MY ROSES THAT DIED:
Versigny - planted 2016, died 2017, not a strong plant, bad spot?
Lady Emma Hamilton - planted 2016, died 2017, bad spot?
Michelangelo- Roses Unlimited, didn't make it through the winter, not a healthy plant
English Perfume- from Roses Unlimited, didn't make it through winter, weak plant
Ulrich Bruner- possibly in a bad spot
Sugar Moon- probably in a bad spot, roots, not enough water or sun?
Sachet (mini)
Felicia- planted next to back of the house (West) in bad clay, not enough sun because of house/maple tree
Renae- planted in yard by basketball goal, didn't get adequate care, too much sun?
Madame Alfred Carriere - RRD, shovel pruned 2016- bad plant, terrible black spot, rarely bloomed


ROSES I GOT RID OF:
Aloha (pink)- didn't like its form, vegetative centers, nice glossy foliage though
Viking Queen- nice bloomer, very healthy, but too thorny; sprawling, horizontal growth habit
Quietness- gave it to my mother-in-law and realized it must not have been planted in a good place in my yard because it was GORGEOUS in her yard; took clippings to try and root March 2018 when after she passed away and her house was being sold
Paris Yves St. Laurent- no fragrance, blooms almost too perfect but very pretty, healthy; gave away but kind of regreted
Lady Ashe- pretty bloom but not crazy about the form, much like Aloha, same nice foliage
Comtesse du Cayla - wasn't crazy about this for some reason, I think the form of the bush, too wispy
Graham Thomas- got big and neighbors complained about it, but I kind of regret cutting it down

ROSES THAT HAVE ALMOST DIED BUT I NURSED BACK TO HEALTH:
Boscobel
Distant Drums
Ambridge Rose
Bishop's Castle
Duchess de Brabant (near trees in poor soil, no mulch, still there)
Radio Times- moved to more sun, well fertilized and mulched, looking better
Just Joey- was down to a teeny tiny twig- barely survived but has new growth
Ebb Tide- also down to a twig, looking much better now, doing better/bigger than Just Joey
St. Cecelia
Princess Alexandra of Kent - may be in a bad spot but still blooms, also wasn't well mulched

ROSES THAT DON'T SEEM LIKE STRONG PLANTS FOR ME:
Just Joey- but Iove it anyway
Michelangelo

ROSES I'M CONSIDERING REPLACING:
Ducher - doesn't bloom that much, airy foliage, just not that impressive looking
