Awesome photos and growing!! Thanks for the winter rose fix. Wish I was there to see and smell all your wonderful blooms!! My Safrano Tea rose finished blooming last week when we had a cold snap,so all I have blooming now is a few Fairy roses.
Love your Rouge Royale-not familiar with this one-is it an English Rose? And your Mrs. BR Cant is delicious. Tea roses do very well here too, they can definately take the heat of summer. Also adore your Molineux.
Are you rooting rose cuttings in the smaller pots?

Molineux is wonderful. I like how you display the blooms. It calls attention to the color and the whorl pattern.

Thank you all for your kind comments! :):)

Replying Diane and Dot's question, I use the small pots for growing rooted cuttings, or tiny own root plants that I got in 2" pots. I usually strike rose cuttings in the shade, with perlite or with the floral foam method. With perlite medium the cuttings need enclosed environment for maximum humidity, but with the foam method they environment can be more airy.

Diane, I love roses with heavy dose of tea parentage too! Rouge Royale is a hybrid tea made by Meilland in France. The growth is very typical hybrid tea, with large coarse leaflets and all. I think it's the bestest rose I have :D Lots of blooms and high petal count even in the heat of summer.

Here's a photo I took just now:

Rouge Royale with two English Roses Abraham darby and Charlotte.
Most roses can grow well here, but unfortunately without proper winter rest the great old roses such as Madame Hardy cannot flower here :eek:
