I will end up being known as that Orange rose guy like I am here in Maryland. I'm opening this forum for everyone to share pohtos and thoughts on orange rose breeds. Feel free to submit a photo and some notes on how well it grows, smells, issues or praises. Over all have fun and stop to smell the roses.

Dolly Parton. Rarely ever without a bloom. Beautiful matte foliage and a fast grower. A scent that should be tottled and sold. it carries on the wind and is simply gorgeous. I have more photos in other foums of this and added to the database. Pretty disease resistant. Gets some black spot but its controllable.

this is a photo from last year its first year of growing. I will get more photos of it this year.

Gingersnap. Another constant bloomer. No scent but very bright flowers that do fade with in a day or 2. They are a neonish orange and have yellow and orange red areas like in the first photo. After the first flush the flowers seem to be much smaller but more plentiful. Maybe its the heat wave? Gets black spot every year but bounces back VERY fast and doesn't skip a beat on flowering even when the black spot is really bad.
first photo was from the nursery and when I decided to take it home.

Prominent. I cant really speak on this to well. I had it for one season before moving to NY temporarily. I had a friend care for it and the winter was just to strong for a potted plant. The blooms are smaller, sharply reflexed petals. Blooms bright yellow orange sometimes coral overtones and fades relatively quickly. Up right grower form the little experience Ive had. The foliage is beautiful on its own. matte medium green. the color is soft to the eye and pleasing. I would grow it for the leaves alone.

Salita. I'm trying this one again. My first oen got taken over by don Juan so it didn't bloom much. So far seems to be a slow grower. The blooms when its young are cup like and open with filly double blooms in a dome like shape. The color is a knock out. bright bright medium orange sometimes edging on the red orange side. for an established plant you get more of the high centered form on occasion as it opens. No scent and shiny beautiful foliage often with a maroon tinge. Pretty good disease resistance. Or above average. It diesnt really get sick even with gingersnap spewing spores.

Baby salita bloom. The color is flattened here but it is a pulsating neon orange scarlet.
Thumb of 2019-07-12/GoldBeardThePirate/c20ed2

MY QUEEN ROSE Kordes' Brillant. 1983
Pure unadulterated ORANGE . Rivaling the sun in its brilliant glow. Gorgeous deep leaves on a study plant. The blooms dont have much, if any, scent but that can be forgiven when getting lost in its ruffled, glowing ember petals. 10/10

NOTE: Uploading seems to have dulled some of the colors out. Especially on the last photo of Salita. But you get the general idea and I'm happy to add to the database or email photos to clarify. All of these oranges where super clean and clear oranges. Often the camera could not capture the intensity.

Honorable mention.
Unknown, I guess not technically and Orange but it teeters on the orange side in cooler months. A miniature rose from Safeway. no scent, medium to fair re-bloomer. Dark green shiny foliage . Makes me smile and playes will with the other orange roses in the garden.

Autumn Sunblaze (Miniature)
The color saturation in the picture makes it look red. But it's just as orangish as the Ring Of Fire. Very few thorns. Info listed on Star Rose's and Plants website is pasted below.

An improved Orange SunblazeĀ®. The bloom is a brighter orange that does not fade. The bloom and foliage persist through hot, dry summer months.

And so far I can attest for the flowers not fading in the hot summer. It has been miserable hot here. And they are still bright. And last very long. Most blooms have been on the bush for a week. And still look pretty good.

Oh, my sweet goodness!!! Your Dolly Parton picture is uber-exquisite!!! I'm in love with everything about it! And, luckily, I have a Dolly Parton rose bush that I got last year as a bareroot...it didn't bloom last year...but the bush has buds on it!! I can't wait!!

I love the intensity of your Gingersnap. Looks like a fabulous rose!!

I especially love your last picture of Prominent! I ordered it from Hortico...but it was thinner than a pencil and the roots were nonexistant...I threw it away. Although my Lord Horatio Nelson (that I got from them) is doing much better.

Oooooh! Your first shot of Salita is gorgeous!!! Lovey dubby

I usually don't like minis...but that one is really, really pretty! I love it!

Seth - I like your last rose the best... lovely!

