Although the name sounds French, the LeGrice roses were created by E.B. (Edward Burton) LeGrice and his son Bill in England. They have always appealed to me because of the blends of gray, tan, silver, and lavender in most of the LeGrice roses (although some are just plain pink, which is also fine).

These are photos of my LeGrice roses. I have a couple of others that I've never photographed. Maybe I'll be able to add them to this thread this year.

I usually do these in alphabetical order, but I want a striking thumbnail photo, so I'm choosing Nimbus.

Jocelyn, a 1970 floribunda, is such an exciting rose that Sue gave me one to add to my existing one.

Here's another picture of Jocelyn, after it stops being mannerly and opens up to a much messier but equally gorgeous bloom.

Nimbus is one of the most exciting roses in my garden. It changes color constantly, so I'm going to post several photos of it to show the color range. It's a 1989 floribunda.

Plentiful is a 1961 floribunda. The blooms are the same shape as many Austin blooms, but they're smaller and are carried in a spray pattern.

Tom Brown is a 1964 floribunda. This might be the most difficult LeGrice rose to grow on its own roots. I've killed three of them so far and I would kill for a grafted one.

Vesper, a 1966 floribunda, is another rose that changes color. It looks like this in fall.
