Easy Does It
November is starting out beautiful here, with most roses displaying their deepest colors and complex scents. Easy Does It now has a fruity, crisp scent that was only mild earlier in the season.
Too bad Royal Amethyst isn't blooming; I wanted to post a picture in celebration of the Royals' big win! Hurray!

November started here with some rain, the best possible development for our drought-stricken location. I hope it rains enough to end the drought.

I love the scalloped petals on Easy Does It.

Part of the petals are scalloped from the wind beating them! We got 3 inches of rain this week, yay!

So glad to hear rain has come! Drought is so depressing- I recall some very discouraging years.

I placed my Palatine order today. I surprised myself by choosing no pastels this time, really drawn to bold colors now. I had been noticing my lack of red roses, and started missing them. Set for March shipping are:
Black Forest

Garden Delight

Out of Rosenheim

Roberta Bondar

Twilight Zone

Dark Desire

The 1812 Rose

Westerland

Ebb Tide

Buxom Beauty

Berolina
:
Orange Flare, a red-orange shrub/climber
Solero Vigorosa, a short floribunda

Wow! Lots of jewel tones, my favorite colors in fashion. I'd want to wear your roses. Hilarious!

Gartenspass strikes me as quite unusual in its color blend. A new one to me.

The rain last Sunday was not spectacular in its quantity, and it never rained again, but temperatures cooled down, so I hardly had to water the garden at all this week, and even the little rain we had on Sunday helped with weed-pulling. We are promised another smattering of rain this Sunday. At this point, I'm thankful even for weekly rain showers.

Here's the first bloom on my pretty Lynette from K&M. It will replace an own-root Lynette from Roses Unlimited that never amounted to much.

Lynette is a delicate beauty! That's a new one to me.
Neal what an order! Wow! Gartenspass is unique and beautiful. How did I miss seeing that one?
The 1812 rose is one of my top 5. The blooms stay deep red even in full sun, high heat and humidity. The petals fold together so evenly it doesn't even look real sometimes. I bought it under the name "Red Riding Hood Fairy Tale" rose. I'm wondering if it's going to get as large as my other Fairy Tale roses? I hope not! So far, after 2 years, it's only 3 feet tall and 4 feet wide.
Westerland smells soooo good but it is a monster, be warned! Out of Rosenheim and Black Forest Rose have stayed a decent size and bloomed pretty much nonstop all summer. The color on both was excellent in sun and heat. Your bright colors will be stunning! Thumbs up

My World War II Memorial usually has a hint of pink somewhere, most often a very thin pink edge on the petals. This time it has a peculiar pink splotch. It reminds me of the symbols they used to stamp on the back of our hands at discos or concerts and other places with admission charges, so we could go in and out without having to pay more than once.

The coral-pink edge on Lynette's petals grows wider as the bloom matures. Here's how it looks when it's open all the way.

I'd almost settle for one that blooms. Big Grin The own-root Lynette I bought from Roses Unlimited in 2009 has produced 3 blooms in the last 6 years, and it's planted in one of the best beds in the garden. Out it goes! I'm so happy that K&M was offering it this year.

3 blooms in 6 years is neither interesting nor entertaining! Six years is plenty of time for any rose to grow into itself; she just must be one who needs to grow on someone else's roots. I'm glad you found a more promising replacement.

Your Lynette bloom looks like folded fabric. I sure hope your new one blooms more often! I've never ordered from K & M, so now I have to go look. Whistling Sticking tongue out

In case any of you are Project Runway fans, I'm currently rewatching Season 10, and Lynette reminds me of the folded and pleated design elements Ven Budhu incorporates into most of his garments.

Yes! I have an aunt who designs clothing, and it reminds me of some of her folded designs.
Wish I had a picture to share.

Does anyone know anything about the Jackson and Perkin rose "Tropical Sun"?
http://www.jacksonandperkins.com/tropical-sun-floribunda-ros...

All I can find out is that J & P introduced it in 2012. I'm wondering if it has another name. I can't find it anywhere, though.
It's a floribunda. There is a HT named Tropical Sunset that looks like it, but they are not the same rose.

Roses are still blooming their silly heads off here, and temps went down to 31 this morning. I was out of town for a few days, and from what I read, we had winds of 60mph. My Zephirine Drouhin blew completely out of the ground. I guess I should have trimmed the long canes back when I moved it!
I don't know if it will survive, now. *Blush*

Good grief! That was some strong wind! ZD may be okay since its cool out, and the roots may be able to recover over winter. Still, what a bummer Thumbs down

The wind has been really gusty here too.

Cindi, you just reminded me of my last transaction with J&P. I ordered Tropical Sun and four other roses from J&P back in September 2011 and was told they would be sent to me before the end of October. After many reminders from me by e-mail and telephone, they finally sent them to me in March 2012. This is how they looked when I unpacked the box. Needless to say, they didn't make it.
