Thumb Plant Status Notes Events
Image Rose (Rosa 'Queen of Denmark')
When it grew in my NJ Garden this rose was my favorite for as long as no other roses were in bloom, and nearly my favorite when it was in bloom with other roses, about two weeks a year in spring. Vigorous, it grew to three feet high and four feet wide. It branched nicely and covered itself with dark bluish green foliage. The two inch flowers were neatly formed and fragrant. And it never got a spot of disease.
---> from RVR planted at south edge of juniper canopy spring 2018 after a year in a pot.
Mezmerizing blooms Rose (Rosa 'Queen of Sweden')
There is something special about the cupped shape of its pale pink flowers. They can steal your heart. Sadly, both plants have perished. The one in the gulch from too much water, the other from not enough.
Image Rose (Rosa 'Quietness')
It was quite lovely. Vigorous and freely flowering it quickly became the glory of the rose garden. Then, as if gophers had discovered its roots and eaten them all off in an afternoon it collapsed.
JARP (Just another rose photo) Rose (Rosa 'Rainbow Sorbet')
If this were not the local deers' favorite confection I might be able to report this as my favorite rose. It is by far the most photogenic of the roses in my garden owing to its complex mix of yellow, and red pigments. Not too troubled by disease, of moderate vigor, its leaves are nibbled away by deer who jump fences and risk their lives on slippery rocks just to get here.
Image Rose (Rosa 'Red Eden')
Over the course of six years the three plants in my garden have built up to as many feet in height. The canes are still vertical and they branch near the end to bear reddish dark pink flowers that open slowly. It's not a plant that has wowed, yet; but it seems a good addition to the garden.
Rose (Rosa 'Rene Andre')
Shiny leaves and vigor in light shade testify to its wichurana heritage. This is only the second of more than a dozen cultivars to survive "Outside the fence" where they might be ravaged by deer, javelina, rabbits, and whatnot. (Sometimes it's the whatnot thay you have to worry about most.) I'll report back when it blooms. (Palatine)
Image Rose (Rosa 'Rise 'n' Shine')
When it is in full bloom it is glorious. It seems, however, that Rise 'n' Shine slightly overreacts to insults such as drought or lack of sun. This keeps it alive in adverse conditions that would kill most hybrid tea roses, but it also means that modestly good results only arise from perfect conditions.
Image Rose (Rosa 'Roberta Bondar')
Ordered six years ago from Palatine Roses the first one grew well enough for a year or two. Then the high pH of the soil began to weaken the plant. Finally its roots were nibbled away. Replacement ordered; sulfur treatments being arranged to manage soil pH.
Image Rose (Rosa 'Rosa White Out')
Entering its third year it approaches two inches in height and six inches across. For its size it is remarkably productive of blossoms which open cream and fade to white. In a decade this may be a real brightspot in the garden. The fruit trees thrive, but this is the sole surviving rose in a purchase of four from a fruit tree company.
Image Rose (Rosa 'Rosanna')
Over five years it has grown to eight feet in height and a little more in width. The flowers are a lovely coral pink and they have a crisp Granny Smith apple (or eglantine rose) smell to them; but I've only just begun training the canes to horizontal, so flower production is still moderate, at best.
A young plant repotted from a gallon pot.  Late June bloom. Rose (Rosa 'Rose Rhapsody')
Received as a gallon from Heirloom Roses in May 2017. Planted in the ground after six inches of rain in July. 29 July 17. Replaced Desiree Parmentier. Of the own root HT roses I have grown this is among the more promising: it is alive at the start of its second season.
Image Rose (Rosa 'Roxy')
Its shiny small foliage is suggestive of its wichuriana heritage, as is its tolerance of a bit of shade and its intolerance of dry soil. The flowers define the color "rose" and are neat little things in the damascene form. Not sure if it's a viable choice for my AZ garden. Two have perished from drought and competition. The new plants are own root. Short and very subject to damage from rabbits.
Image Rose (Rosa 'Royal William')
Did great in its first year. Then it slowly declined. No disease problems, but it did suffer from freeze-thaw cycling more than any successful HT rose can do here. It did not get high culture and may have been nibbled by gophers or suffer from alkaline soil.(Palatine)
Image Rose (Rosa 'Sally Holmes')
When I grew it in New Jersey it quickly shot up to head height and could cover itself in single white flowers. Perhaps it experiences a little too much shade or root competition from grasses as it only just hangs on, here. Trying to improve its lot by more regular weeding this year...
Image Rose (Rosa 'Savannah')
Palatine. Late March 2018. In a spot just a little too near Mme Isaac Perreire. Must move it when we move Felicite Parmentier outside the fence this fall.
Image Rose (Rosa 'Scentimental')
Heirloom Roses. Spring, 2018.
San Jose Heritage Rose Garden Rose (Rosa 'Secret')
Planted two in spring 2017, growing slowly. (Edmunds) Both perished from being overshaded.
In its Third Growing Season - Selfridges (Berolina) in Mid-Mornin Rose (Rosa 'Selfridges')
There are moments when I consider this to be my favorite hybrid tea rose. It's one of very few that grows vigorously and tolerates the freeze-thaw cycling we experience here in the mountains of AZ. The flowers are a lovely soft yellow that doesn't fade too much. They are high centered and they reflex nicely as they open. Not exhibition form, perhaps but quite lovely. (Palatine)
Image Rose (Rosa 'Sexy Rexy')
I once saw a specimen of Sexy Rexy four feet tall and so densely covered in bloom that the foliage was obscured. Mine approach 24 inches in height after four years of cultivation, and have yet to blossom. This year they are getting more water. It's mid March and already they seem happier.
Image Rose (Rosa 'Sheila's Perfume')
Two inhabit the garden, each nine inches tall. One bloomed, once. In terms of vigor (on its own roots) it is in the same league as Judy Garland. But it is equally persistant. Possibly if given generous quantities of perfect soil, moisture, and sunlight it would be a stunning rose. Unlikely conditions in my garden.
