Thanks! I plant my roses closely in groupings. That way I have lots of roses close together and when they grow and bloom they sort of intermingle with one another.

That front yard Florabundaville worked out especially well as because of the slope going up, I could get lots of roses in together. Access to prune is from the sidewalk in front of the house and then there is a path going to the back of that area off from the front yard.

What's the name of the orange rose in the first photo? I need an orange rose for my rose garden. I'm making it a lot like your photo with the plants closer together in groups. I might add some miniature roses in there too and Nepeta.

The small very orange one in the middle is Charisma, which I got at Roses Unlimited. It is not a very big bloom but oh does it sizzel! In back of it in an orangey peach is Outrageous.

I'll probably never get mine to look like that photo, but it's worth a try. Thanks for the info.

Clint - Charisma is an AWESOME rose.. I love mine. Very undemanding little rose. Mine's in partial shade and it brightens up that area like a lightbulb! If you're wanting an orange rose, Charisma, New Year, Mardi Gras, Oranges & Lemons, Wildfire, Oktoberfest, Disneyland, Vavoom.. all of these are nice orange roses. I have all but Disneyland & Vavoom.

Does Charisma have fragrance? I'm using mostly fragrant roses since my area is small. You have the prettiest roses I believe I've ever seen. I hope they come up with an orange Knockout for us rose challenged folks. LOL.

Unfortunately, I haven't found an orange with a massive smell. Sad Mardi Gras smells a bit, but the others really don't have a scent to write home about. And, if *I* can grow roses, ANYONE can grow 'em! Seriously! They're the easiest things ever! If you're wanting fragrant, try Memorial Day, Blue Girl (I'm prejudiced), Intrigue, Heirloom, Dolly Parton, Firefighter,... uh... thinking... hmm. drawing a blank here. ugh. Mr. Lincoln, Enchanted Evening, Medallion, Pure Perfume, Lagerfeld, Oklahoma, Barbara Streisand, .. can't remember if my Sunsprite has a scent.

gah, that's the only ones I can think of that you can smell strongly that I have (well, technically, I gave my Firefighter to my M-I-L for M'day). I have Fragrant Plum, but it hasn't bloomed for me yet (it's just a 1gal potted).

uh..... let's see: front row: Acadia Sunrise, Hot Tamale
Second row: Ebb Tide, Arizona, Lagerfeld, Strike it Rich
Third Row: Arlene Francis, Purple Heart, Europeana
Fourth Row: New Year, Purple Passion, Stainless Steel
Fifth Row: Tuscan Sun, Dolly Parton, Joseph's Coat, Paradise
6th Row: Montezuma, Voluptuous, California Dreamin'
7th Row: Cinco de Mayo, Tequila Sunset, Citrus Splash, Heirloom
8th Row: Charisma, Intrigue, Picante, Intrigue, Charisma,
9th Row: Oranges & Lemons, Mardi Gras, JFK, George Burns, Paradise Found, Austrian Copper
10th Row: Moonstone, Modern Tempi, Orange Velvet

that's just in the front yard. And I have a tiny front yard. I know there's at least 3-6 more that I've forgotten their names. I can see the sticks, but I can't place a name on them. Sad Thank goodness for labels. Hilarious! Somewhere also in my yard I have a Scentimental, but I have no idea where I put it as I didn't label it and it hasn't greened up enough to poke through the mulch yet.

Sorry, no fragrance on Charisma. I do have fragrant roses around it, for instance the mauve one, Perfume Perfection, smells divine.

I love orange roses myself as I really like vivid colors.

I love your colors. I was worried about the pink rose clashing with some of the other colors but your photo showed me that it doesn't at all.

I do think about colors when I am planting. I like a jumble of colors so my only hard and fast rule is not to put two of the same color side by side there in florabundaville. Exception was the four Sunsprites in a row in the very front. Then I continued that yellow theam by adding a Sunflare and a Julia Child. At the end is a pink rose though, so it all works.

Also close together means 12 to 18 inches here. But then there wold be a jammed up grouping and then path or access space all around it. So think island type bed to allow accress. That means I can go three or four shrubs deep because I can get at them from all sides. They are not in real rows though, didn't want it too even looking.

Have you seen the Rainbow Knockout Tree Roses? They are so beautiful. They have no scent, but I've never seen anything bloom like those!

I can't remember if I have seen the rainbow knockouts or not. I know I haven't seen them as tree roses. Be careful if you want to buy tree roses, they are not as hardy being grafted way up there in the air as the common shrub roses. Probably require extra care or potted and bring in garage for winter.

Thanks, Rita. I think I'm going to plant them in containers at the entrance of my house.
