pianolady, is she fragrant. Snowfire is a bicolor like Rosie, but the underleaf is white, but is has no fragrance.
OK heres my three minis. Tho I have five in all....LOL I have five ...2 Sunny Kordana, 2 Flush Kordanas and one Peaches and Cream.
My fav largest mini...
Fav littlest mini
Fav colorful mini, PeachesNCream cuz every bloom is different.
Ive always wanted a Rosie O'Donnell. So pretty!
No I havent. Never even hear of it. I use my fingers for Powdery Mildew. I tried some stuff but it didnt work. So I use something called "ol' fashion elbow grease" LOL I hand pick off the infected leaves and buds. My poor Europeana looks soooooo pitiful! It has no leaves! But its working. Where would I get this stuff at? Im willing to try anything with this rose. Its bad for the infections.
Pinkiered, I get it at WalMart in the garden center, a blue bottle, make sure it is the 3 in 1.
OK thank you!
I now have 2 roses again .Red Blaze climbing and a Queen Elizabeth .They have blck spots I'm assumeing its a disease .I'm going to get some of that 3in 1 and try it .
