Here's own-root Parfum de Paris from Long Ago Roses. About 1 foot tall with solid root.

Savannah ™ rose photo

Savannah in only 4 hrs. of sun. Blooms best with tons of rain. In hot & dry with alkaline tap water, bush gets big but less blooms. Scent is excellent, but color fades in hot & dry. Never see any diseases for the past 4 years as own-root in a no-spray garden.

Solitude ™ rose photo

Solitude blooms are gaudy at first, but more yellow as blooms age. Lasts long on the bush (up to 6 days in the vase). Scent improves the 2nd year to fruity/clove. Gives twice more blooms than About Face as own-roots.

1st bloom of OWN-ROOT Pretty Lady rose, strong scent of carnation with acidic rain. It's very thorny & needs excellent drainage. 5 bloom/buds in 4 hours of evening sun as 1st-year own-root. This rose is worth growing for the large bloom and strong & wonderful carnation scent.

First bloom of About Face as own-root ( round-bush). The scent gets stronger with latter blooms, yummy fruity. Lasts long in the vase. Loves the heat.

2nd-year own root Sweet M, pic. taken 7/31/20. It's 3 feet wide and tall with 15+ buds in 4 hrs. of morning sun. VIGOROUS Sweet M. is six times bigger than own-root Peter Mayle.

Aloha in hot August at 90 F. The scent is green apple. Bush has glossy foliage so it's a water-hog & needs frequent watering. Blooms last long in the vase. Very winter-hardy in my zone 5a, blooms well in 4 hrs. of evening sun.
