Thumb Plant Status Notes Events
Image Rose (Rosa 'Titian')
Prev
One of those unfortunate HT roses that died at the start of its second season from freeze-thaw cycling.
Image Rose (Rosa 'Trumpeter')
Have
Every summer when the underlying crocosmia gobble it up I think both instances of this rose must be goners. But every spring it comes back stronger than before. It lives in the occasional shade of Malvern Hills and in both cases the roots cannot be more than two feet away. Is there any red floribunda bred since that would take such abuse?
Image Rose (Rosa 'Vavoom')
Have
Planted in LBE, spring 2017. (Edmunds) Not quite so orange-shaded.. more golden. Not terrible in its first year.
Image Rose (Rosa 'Water Lily')
Have
The flowers are just over an inch across and they are very neatly formed. The plant is nicely branched, vigorous, and disease resistant, IME. It's a very unique plant, and I hope to see it re-enter commerce. (Palatine)
Image Rose (Rosa 'Westerland')
Have
What is to be said? The plant has grown to seven feet tall and a bit more than that across. It has more presence in the garden than all but a few huge climbing roses. It is immune to disease and deer. It does anchor one bed very ably. Still, I'm not sure I would plant it again. It's big, open, and not terribly foliferous for its size.

Have
The flowers on mine look nothing like the long-petalled ones in the photos. Rather, they look short and pleated similar to Sombreuil's. A bit yellower, different fragrance. The blooms, though, seem to last on the plant for more than two or three days.
 12:29 pm. Perfect buds and blossoms - and sharp red thorns! Rose (Rosa 'White Licorice')
Have
Planted in Aspen Bed near dugrock, spring 2017. It may be the first of this shipment to leaf out. (Edmunds) Since it came out at about the same time as Mme Anisette, it is reasonable to compare the two. Mme Anisette is quite good, but White Licorice is a great deal better.
Image Rose (Rosa 'William Shakespeare 2000')
Have
Gulch, west of Awakening, planted spring 2014.
 7:13 pm. Sometimes, in a humid summer, some pink creeps in. Rose (Rosa 'Winchester Cathedral')
Have
Perhaps six or twelve roses of the 500 cultivars I've grown are more vigorous. This vigor is a necessity because the plant is a Typhoid Mary of blackspot in my garden. With the possible exception of Cressida, no rose I've grown has produced more blackspot spores in a season than WC last season. So I dug it up and moved it far from other roses planting it on a rise that has great air circulation. It seems to be happy there getting four hours of really bright PM sunlight.
At Tagawa Nursery Rose (Rosa 'Yellow Sunblaze 2004')
Have
Actually, the rose I have is Yellow Sweetheart, Climbing, from RVR July 2017. It's planted near where Charlotte appears to have drowned.
Image Rose (Rosa 'Young Lycidas')
Prev
It grew vigorously and bloomed gloriously. Then it died quickly. All this within a dozen feet of where the same thing happened to Quietness. Reminder to self - replace both.
Finally Tall Enough - ZD in its Sixth Season Rose (Rosa 'Zephirine Drouhin')
Have
Anyone who knows the first thing about roses would tell me I'm an idiot for growing this in the shade of a dense alligator juniper. I'm sure it is true. Still, after six years it has built up to eight feet in height, and the foliage at that level gets a lot of light. It has produced a few very beautiful blooms so far, but I am expecting more as more its high branches catch the sun. (Antique Rose Emporium)
Image Yellow Lady Banks Rose (Rosa banksiae f. lutea)
Have
Two of them, both in pots. One from J&P and one from High Country Roses. They both seem to be growing quite well, now in July 2017.
Image Sage (Salvia nemorosa 'Caradonna')
Have
Bees! #Pollination Sage (Salvia nemorosa 'Mainacht')
Have
When twenty of these are in full bloom in my garden the sound of busy bees can be heard fifty feet away. The distinctive smell of salvia, though, may not seem attractive to humans. This is one of the more useful perennials for my AZ garden being drought tolerant, vigorous but not invasive, generous in bloom over a long period, and in a color that goes well with roses and iris.
Image Sage (Salvia nemorosa 'Sensation Rose')
Have
Growing near Rainbow Sorbet rose, we forget its provenance. We are, however, impressed by its persistance, since a number of lesser plants have perished here.
Image Sage (Salvia officinalis 'Berggarten Variegated')
Have
Four of six perished within days of being transplanted in June. Culinary sage in the herb garden does the same - to the point where we are growing iris and pinks instead. But with a spot of shade, it seems to do well enough.

Have
Over the course of five years it has grown to about two feet high and thirty inches across. This year, for the first time, it has borne a nice number of tiny blue flowers. It's not a plant that will wow; but it is a lovely anchor. I've planted artemisia in front of it and the subtle contrast is very nice.
Image American Wisteria (Wisteria frutescens 'Amethyst Falls')
Prev
Obtained spring 2017 from White Flower Farm, planted near the gulch by the driveway. Appears to have died before establishing.
