Wow Sue! Drooling Your buff coloured WAR is stunning. My eye went straight to it. It's a Ducher noisette. : a climber to be added to my wish list. Not available down here, but I've been told, that if one wishes hard enough it may manifest one day Well you know about my soft spot for SS. It seems that it can handle quite some overhanging shade. 'Vesper' has an unsual brownish tinge that I like very much. I had to look up in HMF . I saw a bush literally covered in its blooms: another floribunda for my wish list of unavailables Sighing! .
Thanks for the pics.

Arturo, my Summer Song is in full sun so not sure if you were referring to my photo.

Yes, I was clearly misled by your photo looking at the backdrop with beautiful tress and...imagining *Blush* more trees up front too that provided some shade part of the day.
This question of shade really baffles me. I never know how much shade a rose bush will take, of what kind. I've got many bushes that shade each other simply because they are placed side by side in "full" sun, however during the day those that are placed up front in the sunnier side of a bed get full sun, those slightly behind get some shade from those up front. They don't seem to mind at all... Smiling So now I'm trying to explain myself what does the dictum ( at least six hours of full sun) mean exactly here. I guess that it will vary from place to place. Since many of the DA's have "built in" shade tolerance I figured that SS may belong to that group. Mine are half in the ground and the rest in bags. Those in the ground are in "full" sun ...whatever that means.... Hilarious! Trees at a distance ( east side) project shade early in the morning, whilst those placed in west do the same late afternoon. Most bushes have more than 6 hours direct sunlight from above during the growing season: mid September to mid March here. Now I suppose that long shadows during late fall/winter have no effect since they are not growing anyway. I also wonder if the bushes read that too... Confused
Its part one my learning curve here at my yard.... Smiling
Thanks for pointing it out. Thank You!

The deer have eaten most of my buds. All my roses are in my front yard and the deer just daintily snip them off. I only get to keep any flowers that are hard to reach. I'm in a constant war with the aphids to preserve my buds in the first place. I don't like to use anything stronger than neem oil (which only seems to reduce the scale of their onslaught) because my kids are as undeterred by the thorns as the deer and are constantly in my rose bushes.

Aphids are easy. Deer not so much.

For aphids all you have to do is spray the buds with water and wash them off of the buds. Aphids don't have lungs and once they have been washed off, they do not climb back up onto the rose.

If you are consistent and allow the beneficial insects to take over the management of the aphids, this is one problem that should go away.

The beneficial insect population is always behind on aphid control. There have to be enough aphids to sustain them, so they always show up later.

I'd rather weed than dust ... the weeds stay gone longer.

I was spraying with water last year and ended up with mildew on some😔. It's always something!

I still have wood rats all over our property, Lyn. So far we're leaving them alone. They build their big stick houses everywhere in the wild part of our property.
