Graham Thomas

Graham Thomas

Graham Thomas

I love yellow roses and my favourite of all is Graham Thomas.

Where I live, in the south west of England, it's fairly mild most of the year round. It's now mid November and Graham is still blooming strongly. We haven't really had any frost yet, so there are still lots of buds.

Over the last week we've had heavy rain and strong winds but good old Graham is still blooming away adding a touch of sunshine to the dullest day.

I love taking pictures of this rose, I have rose buds, partly opened blooms, full blooms, and flowers that are almost falling apart, there's always something different to look at.

This is far and away the best rose bush that I've got. It's extra special to me in another way too. The plant was a gift from my parents when we moved to our house 11 years ago. Last year I lost my mum to cancer and so when I look at this rose bush it reminds me of her. She was always cheerful and brought sunshine into our lives too.

World's largest rose bush/tree

Hey AJ,
(my email is down so I'm using this to contact you before I forget)
I'm working on a page about Tombstone for my site and was reminded that Tombstone has the world's largest rose bush. It was planted in 1885 and is more like a rose tree now.

Thought you might like to see it if you haven't yet...

Rosarium Uetersen (also known as Seminole Wind)

by Annette Ejstrup
(Denmark)

David Austin rose: 'Summer Song'

David Austin rose: 'Summer Song'

It is a short climbing rose from Kordes in Deutchland. It is a wonderful rose, very free flowering in a strong deep pink color. Later silvery pink, very large, fully double, ruffled petals.

The rose is healthy and weather-resistant. It has a lovely sweet fragrance, that I just love. Very easy to propagate from cuttings.

**************
*editors note: I see this rose is bred by Kordes. That alone would be good enough for me to try it - they are responsible for a great climber named "Alchemist". That has a very similar form and flower shape to Seminole Wind. Pale cream, with petals edged in dark apricot. And they grow in nearly any climate. You can see more information on Seminole Wind here.

Love Potion

by Mary Kay
(Buffalo, NY, USA)

Love Potion Floribunda

Love Potion Floribunda

This is Love Potion which I obtained from Heirloom Roses. I highly recommend them especially if you live in a cold climate. I am near Buffalo, NY and their roses really survive our winters quite well.

The rose is a floribunda with a real two tone color to it. I really didn't expect to get such a pretty pink rose that is pale pink on one side of the petal and deep rose on the inside. The fragrance is great and it is very disease resistant. In fact it was growing next to bee balm that got a fungus and nothing happened to it!

Like all roses..lots of compost and watering but look what I got..and a lot of them too.

Yellow roses symbolize friendship, affection, and gladness...

And as what it symbolizes my inner self, I just love looking at these roses every time I'm stressed, lonely and even happy. It just simply uplifts my inner mood. Not just because of the color, but the flower itself.

The Queen of The Carolinas

by Phantom
(N.C.)

The Queen Elizabeth rose is a flower not typically grown in the Carolinas because of the popularity of other breeds like the Showbiz and Red Masterpiece roses.

Being so uncommon, they stand out among gardens, and add a beauty that is priceless. Very hardy, they grow well in a warm summer and a chilly winter, and produce a bloom with a luscious blend of carmine and dawn pink. They are fairly fragrant too, and bring in many helpful insects like bees and bats, which help in the pollination.

Based on the beauty of the flower and the growing conditions, the Queen Elizabeth is my number one pick when it comes to roses.

White roses
by: Anonymous

I like white roses as well. Iceberg (climbing) is hard to beat. There is a fairly new white rose called Pope John Paul II which I want to plant next season.

We can't get it here in New Zealand yet (as far as I know), but Im looking forward to it being available in the plant nurseries next spring.

strawberry ice

this rose, strawberry ice,is one i found in the christchurch botanical gardens last summer.

A plain single rose, it still has a lovely scent, and takes up very little room in the garden.

I have seen another rose by the same name (bordure rose, I think) but that is something totally different.

