I'm already looking forward to next year. I just placed an order from Regan Nursery and got a 10% discount for ordering three roses:

Yabba Dabba Doo
Betty Boop
Raspberry Kiss

Betty will be a replacement for an older Betty Boop in my garden. The other two will be new to me.

Rosemania's site is open for business for 2016. Great prices and low shipping ($14 for three or fewer roses, $16 for any larger quantity).

Unfortunately for me, there's nothing new that I want. I have all the old standards already.

Ok, you made me look. I ended up ordering several from Regan Nursery.
Liv Tyler
Mother of Pearl
Wedgwood
Candy Cane Cocktail
Easter Basket

Candy Cane is a new one, the rest have been on my wish list for a while. Regan has Colette on their list but it is sold out. That's another rose I have wanted for several years.
Rosemania had just a couple I wanted. Normally I can buy the entire Weeks catalogue locally. I'm waiting to see what Edmunds offers. The order I received from them in 2015 was much better than 2014 and 2013.
The Austin order from 2015 may be my last from them. The roses were significantly smaller than the ones from Edmunds, and of course, there's no comparing them with the monsters from Palatine.

I hesitated over Candy Cane Cocktail and almost ordered it, but I know that it will be available at my local nurseries, where I'll be able to pick out the best-looking one myself. Star Roses are fairly easy to find. Even Home Depot carries them.

I hope you do get Colette one day. It's a fabulous rose.

That's good to hear about Edmunds'. I had given up on them, but i do have some nice Edmunds' roses from a few years ao. Oddly enough, some were ones I bought from Edmunds' during the late-summer half-price sale three years ago, when I didn't really expect anything great. I must admit that those "leftovers" were much nicer than the full-price roses I bought elsewhere earlier in the season.

I wish Palatine still carried Austins. The ones ordered directly from Austin keep getting smaller while the prices keep rising. Pretty soon they'll be on a par sizewise with the Austins from Chamblee, which cost less than half the Austin price.

Home Depot out here just carries Knock Out and Drift roses for the most part. Lowes gets a few HTs in around Mothers Day, but they are wildly misnamed. I picked up 3 Flamingo Kolorscapes this weekend at Lowes. They were only $3. Local nurseries carry Weeks roses, but I think only 1 has Star, and they are way overpriced.
Austin roses sent me a questionnaire this spring asking me to evaluate my order and I wish I had. I asked them not to substitute and yet they did. They sent a one-cane Strawberry Hill in place of the NEWER rose I had ordered! Turned out the Strawberry Hill grew better than the others I ordered. Still...
Some of the biggest and best roses I got this year were from Brecks (gasp!) in a late season 5/$20 deal. I wasn't expecting much, because they were offering roses of 5 colors for $20, then the next week, 5/$10.. I ended up with Miss Congeniality, Pretty Woman Rose, Doris Day, Smokin Hot, Royal Amethyst, Yabba Dabbo Doo, Pink Smoothie, Grand Amore, and a few others because once I saw how good the first order was, I bought more. Sadly, I killed Smokin Hot. Totally my fault. The others are doing better than some full price roses I planted in the spring. I think it is because I started them in large pots under the shadehouse where I could control conditions better. I moved them into the ground in August and they transitioned well. Next year, I may start all the bare root roses in pots. I know people on here have suggested that forever, but I'm a slow learner... Rolling my eyes. Someone will need to remind me come spring!
Kansas' spring weather is so unpredictable that it is hard to set a good delivery date for bare roots. I decided to have Palatine ship in November, and the rest in the spring. Surely one season will be suitable. Whistling

A great list, Margie! I see a theme developing with those last four.

The Bedard Pretty Lady is named Pretty Lady Rose. It's part of the Downton Abbey series and is named for Lady Rose.

Cindi, let us know if you ever see another of those 5/$20 or 5/$10 sales. It would be worth the price even if most of them died. Big Grin

I meant a color theme -- red blend, red with a lighter reverse. Parfum de Grasse is officially classified as an orange blend, of course, but it's much redder than most shades of orange.

Very, very pretty! I have to appreciate a florists rose that grows well in zone 6.

Here's my million dollar question. Have you ever seen or do you have a rose that is "speckled" similar to this rose? See link:
http://sproulroses.blogspot.com/2015/08/speckled-hulthemia.h...

Are there any speckled roses available?

There's this one:



And this one:



But I really want a yellow rose with orange polka dots! Or vice versa.

I guess there aren't too many around. I think the speckled Sproul rose is unique. The dots are well defined and the color contrast is very good.
Thanks for posting the photos.

Margie, are those blooming now? They are lovely. Plum Perfect earns the name.
I would enlarge and frame that photo of Pope JPII. The center glow is spectacular.
