Some of the photos do not display when I click on them. There is a box to the left with a number where the photo should be and a description on the right. I signed out and back in again to see if that would help, it did not.

Lady of Shalott is 4 years old and size in my garden z5a WI is 5'x4'. Almost always has gorgeous blooms on it, and is very reliable. Average annual rainfall 46" here, average to alkaline soil. This rose has been through -26 degree polar vortex and is doing fine. She takes the wind and rain like a champ. I highly recommend it and wouldn't be without it in my garden.

Dark Desire is 2 years old in my garden and huge, with stiff canes. It is 6’2”x5’, this is after I cut it back by a third in July and it grew some more. Beautiful, thick petaled blooms on the end of each cane. I have noticed no balling with rain, only when it dropped into the low 40's at night did one of the blooms fail to open all the way and started to brown. The fragrance is not super strong as of yet. It always has blooms on it. I posted a picture of what the blooms looks like in my z5a WI garden. It would take over the world if I let it.

Lilian Austin (own root) in my garden is 42x50 inches after a full 3 years, with fall blooms of 3.5 inches. z5a WI. This rose has been a surprise in how much I really like her. She starts out with ruffley blooms of salmon/pink and finishes a soft light lavender. It seems to always have some blooms in between flushes and is a low maintenance rose for me.