This one seems to only grow about 2' or so....the other rose named strawberry ice is of a larger habit, and is a much paler pink.

Cecile Brunner, pink polyantha rose

by Susan
(Australia)

Cecile Brunner Rose

Cecile Brunner Rose

This pale pink Cecile Brunner rose grew prolifically in my Far North Queensland (Australia) garden. I loved it for that. Usually I prefer scented roses (this one is not scented) but it was hard not to love this rose for its perfect buds and showy sprays.

Love your site, by the way ...

***Editors Note: Cecile Brunner (also known as Madam Cecile Brunner, and the "sweetheart rose")is a small pink polyantha rose, bred in 1880.

There is a climbing sport, know as (strangely enough) Climbing Cecile Brunner. You will sometime hear this referred to as the "buttonhole rose". This has a mass of small delicate pink blooms, as you can see in the photograph on this page.

The lack of scent is a shame, in my opinion, but I would never let that stop me from growing it. I have a lovely specimen here at my home, and it's one of the first roses to bloom each year (the Banksia is always first to flower).

Thank you for contributing. AJ***

Thanks for the Tips
by: Susan

That's very interesting information, AJ. Thank you! I guess I must have taken my wood from an old climber :) cos I sure 'struck' it lucky with my Cecile Bruner - Lol!

I'll have to try out your methods and see if I can strike a few other varieties.

striking cuttings is easy
by: AJ

Its actually very easy to strike cuttings, if you do it right. There is a page on this site that gives some of my methods, but in brief, here is how to do it.

1.Take 1 year old wood...thats last seasons growth, if possible. About 6-10" long, and as thick as a cigarette is about right.

2.Do the cuttings as close to the full moon as possible. Strike rate WILL go up if you do that.

3. Put a couple of asprin (Not disprin) into a vase of water, and let the cuttings sit in that for a few days.

4.Plant them out in a well drained position, where they wont be disturbed. After a few months, you will they have either turned brown and dry (they have died) or there is fresh green growth on them. Transplant the healthy ones at the end of winter, when they are dormant.

Autumn is the best time to take cuttings, in my opinion. Leave them over winter, and they will be ready to plant out in around 4-5 months.

One more tip. Climbers tend to be easier to strike. And the older the variety, the easier, as well. So an old climber is bound to be foolproof! ;-)

It's easy to strike, too
by: Susan

You are welcome for the contribution, AJ. Thank you for the additional information about this rose. I didn't know all that you said :)

I forgot to mention this rose is also easy to strike from a cutting. It is the only rose I have ever been able to strike, in fact!

Alister Stella Gray

by Pj
(australia)

Alister Stella Gray is my very special favorite rose , with her graceful habit of falling noisette blooms and a scent that is soft and romantic . She blooms all the way through to Autumn . If you love roses you wont go past Alister Stella Gray once you have seen her in her full splendour .

editors note. This rose was my first introduction to the noisettes. i had a bush growing up and around the bedroom window...I believe it was over 60 years old.

Yet it bloomed prolifically every year, and the whole garden would be perfumed on a warm summers evening.

Anyone thinking of trying the rose, I recommend it! Definitely one of my all time favorites.

Some say that this lovely rose flowers repeatedly, but we've grown it for several years here in Central Italy and each time have had one, although extensive, bloom. It's a keeper, just the same.

I wish I had the ability to send you a picture of some of the roses I have taken from my bush. They are about five inches across, deep red and smell heavenly. Just hope the Japanese Beetles aren't too bad this year because they love my roses. This bush is about 10 years old.

A lovely red climber - Guinee

Guinee climbing rose

Guinee climbing rose

Guinee is a great red climber. It will grow almost anywhere, and has great fragrance.

Red roses are definitely my favorites, climbers especially. This will train over an arbor or pergola very easily.

The other thing I like about this red rose, is the way it's bursting with scent. It also takes very well from cuttings, as most of the older rose types do. Modern roses are so highly bred, they often fail when you try to grow them on their own roots.

