E. von Schubert blooms in purple cluster with a fantastic wafting scent. Dark-red blooms are W.S. 2000, wonderful old-rose scent that becomes stronger as the own-root matures.

Thanks to weeks-long of July flash flood, lots of blooms. Petals have this pretty-crinkled look when topped with cocoa mulch (high in potassium and manganese).

The lowest red-bloom (child of Yves Piaget) is bred by Robert N. Rippetoe .. it has intense grape and red wine scent. So delicious !! This unknown red rose is one of the most fragrant roses in my 110 own-root varieties, only Comte de Chambord can rival it. Very hardy red-rose, survived 5+ winters below -20 F.

Pink peace is the largest bloom in this bouquet (needs afternoon shade, otherwise blooms fry in heat). Light yellow is Tchaikovsky (bloom well in 4 hours of sun), the scent is yummy sweet candy. Lowest right is Big Purple (takes full sun well).

Strongest scent in this vase is Dee-lish (salmon-pink), Next is Big Purple (raspberry-red). Dee-lish smells like a guava & strawberry shortcake in my alkaline clay, but magnificent Old Rose in neutral-potting soil.

Neil Diamond and Double Delight give largest blooms in hot summer. Austin blooms shrink in summer heat & cluster-blooming with high potassium fertilizer.

Japanese Beetle season. Picked blooms for the vase August 4. Pink Evelyn is my best bloomer in alkaline clay, after Crown Princess Mag (orange), Poseidon (blue), and Lagerfeld (lavender) ... these are continuous bloomers, rather than separate flushes.

Bouquet picked July 20, at 77% humidity. Poseidon is darker blue, lasts up to 5 days in the vase if picked in bud. Lagerfeld is whitish-blue, and lasts 3 days in the vase. Red is Veteran's Honor, lasts more than 5 days in the vase, with a cherry-scent in my alkaline clay.
