My Roses

I have about 65 roses! My favorite classes are Hybrid Perpetuals, Tea-Noisettes, Hybrid Musks, Old Teas and David Austin Roses.

SIDENOTE: Almost all of my roses have been bought mail-order, which I highly recommend. You can get a much better selection by shopping online and these dealers are reputable and experienced in shipping roses. They come carefully packed to arrive happy to you.

    Thank you, Amie, for the info. you provided on thorns and fragrance.

  2. Geetha February 24, 2013 at 3:59 pm #

    Agreed! I found the info about the thorns very useful, it’s sometimes very hard to find that information. And I love how you so carefully linked each one back to helpmefind, that was so thoughtful. Thank you so much!
    I live in SoCal, San Fernando valley and I’m researching OGRs to plant along my very long white picket fence, interspersed with some lovely and huge Icebergs that a former owner planted.