This was bred back in 1938, so has been around for a long time, yet isn't seen that often. That's a shame, as it really is worth having in any garden.

Climbing Roses are one of my favorites
by: Ann

Climbing roses are really beautiful. My grandmother had a trellis entrance into her back yard for as long as I can remember. Going through that trellis when the roses were in bloom was so nice because of the awesome fragrance!

Love My Wild Roses

by Jane
(Ontario, Canada)

I have always had trouble growing roses at my home.

I am told that my Aunt and Uncle who used to live here for years, always had the most beautiful roses in their gardens. My Aunts' name was Rose, and when she died, my uncle literally pulled out every rose on the property. There have been none since, and I can't seem to make them grow, except for the wild roses. They come in faithfully every year and are beautiful.

So many people don't like them; I know they can be pesky and spread, but they are lovely just the same.

A florist who used to live beside me once told me
roses have to be bought from a nursery only if you want good ones. Well, I don't know just how true that is, but in the meantime I will gladly settle for my pink wild roses.

My Favorite, The Lincoln Rose

by Morgen

Mr Lincoln, dark red hybrid tea rose

Mr Lincoln, dark red hybrid tea rose

I love the Lincoln Rose. It's a perfect shade of red and it smells like a rose very strongly. I've seen the floribunda version only.

I love the scent. It's great in potpourri.

***Edit Note: The Mr Lincoln rose (also knows as Mister)is a dark red, large flowered Hybrid Tea. I'm not aware of a Floribunda by that name.

It is extremely well perfumed - a strong Damask type fragrance. There is also a climbing sport. Mr Lincoln is very prolific, easy to grow, and very vigorous.

Black Bacarra Rose

by Ann Gobel
(Columbus, OH - USA)

Black Bacarra Rose

Black Bacarra Rose

Hybridizers tried for several years to breed a black rose. About five or six years ago the Black Baccara Rose came into existence. It doesn't have a fragrance, but it's really beautiful.

The petals are velvety and before it blooms it's very dark. As it blooms the edges of the rose still carry the blackish tinted color.

This rose bush grows up to four to six feet tall and it really adds color to your flower garden. Basically in the USA it's grown in the areas of the midwest to the west coast.

I didn't take this picture because they don't grow in my area that I am aware of, but I wanted to share how beautiful it is.

Not such a great garden rose
by: AJ

Black Bacarra is really a rose for the cut flower market, in my opinion. It has little fragrance, and it doesn't seem to get as dark unless it has ideal growing conditions.

While I do like the rose, I feel there are far better dark red roses that you could grow in your own garden.

One of my favorites is Blackberry Nip. It's not so easy to get, but if you can find it, then it's definitely worthwhile planting it.

AJ

grow?

Do you know if the Bacarra Rose can be grown in NC? My room mate is CRAZY about them. I know you said that they are mainly grown in the west and such... but like i said if i could grow some here i would really like to.... ty..

I love all roses, but especially lg. flowered climbers!

by Pam
(Ohio)

My favorite rose would have to be "New Dawn." I love it because it's a repeat bloomer, disease resistant, it tolerates some shade, & is just very healthy. Most of all I fell in love with the very pale pink colour. Also, the 4-inch blooms, moderate fragrance, & medium glossy dark green foliage are very nice. You can't help but be romanced by it.

The American Rose Society rates it "excellent." It is one of the world's most popular & beloved climbing roses in the world. "New Dawn" was the first to get a patent. It's considered a modern rose (1930) because anything after 1867 is modern. It seems every public rose garden I visit has more than one "New Dawn" rose.

The arching canes add to it's beauty. Everyone should have at least one in their garden. It's been a very easy rose to grow (for me.) I just can't say enough about this rose. It has everything going for it. But, again, my favorite thing about it is the lovely pale pink colour of it's semi-double blooms. To me it is breath-taking. I love "New Dawn."
