|[ Rose (Rosa 'Mary Queen of Scots') | Posted on November 10, 2019 ]
I have been growing this delightful scots rose for many years and love it for the fact it is the very first rose to bloom in my zone 4b garden. Hardy, fragrant, carefree, disease free....and the tiny blooms and leaves are perfection. Mary welcomes spring to my yard!
|[ Rose (Rosa 'Quietness') | Posted on November 10, 2019 ]
I have grown Quietness in my zone 4b garden for over 13 years. At one time I grew over 300 roses and this one was my favorite and remains my favorite to this day, long after many roses have left my garden. I consider it a near-perfect rose for cold climates. It's hardy to the tips, vigorous and tall, blooms profusely and repeats, the blooms are perfection, the color is cool and serene and is disease-free. Its only downfall is the lack of a strong fragrance, which some can detect but which eludes me, but you can't have it all.

Even though the hybridizer lists this as blooming early mid-season, it blooms every year for me in New Hampshire in the mid-late season, often continuing into the late season.
