Leander rose photo
Rose photo courtesy of StrawChicago Alkaline clay 5a
Leander is low thorn & wimpy as own root and died twice in my zone 5 winter. This rose is best as grafted for height and vigor. The scent is marvelous: strong old rose and musk (similar to Felicia), rather than medium tea. Blooms last long in the vase, up to 4 days. Gave 2 good flushes: spring and fall as 1st year tiny band size own root. Needs protection from rabbits eating its low thorn canes.

Mary Magdalene rose photo

Mary Magdalene has the best myrrh scent among my 39 Austin roses. In the winter I miss its scent so I bought a bottle of Frankincense, and that cannot measure up to Mary's intense cozy myrrh and mystical scent. It's a constant bloomer and is drought tolerant and stays compact & small as 13th-year own root. It's the earliest to bloom in May and the latest blooming in Thanksgiving in my zone 5.

Second year own root Sweet Juliet has an amazing lemon and rose scent and VERY healthy leaves. Rabbits like to eat its leaves. Blooms are smaller than Evelyn but the scent is fabulous.

Bloom is at least 4" across. Scent is strong like Munstead Wood. Good vigor and always blooming as 1st-year own root. Prefer fast drainage and alkaline minerals otherwise it blackspots during heavy rain.

Second year own root Sweet Juliet has an amazing lemon and rose scent and always healthy leaves. Rabbits like to eat its leaves so I had to plant it next to daffodils to keep rabbits away (daffodils leaves are poisonous).

Moonlight Romantica has a fantastic scent, just as good as Golden Celebration but lasts much longer in the vase. It demands lots of rain water to bloom.

This very strong myrrh is a must for any fragrance collection. Among my 160 fragrant own root roses, none can match this unique frankincense and so cozy scent that warms my soul. It reminds of a cozy fireplace and incense in Catholic special mass. Blooms last 4 days in the vase if cut from buds. Mine is 13-year-own root in zone 5, short & compact and drought tolerant.

Carding Mill color changes to orange when the pH is alkaline. It becomes pinkish with acidic rain or phosphorus fertilizer. The scent is myrrh, best in cool weather. It lasts 4 days in the vase. It's a constant bloomer at high heat as well as freezing temp. at 28 F in mid-November in my zone 5a.
