I am guessing that these roses would rebloom better if I dead headed them, but I really dislike deadheading, so don't do it very often. They are all listed as rebloomer on HMF, but I don't get much rebloom out of them at all.

Dortmund

Quadra

Picture is my Quadra fence, and I would love for it to look like this all season.

I can see why you would not be keen to dead head Quandra - what a job! She is gorgeous though. The only one of those roses that I have is Dortmund which does rebloom here but the first flush is by far the best.

I have the first three and I agree: They're stingy rebloomers. And Dortmund makes such beautiful hips that I stop deadheading it in fall.

I purchased Happy Climber because of it being a polyantha, and I just assumed it would bloom like The Fairy. Should have done more research. It is on a fence like the Quadra.

Dolly Parton was always stingy for me. Orange Velvet, California Dreamin', Circus, JFK, Lagerfeld, Stainless Steel.. those are the ones off the top of my head that were stingy stingy stingy. I know that there's probably a ton more in my yard, but I'm giving them all the benefit of the doubt.

I agree on Dolly Parton and JFK! I see that Dolly is appearing in most nurseries again this year, with some of them trying to call it a "new" rose. That first flush is gorgeous, but not much after that. She was also very tender and died down to 1 cane after the first year. Her parents are Fragrant Cloud and Oklahoma which both are good growers here. Lagerfeld is pretty tender, too. Never gets big enough to put out more than a few blosssoms.
Remember that children, marriages, and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get.

Dolly & Dolly Parton are two different roses.

I'm always frustrated that my gargantuan New Dawn doesn't rebloom, even though it's not classified as a once-a-year bloomer.

For me, DA Evelyn is pretty stingy with rebloom, even if I do deadhead. Of course, it may just be our ridiculous hot dry summer causing that problem.
