I don't have an abundance of blooms but the few around the yard have been lovely.

They are so beautiful! I've wanted Yantai for a long time, but it seems not to be available anymore. Crying I have Watercolors Home Run too. Not only its shape and abundant colors, which brings vitality to my front yard, but also it's prolific and healthy. Even though it's in a 12" pot, it keeps blooming from spring. I need to deadhead it almost 2 or 3 times every week, and it is my only one rose with ZERO PM or BS in Seattle weather. If I had a large garden, I would grow dozens of them as front borders.

Thank you everyone!

Dainty Bess is one of my absolute favorites and was the rose that turned me on to singles.

Yantai is a little pale here. It's usually creamier. I got it in 2008 from Ralph Moore's nursery.

Both Watercolor and regular Home Run do not really like to be dead headed. I just pop off the spent blooms and leave the rest. They seem to rebloom even faster that way.

Everything looks great. Mine are still at least a week away.
It's a rose!!! It has nothing to do with life and death.

Here is a fellow who showed up after I cleared away a bunch of Baltic Ivy
and other messy brush in a part of the garden that hadn't been visited for
...well too long. It hadn't bloomed for who-knows-how-long until I cleared
up and bothered the earth around it and fed and watered its lots.

However, I don't remember the name of the rose. I've looked at the lists,
but can't see anything with this color of red and the pretty yellow/orange
in the middle. Can anyone help me? David

Beautiful, David! It's not the root stock Dr. Huey for sure. I wonder if it's Hot Cocoa. Mine gets that exact color sometimes.

Thanks, Porkpal.
I thought I had responded to your message yesterday, but no.
Yes, I'm glad I got to that corner of the garden. It always helps
to give roses some attention (perhaps like people).
Life lesson:
neglect = bad
attention = good

I have to keep reminding myself.

That's a fantastic rose that looks like it's just been waiting to show its stuff! Good to know it's not too late to show beds some love instead of giving it all to the weeds! : ))

Yes Seil, I can imagine why! Drooling I hope one day it gets into my yard. It is occasionally offered down here. Those red stamens... Lovey dubby .
Every time DB appears I get goose bumps...

Golden Wings is another one.

I can easily become specialized in singles too. Smiling

Yes! Isn't it so wonderful that beauty can be found in almost every kind of form. Simplicity is no obstacle.... Big Grin

Blessed are of those that can find this.... Big Grin

and in the gardening community this is easily understood and one can count them by the millions! Hurray!

Thank you Seil,

I tip my hat to you.

My roses have been wonderful this fall and have lasted and lasted. I've had a garden helper dead heading every week. I've been lazy about taking pictures but here are a few.