I don't grow many HT and only really have one rose that could qualify as orange, although it has a reverse of yellow and I get shades of faded pinks as it ages. It sure stands out when it's in full bloom, which it does repeatedly through the year.

Sue - man, that's gorgeous...especiallly paired with your orange alstroemerias (I had to look that one up to see how to spell it. Hilarious! ) I love roses that have different colors to the back of the petals. Lovey dubby

Well, I guess I did once grow an orange rose...it was Parfum de Grasse...it's my Avatar picture. I loved this rose...but it died on me. Soooo pretty!

A lot of my orange roses haven't bloomed yet this year. It's been a weird season. 24 out of 73 of my roses haven't bloomed yet.

Anyway, these are the two that have bloomed for me.
America I always thought a rose with this name should be red but it's not! It's my climber that won't climb! This is its 4th season and it's still only a foot tall. But the darn thing keeps wintering, lol! I couldn't tell you if it has a fragrance cuz I can't bend down that far any more to smell it!
Thumb of 2019-07-14/seilMI/eb2f28
Waiheke, at least that's what the label said. I'm starting to wonder though. All the pictures on HMF look much pinker than mine. Mine is glo-in-the-dark ORANGE! It blooms a lot and has nice shiny leaves that seem fairly healthy. Has a nice fragrance too.
Thumb of 2019-07-14/seilMI/b0c137

I've had a lot of orange roses over the years. I'll have to take some time to go through my inventory list and pull some more pictures.

Seil, I don't think your rose is Waiheke. Waiheke is coral-pink and has a lighter reverse.

Seil - you too? I'm so surprised about that since you're in zone 6. I thought for certain I was the only one lagging behind in blooms. Zone 6 and you're still waiting for first blooms. How weird! Blinking I love both of your orange roses...but especially your America! Yes, I'm so glad that I grow roses in large pots...don't have to bend down to smell the roses. nodding

Zuzu - what a pretty pink rose! I love it!! Lovey dubby

I'm lagging behind in blooms here also to a point but my Brothers Grimm Fairy Tale is loaded with buds for it's second flush and my Baden Baden has one bloom currently but is setting a bunch of buds to get ready to bloom. She's only a foot tall this year but seems pretty happy. She hasn't bloomed until now this season. I'll have to cover her up more this winter to hopefully keep the die back from being so bad next year. Betty Boop put on a bloom for me but has since been busy setting up house in her new home.

Weluvroses Magnificent. I know the struggle of photographing orange roses. They always turn red and you want so badly to share how richly ORANGE they really are. Beautiful specimens.

That's what I'm afraid of, zuzu. Mine is solid orange with no reverse. It looks more like Goldbeard's Gingersnap than Waiheke. Disappointing but I still like this rose.

@cliftoncat Mika, checking the Guillot generosa series bred by Dominique Massad I bumped into a wonderful orange rose:'Reine Sammut'.
https://www.helpmefind.com/gar...
You seem to be the only one at least here (RF) growing it ( no pics yet in the dbase) . Has it bloomed to you at all ?. It appears planted in your French garden listing, as a recent addition. The colours are exactly the combination of basic bold orange/cherry with shades of pinks with some yellows. I would expect pernetiana in its parentage ( although undisclosed). As part of that series it is fragrant...if so I just Drooling I would love to hear about it!

Hi Arturo, right now we're in England, so I don't know whether Reine Sammut is blooming/has bloomed. But we fly out tomorrow evening, so I'll see how it's doing on Tuesday.

Tyvm for the kind words.What makes that rose even better, my mom found it at a road side sale. With both the plastic trunk tag, not sure what they are really called. DA roses seem to have them alot. And it had the advertisement tag as well. And she paid 2 bucks for it. It was super healthy and blooming away in a 1gal.

Some extra pics of Ring Of Fire

I don't have many true oranges I have lots of peachy apricot colors but I think this next year will be the year of the Orange rose I'm already looking .
But , I do have, and it is one of my favorites. Easy Does It
It goes all shades of oranges and pinky oranges it's a great rose.

You can't plant your new favorite rose if you are still watering your least favorite
